2021 Toyota Fortuner Teased


Tokyo: Toyota has released a teaser of the 2021 Fortuner facelift ahead of its launch that’s been scheduled on January 6.

The makeover has added a sense of freshness to its appearance and there are a host of updates.

The four-wheeler reportedly got a revamped front end featuring a larger grille, sleek-looking LED projector headlights with LED DRLs, sharper character lines, revamped front bumper with larger curtains, slightly smaller fog lamps and silver skid plate among others. There is also a set of new multi-spoke alloy wheels and updated wing mirrors. At the rear you will see new LED taillights. There’s also a new sportier looking version joining the line-up- the Toyota Fortuner Legender.

The larger air dam is surrounded by bigger curtains on either side.

Other updates include LED ambient lighting, a moderately updated instrument cluster, multi-functional steering wheel, electrically adjustable front seats, wireless phone charger and nine-speaker JBL audio system, seven-airbags, 360-degree camera view, Toyota’s safety sense, collision prevention system, lane departure warning and radar-guided dynamic cruise control among others.

Keeping up with the competition, it gets a new 8.0-inch touchscreen system that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Toyota Fortuner facelift will continue to source power from the BS6 compliant petrol and diesel engines. First up is the 2.7-litre, four-cylinder petrol motor that puts out 164 bhp and 245 Nm of peak torque. Then is the 2.8-litre, four-cylinder diesel engine that has been remapped to churn out 201 bhp and 500 Nm of peak torque.

Transmission options will include a six-speed manual gearbox and a six-speed sequential automatic torque convertor unit. The diesel engine will also get the four-wheel drive variant with two-wheel, four-wheel high and four-wheel low range.
