The new arrival is based on the Hilux truck, the 2020 Toyota Fortuner will be popular in worldwide markets. However, for now, we can’t find many countries where we can see it. This model is known as SW4 and as one of the Toyota products, it’s getting more involved in happenings in the domestic market. This mid-size SUV in some regions we can find as Land Cruiser Prado and in the USA 4Runner. The Hilux Surf is a name for the domestic Japanese market place. However, the Fortuner has more fans and more expectations to fill in. This is heading to be one of the top-selling SUV in this segment.
The most interesting part is the engine line-up. It uses the best Toyota drivetrains which is more than enough for ideal and smooth driving. With four and Six cylinder units can produce enough energy and torque, in addition to a choice among petrol or diesel units. The Japanese engineers did not confirm anything about a hybrid version.
2020 Toyota Fortuner Redesign
The design of a new 2020 Toyota Fortuner will be redesigned in some points but nothing too much visible. The new vehicle will be the fifth year of the generation so the update is inevitable. There were some announcements from the company, but we could see some hints from recently spy shots taken.
The facelift will be based on a current appearance with sharper lines. Some of the modifications will include LED lights and rear end. The sportier bumper and exhaust tips will make mid-size SUV more aggressive. For a better impression, there will be special packages with a new set of tires, suspensions, and shocks.
Interior Details and Safety
The interior of the new 2020 Toyota Fortuner will suffer a big redesign. since the base units will have base equipment, but the upper trim levels will have better offers. The Toyota will offer a large infotainment screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The extended options around the cabin are also available in upper packages.
Safety is on high level especially with more equipment added to this segment. Navigation and other advanced features are also part of the deal.
2020 Toyota Fortuner Engine
For this model 2020 Toyota Fortuner, we could mention that there are six powertrains available. But not every market has all six of them until Toyota provides other solutions for access. Every unit in this line-p is safe and stable and the future buyer can be sure about quality and durability.
The base solution under the hood of the Petrol SUV is the 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine, which is nevertheless a less stronger option. The four-pot engine can provide 160 HP and 180 lb-ft of torque, and this one is currently using Toyota Tacoma in the USA. However, for true buyers, the new Fortuner can provide a V6 engine with 4.0-liter displacement gaining 180 HP and 180 lb-ft of torque. The towing capacity and consumption are there with AWD drive configuration, this SUV performs much better.
After the petrol offer available, we can now represent the diesel engines available. From smallest to greatest, there is 2.4-liter four-cylinder D-4D powertrain, which can provide 250-300 pound-feet of torque. This one delivers 150 HP, which is not the strongest option. A larger unit is 3.0 liter naturally aspirated which offers the only 95 HP. However, after adding the D-4D system to the same displacement, the output grows up to 165 HP and 270 lb-ft of torque.
The 2.8 D-4D engine is available in most markets with 180 HP and 330 lb-ft of torque. There was some info about 3.0 or 2.8 unit for the Tacoma truck in the USA. However, the next step would be a huge upgrade to meet the standards needed for this market place. Emissions are the main problems of diesel drivetrain, especially regarding new generations.
