Toyota continues to produce sporty versions of its models from the Gazoo Racing division. The turn came to the Fortuner SUV. He received the GR Sport version, which has practically no technical modifications: most of the differences come down to cosmetic changes to the exterior. Such a Toyota Fortuner will enter the Indonesian market, where it will be offered with no alternative rear-wheel drive.
Externally, the Fortuner GR Sport SUV can be recognized by the “dark” exterior details, retouched bumpers, two-tone 18-inch wheels, tinted optics, and emblems with the name of the special version on the doors.
The salon is lined with black genuine leather. The Fortuner GR Sport has a multimedia system with a nine-inch display, a compartment for wireless charging of gadgets, electrically adjustable front seats and an additional screen in the ceiling for rear passengers. In addition, the SUV is equipped with an electric tailgate, a start assist system and an assistant when driving with a trailer.
The rest of the model is the same as the standard Fortuner available in Indonesia. There it is offered with two engines: a 2.7 petrol, producing 163 horsepower and 247 Nm of torque, and a diesel with a capacity of 149 forces (400 Nm). Both engines are combined with a non-alternative six-speed automatic and rear-wheel drive.
It is not yet known whether such a Fortuner will appear outside Southeast Asia.
In early 2019, Toyota promised to release a GR version of each of the models in its current lineup. Before the Fortuner, the Land Cruiser 300 GR Sport made its debut, which also received a more brutal look due to external details, including a body kit made of unpainted plastic with a radiator grill with Toyota lettering.
