Whenever we think of new Fortuner we picture a sporty and macho SUV, the new model also looks athletic, but Toyota has introduced a slenderer design to probably create a more sophisticated image. There are some interesting changes to look forward to such as a new and creatively styled twin slat chrome grille along with a freshly sculpted bumper that has LED daytime running lights and fog lights covered in sufficient chrome. The 2016 Fortuner despite the changes is going to still look like a typical Fortuner contributed by the high shoulder line, huge wheel arches and twelve spoke alloy wheels. On the rear is LED tail lights and electric tailgate.

This powertrain yields 360Nm torque. The petrol car is equipped with a newly and innovatively designed 2.7-liter gasoline mill that pumps out 245Nm torque and 164bhp power.
