Toyota recently announced that it will delight its customers with another excellent SUV called the 2017 Toyota Fortuner. The long awaited Toyota Furtuner will be even better than its excellent predecessor offering additional space, comfort and luxury for the users. It appears that the new model will be based on the Global Architecture platform developed by the company itself. The platform is very similar to the Volkswagen MQB platform. We will soon give you an insight about the possible design, engine changes and the way the new 2017 Toyota Fortuner will look like. Stay tuned if you don’t want to miss a single detail about this excellent SUV.
The Toyota Fortuner will be revised both outside and inside. However, it seems that the exterior design has suffered more changes than the interior. The changes on the outside are apparent and they arrive in form of redesigned headlights and taillights that now arrive with LED technology and appear to be more efficient than the ones on the previous model. The doors will also be redesigned and their new design will contribute to more powerful appearance of the car. This time, the size of the wheels has also been increased, so we will be offered 17 inch alloy wheels. Mirrors will also be slightly redesigned. The overall appearance of the car won’t be changed drastically, but at the very first sight, you will be able to conclude that it is a brand-new model.
When you peek inside of the cabin of the 2017 Toyota Fortuner, you will notice that it has undergone many changes that made it better, appealing and more comfortable. We have already mentioned that the vehicle now sits on a brand-new platform, which suggests that there will be additional room for passengers even though the vehicle is lighter than the vehicle it replaces. The designers used high quality materials for the cockpit of the newcomer including wood and leather upholstery. The steering wheel will also be wrapped in fine leather. Some of the features that will make every drive easy are Bluetooth connectivity, new air conditioning system, digitally adjustable driver’s seat and others. When it comes to safety features, most of them have been carried over from the previous model, so we can expect ABS & brake aid mechanism, rearview camera, air bags, electrical brake force distribution and so on. There will also be a touch screen and navigation system.
What is hidden under the hood of the 2017 Toyota Fortuner? Well, the new model will be offered with two drivetrain options. The first one will be a 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine as a basic variant. The 2017 Toyota Fortuner will also be powered by a 3.0-liter power unit which ensures excellent performance. The engines are specially designed for great performance even in extreme conditions.
2017 Toyota Fortuner Release date and price
The price and release date of the newcomer are still unknown. We assume that this excellent vehicle won’t cost less than $44,000. Of course, the price will vary depending on the trim level you choose.
