But anyways, if Toyota is planning to launch the new Fortuner in the Diwali season, then it's the right time as far as our Indian market is concerned.

Regarding the 28 Lakh price tag, hope its the top of the line 2.8 4WD A/T, and if yes then the new Endy will have some sleepless nights going ahead!

The Toyota fortuner looks like a boat:

If you see it from the front it's like a yacht

The high pointing lights makes it sleek but design as if away from the water. This amphibious looking SUV will surely be a hit as Toyota has huge fan following and a great service and reliability standard.

I see them here in Australia everyday and still have not been able to digest the looks. The current one to me looks much better than this contraption. There is no doubting reliability though.

Came across this article on cartoq.com. Don't know how credible it is but then it talks about Toyota ditching the launch of the new Fortuner due to NGT ban and related confusion.

After waiting for the all new Fortuner for 2 long years this is what I get. So many spy shots, so many speculations what not and in the end I come to know that I won't get it. I was suppose to buy the current Fortuner back in 2014 ending. I would have completed at least 50,000km had I bought one.
If the news is true my dreams have been shattered to say the least.

I know I can buy the existing one but that one just doesn't cut it in today's times.
The only option left will be the Endeavour but only automatic with 3.2 ltr is a bit disappointing.

Reports on the WWW so far, indicate a Diwali launch and other forecasts are much gloomier(given the NGT and its unfounded meddlings).

Have been agog myself, I own a 2013 2WD5AT and want to replace it with the new one.

What do the pundits in here think about the resale values of the current face-lifted version(like mine)? Should I hold on and swap with the new one at launch or flog it now for (perhaps) a better price?

Thanks

Toyota launched the new Innova Crysta despite NGT issues. Fortuner too should be launched, when, that Toyota might answer.

NGT's ban will be contested in courts and if the court sees the wider picture, this decision should be revoked. Moreover, there is a sizable market besides NCR and Kerala.

I personally think, stock of the current gen Fortuner is with Toyota. If anyone has got a new Fortuner, could they confirm with the VIN as to if Toyota is manufacturing both. I am not sure if the current Fortuner is built in India, hence this suspicion.

But I am positive and maybe in line to get this if it has the MT 4X4 in top end.

Harsha Toyota said that they have stopped the production of the current generation fortuner.

Does it mean the new gen Fortuner is around the corner?
They are hopeful on a post diwali launch

Even in Kerala only 6 town's came under the NGT madness. The other places were excluded.

I happened to read somewhere that Crysta production is ramped up due to large demand. Since both are on the same production line, Fortuner production may have stopped. I don't think it makes sense to buy the Fortuner now given that the much better version is just around the corner.

Apparently the current Fortuner has full-time 4 wheel drive (TORSEN, which works great for me), while the new one has to be switched into 4wd. Other aspects may be better, but the main one is the safety rating for the new Fortuner. Otherwise, I prefer the current version.

True. This was a serious disappointment for me. Didn't expect this from Toyota since they are known for their off-road credentials.

The interior is light years ahead of the current version which looks like a basic old jap taxi interior. Not to mention the more modern engine & 6 Speed Automatic. Personally, I would grudgingly accept the lack of center differential and AWD for the much more modern interiors and engine gearbox combo. If you prefer the current version, grab one before it is gone.
