The Toyota Fortuner is the undisputed leader in the Rs 30-40 lakh SUV category. If you're planning for some aftermarket modifications for your Toyota Fortuner, then this tuned example may interest you.
The Toyota Fortuner has been the best-selling SUV in the Rs 30-40 lakh segment ever since it was launched in India way back in 2009. For over a decade now, it is the go-to-buy in its segment, and there are no signs of sales dipping anytime soon. Owners love the combination of trademark Toyota reliability, imposing road presence, high riding position, feature-loaded variants, and choices of powerful engines. Toyota launched the second-generation Fortuner in 2016 which came with an all-new design both inside and outside, but it is roughly the same size as the older model. The Rs 30-40 lakh SUV segment has seen new rivals coming up with the likes of the Mahindra Alturas G4, MG Gloster, and the Ford Endeavour which has been around for a while too as well. Today we came across a picture of a modified Toyota Fortuner which looks interesting.
The pictures have been uploaded by Fortuner Car Accessories Ph on Facebook, in which we can see this modified Toyota Fortuner from all angles. The stock grille has been replaced for this very aggressive looking unit. It is a vertical 6-slat design that is given a dual-tone finish. The grille wears a shade of matte black while the slats are finished in chrome to stand out. Other than the grille, this Fortuner looks to have been kept in largely stock trim. Overall, this grille makes the Fortuner really stand out in a crowd, but also give the front-end a toothy grin and it looks like Darth Vader’s helmet from the Star Wars movies. On the sides, however, it now rides on a set of bigger and fancier aftermarket rims. Around the rear facet, it now gets a custom bumper that houses quad exhaust tips.
Toyota Fortuner is now sold in its facelifted avatar and the prices range from Rs 29.98 lakh for the base rear-wheel-drive petrol trim and go up to Rs 37.58 lakh for the Legender variant, ex-showroom. As mentioned in their variant levels, the Fortuner has both petrol and diesel options. The petrol is a 2.7-litre N/A 4-pot engine which makes 165 PS of peak power and 245 Nm of max torque. The oil-burner is a 2.8-litre turbocharged unit that churns out max power and torque figures of 204 PS against 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 configuraton 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.
