New Fortuner Comes With More Powerful Engine and New Flagship Type
Since the second generation was introduced in 2016, in addition to the full model change, Toyota has strengthened the DNA of the Fortuner, which is rugged and reliable, by presenting a powerful and responsive diesel engine coded 2GD 2,393 cc VNT Intercooler. This diesel engine complements the existing 2TR-FE 2,694 cc Dual VVT-i petrol engine to meet the diverse needs of customers.
Although it has been equipped with a choice of two (2) powerful engines, there are still customers who hope that the Fortuner can be relied upon to use an engine with greater power and torque to increase the fun to drive element, as well as complement the exterior and interior which is now sporty thanks to a touch of TOYOTA GAZOO Racing's motorsport DNA.
Committed to responding to this need, Toyota introduced the New Fortuner as an ever-better car that is now equipped with a choice of a new diesel engine coded 1GD-FTV 2,755 cc VNT Intercooler which produces more power up to 203.9 PS at 3,000 – 4,000 rpm and 50.9 Kgm of torque at 1,600 – 2,800 rpm.

With 36% more power output and around 25% higher torque, the 1GD engine recorded a faster 0-100 km/h acceleration of 11.9 seconds, while the 2GD engine was 14 seconds. Likewise, when accelerating at a speed of 60 – 80 km/h, the 1GD engine recorded a faster time of only 2.8 seconds, while the 2GD engine was 3.7 seconds.
"From the start, we developed the Fortuner as a tough and reliable 7-seater SUV. Equipped with this DNA, Fortuner can support customer activities on various road conditions in Indonesia. Over time, we continue to improve the performance of the Fortuner by introducing powerful machines. Starting from the 2TR gasoline engine, then the 2KD diesel engine continued with 2GD. Today, we present a new diesel engine option, the 1GD, which offers greater power and torque. The introduction of this new engine is expected to provide a complete choice and meet with customer's expectation that prioritizes the performance aspects of the Fortuner," said Marketing Director of PT Toyota-Astra Motor, Anton Jimmi Suwandy.
