The Toyota Fortuner (Japanese: トヨタ・フォーチュナー, Toyota Fōchunā), also known as the Toyota SW4, is a mid-size SUV manufactured by Toyota. The Fortuner is built on the Hilux pickup truck platform. It features three rows of seats and is available in rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive configuration. The Fortuner is part of Toyota's IMV project in Thailand, which also includes the Hilux and the Kijang Innova (in Indonesia). Developed in large part by Toyota's Thai operations, the Fortuner has piggybacked the success of the Hilux and is now built in a number of countries including Egypt, India, Indonesia, Argentina and Pakistan.

The name "Fortuner" comes from the English word, Fortune.


While the first generation Fortuner was developed in Thailand by Thai and Japanese engineers, the facelifted version of the Fortuner, as well as the Hilux and Innova, was designed in Australia by Toyota Australia, which is also responsible for developing the second generation Fortuner.[1]

This car was the best selling in its category (SUV/PPV) in the Philippines and Thailand, and is hugely popular in India and Pakistan.

The Fortuner is not sold in Japan, Europe, North America, or South Korea. 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 and Australasia). However, in some Central and South American countries and New Zealand, Toyota offers the Fortuner alongside the 4Runner and Land Cruiser Prado, like in Panama, Ecuador, Colombia, and Guatemala.

Specialized variants with a naturally aspirated 5L-E engined is offered to governments, organisations and the UN alongside with other utility vehicles such as the Prado, Hilux, HiAce, and the 70 and 200 series Land Cruisers.[2][3]

The first generation Fortuner was unveiled at the December 2004 Thailand International Motor Expo and released in early 2005. It is positioned below the Land Cruiser and above the RAV4. Model codes included: TGN50, GGN60, TGN60, KUN60

Toyota Fortuner 2.5 G (KUN60R; pre-facelift, Malaysia)

Initially the Fortuner was sold with 4 different types of 2 petrol engines and 2 diesel engines. All variants were offered in RWD or 4WD configuration, with 5-speed manual transmission and a 4 or 5-speed automatic transmission. Its high body model has been criticized as unstable, and not aerodynamic when running at higher speeds. In August 2012, the 2.5 L common-rail turbodiesel 2KD-FTV engine was upgraded to a variable nozzle (VNT) turbocharger which was equipped in the 3.0 L common-rail turbo diesel 1KD-FTV since its release in 2005 to increase power and torque about 60%, also reducing fuel consumption up to 30%. With this VNT equipment, now Fortuner can accelerate from 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) in about 11 seconds (less than 10 seconds for 3.0 L engine).[4] It was launched to commemorate Pertamina's successful expedition from Jakarta, Indonesia to Rome, Italy (a distance of roughly 20,000 kilometres) using a group of Fortuners.[5]


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.

Trim levels are G and G Luxury for rear-wheel drive diesel and petrol, and V for 4×4 Diesel and petrol. The common rail turbo intercooled diesel has functional scoop on its hood.

In 2007, Toyota Thailand dropped the 4×4 petrol model and replaced it with a two-wheel drive petrol version.



In Argentina, it is assembled in Zárate and sold as the Toyota SW4 in petrol and diesel versions.[6]


Like in Argentina, it is known as the SW4 in Brazil. In this market there are two trims available. Diesel 3.0 litre 16-valve turbo with automatic 5-speed transmission and Flex (Petrol) 2.7 litre 16-valve VVT-I with 4×2 traction, 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic.


Launched in 2005, the Fortuner in Brunei is available in 2.5L Manual G trim with and 3.0L Automatic V trim. The 2.5G is available in 2WD while the 3.0V has full-time 4WD.


The Fortuner was unveiled in Colombia 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 in production until 2009. A new trim was added in 2010, the Fortuner Urbana, with a petrol 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 grille, new rear lights and a revised interior quality on the same versions and prices as the older version.[citation needed]

The Fortuner is available in the following trim levels:

  • Fortuner Urbana 4×2, with a 2.7 L engine.
  • Fortuner Urbana 4×4 with a 2.7 L engine.
  • Fortuner Plus Diesel, with a 3.0 L turbo engine.

