According to the information our team has got, the market of three-row crossovers is about to get another serious redesign coming from the popular Japanese carmaker. Although the well-known Toyota Fortuner has been recently updated, it seems that it has already been on its way to beat the competition with some new improvements as a 2019 Toyota Fortuner Facelift model.
- more legroom and better overall comfort than in competitors
- lack of advanced safety systems when compared to its rivals
When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Toyota Fortuner, this mid-size three-row crossover will definitely show some minor but significant refreshments in terms of body design. It will keep riding on the same platform shared with the HiLux model, which means that you can expect some great performance, especially the off-road. When you choose the Fortuner, it means that each of your family trips will be a real adventure. This SUV won’t change its dimensions and the recognizable off-road rugged look, but it might get some sleeker and more elegant features as well. Also, it is expected that the carmaker will use lightweight materials such as aluminum and that the Fortuner will show some weight loss that will only improve its overall performance. Suspension system should also be enhanced. The crossover will be available in three trim levels – GX, GXL and the best-equipped Crusade.
The interior of the 2019 Toyota Fortuner will reveal a modern and well-equipped cabin with lots of space for you and your passengers. The cabin will provide three rows of comfortable and power-adjustable seats that will be heated and covered in leather in higher trims. Even the second and the third row will provide plenty of legroom. The Fortuner is definitely known as one of the most comfortable in its class. The other updates can be expected in terms of technology so the driver will find a 7.0-inch touch-screen display with the latest infotainment and entertainment system. It will include features such as satellite navigation, a six-speaker audio system, USB port, Bluetooth connectivity, but you probably shouldn’t hope for Apple Car Play and Android Auto. Also, it has been said that there could be a better choice of the advanced safety systems in this crossover, but you will certainly find hill-start assist, traction control, cruise control, rear parking sensors and a rearview camera.
Among all of the possible engine choices that could be found under the hood of 2019 Toyota Fortuner, the fans have probably been waiting for a 2.8-liter four-cylinder turbo-diesel the most. We are waiting for more information at the moment, but we can say that this crossover will get an all-wheel drive system and offer a choice of a six-speed manual and automatic transmission.
2019 Toyota Fortuner Facelift Release Date and Price
The release date hasn’t been confirmed yet, but the 2019 Toyota Fortuner should probably be expected in the market by the end of this year. The price of a base model should start around $47,990.
