The Toyota Fortuner range was recently updated in Malaysia, which saw revisions to existing variants – 2.4 4×4 and the petrol-powered 2.7 SRZ 4×4 – as well as the introduction of two new ones – 2.4 VRZ 4×2 and 2.4 VRZ 4×4. Here, we bring you a full gallery of a 2.4 VRZ 4×2 that has been fitted with a few optional accessories.

Revisions for the Fortuner aren’t particularly extensive, with new LED front fog lights being installed on the 2.4 VRZ and 2.7 SRZ models, along with rear disc brakes that now come as standard on all variants.

The 2.4 VRZ 4×2 has an equipment list that is largely similar to the 2.7 SRZ, with items like automatic bi-LED headlights (with LED DRLs), 18-inch alloy wheels, puddle lights, keyless entry, push-button start, a 4.2-inch colour multi-info display, auto front and rear air-con, cruise control, brown leather upholstery, an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, premium solar and security tint, a powered tailgate and a DVD-AVX infotainment system with an eight-inch touchscreen and six speakers.

It’s the same case when it comes to safety, with seven airbags (including one for the driver’s knee), ABS with EBD and brake assist and Vehicle Stability Control (VSC). The 4×4 model also receives Active Traction Control (A-TRC) and Downhill Assist Control (DAC). The last item is new for the 2.7 SRZ 4×4.

This particular unit of the 2.4 VRZ 4×2 is specified with a TRD Sportivo body kit (RM4,982), which tacks on an aerokit, black front grille, emblem, body stripes and specific floors mats. There’s also a panoramic view monitor (RM2,650) and a blind spot monitor with rear cross traffic alert (RM1,855) as well.

Under the bonnet, the 2.4 litre models get a 2GD-FTV 2.4 litre turbodiesel with 150 PS and 400 Nm, while the 2.7 SRZ receives a 2TR-FE 2.7 litre naturally-aspirated Dual VVT-i petrol engine that outputs 166 PS and 245 Nm.

A six-speed automatic transmission is the only pairing for both engines, with the 2.4 VRZ variants and 2.7 SRZ getting paddle shifters. Aside from the 2.4 VRZ 4×2 which is rear-wheel drive, all other Fortuner variants are equipped with a part-time four-wheel drive system with an automatic disconnecting differential (ADD) as well as a rear differential lock.

Price wise, the base 2.4 AT 4×4 kicks things off at RM169,800, and is followed by the 2.7 SRZ AT 4×4 at RM181,800. Next up is the 2.4 VRZ 4×2 that retails at RM185,800, while the 2.4 VRZ 4×4 is yours for RM195,800. All prices are on-the-road without insurance, inclusive of a five-year, unlimited-mileage warranty.
