The Toyota Fortuner lets Filipinos go further

Toyota Fortuner

Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP), the country’s top automotive company, is a firm believer in the value of kaizen, a Japanese term that means constant improvement.

No one doubts the nameplate’s dominance in the segment. In fact, the Toyota Fortuner has never missed the list of the country’s top-selling seven-seater SUVs every year. It has been hailed as the best-selling SUV in the Philippines, having sold more than 230,000 units since 2005.

The Toyota Fortuner makes for a perfect match for brave business owners and visionary young professionals paving their way to a better future, like the architect Wilbye Manlutac.


“My family first owned a 2007 model of the Fortuner before switching to the 2018 model. The older model’s reliability and efficiency served as our main reason for getting the newer version. Having experienced two models of the Fortuner, I can say that Toyota does an amazing job designing cars that deliver on both function and form. Luxury and comfort are definitely something that the Fortuner offers at the perfect balance,” explains Manlutac.

The young architect attests to the reliability and trustworthiness of his SUV. Like Manlutac, many Filipinos appreciate the Toyota Fortuner’s power and dependability.

Under its hood is a four-cylinder, 16-valve DOHC variable nozzle turbo with an air-cooled intercooler engine. Apart from the highly capable power plant, the Toyota Fortuner packs a slew of safety features like Toyota Safety Sense, which equips the Fortuner with a pre-collision system, lane departure alert, and adaptive cruise control. Other safety additions available for select variants of the Fortuner are the panoramic view monitor (PVM), blind-spot monitor (BSM), and rear cross-traffic alert (RCTA).

The Toyota Fortuner also offers features that can make it an ideal ride to your favorite travel destination.

“My fondest memories with Lisha (his Fortuner’s name) are the long drives I’ve taken with it. Driving Lisha to exciting places like La Union and Pangasinan with my friends is always an adventure,” says Crysler David, a Toyota Fortuner owner since 2019.


Features like a spacious trunk, a stable and adventurous stance, and a powerful engine, make the Toyota Fortuner a worthy companion, whether on new ventures or on daily journeys.

Select variants of the vehicle also introduce new functional power features such as the Kick Sensor, which enables the boot to open automatically with a simple foot movement to make loading equipment and baggage easier. These features make the Fortuner the vehicle of choice for those who love to enjoy life’s most thrilling moments.

To keep driver and passengers comfortable and engaged during long trips, Toyota equipped the Fortuner with leather seats, an interior illumination system, and a nine-speaker JBL sound system paired with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility feature.

With all these and more, the Fortuner proves to be a staunch companion — whether when leading in life’s literal and figurative high roads or when leading every new adventure. So, for those who deserve the power, performance, and perks of being a leader, the Fortuner proves to be the best automotive partner.
