What to Expect: Updates and Changes for the 2024 Toyota Fortuner

[adinserter block="3"]

Rumors have been circulating about a potential facelift for the 2024 Toyota Fortuner, but there is strong speculation that it might actually be an entirely new generation.

Taking a retrospective look, it becomes evident that the original Fortuner was developed in 2004, and the second generation made its debut approximately eight years ago. These factors strongly imply that a new version of the Fortuner is long overdue. Nevertheless, it is crucial to acknowledge that no official confirmation has been released regarding this matter at present.


Derived from the TNGA-F platform, which is shared with notable models like the Tundra, Land Cruiser, and Lexus LX, the upcoming Fortuner and Hilux will benefit from this robust foundation. These vehicles are anticipated to undergo significant enhancements, particularly in terms of size and interior space, boasting a longer wheelbase compared to their predecessors. Moreover, the new Fortuner will exude a more refined and opulent appearance, drawing inspiration from Lexus designs and featuring an upscale grille, contributing to an elevated level of sophistication.

According to various websites, the interior of the new Fortuner is expected to undergo significant modernization. Key updates include the inclusion of a large touch screen and a digital instrument cluster, enhancing the overall technology integration. Additionally, the new Fortuner is likely to offer a panoramic sunroof, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), and other advanced technologies. As premium SUVs continue to offer more features, the new Fortuner is expected to be well-equipped, with amenities such as ventilated seats, dual-zone climate control, connected car technology, and a voice assistant, providing a high level of comfort and convenience for occupants.

Toyota Fortuner 2024 Powertrain

Toyota has confirmed plans to introduce hybrid powertrain options for the 2024 Toyota HiLux and 2024 Toyota Fortuner, as reported by CarMag in South Africa. These models will be equipped with a new engine featuring a mild-hybrid system, as revealed earlier this year by Drive. While the fuel efficiency of these hybrid versions may not match that of Toyota’s dedicated hybrid hatchbacks and SUVs, such as the Prius or Camry Hybrid, the mild-hybrid system will provide additional power to the engine rather than allowing pure electric driving at low speeds, which is a characteristic of traditional hybrids.

The specific details regarding the integration of the mild-hybrid system into the 2024 Toyota HiLux and Fortuner are not yet clear. It remains uncertain whether the mild-hybrid system will be paired with the existing 2.8-liter turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine or if a rumored 2.4-liter turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine with the hybrid technology will be introduced in these vehicles.