All of them come standard with a 5-speed manual transmission or an optional 4-speed automatic transmission.[7]


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 trim levels 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 since then new face lifts models have arrived.[8]

The Fortuner was widely sold from 2007 until late 2009. In 2010 the Ecuadorian government exempted all hybrid cars from import taxes, which reduced the number of Fortuner cars sold because Toyota's Highlander Hybrid Limited had a similar price (after taxes, fees and exemptions) and included more features. In late 2011 the Ecuadorian government changed its hybrid car tax exemptions to cars with a maximum engine of 2.0 litres, leaving out the Highlander Hybrid. Since then the Fortuner has regained market share.[citation needed]

Current trims sold in Ecuador:

  • Fortuner 4×4 2.7 L: I4 engine, Power - 162 Hp, Torque - 256 Nm at 3,800 rpm
  • Fortuner 4×4 4.0 L: V6 engine, Power - 234 Hp, Torque - 376 Nm at 3,800 rpm

All trims come standard with a 5-speed manual transmission or an optional 6-speed automatic transmission.


The Fortuner was unveiled in Egypt in 2010 and launched in 2011. It is available in two trims with two petrol engines: the 4-litre V6 1GR-FE, and the 2.7-litre inline-four 2TR-FE. All have automatic transmission and 4×4. The car is assembled in Egypt at Arab American Vehicles.


Toyota launched the Fortuner in India in 2009.[9][10] It is assembled at the Bidadi, Karnataka plant of Toyota Kirloskar Motor Private Limited from imported CKD kits.[11] Fortuner production increased to more than 950 vehicles per month from the initial 500 units per month.

Initially there was only one trim sold in India, which is the 3.0 L 1KD-FTV I4 Common Rail Turbo Diesel engine 4×4 MT, with leather upholstery and climatronic as standard.[12] But at the 2012 Indian Auto Expo, Toyota launched 3.0 L 4×2 Manual and Automatic transmission.[13][14] The top-of-the-range Fortuner 3.0 L 4×4 AT was introduced to the Indian market in January 2015 [15] alongside with a 2.5 L 2KD-FTV I4 Common Rail Turbo Diesel engine with 5-speed manual and 5-speed automatic transmission.[16] This 2.5 L variant was only available in 4×2 configuration.

The Fortuner is the highest selling SUV in India in its segment in mid 2019, by a considerable margin, averaging more than 1500 units monthly.[17][clarification needed]


The Fortuner was introduced on 8 July 2005 at the 13th Gaikindo Auto Expo in Jakarta.

Initially the Fortuner was imported from Thailand and 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 drive trains and engines having volumes of 3.0 L or more.

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 come only with automatic transmission. The 2.5G was later added to the market in 2007 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. Since then, the Fortuner is assembled locally at Karawang plant to fulfill the local market and comply with the Euro 2 emission standards.

In mid-2009, a new trim level 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.

In August 2012, together with the Hilux, the engine has now received a variable nozzle intercooled turbocharger upgrade otherwise known as VNT. The diesel mill now pumps out a maximum output of 106 kW (144 PS; 142 hp) at 3,400 rpm and maximum torque of 343 N·m (253 lb·ft) at 1,600-2,800 rpm.[25]


Pakistan started local assembly of the 2.7L Fortuner in March 2013. This SUV remained the best selling in the segment and was welcomed by the customers. It got hugely popular among the government officials and offices as well. Indus Motor Company found it a huge success and launched new variants in the future.[citation needed]


The Fortuner was introduced in 2005. It fills in the gap between the smaller RAV4, and the more premium Land Cruiser Prado. It is sold in 2 trim levels: the entry level G, and the top-spec V.

