The Toyota Fortuner (Japanese: トヨタ フォーチュナー Toyota Fōchunā), also known as the Toyota SW4, is a mid-size SUV manufactured by Toyota. Originally assembled only in Thailand and later also in Indonesia and other countries, the Fortuner is built on the Hilux pickup truck platform. It features three rows of seats and is available in rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive configuration. The Fortuner is part of Toyota's IMV project in Thailand, which also includes the Hilux and the Kijang Innova (in Indonesia). Developed in large part by Toyota’s Thai operations, the Fortuner has piggybacked the success of the Hilux and is now built in a number of countries including Egypt, India, Indonesia, Argentina, Russia and Pakistan.
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.
This car was the best selling in its category (SUV/PPV) in Thailand and the Philippines, and is hugely popular in Pakistan and India.
The Fortuner is not offered in Japan, Europe, North America, China or South Korea. For the medium pick-up based SUV segment in those markets, Toyota offers the Hilux Surf (Japan), 4Runner (North America) and Land Cruiser Prado (Europe, Australasia and China). However, in some Central and South American countries and New Zealand, Toyota offers the Fortuner alongside the 4Runner and Land Cruiser Prado, like in Panama or Colombia.
Specialized variants with a naturally aspirated 5L-E engined is offered to governments, organisations and the UN alongside with other utility vehicles such as the Prado, Hilux, Hiace, and the 70 and 200 series Land cruisers.
The name "Fortuner" comes from the English word, Fortune.

The first generation Fortuner was unveiled at the December 2004 Thailand International Motor Expo and released in early 2005. It is positioned below the Land Cruiser and above the RAV4. Model codes included: TGN50, GGN60, TGN60, KUN60
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. Its high body model has been criticized as unstable, and not aerodynamic when running at higher speeds. In August 2012, the 2.5 L common-rail turbodiesel 2KD-FTV engine was upgraded to a variable nozzle (VNT) turbocharger which was equipped in the 3.0 L common-rail turbo diesel 1KD-FTV since its release in 2005 to increase power and torque about 60%, also reducing fuel consumption up to 30%. With this VNT equipment, now Fortuner can accelerate from 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) in about 11 seconds (less than 10 seconds for 3.0 L engine). 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.
A number of engine options are available depending on the country of sale, including a 2.7 L 2TR-FE and 4.0 L 1GR-FE V6 petrol with Variable Valve Timing and 2.5 L 2KD-FTV and 3.0 L 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.
Launched in 2005, the Fortuner in Brunei is available in 2.5L Manual G trim with and 3.0L Automatic V trim. The 2.5G is available in 2WD while the 3.0V has full-time 4WD.
The Fortuner was unveiled in Colombia in 2005 and launched in 2007 as a replacement for the locally assembled Prado that had been under production for 9 years without any changes. The Prado continued in production until 2009. A new model was added in 2010, the Fortuner Urbana, with a petrol 2.7 L engine in 4×4 and 4×2 models. In late 2011, as a 2012 model, Toyota started to sell the new facelifted version with a new front grille, new rear lights and a revised interior quality on the same versions and prices as the older version.
The Fortuner is available in the following versions:
- Fortuner Urbana 4×2, with a 2.7 L engine.
- Fortuner Urbana 4×4 with a 2.7 L engine.
- Fortuner Plus Diesel, with a 3.0 L turbo engine.
All of them come standard with a 5-speed manual transmission or an optional 4-speed automatic transmission.
The Fortuner was unveiled in South America – Ecuador in 2005 and launched in 2007. Versions of the Fortuner have come from Venezuela and Thailand. There are various models released, originally only 4×4 and 4×2 options using a V6 4.0 L petrol engine were sold. Since 2010 a 2.7 L engine option has been released and the new face lift model has arrived.
The Fortuner was sold from 2007 until late 2009. In 2010 the Ecuadorian government exempted all hybrid cars from import taxes, which reduced the number of Fortuner cars sold because Toyota's Hybrid Highlander Limited had a similar price (after taxes, fees and exemptions) and more features. In late 2011 the Ecuadorian government decided to only give tax exemptions to hybrid cars with a maximum of 1.8 litre engines, leaving out both the Fortuner and Hybrid Highlander, in consequence the Fortuner again lost market share but gained back position vs Highlander. Current versions sold in Ecuador: Fortuner 4×4 with a 2.7 L I4 engine. 162 Hp 256 Nm @ 3800 rpm Fortuner 4×4 with a 4.0 L V6 engine. 234Hp 376 Nm @ 3800 rpm All of them come standard with a 5-speed manual transmission or an optional 4-speed automatic transmission.
The Fortuner was unveiled in Egypt in 2010 and launched in 2011. It is available in 2 trims with 2 petrol engines: the 4L V6 1GR-FE, and the 2.7L inline-4 2TR-FE. All have automatic transmission and 4×4. The car is assembled in Egypt at AAV.
Fortuner production increased to more than 950 vehicles per month from the initial 500 units per month.
Initially there was only one variant sold in India of the Fortuner, which is the 3.0 L 1KD-FTV I4 Common Rail Turbo Diesel engine 4×4 MT, with leather upholstery and climatronic as standard. But at the 2012 Indian Auto Expo, Toyota launched 3.0 L 4×2 Manual and Automatic transmission. The top-of-the-range Fortuner 3.0 L 4×4 AT was introduced to the Indian market in January 2015  alongside with a 2.5 L 2KD-FTV I4 Common Rail Turbo Diesel engine with 5-speed manual and 5-speed automatic transmission. This 2.5 L variant was only available in 4×2 configuration.
The Fortuner was introduced in 2005 at the Jakarta International Motor Show. It is positioned below the Land Cruiser and above the RAV4.
Initially the Fortuner was sold in 2.7G and 2.7V trim levels. The rear wheel drive 2.7G was offered in the base with fabric interior and the Luxury with leather interior and premium sound system. The 4-wheel drive Fortuner 2.7V is only available as the luxury model. The V trim with the 3.0 diesel engine is not officially sold in Indonesia, due to the heavier tax regulations imposed on vehicles with 4×4 drive trains and engines having volumes of 3.0 L or more. It was specially imported for the Sumatra and Kalimantan markets.
The 2.7G is fitted with a 4-speed automatic transmission and a two-wheel drive with a 2.7 L petrol engine. The rear-wheel-drive 2.7G and 4×4 2.7V come only with automatic transmission. The 2.5G was later added to the market and adds four-wheel drive powered by a 2.5 L diesel engine giving 75 kW (102 PS; 101 hp). It is mated to a 5-speed manual.
In mid-2009, a new variant was added to the lineup, which is the 2.5G with a 4-speed automatic transmission. The 2.5G can be ordered with TRD Sportivo body kits, which is also available as dealer installed options for other models.

Toyota started importing the Fortuner in Pakistan in 2009. Pakistan started local assembly of the 2.7L Fortuner in March 2013, as said by Pervez Ghais CEO, Toyota Indus Motor company in interview to Bloomberg. The locally assembled Fortuner will be priced approximately 37% lower than the imported version mainly due the 150% tax Pakistan imposes on imported vehicles with engines with capacities greater than 1800 cc.
The 2.7G model is equipped with the 2.7 L 2TR-FE engine with VVT-i technology, which produces 118 kW (160 PS; 158 hp) at 5200 rpm and 241 N⋅m (178 lb⋅ft) of torque at 3800 rpm.
