2021 Toyota Fortuner Likely to Get January Launch in Nepal
The all-new Toyota Fortuner is anticipated to get a January launch in Nepal with both cosmetic and mechanical updates showcased on the Thailand-spec model a few months ago. However, United Traders Syndicate Pvt. Ltd. (UTS), the sole distributor of Toyota vehicles and its genuine parts in Nepal has not issued any official notice yet but we assume that the facelifted model will enter Nepal sometime in the very month.
We have gathered some crucial information about the SUV that you should know ahead of its launch
The most essential update on the facelifted Fortuner is the exterior styling. The design factor holds cosmetic tweaks on the front fascia with a larger mesh-pattern grille, redesigned LED headlights that incorporate LED DRLs, a redesigned front bumper, and a new set of 18-inch alloy wheels. The rear and side profile does not carry any changes except the slimmer-looking LED tail lamps.
Now, as you slide towards the cabin you will pretty much encounter the same interior styling and layout as the regular model. But, there is an update on the massive 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system that will now come with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. So, what the international model gets is a mildly updated instrument cluster, 8-way power-adjustable driver and co-driver seats, wireless smartphone charging, LED ambient lighting, a 9-speaker JBL audio system, and a 360-degree camera. However, we do expect all these features to be made available in the models that will be offered in Nepal.
What’s under the hood?
The 2021 Toyota Fortuner is likely to get the same engine options as the outgoing model; a 2.7-liter petrol engine that produces 166PS/245Nm and a 2.8-liter diesel engine that generates 204PS and 500Nm. Transmission duties are handled by the choice of a manual and a 6-speed automatic transmission.
The facelifted Fortuner will be made available in two distinct trim levels – Standard and Legender
