2016 Toyota Fortuner’s front exposed – Spied

Posted on: Mar 14, 2015 - 8:58pm IST

Heavy chrome usage with a Lexus-like grille observed.

The front-end of the 2016 Toyota Fortuner has been revealed in a new spyshot from Headlight Magazine. Earlier the nose of the 2016 Toyota Hilux (the pickup on the same platform) was leaked, and both models, unlike the current generation, will have more individuality in the next gen.

The 2016 Toyota Fortuner gains sharper projector headlamp, thick chrome usage on the grille and foglamp, and new alloy wheel pattern.

The 2016 Fortuner’s headlamps are slimmer and sharper, while the dense chrome grille is complemented by chrome usage on the foglight enclosure.

The design is likened to the Lexus’ philosophy and ‘Spindle Grille’ with the report stating that a Lexus-like design would make the SUV look more premium than the pickup version.

While we await confirmation, reports say that new diesel engines will be seen on the new gen Fortuner along with petrol units, paired to manual and automatic gearboxes with 2WD and 4WD options.

    They should stop this crap cheap diesel already. Europe is phasing out those cheap crap pollutant diesel already. In third world asia, we could only do as much as euro 2. All diesel sold in third world asia are not even euro two. All are bloated, except the hyundais and kia diesel that were brought straight from europe to third world asia. in europe, your diesel must be euro six or your out. Here, in third world asia, even the chassis of this garbage diesel are obsolete agricultiral chassis. They sell them like kubota, at about 500 dollar. Because a diesel kubota used in the farm has no technological disadvantage over any diesel vehicles sold in third world asia aniway, sans the aircon and sound system. All diesel vehicles sold in third word asia are cheap crap pollutant garbage. Ever wonder why China dont have this garbage despite the fact thatbthe parts are mostly built by them. CHINESE DONT LIKE GARBAGE, BUT THIRD WORLD ASIANS DO.
