The first pic just looks like an LC.
But the second pic looks like a Highlander like @TOR said.
But disappointing about the 4spd a/t bit.

Haha a 20 lac LC for the people who cant afford the 1cr one .
Looks neat btw.
Looks like a model change more to me than a facelift(going purely by the effort put in).

It looks very much like the LC. I would have been happy if they had done something to the ride quality of current fortuner & probably bettered the braking system as well.

A Land Cruiser"ish" Fortuner is just a mouth watering proposition. I hope they dont increase the price as I think it is already overpriced. A good entertainment system would seal the deal.

Chunky front bumpers are LC inspired. Infact, both the Jap SUVs - the upcoming Fortuner and the CRV look visually like their bigger siblings, namely the Land Cruiser & the MRV respectively.

Definately LC / Highlanderish
But now a days this is what companies have started to do.
Give the look of higher end models in their lower ones.
Take another example from the Toyota stable itself.
The Altis looks very close to the Camry and with it's facelift it's set to get even closer

If it comes, I am fitting the Xenons and ICE on my Fortuner. Don't care for the AT or the new looks.

Vicky.in claimed that facelifted Toyota Innova would be launched in 2012. When i checked out the pictures, one of them was the new Fortuner. The link is as below

The rear lights seems to be rounded, especially the one on the back door.

The headlamps are seeming a direct lift from LC now, especially just been seeing an LC direct upfront today and adhering Toyota family look. Getting curious on how the rear is going to look compared to the present if this is really the new TFort.

Facelifted Fortuner will be launched in Thailand soon. So proper clear pics should start coming soon.

The facelift is welcome and the Fort now resembles the LC!! I've seen quite some people changing the grille on their T-Fort to make it look like the Prado.

I hope they upgrade the ICE and provide a touch-screen type with GPS et al.
The dashboard should also be upgraded because it looks like the Innova right now which retails for just half the cost. I'm sure the Fort owners would appreciate it a lot!

As Sahil mentioned, it would be a while till it gets launched here. Maybe diwali 2011 or early 2012. Lets see.

I fear this facelifted Fortuner will have a higher price than the current model. I read somewhere in the region of 30 Lakhs. :(
