Previously all diesel Fortuners were mated to a manual tranny.

The Toyota Fortuner 2.7V (petrol) is targeted at those who value performance while the 2.5G (diesel) is for those looking at fuel economy.

With this, there are now 4 variants of Fortuner sold by PT Toyota Astra Motor -

2.5G 4x2 MT diesel, 2.5G 4x2 AT diesel, 2.7G 4x2 AT petrol and 2.7V 4x4 AT petrol.

A kitted up TRD Sportivo Limited Edition version is also available for those looking for a little bit more style.

The 2.5G AT Fortuner is equipped with 2-DIN audio visual system, automatic and dual air-conditioning, and a gated type shifter.

The Fortuner is also a market leader in its segment - between January to June 2009, Fortuner controlled 30% of the 4x4 Medium segment and 26% of the 4x2 SUV High segment. In the month of July, it extended its market share in the 4x2 segment to 33.7%.
