Toyota South Africa has announced specifications and pricing for its Epic and Epic Black editions of the Fortuner. See what's new here.
The Toyota Fortuner has been South Africa's top-selling SUV for some time and a multiple winner of the Adventure SUV category in the #CarsAwards-powered by WesBank. For 2020, Toyota has announced the Fortuner Epic and Epic Black.
The Epic and Epic Black are both based on the 2.8-litre GD-6 derivatives and have been given some nice upgrades, both inside and out. There's a branded nudge-bar and tow bar, while Epic Black models gain a bi-tone design with black roof, black roof rails, black side-view mirrors and unique, all-black 18-inch alloy wheels.
Inside, there are metal scuff plates and Epic-branded carpet set. Toyota hasn't changed the leather interior trim and 7-seat layout, and standard spec includes niceties such as dual-zone climate control, smart entry and push start, touchscreen infotainment system with navigation, reverse camera, TFT Multi-Information Display (MID), blue Optitron instrumentation, cruise control, steering switches, power-adjustable driver seat and power back door.
