New Toyota Fortuner delayed to 2017

So, if you were waiting for 2016 to upgrade to the new Toyota Fortuner which was revealed earlier this year; you might have to wait a little longer than expected.

Toyota officials have revealed that the next-generation Fortuner will come to India only by 2017. Considering localisation & vendor development, it takes at least 24 – 30 months for the brand to be ready with a new model and hence, 2016 is a very tough timeline to bring in the new Fortuner.

Powering the new Fortuner would be new & efficient GD series engines which include two power units (to be used on the new Innova & Fortuner):

  • 2.4L, 2GD-FTV, turbocharged diesel motor producing 148 BHP of power & 400 Nm of torque
  • 2.8L, 1GD-FTV, turbocharged diesel motor producing 175 BHP of power & 450 Nm of torque

The new Fortuner could be offered in 5 variants:

  • 2.4G 4×2 6-speed MT
  • 2.4V 4×2 6-speed AT
  • 2.8v 4×2 6-speed AT
  • 2.8V 4×4 6-speed MT
  • 2.8V 4×4 6-speed AT

Hey Ford, here’s your chance to capitalise with the new Endeavour.
