Toyota Fortuner 2020 FAQs
Check out real-world situations relating to the Toyota Fortuner here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Will Toyota make a 3.3 litre diesel V6 engine in the Fortuner?
As far as we know, the V6 turbo-diesel widely tipped to power the next LandCruiser (the 300 Series) is still just a maybe for the HiLux range. And even if it did make it into the HiLux, it would almost certainly be restricted to a sporty GR badged version as Toyota leverages its Dakar rally experience into a marketing role. With that in mind, the V6 would be an unlikely starter for the Fortuner which is aimed much more closely at families and, for whom, seating capacity and running costs are far more important than the ability to get to 100km/h in a hurry.
Even then, there’s plenty of historical evidence to suggest that a V6 turbo-diesel HiLux will remain just an idea (a nice one, though). Toyota has never really taken the opportunity to share engines between its HiLux and full sized (ie: Not the Prado) LandCruiser ranges. With a couple of notable exceptions (all of them petrol-powered) the HiLux has remained a four-cylinder vehicle throughout its life. And when Toyota did build a (petrol) supercharged V6 HiLux tagged the TRD back in 2008, it was a sales flop.
In any case, a hot-rod Fortuner is probably not on the cards despite the HiLux and Fortuner sharing a lot of engineering and componentry.Show more
What do you recommend for towing a horse trailer and large draft-horse?
None of the vehicles you’ve listed are exactly low-maintenance units. They all have complex all-wheel-drive drivelines (which will be appreciated when towing a heavy trailer across a wet showground) and they use the latest common-rail diesel technology which is fairly intolerant of poor servicing.
As for a power tailgate on a ute, I’m afraid you’re out of luck. But some of the wagon versions of these vehicles can be optioned with powered tailgates. The catch there is that these vehicles use coil sprung rear axles (as opposed to the leaf-sprung ute versions) so they’re not as adept at towing. The Toyota Fortuner, for instance can’t match the HiLux’s 3.5-tonne limit and makes do with 2800kg; not enough for your requirements. The Ford Everest (based on the Ranger) is a little better at 3000kg, but still trails the Ranger’s 3500kg towing capacity and is right on your self-imposed minimum.Show more
What four-wheel drive should I buy?
The Fortuner is a tough and rugged vehicle, but it does have some shortcomings. The side-mounted third row seats is one thing we think could be done better, but it's the harshness of the suspension that gets our goat most - other SUVs in the segment (like the Ford Everest and Mitsubishi Pajero Sport, not to mention the SsangYong Rexton and Isuzu D-Max) all have better ride comfort and compliance.
Further to that, Toyota still hasn't upgraded the Fortuner with advanced safety gear. The HiLux now gets AEB, lane keep assist and adaptive cruise control, and so that tech should be rolled out for a 2020 update soon, too.
If you plan to do more on-road driving than off-road exploring, or if safety is a high priority for you, you might be best having a look around. If you're planning to see the country and take the back way while you do, a Fortuner might be a great match for you - and the brand's unrivalled network of dealers does make it an appealing option.Show more
