With only three days left for the official presentation of Toyota’s new 2016 Fortuner on July 16, the rugged SUV has once again put a smile on for the camera.
Made primarily for Asian markets, along with select other countries around the world including Egypt, Argentina (as the SW4) and Venezuela, the new generation Fortuner builds on the founding of the recently announced 2016 Hilux, with Toyota’s designers doing their best to conceal its truck origins, especially on the outside.
The new Fortuner’s engine lineup will mirror that of the Hilux pickup truck giving the option of two diesels, a 2.8-liter four-pot with 177hp and 450Nm (332 lb-ft) and a smaller 2.4-liter four producing 160hp and 400Nm (295lb-ft), plus a 2.7-liter four-cylinder petrol with 164hp. Some reports have said that Toyota could also offer a 278hp 4.0-liter V6 petrol in certain markets.
We’ll know for sure this week after Toyota debuts the car in Thailand.
