Both engines are offered with manual as well as automatic transmission options. Petrol variants are only offered with a RWD system while diesel is also offered with 4×4 drive system.

Based on the new Hilux Revo pickup truck platform, the new Toyota Fortuner is built on a ladder frame chassis. The Fortuner doesn’t shy away from a challenge, thanks to its impressive ground clearance, wheel articulation, 4×4 system with low transfer case, steep approach and departure angles. All this was tested by us at the recently organized off-road Experience Camp.