The G models have 3 drivetrain options available; the 2.7L 2TR-FE gasoline engine with VVT-i technology, which produces 118 kW (160 PS; 158 hp) at 5,200 rpm and 241 N⋅m (178 lb⋅ft) of torque at 3,800 rpm and comes with a 4-speed automatic transmission, or the 2.5L KD-FTV engine with common rail diesel (D-4D) technology, which produces 75 kW (102 PS; 101 hp) at 3,600 rpm and 260 N⋅m (190 lb⋅ft) of torque at 1,600–2,400 rpm that either comes with a 4-speed automatic transmission, or a 5-speed manual.

A new feature for the Fortuner 4×4 V Diesel, 4×2 G Diesel Automatic trim levels was an Audio system with Navigation Global Positioning System.[26]

The Toyota Fortuner was, for some time, the best-selling mid-sized SUV in the Philippines, being a more affordable option as opposed to its larger and more expensive SUV siblings, as well as its reliability and durability. However, sales has faced stiff competition from other offering rivals such as the Mitsubishi Montero Sport, Chevrolet Trailblazer as well as Isuzu Alterra/MU-X and Ford Everest.

In August 2017, the Fortuner was updated with an introduction of the new 2.8-litre 1GD-FTV engine that replaced the old 3.0-litre 1KD-FTV engine used in the outgoing model and received more additional features such as Silver side steps, rear disc brakes, LED fog lights, 6-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters (replacing 5-speed automatic transmission), Downhill Assist Control (DAC) and ECO/PWR drive mode selector.


The second generation Fortuner was launched in May 2016 with two trim levels: 2.4 VRZ AT 4×4 turbodiesel and 2.7 SRZ AT 4×4 petrol.[37] In January 2017, both variants obtained EEV status.[38] In September 2017, the 2.4 VRZ became the 2.4 4×4 AT (dropping the VRZ branding) and two additional trim models were introduced: 2.4 VRZ 4×2 AT and 2.4 VRZ 4×4 AT.[39]


The second generation Fortuner was first launched on 27th September 2016 with a Petrol variant. Then in late 2017, Toyota Indus introduced the Diesel Sigma 4 trim level of the Fortuner. It adds more features over the old solo petrol variant e.g. Power Back Door, Rear disc brakes, etc. In January 2020, Toyota Indus also launched a base petrol variant of Fortuner naming it Fortuner G, the up-spec variant as Fortuner V and the diesel variant as Fortuner Sigma.


The second generation Fortuner was launched in the Philippines on 14 January 2016 with two new diesel engines (2.8-litre 1GD-FTV & 2.4-litre 2GD-FTV). The 2.7-litre petrol engine is now Dual VVT-i. The G trim is offered with two engine options, the 2.4-litre diesel engine with Variable Nozzle Turbo or the 2.7-litre petrol engine. The diesel engine can be paired with either a 6-speed manual transmission or 6-speed automatic transmission, while the petrol can only be paired with 6-speed automatic transmission. Standard on the G trim are manual climate control, 17-inch alloy wheels, colour-keyed outer door handles, halogen projector headlamps and 6.5-inch touchscreen with navigation. The V trim adds 18-inch alloy wheels with dual-tone design, chrome door handles, dual-beam projector headlamps and smart key entry with push start/stop button. The 4×4 V trim exclusively has a 2.8-litre turbo diesel engine, stability control, hill start assist and side curtain airbags. The 4×2 V and lower trim levels only have airbags for the driver, driver's knee and passenger.

In August 2017, the Philippine-spec Fortuner was refreshed for the 2018 model year. Rear disc brakes became standard on all trim levels. For the G trim, the interior colour was changed from Chamois to Dark Brown and added automatic climate control and rear parking sensors. While the V trim gained corner sensors and LED fog lamps. The 4×4 V trim exclusively gained Downhill Assist Control (DAC) and a rear differential lock.[40][41]

In September 2019, the Fortuner received Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration as standard across all variants for the 2020 model year.[42]


The Fortuner went on sale in Russia in October 2017. The Fortuner sold in Russia is only available in 4×4 with 2.8-litre turbo-diesel and 2.7-litre petrol engines, with either five-speed manual or six-speed automatic gearbox. Four trim choices are offered: Standard, Comfort, Elegance and Prestige.
