Fortuner and 4Runner Side by Side

Here's a picture of the Fortuner right next to a 2006 4Runner.

The Fortuner is taller and narrower.

I think the Fortuner looks like a RX/Rav4 compared to the 4Runner. The 4Runner looks more unique and truck-like.

I was in the same boat with you - googled it. Looks like it is the SUV for the Mid-East Asia market. I found alot of information on the Toyota Phillipean website.

4x4 diesel - wish we had that.

Optitron gauges - REALLY wish we had those in the 2006.

It's based on the Hilux, a heavy-duty truck, so it's actually rougher, tougher and more rugged than the 4Runner, hence less luxurious. The seats are manual and it has no sunroof.

I'm not too crazy about the offset hoodscoop. I like hoodscoops, but isn't the fortuner's a little offset to the right? Just looks awkward to me.

From what I can tell, I think that it is offset a bit due to the diesel engine. It is actually a functioning intake.

Ah. I see. They could have probably found a desgin to center it though. I'm just nitpicking though. If I'm not mistaken, doesn't the fortuner have rear drum brakes instead of discs?

I have talked to some friends in Costa Rica.
They have the Fortuner there and the 4R as well

The fortuner is basically the Hilux Pick up made SUV.
Many parts of the Hilux are exchangeable. Including the hood.
looking it from the front you will have problems finding differences between both.

Yes it does have rear brakes and It has a shorter wheelbase than the 4R.
The engines are smaller and they have a couple options in diesels also. The 4R only has the 4.0l gas or the 3.0l TDI. No V8 available to either.

The fortuner does not have to meet the requirements of USA in terms of height of bumper and It has a higher front clearance.

Think of the fortuner as the little tough brother of the 4R.

And it is not a wussy Rav or higlander... it may even beat the 4R in terms of tough construction.

The 3.0 liter TurboDiesel engine is no longer available for the 4Runner. If you want Diesel, you have to buy either the Fortuner (around same price as 4R), or the more expensive Prado.
Or, if you have really deep pockets, double-the-price, 4.2 liter V6 TurboDiesel Land Cruiser.

Yuck. I don't care how rugged it is, it looks like the lead vehicle in the Soccer Mom Parade. I sure hope this is not the direction that the next generation 4R will go. Let's hope it is styled more like the Tacoma, or the 07 Tundra.

From:

"Off roader: The 3.0 liter TurboDiesel engine is no longer available for the 4Runner. If you want Diesel, you have to buy either the Fortuner (around same price as 4R), or the more expensive Prado."


-------------------

The website says you still can. I am not there so I just post what I can obtain online.

here is the link:

http://www.toyotacr.com/carhome.aspx?idcat=1&idcar=8#

In that page go to "arme su toyota" (build your toyota)

See, only two options of engines, TDI still there.

The Hilux is a Tacoma....so the Tacoma, Hilux, 4Runner and this Fortuner thing would all be on the same platform.....
