We take the Fortuner from a mundane life in the city to a thrilling adventure through the wilderness
However, for some, conforming was never an option. There exists a group of outliers who refuse to bend to the rules. Who couldn’t care if the world tears at them for refusing to live the life that is expected of them. They see though the doublethink, and rise above it.
