Unlikely Toyota is going to re-engineer the system just for India ! The 11 speaker JBL system is still available in South African and Australian Fortuners...

Re: 2021 Toyota Fortuner Legender & Facelift Review

Got my 4X4 AT Super White the day before yesterday!

Here is the price break up-

Ex Showroom- 4122000

TCS- 41220/-

Insurance- 92480/- (Outside-National Insurance)

Extended Warranty- 61500/- (5 Years, 1.5 Lakh Kms)

Accessories- 35000/-

RTO- 145000/- approx.(Will be registered in GJ for tax saving)

Total- 44.97 Lakhs OTR.

They were being too pushy for their own Insurance, I took my stand and told them to cancel the delivery. So, accessories were added later on though the prices of accessories are high, they are at least genuine Toyota products. So I obliged.

Here are the pics-

Congrats. The road tax is very tempting . I didn't see the JBL branding on the headunit, nor the silver JBL speakers on the dashboards. Is that really removed from newer 4x4 variants?

Booked my 4X4 AT a week back getting delivery by next week.
The jbl editions were headaches for audio upgrades, for better outputs the hu had to be changed, wheras for the 4x2 version one was good to go with a processor or dsp amp. This is as per the info i got from my audio guy, the first question he asked me when i called him was, hope you did not get the legender or the 4x4 with the jbl unit or we will have to change the hu! However for some the stock jbl is more then adequate. For me a stock system has never cut it. Upgraded the system on the current fortuner as well, sounds perfect now

Unfortunately, Yes

Has been removed from all 4X4 Fortuners (Regular Fortuner 4X4, Legender 4X4 and GR-S all lose the JBL system).

Most probable reason for the deletion is to aid the HyCross ZX and ZX(O) production, which has been very limited, since it also uses a JBL head unit.

Re: 2021 Toyota Fortuner Legender & Facelift Review

so this is why I love big diesels. effortless cruising with fantastic FE. this was the average over a 300 km trip (actually by the end of the trip the FE went up to 15.2 kpl)

Many congratulations, mate! That road tax amount is absolute steal for a Fortuner, one would end up paying similar amount for a Maruti Swift here in KA

Looks like it, from the pictures.

Absolutely! It is pure bliss to "feel" the relaxed chugging of the engine at these speeds - there is no replacement for displacement

Re: 2021 Toyota Fortuner Legender & Facelift Review

So this came up today. 10 K in 5 months. Slow by my standards but of late highway drives have been limited. Hope to cross 25K by the time its first birthday comes up! the T-fort never fails to impress each time I take it on the highway, be it relaxed cruising, spirited driving or overtakes, which in sport mode are seriously grin inducing. 510 NM of torque is really something!

This is great mile munching with the great machine. I test drove the Fortuner few weeks back. When i engaged the D, the vehicle starts moving with a significant jerk. This happens throughout my test drive. The SA informed that this is normal, but i have not seen such jerk in other TC vehicles when the vehicle starts moving after engaging D. What is your feedback?

Fortuner jerks only when you engage D from N without pressing brakes. Your feet have to be firmly on the brakes to avoid this jerk. Were you pressing brakes when you engaged D ?

Yup it's normal. its on account of very high torque in the engine that gets transmitted to the drivetrain. Happened in the Endy 3.2 as well.

Re: 2021 Toyota Fortuner Legender & Facelift Review

Completed 1500 Kms on my 4X4 AT.

Wanted to confirm if this is normal, the idling goes to 650 RPM while AC is switched off.

This happens 50% of the time when the vehicle is idling. Otherwise, it stays at 850 RPM.

Is this normal? It never happened in my Crysta 2.4 BS-4.

This is correct. Idling speed of Crysta BS4 is higher and insulation is significantly poorer. If there is no load, Fortuner 2021 onwards, engine idles at around 680RPM.

Re: 2021 Toyota Fortuner Legender & Facelift Review

In my recent drive, I found the ride quality very sensitive to air tyre pressure. The car has done just about 1800 Kms on ODO.

Even after keeping 29 PSI in all tyres, the ride is quite bumpy and there is constant movement particularly on concrete roads.

Should I take the pressure further down? Say 28 PSI front and 27 PSI rear?

For best possible ride quality, what should be the ideal tyre pressure?

This is how a Fortuner rides On a serious note, this is typical of most BoF vehicles - ride is never settled. For reasons best known to Toyota, the busy-ride trait is further accentuated in case of the Fortuner, especially at lower speeds. It is rock steady at higher speeds, though.

Do not go below the recommended pressure of 29 PSI. I usually run on 30 PSI or 31 PSI all-round, but that is because I like a firm ride and have got used to the Fortuner's ride over the last 2 years or so. Also, the suspension "settles" over the first 10,000 km (and so do the passengers ), so give it some time.
