Find the difference between the old and new Toyota Fortuner


Just because the Fortuner is the best-selling vehicle in the country doesn't mean Toyota will just rely on the SUV's badge to bring in the sales. 

In 2020, Toyota refreshed the second-generation Fortuner, which has been around since 2016. Across the Fortuner's six variants in G, V, Q, and LTD guises, the seven-seater SUV has received mechanical and tech updates. 

The updated Fortuner goes from at P1.633 million for the base G 4x2 MT to P2.414 million for the LTD 4x4 AT.  Meanwhile, the pre-updated model barely lost any value, as it goes from P1 million to P1.5 million in the used market. 


At launch, the Fortuner's 2.8-liter turbodiesel engine made 174hp and 450Nm of torque. With the new Fortuner, those numbers climb to 201hp and 500 Nm, an increase of 26hp and 50Nm.


As for the base 2.4-liter diesel, its output is still the same at 147hp and 400Nm of torque. The changes in this engine, Toyota said, is its efficiency and economy.  

As always, the rest of the Fortuner range is rear-wheel driven, aside from the top-spec LTD which has four-wheel drive. 


Perhaps the most obvious change: The new Fortuner now sports an edgier headlight design, a more prominent grille and fog light housing.

The tail light's LED design has been changed as well, now taking shape like the letter C found in the Camry midsize sedan. 

As for the Fortuner LTD, it sports a different face, paint, and wheel design. The its front end looks Lexus-esque, with its trapezoidal headlights that flow into the grille, while a triangular air dam below almost meets the grille to faintly recreate the Lexus "Spindle Grille." 


The LTD variety is immediately recognizable with its black roof, which contrasts the white paint. It also sports 18-inch diamond-cut wheels with a split-spoke design. 

Comfort and safety tech

Smart Entry and Push Start System make an appearance in the Fortuner LTD, Q, and V variants, as well as an eight-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A nine-speaker JBL audio system thumps in the LTD variant.

Toyota has also fitted the Fortuner with variable flow control (VFC). VFC is said to lighten the steering at low speeds, and only becomes heavier at higher speeds.


Toyota's Safety Sense (TSS) also makes an appearance in the Fortuner LTD and Q. TSS includes Pre-Collision System, Lane Departure Alert, and Adaptive Cruise Control.

In addition, the Panoramic View Monitor option comes with the LTD, Q, and V variants. G variants get a reversing camera.
