|Used Toyota Fortuner Overview|
|The Toyota Fortuner, also known as the Toyota SW4, is a medium-sized SUV based on the Toyota Hilux. Originally assembled only in Thailand, but later also in Indonesia and other countries, the Fortuner is built on the Toyota Hilux pickup truck platform. It features three rows of seats and is available in rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive among others. The Fortuner is part of Toyota’s IMV project in Thailand, which also includes the Toyota Hilux and the Kijang Innova (in Indonesia). The vehicle was designed by Toyota Technical Centre Australia.
A number of engine options are available depending on the country of sale, including a 2.7 L 2TR-FE and 4.0 L 1GR-FE V6 petrol with Variable Valve Timing and 2.5 L 2KD-FTV and 3.0 L 1KD-FTV common rail variable geometry turbocharger diesel models.

For the medium pick-up based SUV segment in those markets, Toyota offers the Hilux Surf (Japan), 4Runner (North America) and Land Cruiser Prado (Europe, Australasia and China). However, in some Central American countries, Toyota offers the Fortuner alongside the 4Runner and Land Cruiser Prado.

The Fortuner was unveiled in Columbia in 2005 and launched in 2007 as a replacement for the locally assembled Prado that had been under production for 9 years without any changes. The Prado continued its production until 2009. A new model was added in 2010, the Fortuner Urbana, with a gasoline 2.7 L engine in 4×4 and 4×2 models. In late 2011, as a 2012 model, Toyota started to sell the new facelifted version with a new front grill, new rear lights and a revised interior quality on the same versions and prices as the older version.
The Fortuner is available in the following versions:
Fortuner Urbana 4×2, with a 2.7 L engine.
All of them come standard with a 5-speed manual transmission or an optional 4-speed automatic transmission.
The Fortuner was unveiled in South America — Ecuador in 2005 and launched in 2007. Versions of the Fortuner have come from Venezuela and Thailand. There are various models released, originally only 4×4 and 4×2 options using a V6 4.0 L petrol engine were sold. Since 2010 a 2.7 L engine option has been released and the new face lift model has arrived.
The Toyota Fortuner was sold from 2007 until late 2009. Since 2010 the Ecuadorian government has exempted all hybrid cars from import taxes, which reduced the number of Fortuner cars sold because Toyota’s Hybrid Highlander Limited has a similar price and more features.
Two trims are available for 2011 – 4×4 and 4×2 – both with the 4.0 L V6 engine. The assembly plant is located in Cumaná, Venezuela.
The Fortuner was unveiled in South Africa in 2005 and launched in 2006. There are various models out and Toyota released a new model in 2009.

Initially there was only one variant sold in India of the Fortuner, which is the 3.0 L Common Rail Turbo Diesel engine, with leather upholstery and climatronic as standard. But at the 2012 Indian Auto Expo, Toyota launched 3.0 L 4×2 Manual and Automatic transmission.
The Fortuner was introduced in 2005 at the Jakarta International Motor Show. It is positioned below the Land Cruiser and the RAV4.
Initially the Fortuner was sold in 2.7G and 2.7V trim levels. The rear wheel drive 2.7G was offered in the base with fabric interior and the Luxury with leather interior and premium sound system. The 4-wheel drive Fortuner 2.7V is only available as the luxury model. The V trim with the 3.0 diesel engine is not officially sold in Indonesia, due to the heavier tax regulations imposed on vehicles with 4×4 drivetrains and engines having volumes of 3.0 L or more. It was specially imported for the Sumatra and Kalimantan markets.
The 2.7G is fitted with a 4-speed automatic transmission and a two-wheel drive with a 2.7 L petrol engine. The rear-wheel-drive 2.7G and 4×4 2.7V comes only with automatic transmission. The 2.5G was later added to the market and adds four-wheel drive powered by a 2.5 L diesel engine giving 75 kW (102 PS; 101 hp). It is mated to a 5-speed manual. Its high body model has been criticized as unstable, and not aerodynamic when running at higher speeds.
In mid-2009, a new variant was added to the lineup, which is the 2.5G with a 4-speed automatic transmission. The 2.5G can be ordered with TRD Sportivo body kits, which is also available as dealer installed options for other models.

The facelifted Fortuner was introduced in November 2008, together with the facelifted Innova and Hilux.
The Fortuner was introduced in 2005 in Singapore. Some problems include parking because of its height of 1.85 m not fitting in some car parks. The Toyota Hilux (which shares the same platform) also had poor sales for the same reason but sold better than Fortuner.
The Fortuner is available with two engines, the 118 kW (160 PS; 158 hp) rated 2.7 L or the 175 kW (238 PS; 235 hp) rated 4.0 L.

2012 Toyota Fortuner Minor Change model was released in late 2011. The front end is where a lot has changed including the grille, the headlamps and the bumper. Fortuner 2012 has a new more prominent radiator grill with three horizontal slats. The headlights get new projector lamps alongside conventional lights. The fog lamp housing has also been redesigned along with the front bumper which gets a scuff plate as well. The lower side of the front fascia is now more flatter than the old SUV. At the rear, a redesigned bumper has been added and so has been a new tail lamp cluster. The new clear lense tail lights get an integrated, circular brake lamp as opposed to a rectangular one on the outgoing model. The interior has also undergone a subtle makeover, the major change being the center console and the steering wheel. The old version had an interior which looked pretty similar to that of the Innova MPV. In the new version the dials give a unique feel.
