In February 2020, Toyota rolled out the BS6-compliant Fortuner without paying any discount for the upgrade. Now, the carmaker has increased prices by Rs 48,000 across all variants of the BS6 Fortuner.
Two engine options are offered to the Fortuner: a 2,7-liter petrol and a 2,8-liter diesel. The gasoline engine churns out 166PS/245Nm when being fitted to a 5-speed manual and the diesel model generates 177PS/420Nm paired to a 6-speed manual transmission. Both engines both come with an optional six-speed option. With the automatic transmission the diesel engine enjoys a 30Nm increase in torque. Toyota offers only the diesel engine for the Fortuner 4×4 drivetrain, with both manual and automatic gearboxes.
With the BS6 upgrade the Japanese SUV didn’t receive any new functionality. It remains a well-equipped model that includes features such as leather upholstery, powered tailgate, seven airbags, and cruise control. On June 4, the facelifted Fortuner will make its world debut with a revised front fascia and possibly some new features too.
