GALLERY: Toyota Fortuner 2.4 VRZ 4×2 with TRD kit

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.

        looking at the photos, the wheel arch interiors has no mud guard cover reveal a white steel structure.. the nvh must be very poor. look at continental suv as well as kia sorento they are well padded with soft materia for better noise insulation…

          I saw the inside body of sorento. Its soft material is worst than Toyota.
          Fortuner one is so much better. The seams are also covered or coated. I think this is not a problem. Looks strange yes, but its still tough and quieter.

    Wow luxurious looking interior!!! Seriously the bodykit sux big time… without the bodykit is nicer, what’s wrong with designer??? The black grill looks weirdly cheap!!! The luxury feel is gone the moment u put the blackened grill and fog lamp cover. Come onla toyota, bring in the Lexus looking bodykit design laaa not this AhBeng style…

      The black chrome grill will look nice on a black or dark red/maroon paint.

      Toyota used the wrong colour to show off the accessories.

    Menacing look. Although I think bigger rims would look better on the Fortuner

    OMG! Did I see wrongly? A 200k car still using manual hand brake? Nowadays even a C segment car has Electronic Parking Brake. Just bcoz of its brand & better RV makes it overprice? What else will I get compare to the same class?

      4WD car with off road capability, I would prefer a manual hand brake anyway.

      Doesn’t mention hill start assist, so you will need the manual handbrake.

    Paultan, can u get your boys to clean up your Car Base contents. For example, you have numerous 2.4 ltr fortuner & some are no longer available for sale. So if u click the wrong model, you have to start your search all over again!
