Engine and Performance:Talking about the engine which is the biggest strength of the car is a D-4D 3.0 LTR format. It produces a 169PS of power and 343Nm of torque. The new 2012 Fortuner is available in three variants with the same engine but two transmission options and both 4×2 and 4×4. Minimum torque it produces is 1400rpm and this is the reason why it picks up speeds in higher gears at lower speeds easily and effortlessly. The 4×4 variant has both ‘H’ (high) and ‘L’ (low) modes and until unless you are a bad driver, it is hard not to take the Fortuner out of the messiest of roads and patches.
Mileage:With so much of power and weight, the economy figure of 9 kmpl in traffic is justified.
