Rumour: Toyota Fortuner Legender 4x4 coming in October

At present, the Fortuner Legender is only available with a 6-speed automatic gearbox and rear-wheel drive.

According to a media report, the Toyota Fortuner is set to receive a major update sometime in the first week of next month.

Citing dealer sources, the report states that Toyota plans to introduce the Legender 4x4 in India. Despite being the top-spec variant in the Fortuner line-up, it was only available with a 6-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive.

Besides the Legender 4x4, Toyota is likely to offer 2-zone automatic climate control as standard across the Fortuner range. It is also said that the spare alloy wheel will be replaced with a steel rim.

That said, Toyota will continue to offer the Fortuner with two engine options. These include 2.7-litre petrol that makes 164 BHP and 245 Nm and a 2.8-litre diesel that puts out 201 BHP and 420 Nm (6-speed MT) / 201 BHP and 500 Nm (6-speed AT).
