The other lighting units have also been restyled while the front and rear bumpers have a new design. The Skid Plate below the front end is also new, emphasizing the ruggedness of the Fortuner. Giving the Fortuner 2.8 VRZ additional distinctiveness, the roof, A-pillars, wing mirrors and roof-mounted rear spoiler are all finished in black.

Additionally, the corner mouldings are specially shaped for aerodynamic benefits. Though a rugged SUV, it still has looks which are eye-catching in an urban environment. Both the 2.8 VRZ and 2.7 SRZ variants are fitted with 18-inch alloy wheels that have a new design as well.

Interior

Inside, the Fortuner 2.8 VRZ has a trim with a new design and colour, while the seat upholstery also has a new design.  

The new instrument panel features a revised Multi Information Display (MID) opening animation. Ambient illumination is provided to add a touch of class at night, while the key cover has been redesigned.

For added comfort and convenience, the new Fortuner 2.8 VRZ and 2.7 SRZ have been fitted with LED Interior Lamps, an electro chromic Rear-view Mirror (to eliminate dazzle) and the driver and front passenger can now easily adjust the seat with 8-way powered controls. USB charging ports are also available for powering or recharging personal electronic devices.

Flexible seating arrangements provide maximum seating capacity when needed. All three rows are available to accommodate seven adults in comfort. Alternatively, the second and third rows can be folded to provide a longer floor length and more cargo volume.

Powertrain

The proven Toyota powertrains are maintained with the availability of the new 1GD-FTV 4-cylinder common-rail diesel engine. This features a heavy-duty variable nozzle turbocharger and Intercooler. The 2.8-litre engine produces maximum power of 204 PS at 3,000-3,400 rpm and 500 Nm of torque from 1,600 rpm to 2,800 rpm.

A balance shaft reduces vibrations and lowers noise levels while high efficiency is achieved with the electronically-controlled common rail injection system that can deliver fuel at a maximum pressure of up to 250 MPa.

The Fortuner also comes with Variable Flow Control (VFC) Power Steering, which helps to improve fuel economy by reducing the power steering pump consumption torque. Toyota’s engineers have enhanced the steering feeling to achieve natural handling that matches the speed.

For the Fortuner 2.8 VRZ, there is also a SPORT mode which enhances the power steering for responsiveness.

The part-time 4×4 drivetrain provides for maximum capability on all surfaces, from smooth highway to muddy jungle tracks. With the shift on-the-fly capability, the driver does not have to stop the vehicle to engage 4×4, which can be selected by simply turning a rotary knob.

For stability enhancement, the drivetrain has Active Traction Control (A-TRC). New for 2021 in the Fortuner 2.8 VRZ and 2.7 SRZ is an Auto Limited Slip Differential (LSD).

Safety

Now, in line with Toyota’s efforts to reduce road accidents, the latest model also comes with Toyota Safety Sense (TSS). This is an integrated suite of active safety systems which make use of a camera and radar to monitor and detect other vehicles, and to take appropriate action to prevent an accident.

TSS, though available in many Toyota models today, has different elements and for the latest Fortuner, it comes with Pre collision System (PCS), Lane Departure Alert (LDA) and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) and Yaw Assist Function.

Unlike the TSS in passenger vehicles, the system in the Fortuner (as well as Hilux) has a Yaw Assist Function. This activates when lane departure is detected, and additional braking force applied to the inner wheels to direct the vehicle back into the proper lane position. The systems are also calibrated taking into account the usage conditions.

Options & warranty

At the time of purchases, customers can also include options such as Wireless Charger (new), Kick Sensor Powered Rear Door (new), Roof-mounted Monitor and Rear Digital Video Recorder. As with most of the models offered by UMW Toyota Motor, the new 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. Besides, customers will also be able to enjoy longer oil change intervals for the turbodiesel engine with a Revised Service Package.

The interval is extended to 10,000 kms or 6 months (whichever comes first), from the previous requirement of 5,000 kms/3 months.
