Do you think this color option will sell here in the Philippines?

Limited edition cars are an instant treat for us car fans. It does not only give exclusive and time-limited features, but also represents a specific point of time in our life which can be very sentimental.

So just take a look at this Limited Edition Toyota Fortuner Emerald Green SUV (more of an army green) introduced at a dealership in Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. It provides a different feel from what we are used to seeing in the well-known Toyota Fortuner.

Featured on Oto.com.vn - a leading website to buy and sell cars in Vietnam, the Limited Edition Fortuner is outfitted with two red seals across the body and decals that say “Limited Edition” on the doorstep and “Fortuner” on the end of the rear passenger door. Toyota Vietnam offers five paint color options for the Fortuner, including black, brown, copper, pearl white, and silver – with the Army Green being a limited option.

The Limited Edition Fortuner only offers an exclusive paint finish. Other than that, there are no changes or modifications. It still runs on a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine capable of producing 148 hp at 3,400 rpm and 400 Nm of torque at 1,600 to 2,000 rpm. It is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission and has a rear-wheel-drive system.

The Toyota Fortuner is the most popular 7-seater SUV in Vietnam which would help it sell its Limited Edition in no time. It is said to have a fairly reasonable price of around 1.1 billion Vietnamese Dong (Php 2,382,190). For more updated pricing information, please refer to the Cars For Sale section on Oto.com.vn.

There are currently seven color options for the Toyota Fortuner here in the Philippines. It would be a great initiative to bring in the Army Green color for the local market as they can really be unique and distinctive.

Toyota Fortuner

The Toyota Fortuner is one of the best-selling midsize SUVs 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. And in 2020, Toyota Motor Philippines launched the new Fortuner facelifted which showcases a more aggressive SUV appeal. It still shares the same Innovative International Multi-purpose Vehicle (IMV) platform as the Hilux and Innova. The new model is offering a wide array of variants to market to various car consumers. These variants include the base G, V, Q, and top-of-the-line LTD variant which comes with a more distinct styling. The sky's the limit for Toyota's entry to the local midsize SUV segment as it remains to be a top choice among Filipino car buyers when considering a reliable, rugged, and family 7-seater vehicle. As for pricing, the G variant with a 4x2 drivetrain and manual transmission starts at Php 1,633,000 and goes up to the new LTD variant with a 4x4 drivetrain and automatic transmission (excluding the White Pearl body paint option).
