To launch for sale on November 7.
More Toyota Kirloskar Motor dealerships across India are receiving demo units of the 2016 Toyota Fortuner ahead of its national launch on November 7, reader images show. Bookings for the new Fortuner are currently accepted for a deposit of INR 2 lakhs.
From postings on the web, we gather that the Fortuner will be sold 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. Prices are expected to range between INR 27 Lakhs – INR 32 Lakhs (ex-showroom), and rival full-size SUVs like the Ford Endeavour and Hyundai Santa Fe. The Fortuner will have the distinction of being the only SUV in its class to offer a petrol-powered option.
The diesel variant will pack the new 2.8L GD four cylinder turbodiesel engine, while the petrol variant is powered by a 2.7L dual VVT-i four cylinder. Both engines are sourced from the Toyota Innova Crysta and can be had with a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic gearbox. A 4×4 drivetrain is exclusive to the diesel variant.
The range-topping variant will come equipped with LED projector headlights, LED daytime running lights, A-TRC Traction Control (TRC) system, Down Hill Assist Control (DAC) system, electric tailgate, electrically adjustable driver’s seat, cruise control, T-Connect infotainment system with satellite navigation and reversing camera.
