There have been a lot of speculations about the new generation of Toyota Fortuner in recent months. While the Japanese car manufacturer has not made an official announcement, it is expected that the third-generation Fortuner will be launched globally next year.
A few weeks ago, a leaked image of the alleged 2024 Toyota Fortuner appeared on the internet. The authenticity of the image has not been verified, but you can get a preview of the design of the next-generation Fortuner through this latest unofficial rendering. We can see that the front of the new Fortuner will receive notable changes with new design elements that make the car more sporty compared to the current version.
The prominent front part of the car features a grille with 3 horizontal bars that include the Toyota emblem in the middle, a thick hexagonal metal grille surround, sharper headlights with integrated LED daytime running lights, a muscular bonnet, new fog lights, prominent wheel arches, and newly designed alloy wheels.
In addition, we can also see body-colored door handles, black-painted pillars, chrome window trim, a near-flat roofline with sturdy roof rails, new taillights, thick step boards, and an integrated roof spoiler. Some sources suggest that the upcoming Fortuner will have larger dimensions than the current version as the car may be developed on the TNGA-F ladder frame chassis. We also hope that the SUV will have a sunroof, along with many other premium features such as ADAS.
It is expected that the 2024 Toyota Fortuner will share design cues with the recently debuted next-generation Toyota Tacoma pickup truck. If that’s true, the new Fortuner will have an even sportier look than the rendered design in this article.
The interior of the car is said to receive a makeover with a larger touchscreen display, a new digital instrument cluster, and a redesigned center control cluster.
Under the hood, the 2024 Fortuner will be transitioned to an electrified powertrain. This powertrain will be a combination of a 2.8L 4-cylinder turbo-diesel engine with hybrid technology. Details related to the performance are yet to be revealed. Toyota estimates that the addition of mild-hybrid technology will improve fuel efficiency by about 10% compared to the non-hybrid variant. Based on the strict emission standards being implemented globally, an electrified powertrain is a necessary step for the Fortuner.
