Under the hood, the Fortuner 2.8 VRZ comes with a new 1GD-FTV 4cylinder common rail diesel engine with a heavy-duty variable nozzle turbocharger and Intercooler. The new engine produces maximum power of 204 PS at 3,400 rpm and 500 Nm of torque.

Further complementing the engine are features like the Variable Flow Control (VFC) Power Steering, a Sport mode which enhances the steering wheel for responsiveness, and a part-time 4×4 system.

The Fortuner 2.7 SRZ on the other hand, carries on the existing 2TR-FE 2.7 litre naturally-aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine producing 166 PS and 245 Nm. Both the 2.7 and 2.8-litre variants get a six-speed automatic transmission, and an automatic Limited Slip Differential (LSD).

Last but not the least, the Fortuner range comes with a 5-year/unlimited mileage warranty, subject to conditions stated in the Owner’s Handbook. This will be welcome by owners who clock high mileage each year as they can enjoy peace of mind for the full 5-year period.
