Back in April, we told you about Toyota’s plan to launch a special edition of the Fortuner, and now, it’s here. The Toyota Fortuner TRD Limited Edition has been launched at Rs 34.98 lakh for the 4x2 diesel-automatic version, and Rs 36.88 lakh for the 4x4 diesel-automatic variant (all prices, ex-showroom).
- Fortuner TRD gets head-up display, 360-degree camera and more
- Available in diesel-automatic form only
- Priced at a Rs 2.30 lakh premium over standard Fortuner
Yes, there was a Toyota Fortuner TRD Celebratory Edition launched just last year but this version is BS6-compliant and also packs in more features.
So what exactly is new about the 2020 Toyota Fortuner TRD Limited Edition?
From the outside, the 2020 Toyota Fortuner TRD looks largely identical to the TRD Celebratory Edition model launched late in 2019, but this one has got more equipment. As part of a ‘Special Technology Package’, the Fortuner TRD gets a head-up display, auto-folding ORVMs, a 360-degree camera, a dash cam, an air purifier, puddle lamps, a tyre pressure monitor and a door-mounted wireless smartphone charger for rear seat passengers.
Interestingly, while this equipment package is exclusive to the Fortuner TRD, Toyota is now offering the auto-folding ORVMs and 360-degree camera as official accessories for the standard Fortuner as well.
The rest of the package is more or less the same as before, with the Fortuner TRD sporting a ‘Pearl White’ paintjob with a black roof, blacked-out 18-inch alloy wheels, a redesigned front bumper with faux skid plate, a black-and-maroon interior colour scheme and lots of TRD logos inside and out.
What are the Toyota Fortuner TRD’s engine options?
There’s not much in the way of variety with the Fortuner TRD’s powertrain options. It’s available only with the upgraded, 2.8-litre, 177hp diesel engine paired with the six-speed automatic gearbox, though buyers can choose between a two-wheel-drive and a four-wheel-drive variant.
How much more does the Toyota Fortuner TRD cost than the standard model?
At Rs 34.98 lakh for the 4x2 diesel-automatic and Rs 36.88 lakh for the 4x4 diesel-automatic, the Toyota Fortuner TRD costs a hefty Rs 2.30 lakh more than the standard Fortuner variants it’s based on. It will only be available for around three months, with Toyota gearing up to bring in the Fortuner facelift early next year.
