Toyota Fortuner TRD Unveiled

Fortuner TRD2

While this is an India-only model, this sporty-looking Toyota Fortuner TRD really looks the part. Here's hoping Toyota SA will take notes and make a version for SA customers.

Toyota India calls this the Fortuner TRD Celebratory Edition to celebrate 10 years of the vehicle in the Sub Continent. Available only in 2.8-litre turbodiesel 4x2 automatic, the Fortuner TRD is offered in a 2-tone colour setup. 

It also gets red TRD badges at the front and rear, as well as some attractive 18-inch TRD Sportivo alloy wheels which are finished in charcoal black. The vehicle is also fitted with blacked-out pillars and skid plates. The cabin also receives some sportier updates in the form of black and red colour theme with red stitching. 

It's interesting to see the TRD badge still be slapped onto Toyota products when the Gazoo Racing (GR) brand is on the ascent. Do you think Toyota should look into making some Fortuner GR models?
