The 2016 Toyota Fortuner will be the second recipient of the new GD diesel engine family.

While these images are blurry, its easy to make out that the 2016 Fortuner has opted for a revolutionary design approach with a Lexus-inspired front fascia on one end and a ‘floating roofline’ at the other.

The interior sports Orange inserts on the center console, which seem to match the color of the seats. The center console is vertically stacked, and should include a 7-inch display, while parts like the steering wheel and controls for the automatic climate control system are expected to be shared with the Toyota Hilux Revo.
