Toyota Fortuner updated for South Africa – New pricing and features

Toyota has updated its popular Fortuner series, giving the SUV a new look, features, and pricing.

The revised prices for the popular seven-seater are as follows:

  • Toyota Fortuner 2.4 GD6 RB MT – R653,500
  • Toyota Fortuner 2.4 GD6 RB AT – R677,500
  • Toyota Fortuner 2.4 GD6 4×4 AT – R709,800
  • Toyota Fortuner 2.8 GD6 RB AT – R794,600
  • Toyota Fortuner 2.8 GD6 RB VX AT – R837,800
  • Toyota Fortuner 2.8 GD6 4×4 AT – R873,500
  • Toyota Fortuner 2.8 GD6 4×4 VX AT – R897,000

Each purchase includes a 3-year/100,000km warranty and a 9-year/90,000km service plan.


Toyota has given the car a substantial makeover that includes a sleeker front profile with redesigned automatic LED headlamps, daytime running lights, and a fresh grille design.

The whole range has also been fitted with 18-inch alloy wheels, side steps, roof rails, and chrome door handles, while the higher trim levels gain access to sequential LED indicators and an electric boot door.

Inside, the Fortuner now comes with a partial leather upholstery with a black and red finish, cruise control, manual air conditioning, a reverse camera, keyless start and entry, hill assist, front and rear park distance control, a multi-information driver display, and an 8-inch entertainment screen with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and six speakers.

On top of this, the 2.8-litre units receive a leather and wood steering wheel, automatic dual-zone climate control, and electronically-adjustable front seats.

The range-topping VX models then add to this with lane-keep assist, blind-spot monitors, a panoramic camera system, adaptive cruise control, and an 11-speaker JBL sound system.


The powertrain line-up remains the same as before, meaning customers have a choice of two different engines.

The first is a 2.4-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged diesel with a rated output of 110kW and 400Nm, which will do between 6.8 and 7.6l/100km on an average fuel cycle, depending on the transmission and drive layout (4×2 or 4×4).

The other option is a 2.8-litre turbo-diesel, which boasts a higher power ceiling of 150kW and 500Nm, with fuel consumption pegged at 7.6 to 7.9l/100km.

The entry-level Fortuner is the only one to feature a six-speed manual gearbox, as all the other versions are paired with six-speed automatics with the 2.8-litre units additionally gaining access to a set of paddle shifters.

Buyers can also choose to have the SUV in rear-wheel-drive only or with a part-time four-wheel-drive setup, and all models come with a limited-slip differential and selectable Eco and Sport driving modes, with maximum towing capacity rated at 2,500kg.
