The Toyota Fortuner is one of the best selling vehicles in the Japanese automaker's portfolio. Check out this new facelifted Fortuner which gets a dual-tone paint job.
The Toyota Fortuner is the most popular Rs 30-40 lakh SUV in the country. Ever since its launch in 2009, it has become the go-to-buy with its combination of imposing presence, high driving position, feature-packed trim levels, powertrain flexibility, and trademark Toyota reliability. Currently, in its second generation, the Fortuner just received a mid-life facelift a couple of months back which gave it updated engines and added even more features. Today we came across this lightly modified Fortuner.
The pictures have been uploaded by KitUp Automotive, a Coimbatore based modifier. This Fortuner’s goes through a dechrome and has given a piano-black theme instead. At the front, the stock radiator grille and scuff plate get the black treatment while over on the sides, the ORVMs, door handles and the roof has been finished in black to give the SUV a dual-tone paint job. The alloys remain stock but have been repainted black from silver. Over to the rear, the Toyota logo, taillights and chrome garnishes have been redone in black. The dual-tone scheme is looking pretty nice and offers a nice contrast to the otherwise full white body of the Fortuner.
The modifier has not shared any interior images of this Toyota Fortuner, so we do not know if there are any modifications inside. The stock Fortuner already comes loaded with features like an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto & Apple CarPlay compatibility, connected car tech, 8-way power-adjustable front seats, 11-speaker JBL sound system, powered tailgate, ventilated front seats and more.
Prices for the updated Toyota Fortuner range from Rs 29.98 lakh for the base rear-wheel-drive petrol and goes up to Rs 37.58 lakh for the new Fortuner Legender top variant. Do note all prices are ex-showroom. Powertrain choices include both petrol and diesel options. The petrol is a 2.7-litre N/A 4-pot engine which makes 165 PS/245 Nm of peak power and torque. The oil-burner is a 2.8-litre turbocharged unit that churns out max power and torque figures of 205 PS and 500 Nm. Transmission options include a 5 or 6-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic. The petrol versions are available in rear-wheel-drive variants only. The Fortuner also comes with a rear locking differential and a low-range transfer case for the 4x4 variants which makes it a very capable off-roader.
