2020 Toyota Fortuner Philippines – The original Toyota Fortuner SUV was introduced in Thailand in late 2004. In 2005, he made his debut in the Philippines a few months later. Like the original 4-runner SUV, the Fortuner was based on the very popular Hilux pickup. Despite its rugged construction, its styling was modern and very urban with soft lines and spare tires hidden from view. Under that hood was the choice of D-4D diesel and one VVTi gasoline mill. The first generation Fortuner remained in production for over 10 years during the period received by the facelift.
The second-generation Toyota Fortuner made a global debut in mid-2015 and landed on the coast in early 2016. In terms of size, the current Fortuner is about the same size as the replacement model. It gets some extra centimeters in length and most of it goes to the front overhang. The front features a bold grille surrounded by a wide chrome bar, with a slim sweepback headlight next to it. Go to its carved sides and it gets a flare front and rear wheel arch. The C pillar is now painted black for the appearance of a floating roof. The finish is dominated by a smooth horizontal taillight linked by a chrome bar carrying the name of the model.
Inside, there are flowing dashboards reminiscent of Japanese car maker Corolla Artis. Its instrument cluster includes a multi-information display with a set of analog gauges and a central 4.5 inch color TFT. Below the high-mount center AC vent is a 6.5-inch touch screen. Front and rear automatic climate control is standard throughout the board.
Toyota Forteller has a familiar 2.7 liter VVTi inline 4 gasoline mill that produces 163hp and 245Nm torque, a new 2.4 liter D-4D diesel motor that produces 147hp and 400Nm torque, and a large pump that pumps 174hp and 450Nm torque The 2.8 liter D-4D diesel unit is equipped with three engines.
The 2.4L diesel engine can be paired with a manual transmission or an automatic tranny, and the 2.7 liter gas & 2.8 liter diesel power plant comes standard with a 6-speed automatic transmission. 4WD is standard on range topping variants with larger displacement oil burners. The rest of the Fortuner lineup is only available in RWD format.
The second generation Fortuner rides an updated IMV architecture. Its suspension setup remains the same as the independent double wishbone, with the stabilizer bar up font and the coil spring and stabilizer bar and live axle at the rear. In 2017, the Fortuner was upgraded and all variations were equipped with four-wheel disc brakes. The range topping variant is equipped with an 18-inch alloy with 265 / 80R18 tires, and other variations in the range will get a 17-inch alloy on 265 / 65R17 tires.
Toyota Fortula comes standard with a dual SRS airbag, a driver’s knee airbag, and an anti-lock brake system with electronic brake force distribution.

All variants come with a standard three-point seat belt for all seven occupants and the second row comes with two ISOFIX child seat anchors.

However, all Fortuner grades are equipped with Autonomous Emergency Brake (AEB) with pedestrian and cyclist detection, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, and traffic sign recognition as standard.
