The Toyota Fortunzer has proven to be a customer favourite in the Philippines, outselling all other midsize SUVs. The second-generation model has been a leader in sales, not just in its category but across the entire Philippine automotive industry. Jumping ahead to October 2020, the latest model of Toyota Motor Philippines’ midsize SUV is now available.
The Toyota Fortuner is a durable body-on-frame SUV that rides on the company’s IMV platform, which it shares with its siblings – Hilux and Innova. Not only do these vehicles ride similarly, but they also feature corresponding engine options with modified outputs for each model.
With a more modern and sleek design, the updated Fortuner is sure to turn heads. For those looking for a sportier and tougher ride, there’s also an LTD trim available in either a 4×2 or 4×4 configuration.
Inside the Fortuner, you can find plenty of room to accommodate up to seven passengers. Plus, if even more cargo space is needed, the third-row seats can be folded away for a hassle-free solution. With this in mind, it’s easy to see why the Fortuner has the edge over its competitors regarding amenities too.
The G Variant of the Fortuner offered by Toyota Philippines continues the legacy of its predecessor with a ladder-frame chassis, providing adequate ride comfort on bumpy surfaces and bad roads. The 2023 model carries this forward with a few changes from the pre-facelift version released in 2016.
The 2.4-litre diesel engine offers robust torque at lower revolutions, while the 6-speed automatic transmission shifts gear seamlessly for an exceptional driving experience. However, the real star of this vehicle is its remarkable soundproofing technology that effectively keeps unwanted noise from entering the cabin so you can truly enjoy your ride.
The Toyota Fortuner features two exterior configurations: the G, V, and Q. For all three models, you’ll get a modernized take on the preceding model’s design with fresh grilles, bumpers in both
front and rear ends, and improved tail lamps – now even better through standard Bi-beam LED headlamps across all trim levels.
When considering the GR-S version of the Fortuner, you’ll find Toyota’s Gazoo Racing Sport kit included that gives off a sporty and energetic feel. This model comes with diffusers and spoilers to optimally enhance aerodynamics, distinct bumpers, 18-inch wheels, and an all-new rear bumper for improved performance.
The new Fortuner offers an array of luxurious interior upholstery options, including fabric, leather, and two-tone leather. The G and V variants boast the finest quality cloth seats, while Q trims only have premium leather seating.
The LTD variant is ideal for those looking for something extra special. Its cabin features luxe black leather complemented by eye-catching maroon accents that bring warmth to your driving experience.
