Looks like you went in for the chrome-accessories package that was so hotly discussed on this thread a couple of pages back.

Acutally not that bad. Only if you take a scopic look at center console it resembles Innova, otherwise ok. The back view from driver seat is totally different, infact its good.

Great looking beast. Congrats! The chrome bits on the rear look a bit tacky in my opinion.

Correction... Looks like my Dad went in for the chrome package. I think i would have got rid of the chrome package if i was there back in India

Right now i am in Sydney drooling over the pictures and biting away my time to get myself behind the driving wheel

With all those accessories kit for Fortuner, Toyota has left no stone unturned to make money off this much awaited SUV.

Thanks buddy. The guys from the cochin nippon toyota called Dad up by mid june ( i think it is the same time as you mentioned when they called you up) and said booking had started and if he was to get hold of the first one , he would have to come down soon enough as Nippon Toyota already had couple more bookings confirmed.

By sheer luck, when those guys called Dad up , he was on his way to cochin. He gave them a visit and wrote them a cheque for 3 lakhs and Voila , the Fortuner was booked

I read somewhere that they Toyota have confirmed booking's for 3100 vehicles. If that true than 3100 X 20 lacs approx per vehicle comes to a whooping 620 crores!!!
And they say that India is effected by the ongoing world recession and money is in short supply etc etc!!!
Long live India and long live Indians!!!

Toyota's reputation is/will drive sales. Otherwise, I find it a little overated or maybe its the initial euphoria.
Felt the same too. I saw a new black Fortuner here in the HSR Layout, Bangalore and and I felt that it's footprint is not as huge everyone made it out to be. Also, I didn't like how the rear of the vehicle looked as compared to the front.

I saw a white Endeavour on ORR 2,3 minutes after that and it did nothing but confirm what I just felt.

Default Toyota's Fortuner a huge hit...bookings closed for now!!

Toyota's newly launched sports utility vehicle Fortuner has been a massive hit with 3,100 orders. Meanwhile, considering the rush, the company has stopped taking further orders for the next seven months.Elaborating on the huge demand, Toyota Kirloskar Motor's Marketing Deputy Managing Director Sandeep Singh said they have asked the dealers not to take further orders from customers for the next seven months.The demand for the new car is such that the company has a backlog of customers willing to buy it. Though at the moment, it is just registering the names of interested clients and is revving up the production to meet the growing demand.Throwing light on this, Singh said that they can assemble 550 Fortuners per month and are working to touch the 600 mark.

This vehicle suits if bought in addition to a luxury sedan, sole buy would deprive one of the luxury!

Also, I do not see the end of Endy. with this, Pajero shall be severly affected.

If Toyota can't deal with the nos. thumbs down to them. Afterall dearth of vehicles is not expected from the World's leading carmaker. Where is their research & logistics department? Or has the design deparments philosophy rubbed on them!

More demand for Fortuner is going to come from smaller towns, where Toyota is spelt as "Toyta"!

The fortuner has made good fortune for Toyota. Already seen 5 on road till today.

Looks like Ford needs an endeavor to climb the Everest soon.
Get the new endeavor fast.
