The next generation Fortuner 2016 will be powered by a new family of ‘GD’ engines developed by Toyota. There will be a 2.4 litre diesel producing 160 bhp power and 400 Nm torque and a 2.8 litre diesel producing 177 bhp power and 450 Nm torque. Underpinning the SUV will be a brand new ladder frame chassis. The engines will come mated to either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission along with a four-wheel drive system as an option.
The 2016 Toyota Fortuner did not make its India debut at the 2016 Auto Expo. However, TKM did showcase the new gen Toyota Innova at the Expo. Also, while it was earlier being reported that the launch will take place soon after the Expo, it was later said that the launch of the new Fortuner would actually take place only by November, 2016. In a latest development, however, Toyota Kirloskar Motor India has shown its displeasure NGT’s ban on Diesel cars powered by engines displacing 2000cc or above. TKM has said that it might need to shelve it plans to bring the latest Toyota vehicles to India if such a ban becomes a permanent feature. It maybe noted that the new Ford Endeavour and the Chevrolet Trailblazer have already started eating into the sales of the Fortuner. Hence, Toyota needs to launch the new Fortuner in India at the earliest.
