New engines and a lighter chassis expected.

Following reports and pictures of the 2016 Toyota Fortuner undergoing real world test, and here’s what the SUV could look like, published by 4×4 Australia magazine.

As IAB’s earlier reports say, the new Fortuner (and Hilux) could be lighter than the current version, given that there’s a new chassis underneath. Also, the duo is expected to get new engines as well.

The new Fortuner is likely to make its Indian debut at the 2016 Auto Expo.

Coming back to the rendered image, up front, there’s the massive and imposing chrome grille, which has a new trapezoidal shape. The new headlamps appear to have grown in size as well. Also, the crease that runs from the headlamp on the front fender looks more prominent. The new bumper also houses the LED daytime running lights, just below the fog lamp.

While the picture has made it to the magazine’s December cover, the same publication also shared a render of the Hilux pick up a couple of weeks ago. As mentioned above, the pick-up which has the same platform as the Fortuner, will receive all the updates as well.
