TOYOTA PH UPDATES THE FORTUNER, INTRODUCES NEW TOP-OF-THE-LINE LTD VARIANT
Gadgets|November 2020
Continuing its streak of digital vehicle launches, leading mobility company Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) has started the last quarter of 2020 with a highly-anticipated update on one of the most popular models in its lineup, the Toyota Fortuner.

The New Fortuner range is headlined by the new LTD variant in 4×4 and 4×2 which comes in an exclusive design, followed by Q and V variants in automatic transmission, and the G variant available in AT and MT.

Starting at PHP 1.63M for the G MT variant, TMP assures Filipinos of great value for money with Toyota’s signature quality, durability, and reliability embedded in the DNA of the country’s best-selling and well-loved Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV).

During the online launch of the New Fortuner, TMP president Atsuhiro Okamoto recalled how the Fortuner changed the local automotive landscape at a time when entry-level sedans and Asian utility vehicles were the affordable crowd favorite.

“The Fortuner captured the hearts of many Filipinos as proven by strong sales. It has an SUV body perfect for the Philippines’ flood-prone streets, an array of variants including a fuel-efficient diesel engine, a macho look that satisfies desires, and most of all, an affordable price – making it an achievable dream!” said Okamoto.

“The new Fortuner is SMARTER, STRONGER and SAFER than ever! With its refreshed line-up led by the top-of-the-line premium LTD grade, the country’s best-selling SUV just got better!” he added.

Since the Fortuner’s entry in the local market in 2005, TMP has already sold over 220,000 units of this highly-recognized SUV. In 2017, the Fortuner was crowned best-selling vehicle in the country. Just this August, the model dominated the mid-sized SUV category with over 30% market share.

With the 2020 update, the Fortuner gets more confident, prestigious, safe, further proving itself a formidable and reliable SUV, perfect for any city or off-road drive.
