In mid January this-year, we posted an article of 2021 Toyota Fortuner (facelift) spotted disguised for the first time in Thailand. While the spotted trial car did not give us a good look at what changes to expect from the full-size SUV, we decided to take the recent spy shots as a base and render the new Fortuner in full detail to uncover all the secrets.
Our rendering artist Mohammed Afraz has envisioned the 2021 Fortuner facelift with changes on its front-end featuring a sharply-designed new grille, sleeker LED headlamps and redesigned bumper housing a revised fog-lamp assembly. Furthermore, the new SUV might get triangular faux air intakes, silver front skid plate on the chin and and a new set of alloy wheels.
That’s the only hint we get from the newer spyshots as rear pictures are not clear. However, we will not be surprised if it gets sleeker taillights and redesigned bumper at the rear. The interior is likely to receive minor changes like new steering wheel, seat upholstery, revised gear lever and a new infotainment system with smartphone connectivity.
In India, the facelifted Fortuner will continue to be available with BS-VI compliant 2.7-liter petrol and 2.8-liter diesel engine options as regards to powertrain choices. Toyota also offers a 4.0-liter V6 petrol, and 2.4-litre & 3.0-litre diesel engine options for the international markets.
The segment-leading SUV was originally supposed to start production next-month in Thailand, but that will be delayed by 1 month to June 2020 due to coronavirus outbreak. So now it’s global unveil is delayed to mid this-year probably in June or July, while the launch in India may happen by the end of this year or early 2021.
