2019 Toyota Fortuner - (interior, exterior, and drive) / ALL-NEW Toyota Fortuner 2019
The ability to head bush for some off-road adventure continues to underwrite many local SUV sales, which prompted us to give Ford a call regarding an Everest long-termer. As the winner of last year’s Large 4WD SUV Comparison we were keen to see just how easy (or not) the seven-seat off-roader was to live with… though not before we’d had a little off-road adventure of our own. Our two-day trek took us to the spectacular Victorian High Country, in particular the iconic Billy Goat Bluff and Blue Rag Range tracks. Here, the Everest’s low-range gearing, excellent ground clearance (225mm) and articulation would be put to the test – as it turned out, so too did its air-conditioning system and dust sealing. The cruise from Carsales HQ to Dargo was uneventful and, as expected after previous road tests, extremely efficient. Ford’s 3.2-litre five-cylinder turbo-diesel engine and six-speed automatic transmission proved to be an effortless combination on the highway, returning excellent cruising fuel consumption (8.4L/100km) with a load in the back, and there was plenty in reserve for overtaking. While not as polished as the Prado we also had along for the trip, the Everest’s six-speed automatic still made the right decisions and had a great spread of ratios for on-road driving. However, Ford should consider shorter low range gearing to assist serious off-road work. In most situations the Everest’s gearing deficiencies go unnoticed – going uphill all that low-end torque makes up for any shortcomings in the ratio department – but when crawling down steep grades, we felt the low-range could be a little, well, lower. Of course not everyone will test the Everest in such extremities, and when you consider this is a production vehicle made to perform myriad other tasks, it’s really a pretty small niggle. The Prado did, however, perform better on this front (check out our comparison here for more details). The Everest excelled where clearance was concerned. Looking at the gap between the tyres and the wheel arches it’s obvious there’s plenty of space for clearing rocks and the likes. Despite the gnarly terrain on our route, the Everest didn’t once bottom-out. Even the handy side steps managed to clear everything we threw at them – a good thing considering how important these are for access in and out of the vehicle. A lot of thought has clearly been placed into the Everest’s use as the family truckster. The interior is flexible, with plenty of space in the first and second rows, and a plethora of cargo space (450/1050/2010 litres) – even with four adults on board However the third row might best be left for the littlies, and access does require a level of dexterity for taller teens. It’s here the B-pillar grab handle really comes in handy. The Everest is one of only a handful of vehicles in its class capable of towing 3000kg (braked); but more on this in an update soon. We loved the Everest’s light, electrically-assisted steering – especially its ability to absorb road shock on rugged trails. There’s a level of accuracy and feedback in the Everest’s steering which many rivals lack, and on tight, winding tracks it really is a pleasure to use. Dust sealing worked pretty well and the air-con kept its cool in spite of the heat. Personally, I’d prefer dials to operate the temperature rather than hard-to-locate-when-bouncing-around buttons, but for the most part the climate control is a case of ‘set and forget’. If I had one final criticism of the Everest off-road it’s that an 80-litre tank really doesn’t get you far. A couple of hours in low range in steep terrain – and with grown-ups and their gear on board – saw fuel consumption jump closer to 13.0L/00km, giving an effective range of just over 600km. It’s fine in most scenarios, but we reckon you’d struggle on extended outback trips, especially with say the camper van in tow. Over the coming months we’ll test the Everest across the full scope of its design brief. Trips off-road, weekends away, the school run, towing the ‘van… basically anything we can think of to throw at it. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Thank for watching Please Subcribe : https://goo.gl/WhEg37 G+ : https://goo.gl/UZAfH3 https://www.instagram.com/dani_balasio/ Tumblr: https://goo.gl/AU77Iz https://twitter.com/Sports_car_new web : http://sportscarsnew.weebly.com/

Toyota Australia's executive director sales and marketing said Fortuner's enhanced equipment levels would meet the expectations of people seeking a rugged off-roader with the comfort and style of an SUV. "Fortuner's updates are based on specific feedback from our dealers and our guests, reflecting Toyota's commitment to continuous improvement," Mr Cramb said. "The added features further boost the appeal of Fortuner, which is recognised for offering the space, comfort, convenience and quality of an SUV while delighting owners with its prodigious off-road ability," he said. Fortuner has a strong Australian DNA with its unique body, wiring and key underpinnings having been designed or extensively developed and evaluated by Toyota's local engineers. The rugged frame, high-torque engine, all-coil suspension and strong upper body have been proven in Australia under the world's toughest conditions - on tarmac and off the beaten track. In addition to its prodigious off-road ability, Fortuner delivers the compliant ride, interior space, convenient features and premium quality expected in a modern SUV. Fortuner is the turbo-diesel alternative to the similar-size petrol-only Kluger and offers an affordable choice for those who aspire to own a LandCruiser. It is powered by a high-torque 2.8-litre four-cylinder common-rail direct-injection turbo-diesel engine with a choice of six-speed manual or automatic transmissions. Maximum power is 130kW and peak torque is 450Nm for the automatic and 420Nm for the manual. Braked towing capacity^ is 3,000kg for manual and 2,800kg^ for auto variants.

Fortuner's seven seats are arranged in a 2-3-2 configuration. The 60/40 split-fold second-row seat has a one-touch slide and tumble feature while the 50/50 third-row seats are stowable. Cargo capacity ranges from 200 litres to 1,080 litres when packed to the top of the seat backs. Standard equipment also includes durable fabric seat-coverings, projector-style headlamps, LED tail-lamps, an air-conditioned cool box, Bluetooth®‡ connectivity, six speakers, three 12V accessory sockets, audio and phone controls mounted on the steering wheel, eco and power drive modes and a multi-information display (MID) in the instrument cluster.

Toyota Fortuner vs Ford Endeavour comparison review in Hindi - Ever since the entry of the new-generation Ford Endeavour in early 2016, the competition in the premium SUV segment got fierce. Thanks to some really class-leading features and all- new design that the 2016 Ford Endeavour came up with, the dominance of the Toyota Fortuner was finally challenged.
