Big, macho and reliable, the Fortuner has been a runaway success right from day one. Now facelifted Fortuner caught testing in Bangalore and thanks to Wicky3453 for the spy video. We’ll know soon enough as the updated Fortuner will be launched at the Auto Expo in January 2012.
Cosmetic upgrade coming soon will ensure the Fortuner maintains this popularity. Going by changes to the thai model, the SUV’s chrome front grille will grow in width and the headlights will be new too. A restyled front bumper and larger air-intake scoop on the bonnet will add to the new Fortuner’s mini -Land Cruiser looks. Clear lens tail-lamps will be the only changes to the Fortuner’s rear while the interiors will receive darker faux wood detailing.
The trusty 3-litre D-4D diesel engine will continue but there is a possibility of an automatic transmission being added to the Fortuner line-up. Sources also claim that the firm will introduce a low cost two wheel drive version of the car too in order to boost sales along with its current all-wheel drive model. (See the video below the jump)
