One of our sources close is generous enough to give us the details of the 2012 Toyota Fortuner, which was discovered recently during the test rounds. The new SUV is reported to have undergone a great transition from the previous model with more class than look adorn the drop in premium lines of Toyota models like Toyota Prado and Toyota Land Cruiser. The front fascia of the new Fortuner is a total makeover; with new headlight design is much more expanded scale. The grill in the front, unlike before, is enhancing its beauty flat several times. The chrome trim around the grille seeks more elegant image with the touch of illumination. The transformation leads to the rear, as well as tail lights looks much more aggressive with its increased size.
The addition of the automatic gearbox is another perspective given to the SUV, which was lagging behind in the competition against the rivals Chevrolet Captiva and Ford Endeavour. Toyota India hopes to see major lift in the Toyota Fortuner sales with the introduction of the Automatic gearbox. Another strategy implemented by the manufacturer to ramp up the sales could come in the disguise of the two-wheel drive option for the entry-level variant with substantial price discount. However, the auto major might decide to carry forward the same 3.0 L D-4D common rail turbocharged and intercooled engine in the new version to offer a good mileage. The diesel engine will have the capacity highest power of 170 Bhp and superior torque output of 343 Nm.
