This Toyota Fortuner receives a plentiful of modifications inspired by the Toyota Hilux. The result is completely stunning.
Toyota Fortuner has always been the number one option in the full-size SUV segment in India for as long as we can remember. Toyota’s best-selling SUV has all it takes to become the favourite vehicle for Indian customers, from the outstanding road presence, the incredible reliability and excellent performance. In addition, the Japanese car manufacturer is also well-known for its good after-sales service and solid brand image. Thanks to all these admirable attributes, Toyota Fortuner has successfully remained its popularity throughout the years.
Apart from the commercial success, the Toyota Fortuner also holds a special place in the heart of the car enthusiasts. This special interest in the SUV leads to the boom of modified Toyota Fortuner. Especially, this following car will introduce a unique way to modify a Toyota Fortuner.
This modified Toyota Fortuner is based on the Toyota Hilux which is currently on sale in the international market. According to recent reports, the Hilux is likely to be brought to the Indian market. The SUV is reported to be spotted in India a few days ago, which makes the Indian launch of this SUV even more likely. Before we get more details about the possibility of the India-spec Toyota Hilux, let’s check out this modified Toyota Fortuner with full inspiration from the Hilux.
On the front end, the modified Toyota Fortuner gets a complete makeover inspired by the Hilux frontal design. There are new sleeker headlights with LED DRLs along with rugged black bumper and sporty fog lamp assembly. In addition, it also receives a thick chrome bar, blacked-out radiator grille as well as underbody skid plates. These new elements make the front end design even more robust and brawny even though the stock version already looks rugged.
The majority of updates are found on the front end. However, there are still a couple of retouches delivered on the side profile and rear end, for example, the sporty black decals with SPORTIVO letterings as well as thick black plastic cladding around the wheel arches and black alloy wheels. On the rear end, there is a black strip with FORTUNER inscribed across as well as blacked-out wraparound LED taillamps. These modifications have instantly boosted the brawniness of the Toyota Fortuner to a new level.
Recently, the Toyota Fortuner has received its much-anticipated facelift in the international market. It is expected that the facelifted Toyota Fortuner will make its way to the Indian shore later this year or early next year. In the meanwhile, the India-spec Toyota Fortuner has recently welcomed the TRD limited edition to the line-up. The upcoming facelift is likely to come with a new 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine which can put out 204 PS and 500 Nm. There will be other additions in terms of equipment, comfort, convenience, safety and connectivity for the upcoming Toyota Fortuner.
