Should not be any different. Dealers are just trying to make more money upfront

Not surprising, since 80% bookings would be in white and therefore, production for these will be prioritized. For other colors, they will wait till a certain (minimum) no. of bookings before a batch is manufactured.

Hi all, I'm almost ready to book a new MT 4x4 but just now my SA told me that they have one 2020 AT 4x4 available,

Car is going to be used by my father almost already chauffeur driven ( so Apple play etc doesn't matter, in fact even AT/ MT doesn't matter) I need 4x4 for peace of mind.

now I'm confused. Any suggestions?

Just to clarify I would save aprox 3 lakhs if I go for 2020 4x4 AT instead of 2021 4x4 MT.

I would suggest to go for 2020 AT. Since car will be chauffer driven, power bump up in 2021 model can be ignored along with some other features.
Additionally, AT will be very easy to drive around when self driven and it will fetch more resalve value compared to MT.

Sometime or the other you might drive it and having Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, more power, more creature comforts is too tempting to leave and not to forget the Facelifted model has a retuned suspension setup, only after reviews are out one will get to know if the ride is better or less bumpy.

Spending that additional 3L over the 2020 AT 4X4 to go for the 2021 4X4 MT will be worth it, keep it for long then.

I have considered that too, but as he quite go often to farm, where having a 4x4 gives me peace of mind.

Why doesn't Toyota launch the Fortuner 4x4 with Petrol engine? Is the 2.7 petrol engine not capable to handle the 4x4? Feels risky to plonk in 45 big ones on a diesel motor in the NCR now

See peak torque figures on the petrol motor. 4x4 makes no sense at all on the petrol avatar of this 2.5 tonne SUV.

Toyota offers a 4x4 part time on the Fortuner 2.7L sold in Dubai with 249Nm of torque as compared to 245Nm in India version.

In my view, the 4x4 sells in limited numbers and Toyota doesn't want to add an additional petrol variant. They know an enthusiast with this budget won't bother much about the 10 year vs. 15 year life

Performance figures for updated Fortuner. Sub 10 second 0-100 timing is impressive if true.

I dont think the Fortuner weighs 2.5 tonnes. Besides you are overestimating how much power and torque you need when offroading. Some of the world best offroaders barely had enough power relatively speaking. Power and Torque is needed more for everyday usage, city and highway, not so much for offroading.

Next-gen Toyota Fortuner to likely debut by 2022.

Following the recently launched Fortuner facelift, the all new model will likely premiere by next year and bring in a host of changes.

SUV, Yoshiki Konishi, chief engineer, Toyota Motor Corporation:

Quote:
“We’ll launch it next year.”

Quote:
New Fortuner to ditch hydraulic power steering for an electric unit
Fortuner to continue being a body-on-frame SUV
Future powertrains to be engineered for electrification
Quote:
Fortuner’s powertrains can be expected to be engineered for some form of electrification. “At this time, a (pure) diesel powertrain is not the best.
Quote:
We have two types of hybrids – one is a strong hybrid and the second, a mild hybrid. So, these are one of our solutions.”
