Toyota India has officially confirmed that the new Fortuner will not use Innova Crysta's 2.4-litre GD turbodiesel engine. The SUV's diesel variant will be only available with the big 2.8-litre GD turbodiesel engine with a manual or automatic gearbox option.
The 2.4-litre engine in the Innova Crysta churns out 149bhp at 3,400rpm and 343Nm of peak torque. The powerplant is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox.
The previous generation Toyota Fortuner was offered with two engine options: 2.5-litre and 3.0-litre D-4D units. The Japanese automaker hasn't commented on why the SUV is not getting the 2.4-litre diesel unit.
The 2017 Toyota Fortuner is powered by two engines: 2.7-litre petrol and 2.8-litre diesel. The petrol engine produces 164bhp and 245Nm of torque while the diesel unit churns out 177bhp of power and 360Nm of peak torque.
Both the motors are mated with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic gearbox. The Fortuner diesel is also available with a four-wheel-drive option.
The SUV is based on Toyota's modular Toyota New Generation Architecture (TNGA) platform. The Fortuner is 4,795mm long, 1,855mm wide and 1,835mm high, and the wheelbase is 2,750mm long.
