Toyota has added an "entry-level" automatic to its popular Fortuner line-up.
The new 2.5 D-4D Auto slots in just above the 2.5 D-4D manual, which is the most affordable entry point for Fortuner ownership.
At the heart of the Fortuner 2.5 D-4D VNT Auto lies a powerplant that is able to deliver maximum performance from a frugal four-cylinder engine. Maximum power is rated at 106kW and torque on par with the 3.0 D-4D, a substantial 343Nm.
The four-speed auto is the same one used in the other diesel in the range. Maximum torque is available from a 1600rpm and peak power is reached at 3400rpm.
