Toyota just released the latest Fortuner, 2021, and it’s a sight to behold for every passionate car lover who has followed the Fortuner journey ever since the vehicle’s launch back in 2005 and all the different versions of it that have been launched ever since. In this blog, we’ll discuss everything you need to know about the new Toyota Fortuner, 2021.
Firstly, three Fortuner variants are getting a facelift:
- SIGMA 4×4 (Diesel)
- Fortuner G 4×2 (Petrol)
- Fortuner V 4×4 (Petrol)
Two variants of the Fortuner, i.e. SIGMA and V Grade, will have a new front grille, revised bumper design, rear LED lights, new alloy wheel, advanced front, and silver skid plates. Meanwhile, the Fortuner G will have all the above-mentioned changes as well as some other minor changes to differentiate high-grade variants.
Fortuner V, which was previously 4×4, then became 4×2 due to the launch of SIGMA, will not be launched in 4×4 Power Train. Meanwhile, in the SIGMA variant, Toyota is introducing enhancements in the 2.8L 1GD engine. The turbocharger along with structural improvements in the electronically controlled common rail injection system and cylinder block are being introduced. The exhaust manifold changes mean improvement in horsepower as it has reached 201hp from 180hp, while torque has improved by 50Nm.
Other changes in the 1GD include a Balance Shaft addition, which improves the NVH of the engine. According to reports, the engine noise in the new variant will reduce up to 10db while accelerating. The fuel efficiency of the engine has also improved by 4%. The new variants are expected to be close to the Fortuner Legender, which has currently been officially launched in Thailand.
The Fortuner SIGMA comes with a 2755cc diesel engine, 201 hp at 3000 to 3,4000 Rpm, and 500Nm torque at 1,600-2,800 Nm torque.
