Toyota Fortuner 2016 model is based on ESTEC GD Engine 2800 cc as the top end Toyota Hilux Revo. As you will see it is a completely new look and it is also a completely new vehicle with all the comforts of a genuine Sport Utility Vehicle. Toyota now wants Fortuner to be known as Prado’s cousin and not as a Hilux sibling.
The 2016 Toyota Fortuner is underpinned by an updated IMV platform that will comply with the Toyota New Generation Architecture (TNGA). Akin to the current model, the next-generation Fortuner will boast of a ladder frame chassis, which should mean that the ruggedness would remain unaffected.
All variants are fitted with trailer sway control, which is designed to assist if a towed vehicle becomes unsettled by crosswinds, bumpy roads or sharp turns of the steering wheel. Maximum braked towing capacity will be three tonnes for the manual and 2.8 tonnes for the auto*.
A part-time 4×4 during day-to-day driving, owners can turn a dial to access Fortuner’s impressive four-wheel-drive ability in high or low range.
More Horsepower and performance
2500 cc 144 hp Toyota Fortuner has now been replaced with 2500 cc 150 hp 2016 Fortuner while 3000 cc 171 hp is now replaced with 2800 cc 177 hp. 2700 cc engine is retained but tweaked from 160hp to 166hp. Not an earth shattering boost in performance but still impressive in diesel given the lower cc engines.
Automatic transmission is now 6 speed and is selectronic so you get the convenience of auto and power of manual at your fingertips. 4WD technology has now also been improved.
The newly developed six-speed automatic transmissions has more steps and optimised gear ratios to maximise engine performance. As with new Hilux, stick-shift manual transmission Fortuners are equipped with the Intelligent Manual Transmission system (i-MT) supporting smooth shifting with rev matching technology.
The vehicle’s off-road prowess is enhanced by a rear differential lock with the componentry placed within the differential housing for greater off-road protection.
Toyota Fortuner Exterior
Sharp headlights, chrome accented bumper and a V-shaped grille gives Fortuner’s front a distinctive look that makes it different from not only Toyota Hilux Revo but also earlier versions of Toyota Fortuner. In the rear horizontal tail lamps are connected by a strip of chrome trim. Fortuner 2016 now also sits on a new stronger frame designed to withstand roughest of conditions.
2016 Toyota Fortuner’s wheelbase length remains unchanged at 2,750mm but it is 90mm longer in overall length and 15mm wider. It is though 15mm lower in height.
What about Suspension?
Semi-independent coil spring set-up has been replaced by a more sophisticated multi-link layout for better balance between ride and handling.
On the ride and handling front, an all-new frame bolstered by cross members, side rails and suspension towers that have all been strengthened, enhancing the torsional and bending rigidity of the frame. This not only improves durability but also drive quality and safety. The suspension uses a double wishbone at the front and a four-link suspension at the rear combination that has been redesigned for optimised comfort. An additional rear stabiliser has been installed to aid on-the-road smoothness and stability.
