2012 Toyota Fortuner: SUV Version of Facelifted HiLux Makes Asian Debut

After last week’s presentation of the redesigned 2012 HiLux in Europe, Toyota went ahead and introduced the Asian market version of the pickup truck, called HiLux Vigo in Thailand, as well its SUV sibling, the seven-passenger Fortuner. Both the HiLux Vigo and Fortuner sport the same styling revisions with their European counterpart including the new front end with the chromed out, razor edge grille, new alloy wheel options, and interior refinements such as the redesigned instrument panel plus trim and equipment updates. In Thailand, the Fortuner SUV is offered with two diesel engines, a 3.0-liter unit producing 163HP and a 2.5-liter delivering 144-horses, and a 2.7-liter gasoline unit rated at 160-horsepower.
