The unrivaled Toyota Fortuner, the king of large SUVs, has been refreshed with a 2021 model. And packed with new features and technologies that are expected to be more popular than ever. The engine is more powerful. The comfort of living beings will make life easier, there are also new designs. But is this really a new Toyota legend and what is India preparing for? Read and understand.
Toyota Fortuner 2021 Facelift breaks cover new designs, features, engines, etc.
This full-featured legend looks even sportier with the new baffle grille design that we know from other modern Toyota models. Also new is the front bumper and offers a sharper look.
The lighting fixtures include new dual LED projector headlamps with LED DRL models different from the standard model. The chrome part of the regular model is high-gloss black. With 20-inch alloy wheels, two-tone paint and a similar philosophy applied to the rear of the car.
Therefore, it is the best model in Thailand that has a completely different style and a new name – Toyota Legender.
The interior is much the same but with updated features and technology thanks to the larger 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system available in Apple CarPlay. To provide more information the dashboard has been updated. It charges wirelessly via your smartphone, ambient lighting, and a 360-degree camera. The Legender, on the other hand, offers other features such as a larger 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, white accent panels, seven airbags, and collision avoidance systems, lane departure warning. Also, it had other safety features such as dynamic manual cruise control. In the Toyota Safety Sense package. There are several variants of Fortuner gasoline and diesel engines on the international market, but diesel is the most popular in India. The in-line 2.8-liter four-cylinder now puts out 204 horsepower. And 500 Nm of torque. The same engine as it stands in India produces 177 horsepower. By comparison, this is an obvious leap forward.
We anticipate Toyota will continue to offer Fortuner 2.7L petrol engines in India. The transmission options for the Indian market are likely six-speed manual and six-speed automatic.
The Toyota Fortuner is the benchmark for all SUVs in India, not just its sector. The current model is still the king of popularity and competes with more functional SUVs like the Ford Endeavor or the Mahindra Alturas.
The BS6 version of the Indian Fortuner has currently priced between Rs 28.6 lakh to Rs 34.4 lakh (Ex-showroom).
Launched Time in India
Toyota has yet to confirm whether the new Good Luck Fortuner has arrived in India and hasn’t even released a new version of the ‘Legender’, but we expect Toyota to launch the new Good Luck Tuner in India in 2021.
