2017 Toyota Fortuner Philippines Review: Fresh feeling & eye-catching look

The new Toyota Fortuner in tough terrain

The quiet ride and smooth power delivery are the top concerns of most buyers

Engines are smaller but more effective. The new Toyota Fortuner provides two engine choices: a 2.8-litre diesel engine and a 2.7-litre petrol engine. Both pair with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

To maximize torque capability, what the driver needs is to dab the throttle and 1,600rpm for the 2.7-tonne vehicle to gather momentum. Drivers never have to worry about the lack of power when running at all, but they need to perform six ratios to reach top-gear.

The center-sole has the “iMT” button which does a little blip and rev-match on the downshift.

Both Eco and Power buttons decides how the throttle would perform, limited or full power. Fuel efficiency will obviously be more effective if using the Eco button.

Hill assist function works great on a long straight uphill section. In more difficult conditions, to deal with rough elements, the new Toyota Fortuner offers an electronic toggle knob that allows selection of four-wheel-drive high and low ratios.

The automatic transmission engine probably has a more gentle motion than the manual transmission even when going downhill.

The new Toyota Fortuner provides paddle shifts which are rarely used while driving because the box is good enough for the journey.

The quiet ride and smooth power delivery are the top concerns of most buyers. The older Fortuner made strong and regular vibrations when driving. However, the new Fortuner profits from a stiffer ladder-on-frame chassis which combines stronger cross-members and suspension mounts for better torsional rigidity.

Braking and acceleration become easier since pitch is better controlled. However, the new Toyota Fortuner generally lacks ease and comfort of movement.

Many said that over 100km plus that they covered one-way, the car began to cause shaking and vibrations and lacked under-thigh support.
