2023 Toyota Fortuner – The new generation 2023 Toyota Fortuner will debut in Thailand in the coming year, and will feature numerous improvements. One of the most exciting things about the Fortuner is that it’ll come with a brand new 2.8-liter turbodiesel engine, which is coupled with a mild hybrid system. In light of this, the Fortuner will be based on the TNGA-F design that will take with ease the mild hybrid diesel powertrain. This means that the new SUV will be the first model to use that technology and platform in Thailand. The current version of the Fortuner is driven by a powerful 1GD-FTV 2.8-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel engine that generates more than 200 horses. If we add a mild hybrid and we could see more horses in the future.
First images of the 2023 Toyota Fortuner are available and we can say that the new model is a lot more appealing than the previous model. The first thing to note is that the size is the same, but some changes appear on the rear and front fascias. We noticed immediately the new headlights with a better graphic and grille, which is coated in black. Additionally, the massive Toyota badge is adorning the middle of the grille and the skid plate is prominent for additional security. We also saw a new taillight system along with the new, shiny wheels.
2023 Toyota Fortuner Redesign
Inside, the 2023 Toyota Fortuner will be contemporary and spacious. The new vehicle will continue with the same layout of three rows that provides a comfortable journey. Like its sister, the 4Runner and the 4Runner, the Fortuner will sport the identical 8.0-inch touchscreen information system. The interface of the Fortuner is more user-friendly and includes physical buttons, as along with rotary volume as well as tune knobs. It’s also worth noting that this model includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto as well as a subscription-based Wi-Fi hotspot. However, as with many modern vehicles the built-in navigation system, as well as 15 speakers from the JBL sound system, is offered as an option.
This is the first time, in the history of mankind, that the renowned 1GD Diesel engine family will get mild hybrid electrification. According to the information available from the sources, it appears that the 2023 Toyota Fortuner will use the 1GD-FTV 2.8-liter turbodiesel with four cylinders that can produce more than 200 horsepower. But, given that the 1GD-FTV engine makes use of a novel moderate hybrid technology, we’re anticipating greater output. Many are of the opinion that the system’s new design will have at least 250 horses, which would result in excellent fuel efficiency. Alongside Fortuner however, the report previously mentioned that other Japanese-market models such as those of the Land Cruiser, Land Cruiser Prado, Hiace Wagon, and France could also benefit from the same mild-hybrid technology.
2023 Toyota Fortuner Release Date & Price
We’re hoping for the new 2023 Toyota Fortuner to debut in Thailand in the coming year. We’ve said that the most exciting announcement is that we’ll see the introduction of a mild hybrid diesel system. For those who do not be aware, the advancement of diesel-hybrid powertrains has become the focus of speculation since the beginning of last year, which means it’s the perfect time for them to reveal the details. For pricing, it is estimated that the Toyota Fortuner could cost $43,000 and is roughly exactly the same as the 4Runner TRD Sport model currently in production.
