The well-known Fortuner crossover coming from Toyota has been in the market for over a decade now. Although this model has received some minor refreshments and updates for the year 2018, it seems that it has already been on its way to appear as a 2019 Toyota Fortuner Facelift model. With three rows of seats and numerous improvements in terms of equipment, the new Toyota Fortuner will be a great choice for all kinds of adventures or family trips.
When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Toyota Fortuner, this mid-size crossover SUV should keep the same dimensions as its predecessor and keep most of those standard features we have already seen. However, the fans will also have the chance to see some significant updates and improvements in terms of styling. The new Fortuner will share its platform with the popular Hilux model and lots of lightweight aluminum will be used for its chassis. That way, this crossover will save some weight and boost its efficiency, acceleration and overall performance. The equipment you get will depend on the trim you choose – GX, GXL or Crusade. All in all, the Fortuner will appear more aggressive and get sharper lines, especially in the front fascia. You will notice its wider two-slat grille and its narrowed and more angular LED headlights and fog lights. In the back part of the vehicle, you will find its distinctive spoiler. The new Fortuner should stand on base 17-inch alloy wheels.
The 2019 Toyota Fortuner will provide some rather spacious cabin that offers three rows of seats for its seven passengers. The interior will be quite refreshed and it will undergo some serious changes and improvements. The carmaker will combine some gray and beige design on its comfortable seats. In higher trim levels, the seats will be heated and power-adjustable, but also covered in leather. The driver will get a multi-function steering wheel and a 7.0-inch touch screen display with the infotainment and multimedia system and features such as satellite navigation, audio system and Bluetooth. When it comes to safety, this crossover will include systems such as hill-start assist, traction control, a rearview camera and rear parking sensors.
There will definitely be more than one option offered under the hood of the 2019 Toyota Fortuner. It hasn’t been officially confirmed yet, but one of them could be a 2.5-liter four-cylinder diesel. Other version includes a 2.8-liter inline-four with 177 horsepower and there have been some speculations about a 4.0-liter V6. The expected transmission is either five or six-speed manual and automatic and all trims should get an all-wheel drive system. We will let you know as soon as we get more information soon.
