Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) begins its last quarter run with the launch of the much-coveted new Toyota Fortuner. This new Fortuner range is headlined by the new LTD variant in 4×4 and 4×2 which comes in an exclusive design, followed by Q and V variants in automatic transmission, and the G variant available in AT and MT.
Starting at a tag of P1,063,000 for the G MT variant, TMP assures Filipinos of great value for money with Toyota’s signature quality, durability and reliability embedded in the DNA of the country’s bestselling and well-loved sport utility vehicle (SUV).
“The Fortuner captured the hearts of many Filipinos as proven by strong sales. It has an SUV body perfect for the Philippines’ flood-prone streets, an array of variants including a fuel-efficient diesel engine, a macho look that satisfies desires, and most of all, an affordable price — making it an achievable dream,” TMP president Atsuhiro Okamoto said during the online launch.
“The new Fortuner is smarter, stronger and safer than ever! With its refreshed line-up led by the top-of-the-line premium LTD grade, the country’s best-selling SUV just got better!” he added.
Since the Fortuner’s entry in the local market in 2005, TMP has already sold over 220,000 units of this highly-recognized SUV. In 2017, the Fortuner was crowned bestselling vehicle in the country. Just this August, the model dominated the midsized SUV category with over 30-percent market share.
With the 2020 update, the Fortuner gets more confident, prestigious, safe, further proving itself a formidable and reliable SUV, perfect for any city or off-road drive.
The new Fortuner LTD’s look is made more striking and more elegant coming in the two-tone color black roof color lineup, a bolder and sportier front and rear bumper design, and machine-cut 18-inch alloy wheels. Split-type LED headlamps and LED front foglamps, sequential turn signal lamps, and the redesigned LED rear combination lamps give the LTD variant a more dynamic design while maintaining visibility on the road.
The Q and V variants also get LED foglamps and redesigned LED rear combination lamps, as well as bi-beam LED headlamps with LED line guide — daytime running lights. G variants also now come with Bi-beam LED headlamps with LED DRL.
Ingress is smooth and easy with smart entry and push start system for LTD, Q and V grades. The LTD variant features an elegant interior in leather with maroon accents, as well as galaxy black trim and interior illumination which adds to the sophisticated interior look of the vehicle. The Q variant also gets the classy black leather interior complemented by a dark wood trim.
Comfort and entertainment are guaranteed the whole journey for the driver and passengers as LTD and Q variants have eight-Way power adjust front seats, and front seat ventilation system for the LTD variant. Never lose power with the wireless charger and rear USB chargers available on LTD, Q and V grades, and experience premium sound quality over the LTD variants’ nine-speaker JBL sound system. Feel at ease throughout the ride with front and rear automatic control for V grades and up.
The New Fortuner LTD and Q variants are powered by the 1GD-FTV engine which gives 201 hp max output and 500 N-m max torque, while the V and G variants have the 2GD-FTV engine which gives 147hp max output and 400 N-m max torque.
The 2GD engine is improved for the new Fortuner V and G variants and enjoys five percent improvement in fuel efficiency versus the previous generation Fortuner.
