Toyota Fortuner is known for its powerful road presence, great build quality and superior off-roading capabilities. Moreover, the Fortuner oozes a sense of authority when on the road. All these elements come together to make this a great choice for enthusiasts and important people alike. The Toyota Fortuner already looks rugged, however, some people take it to the next level. One enthusiast, who goes by the Instagram handle of ‘hany.basheer’ has modified his Toyota Fortuner to look more rugged yet more capable at the same time.
What all modifications have been carried out?
The already-capable Fortuner has been converted into a much powerful and capable off-roading machine. First of all, the car gets a 2-inch suspension lift kit. This serves two purposes; first, it enhances the road presence and second, it increases the ground clearance of the car enabling it to better tread through the water. For further enhancing the off-roading capabilities, an off-road snorkel has been installed on the car. The car now sits on 16-inch blacked-out steel rims that have been coupled to Maxxis Bravo AT Rubber tyres. The car has also been fitted with Runva Winch, which will surely come in handy when going off-roading in a group. Other than these, the car includes custom bumpers, custom widebody fenders, a roof carrier and a cycle rack. The owner has used the carrier for the spare tyre which is giving the car a unique touch. Coming to the extra special bit, the car receives a Nardo Grey paint job, a colour that is reserved by Audi for its RS models. With the current setup, the Fortuner looks ready for some serious off-roading.
What powered the first-gen Toyota Fortuner?
The first generation Toyota Fortuner, which was launched in 2009, came powered by a 3.0-litre diesel engine. It was the only available option back then. The 3.0-litre unit made 171bhp and 343Nm of torque. This unit came mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox and was available as a 4X4 only. This car, with this setup, returned an ARAI mileage of 10.8kmpl.
