Good to hear the news.

On a side note, what's up with the different grille on the Endeavour? Is it an aftermarket add on? I must say it looks quite cool.

All the best,

While searching for my tires for my Scorpio, I casually happened to check tires in size 265/60 R18 for the new Fortuner & Endeavour and there are not many options for AT's even abroad [as compared to 265/65 R17]

I found 3 tires
BFGood rich
GoodYear
Pirelli Scorpion ATR

Can these be imported as you had imported your BMW tires? If someone really needs one.

Import option is always there but with the high $ price & high freight cost + duty it will shoot the tyre price too high.

In fact irrespective of that i had thought of importing the BFG T/A KO2 but then found out its speed rating is only 180km/h so dropped the idea.

A question to the Guru's of Off roading

Does the older version of Fortuner 4x4 Auto (2015 model) come with Rear Differential Lock? What about MT version? Did it come with Rear Differential Lock?

No Rear Diff Lock on any of the Fortuner variants in India.

While taking a quick left turn in my office parking, the right rear seat got unhooked & dropped down flat;

Makes me question this mechanism;

Awesome Karan! Very nice click of the fun!

Did you get to the root cause of the rear seat unfolding by itself ?

I'm sure you had a wonderful time. Nice clicks!!

7 cars in all - 6 Fortuners and 1 Endeavour; the same ratio as sales (6:1).
