Since its 2005 introduction as a diesel-fed seven-seater SUV, the Toyota Fortuner has become the bestselling body-on ladder frame chassis SUV available in the market. Built on top of the common platform of diesel-fed vehicles that the Japanese automaker calls an Innovative International Multi-purpose Vehicle (IMV) series, the Fortuner was meant to be part of a global supply line of diesel-fed, rear-wheel-drive, or four-wheel-drive utility haulers, with their operation bases being Thailand (which exports the Fortuner to the Philippine market as a completely built-up unit), Indonesia, Argentina and South Africa.
The second generation Toyota Fortuner was released in 2016, with noticeable improvements in the powertrain, noise/vibration/harshness (NVH), suspension damping, and exterior. Minor changes were applied to the SUV just as the pandemic hit, this included a more stylish look similar to its premium Lexus stablemates, smartphone app-friendly in-car infotainment, parking cameras for blind spots, and added electronic safety aids.
