The Toyota Fortuner, also known as the Toyota SW4, is a mid-size SUV manufactured by Japanese automobile manufacturer Toyota. The Fortuner is built on the Hilux pickup truck platform. It features two/three rows of seats and is available in rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive configuration. It is a part of Toyota's IMV project for emerging markets, which also includes the Hilux and the Innova. The name "Fortuner" is derived from the English word "fortune".[1]


While the first generation Fortuner was developed in Thailand by Thai and Japanese engineers, the facelifted version of the Fortuner, as well as the Hilux and Innova, was designed in Australia by Toyota Australia, which is also responsible for developing the second generation Fortuner.[2]

For the medium pick-up based SUV segment, Toyota offers the Hilux Surf (Japan), 4Runner (North America) and Land Cruiser Prado (Europe and Australasia). However, in some Central and South American countries and New Zealand, Toyota offers the Fortuner alongside the 4Runner and Land Cruiser Prado, like in Peru, Panama, Ecuador, Colombia, and Guatemala.

Specialized variants with a naturally aspirated 5L-E engined is offered to governments, organisations and the UN alongside other utility vehicles such as the Prado, Hilux, HiAce, and the 70 and 200 series Land Cruisers.[3][4]

Initially, the Fortuner was sold with 4 different types of 2 petrol engines and 2 diesel engines. All variants were offered in RWD or 4WD configuration, with 5-speed manual transmission and a 4 or 5-speed automatic transmission. In August 2012, the 2.5-litre common-rail turbodiesel 2KD-FTV engine was upgraded to a variable nozzle turbocharger (VNT) which was already equipped in the 3.0-litre common-rail turbo diesel 1KD-FTV since its introduction in 2005 to increase power and torque about 60%, also reducing fuel consumption up to 30%. With this VNT equipment, the Fortuner could now accelerate from 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) in about 11 seconds (less than 10 seconds for 3.0-litre engine).[5] It was launched to commemorate Pertamina's successful expedition from Jakarta, Indonesia to Rome, Italy (a distance of roughly 20,000 kilometres) using a group of Fortuners.[6]


A number of engine options are available depending on the country of sale, including a 2.7-litre 2TR-FE and 4.0-litre 1GR-FE V6 petrol with Variable Valve Timing and 2.5-litre 2KD-FTV and 3.0-litre 1KD-FTV common rail variable geometry turbocharger diesel models.

Trim levels are G and G Luxury for rear-wheel drive diesel and petrol, and V for 4×4 Diesel and petrol. The common rail turbo intercooled diesel has functional scoop on its hood.

In 2007, Toyota Thailand dropped the 4×4 petrol model and replaced it with a two-wheel drive petrol version.

Like in Argentina, it is known as the SW4 in Brazil. In this market, there are two trims available. Diesel 3.0-litre 16-valve turbo with automatic 5-speed transmission and Flex (petrol) 2.7-litre 16-valve VVT-I with 4×2 traction, 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic.

The Prado continued in production until 2009. A new trim was added in 2010, the Fortuner Urbana, with a petrol 2.7 L engine in 4×4 and 4×2 models.

The Fortuner is available in the following trim levels:

The Fortuner was introduced on 8 July 2005 at the 13th Gaikindo Auto Expo in Jakarta. Initially, the Fortuner was imported from Thailand and sold in 2.7 G (2WD) and 2.7 V (4WD) trim levels. The rear wheel drive 2.7 G was offered in the base trim with fabric interior and the Luxury with leather interior and premium sound system. The 3.0-litre diesel engine option is not sold in Indonesia, due to the heavier tax regulations imposed on vehicles with diesel engines larger than 2.5-litre.

The 2.5 G trim was later added to the market in 2007, powered by a 2.5-litre diesel engine rated at 75 kW (102 PS; 101 hp). It is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. Since then, the Fortuner is assembled locally at the Karawang plant to fulfill the local market and exports to the Middle East (GCC) market.

In mid-2009, a newer variant was added to the lineup, which is the 2.5 G with a 4-speed automatic transmission. The 2.5 G trim can be ordered with "TRD Sportivo" body kits, which is also available as dealer installed options for other models. In August 2012, the 2.5-litre common-rail turbodiesel 2KD-FTV engine was upgraded with a variable nozzle turbocharger (VNT), rating the engine power output to 106 kW (144 PS; 142 hp).[18] The 2.5 G 4WD trim with automatic transmission was released in August 2014.[19][20][21]


In June 2014, Toyota announced that complete knock-down (CKD) production of the Fortuner at a production facility of Saryarka AvtoProm LLP (SAP). Plans call for a production of approximately 3,000 units annually and the hiring of an additional 100 employees in SAP.[22]

The facelifted Fortuner was launched in the Philippines on 17 October 2020. It is offered in 2.4 G, 2.4 V, 2.8 Q and 2.8 LTD trim levels with the 2.7 G petrol variant being discontinued. The 2.8-litre version has Toyota Safety Sense that consists of Pre-Collision system, Lane Departure Alert and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control.[64][65]

In September 2021, the Fortuner received dual-zone automatic air-conditioning, blind-spot monitor and rear-cross traffic alert as standard for the Q and LTD trims while gaining hood lift assist, power tailgate with kick sensor, and rear USB C-type ports for the LTD model.[66][67]


The Fortuner went on sale in Russia in October 2017. The Fortuner sold in Russia is only available in 4×4 with 2.8-litre turbo-diesel and 2.7-litre petrol engines, with either five-speed manual or six-speed automatic gearbox. Four trim choices are offered: Standard, Comfort, Elegance and Prestige. Fortuners sold in the Russian market are imported from Thailand.[68]


The Fortuner gained a new body kit by Modellista, giving buyers an option to spruce up their off-roader.[69] The GR Sport variant also became available, which came with the obligatory badging, red and black highlights.[70] The Fortuner Legender was also launched in Thailand, which brings about an updated kit count. Highlights include dual-zone air-conditioning, blind-spot monitoring and rear-cross traffic alert.[71]


The facelifted Fortuner debuted on 4 June 2020 for the Thai market alongside the facelifted Hilux.[72] The Legender flagship sub-model (known as VRZ in Malaysia and LTD in the Philippines) was introduced to replace the Thai market TRD Sportivo model. The Legender grade is equipped with a different headlight units from the standard grades and different front and rear bumper designs which designed to be in-line with Toyota crossover SUVs. It is also equipped with 20-inch wheels, interior ambient lighting, two-tone leather seats, JBL sound system, and a set of Toyota Safety Sense active safety systems.[73] The 2.8-litre 1GD-FTV diesel engine received an upgrade, producing 204 PS (201 hp; 150 kW) and 500 N⋅m (51 kg⋅m; 370 lb⋅ft) of torque.[74]

The Legender-based GR Sport variant with different styling from the Indonesian-market GR Sport was launched in Thailand on 26 August 2021 and in the Philippines on 23 October 2021. It is only available in 2.8-litre diesel engine option with 4WD.[75][76][77]
