Now the LTD is the new top-of-the-line variant for the Toyota Fortuner. It is based on the Fortuner Legender, and it bears a lot of features that set it apart from the other trims.


Starting on its front fascia, the Fortuner LTD is equipped with a pair of unique-looking split-type LED headlamps. It’s LED front signal lamps and LED rear combination lamps are also different due to their sequential designs. In comparison, the other variants come with more conventional-looking bi-beam LED headlamps, and their rear lamps and signal lamps lack the sequential feature as well.

Apart from the unique lights, the entire front-fascia of the Toyota Fortuner LTD bears a more angular look. The lower grille is wider, and the trim framing the headlights are black colored instead of chrome colored. The LTD trim’s grille itself is also a mesh-type design.

The LTD is also the only variant to come with a two-tone paint scheme. And finally, it rides on a set of 18-inch machine-cut two-tone alloy wheels.

Under the hood, the LTD variants share the same engine as the Q variant. It’s a 2.8-liter inline-4 turbodiesel and it’s capable of making up to 201 horsepower and 500 Nm of torque.

While the LTD shares the same engine as the Fortuner Q, the 4x4 LTD is the only variant to come with an auto-disconnect differential and a differential lock – two important features if you’re looking to go off-roading. A 4x2 drivetrain option is also available for the Fortuner LTD trim.
