Toyota Bahrain unveiled the all-new Toyota Fortuner on Saturday March 12th, 2016 at the Toyota showroom in Sitra, with the attendance of Ebrahim K. Kanoo’s top management and Toyota officials. The new Fortuner is a second generation model which builds on its heritage of being a durable sport utility vehicle (SUV) with impressive off-road capabilities.
Sharing Toyota’s development philosophy for the vehicle, the Fortuner’s Executive Chief Engineer, Hiroki Nakajima, explained: “Our development concept was to build a true SUV that has style and confidence. The all-new Fortuner is the outcome of our continuous efforts to redefine toughness while offering our customers powerful vehicles with drastically improved off-road capabilities. To ensure peace of mind for our customers, we developed a new stronger frame which enables the vehicle to withstand rough road conditions, in addition to an improved four-link suspension system for a more comfortable drive. The new engine offers high torque at lower RPMs. Furthermore, the design concept is rough but cool, with three bold, iconic lines. On top of all of this, the all-new Fortuner offers premium utility and safety features.”
According to Takayuki Yoshitsugu, Chief Representative, Middle East and North Africa Representative Office, Toyota Motor Corporation, “The all-new Fortuner is a completely redesigned SUV that enhances driving confidence on every level while setting a new standard for SUVs all around the world. The result of this is a comprehensive revamp, creating a unique SUV that’s every bit as comfortable on the school run as it is on the region’s toughest off-road trails. We sincerely appreciate the support of all our customers and we look forward to delighting them with this latest model.”
