    Hey Guys

    Anyone know when the face-lift Fortuner will be coming to SA?

    Thanks PieterOos.

    Expect a price increase.


    Usually time is the biggest enemy of any sort of consumer goods, and cars are just the same. That’s where facelifts come in, because they give a healthy refresh to a vehicle without the expense of a full redesign.
    A facelift often reinvigorates interest in an older model and can lead to increased sales, plus the manufacturer usually ask an increase in price.

    It doesn't look that bad it's just that front bumper that is terrible with those chrome fog light surrounds.

    I think most v angle are going to be under the skin... The 2018 models have already been upgraded with power tailgate and navigation

    laugh - The new Fortuner is one of the best looking SUVs out there. Why do you think it sells so well. It is not all about performance. Have you seen the new Pajero Sport and Nissan Patrol - ugly !!

    Almost certainly a facelift in 2019 given that it was launched in 2016. When in 2019, who knows? I don't think that Toyota have to put themselves under too much pressure in terms of rushing it to the marketplace when you look at how well the current version is selling. My wife's daily is a 2018 (with power tail gate) and she loves it.

    It sells so well because its a Toyota, no other reason. But as a non-Toyota lover I also think it looks great!

    Toyota saying 3rd quarter of 2019 the facelift will be out but, they have no details on it.

    I'm in the market for an Fortuner and hell it's difficult getting a good deal, there are 448 Fortuners just on Auto trader alone!

    Reviving this thread.

    Anyone have any inside info on firstly, the timing of a facelift, and secondly, what changes are we likely to see? The standard front bumper and lights upgrade? Zenons? LED's?

    I wonder if they will add a 2.4 4x4 MANUAL to the line up?

    A Fortuner Dakar would be nice! Would be great if some of that bumper design came over to the Fortuner

    Seems like the specials is to make place for the Hilux Legend coming and from the little they know it sounds like a fortuner facelift will not be this year.

    I'm also expecting some sort of special edition for the Fortuner

    We haven't had any special edition on the gd6, the previous model we had the Epic and the LTD Edition

    Default Infotainment

    Ok it is not a facelift, only a new infotainment system:

    Toyota SA upgrades infotainment on Fortuner 2,8 GD-6 modelsinfotainment upgrade.

    Published by Ryan Bubear on 04.07.2019

    Toyota South Africa Motors has upgraded the infotainment system on all Fortuner 2,8 GD-6 derivatives, after rolling out the changes to its Hilux GR-Sport and Hilux Legend 50 variants.
    So, what does the upgrade (which follows an earlier change in August 2018) entail? Well, the infotainment screen has been enlarged from six to eight inches, and is flush-mounted and integrated into the facia. In addition, traditional rotary dials for volume and tune functions have been added.
    The new unit furthermore features key-function shortcut buttons and satellite navigation, as well as DVD, USB, Bluetooth and auxiliary interfaces, in addition to serving as a display for the reverse camera. The system can be manipulated via steering wheel controls.
    As before, the local Fortuner range comprises nine derivatives, with four engine options, two transmissions and the choice of 4x2 and 4x4 configurations. Check out updated pricing for the line-up below...
    Pricing:
    Toyota Fortuner 2,7 VVTi RB 6AT: R490 800
    ToyotaFortuner 2,4 GD-6 RB: R509 400
    Toyota Fortuner 2,4 GD-6 RB 6AT: R529 300
    Toyota Fortuner 2,4 GD-6 4x4 6AT: R556 400
    Toyota Fortuner 2,8 GD-6 RB: R606 000
    Toyota Fortuner 2,8 GD-6 RB 6AT: R626 300

    Wonder where that image comes from, maybe aftermarket. It looks like a Lexus with that spindle grill - not a fan personally.
