A particularly significant safety upgrade was made for the 2022 model year (2.8 models only). To further bolster active safety, a lane keeping system with land departure alert (LDA), blind spot monitor (BSM), rear cross traffic alert (RCTA), adaptive cruise control and a brake-synchronised pre-crash system were added as part of the Toyota Safety Sense suite of driver assistance technologies. Additionally, at that time all Fortuner models received an enhanced smart entry system with additional security measures. Of course, this is over and above an already comprehensive list of safety kit with standard items like a full set of airbags including driver knee and curtain bags as well as must-have equipment such as ABS with EBD (electronic brakeforce distribution), vehicle stability control and traction control (electronic active trac- tion control in the case of VX models which automatically detects wheel spin and distrib- utes torque between front and rear wheels to suppress unnecessary wheel spin and control skidding). Other Fortuner-specific items on the standard menu include hill assist control and trailer sway control – the latter automatically detects excessive movement of the trailer and uses brakes and engine power to help reduce sway. All 4x4 grades offer a low-range transfer case for enhanced off-road ability (2.8 4x4 variants chip in with downhill assist control as well), while all Fortuner grades incorporate a rear differential lock as standard. Engine line-up and transmissions As before, Fortuner is offered with the choice of two engines headlined by the strong and durable 2.8-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder en- gine, developing a meaty 150kW of power and 500Nm of torque – it’s mated exclusively with the six-speed automatic transmission. The 2.4 GD-6 produces a healthy 110kW and 400Nm and is available in both six-speed manual and six- speed auto transmission configurations. The fuel index ranges from 6.8 to 7.9ℓ/100km dependent on variant and transmission type selected.
