The 2021 Toyota Fortuner is already available in Thailand with a top-spec variant dubbed as Legender. Now, the 2021 Fortuner Legender decided to have some fun and prove that it’s a vehicle meant to drive through any terrain.
In case you’re wondering, the new Fortuners you see in the phots are the top-spec 2.8-liter Legender 4WD that comes in either a White Pearl CS or an Emotional Red paint finish. This Toyota Fortuner Legender uses a 2.8-liter 4-cylinder diesel engine making 201 hp and 500 Nm of torque.

With the help of its 4WD drivetrain and 6-speed automatic transmission, the Toyota Fortuner Legender can brave through the toughest off-road terrain with ease.
Further enhancing the off-road capabilities of the Fortuner Legender are its double-wishbone front suspension, 4-link rear suspension, 193 mm ground clearance, and 20-inch alloy wheels exclusive to the Legender variant.

The Toyota Fortuner Legender is installed with dual LED projector headlamps with a follow-me-home system and automatic light adjustable system upfront, as well as redesigned LED rear lights at the back.
Moreover, this new Toyota Fortuner comes with a dual-tone paint scheme that provides a more modern and sportier appeal.

Many are quick to point out that the front fascia design of the new Fortuner imposes similarities with the Geely Coolray. Contributing to this apparent idea is their similar headlights shape and L-shaped daytime running lights (DRL).
As for safety, the Toyota Fortuner Legender is installed with the Toyota Safety Sense that provides features such as a panoramic view monitor with a 3D view, anti-lock braking system with electronic brakeforce distribution, hill-start assist control, downhill assist control, among others.

Just by looking at the Thai-spec 2021 Fortuner, we can’t help but wonder when Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) will bring this model. For now, TMP is bringing the Corolla Cross next week. So, we just have to wait a little more for the arrival of the new Fortuner in our market.

The Toyota Fortuner is one of the best selling midsize SUV in the Philippines. This midsize SUV has been driven on the country’s highways since the early 2000s. It became a household name because of its rugged platform, strong brand support, and tested durability. The second-generation Toyota Fortuner has topped the sales chart consistently, not only in the midsize SUV segment but also for the entire automotive industry in the country. The Toyota Fortuner shares the same IMV platform with the Innova and Hilux. Aside from the platform, the three models also share the same engine options but with different outputs. The current version of the Japanese SUV is sleeker compared to the model it replaces – making it a popular choice for car buyers. The cabin of the Toyota Fortuner can accommodate seven people.
