Toyota Kirloskar Motor is reported to launch the new Fortuner in six variants: 4×2 Petrol MT, 4×2 Petrol AT, 4×2 Diesel MT, 4×2 Diesel AT, 4×4 Diesel MT, 4×4 Diesel AT. It appears that the 6-speed automatic gearbox is optional in all variants, while a 4WD system is exclusive to the top-end diesel variant.

The new Fortuner will source its engine from the Innova Crysta, although the text states that it will not be offered with the smaller 2.4L GD diesel option. So, the diesel variant will pack the bigger 2.8-liter GD diesel engine. The petrol variant will source power from a 2.7-liter four-cylinder petrol engine which was recently introduced on the Innova, though its availability will be initially restricted to Delhi-NCR and Mumbai, a dealer informed Indian Autos Blog.
