Reported to launch in November.

According to a report on Autocar India, the 2016 Toyota Fortuner has started arriving at dealerships (for training/demo purposes), and its market launch will indeed take place in November. The second generation Fortuner's Indian introduction has been fast-tracked on account of the lifting of the ban on large diesel-powered cars in Delhi-NCR, a key market for the Fortuner.
