Toyota has now officially revealed the New Fortuner on their Thai website. The pricing starts from Rs.15.65 Lakhs for base variant. I hope Archit can help us to understand rest of the feature details which are mentioned in their language.
i will be happy be to help. but the link marun has given is in english only! :P also i noticed today that the Hilux Vigo pickup had a similar face though i dint see the fortuner. Maybe new one is coming soon to showrooms.
As a Fortuner owner, the changes what I have noticed from the above pics are:
New headlamps with power washers
New front and rear bumpers
New bonnet scoop
New clear tail lamps
New 17" alloy wheels
The rear spoiler and ski racks are the same
The dashboard is the same only the colour scheme is changed
New steering wheel with addition of bluetooth calling steering buttons (its a direct lift from Corolla Altis)
Cruse control ( Previous international Fortuners did have this feature)
New instrument cluster
New electric seats
New ICE with navigation ( I guess this will also be the same unit which is there in newly launched Altis)
As per the specs its the same old 4 AT
Engine specs remain the same with the same power output, hope they provide better sound insulation to the newer version.
Its just a cosmetic change, I wish they could have done some cosmetic changes even to the side profile also and most importantly they could have changed the design of the dashboard
My above observation is based on the Toyota Thai website, I am not sure how many of the above features do come into the Indian model also the question of AT Fortuner is still unanswered, I assume that this model will be launched soon as Fortuner in India is still CKD from Thailand and most importantly "THE PRICE" I don't know how much TKM will charge for the facelifted model.
FYI: Fortuner in Bangalore as of now costs Rs.25,60,000/- (on road)
Thanks for pointing out the differences Ram! Even i like the current Fortuner more though the instrument console looks good in the new one. Let's wait and watch whether all these new features make it to India as well.
