Powered by all new 2400 cc and 2800 cc ESTEC GD Turbo Intercooler VNT and 2700 cc VVT-i engine the Fortuner is engineered to provide the best driving experience in all road conditions and situations.
2.4L and 2.8L ESTEC GD Common Rail VNT
Smoother, quieter and more responsive. The new 2.4-litre and 2.8 litre, 16-valve DOHC GD Common Rail Turbo Diesel Engine with VNT takes fuel efficiency to the limit without sacrificing power and tenacity on the road.
GD Engines come with ESTEC (Economy with Superior Thermal Efficient Combustion) technology and is a downsized turbocharged direct injection engine with superior thermal efficient combustion. This engine features a combination of a cylinder head with an integrated exhaust manifold and a turbocharger, and achieves high-speed combustion using a fan spray direct and port injection system and a high in-cylinder tumble ratio. The GD engine is capable of both seamless and invigorating acceleration while also ensuring superior thermal efficiency. We are therefore expecting superior performance with minimal fuel use.
As indicated above, GD engines use commonrail fuel injection technology operating at ultra high pressures of up to 135 mpa (1350 bar or about 19,580 psi) which is about 8 times more than the pressure of conventional fuel injection systems within a “common rail” that feeds the injectors on all four cylinders. This is combined with a 32-bit ECU standard with Toyota Hilux Revo and Toyota Fortuner which controls fuel quantity, valve-timing, and boost pressure at different engine parameters resulting in best fuel economy and also full utilization of power during acceleration. Pilot injection is also utilized by the common rail fuel system to smooth engine operation. Small amounts of fuel are introduced into the combustion chamber prior to the main injection event, reducing lag time and promoting more continuous and complete combustion. Exterior and interior engine noise is also reduced.
2.7L Variable Valve Timing with Intelligence (VVT-i) Engine
The advanced 16-valve DOHC 2TR-FE 2.7-litre petrol engine is in a class of its own. The VVT-i delivers smooth, responsive acceleration while an integrated roller-rocker arm facilitates reduced friction for excellent fuel efficiency. This advanced engine is both low on noise and vibration.
