Toyota-Indus set to roll out Fortuner diesel
KARACHI - Toyota Indus Motors is all set to launch Toyota Fortuner with a diesel engine as currently, the Fortuner which is being sold across Pakistan comes with 2TR – FE Petrol Engine.

Fortuner may come with 1KD-FTV 3.0L engine capacity (Like Hilux Revo) with compression ratio of 17.9, 172@3400 rpm horsepower and 352N@1400 torque but it is not yet confirmed that with what engine capacity the Diesel Fortuner will be rolled out in next few weeks.

Moving onward, the company is launching a diesel Fortuner due to growth in the local automobile industry, which has led to an exponential demand, and the requirement for a locally manufactured -diesel- 4×4 has grown alongside it.

Furthermore, what points towards the need for a Diesel vehicle is the game changer China Pakistan Economic Corridor which is also underway, and commuters need resilient and durable automotives to transport their goods, in this case, undoubtedly, handy and sporty Toyota Fortuner is, both durable and resilient.
