Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) has announced the launch of the new Fortuner. The 2nd generation Fortuner is priced in the range of Rs 25, 92,000 and Rs 31, 12,000 (ex-showroom New Delhi), and will be available in six trim levels.


The New Fortuner comes with a new 2.8-litre diesel engine with a new 6-Speed Automatic Transmission with sequential and paddle shifters and a new 2.7-litre petrol engine.


The 2.8-litre diesel engine delivers 177 PS and 450 Nm torque, while the 2.7-litre petrol powertrain generates 166 PS and 245 Nm of peak torque.


Hiroki Nakajima- Managing Officer, Toyota Motor Corporation said, “My entire development team was passionate about creating an ‘authentic SUV’, which we chose to interpret as a three-row, seven-seat Space Utility Vehicle (SUV). While this made it clear what was needed on the inside, we also knew that we needed a design that could be appreciated when viewed from the outside.


“Meanwhile, we discovered that customers find value in the pride of owning a vehicle with full-fledged 4WD capability as well. So even if they are just using it around town, we needed to enhance its 4WD performance. I am certain the new Fortuner’s enhanced all-terrain capabilities will satisfy even the most demanding customer. In the new Fortuner, customers will find value and prestige that goes beyond their expectations. I am confident that we have honed Fortuner into a machine that can take its rivals head-on, even in the highly competitive SUV category.”


Speaking at the launch, Akito Tachibana- Managing Director, Toyota Kirloskar Motor said, “Fortuner is one of our flagship models and has won many hearts globally and as well as in India. Its massive road presence and unbeatable performance has helped make its way to become the undisputed market leader in its segment.


“While evolving the needs of customers is paramount for us at Toyota when developing a product, the 2nd generation Fortuner is a reflection of our constant determination to make better cars.  We are confident that the new Fortuner will further delight our customers and continue its legacy to maintain its number one positioning in the Indian SUV market.”


Sharing his thoughts on Toyota’s new offering, N. Raja, Director & Senior Vice President (Sales & Marketing), Toyota Kirloskar Motor Pvt. Ltd said, “The Fortuner has been a market leader in its segment with 70 percent market share ever since its launch in 2009 and is better known as a true SUV with powerful performance. A Fortuner customer is ambitious, accomplished and requires a vehicle for both weekend getaways and daily commute. This discerning individual desires a highly capable vehicle that serves as a reflection of their own success. Today, we at Toyota Kirloskar Motor are proud to say our new Fortuner underpins all of the above. The 2nd generation Fortuner is loaded with fresh design, comfort, performance, durability, fuel efficiency and versatility. On the outside, the new Fortuner represents a compelling design that suits the advanced taste of modern SUV buyers. Under the hood, our engineering team has ensured that the Fortuner is equipped with the most advanced all-terrain capabilities that will cater to even the most demanding customer.


“Safety is a vital part of Toyota’s philosophy and we seek to uphold this principle in every single product that comes out of our stable. Today, as we launch the latest Fortuner, we are proud to say that it is equipped with a comprehensive and technically advanced range of safety features that offer advanced toughness that goes beyond just physical durability of the car. With the New Fortuner, we are certain to carry forward the brand legacy of undisputed SUV segment leader and keep the customers delighted.”
