Toyota Fortuner TRD Sportivo package announced

March 10, 2016

The all-conquering Toyota Fortuner has received a sporty makeover by Toyota’s TRD division, giving the off-roader more style and improved driving performance.

Toyota Fortuner TRD Sportivo

If you don’t like the look of the new Fortuner, this TRD pack might tickle your fancy. It includes black six-spoke 20-inch alloy wheels, matching black meshing in the lower front end, a black roof and pillars, and a titanium-chrome front grille.

It’s not just about enhancing the visuals either. Underneath it all is a set of uprated brakes, exhaust modifications, along with a complete TRD suspension upgrade with custom dampers and springs.

For the passengers, TRD is presenting an 11-speaker JBL stereo system, along with fake carbon trimmings, two-tone black and red leather seats, TRD dials, and red stitching in various places. It also gets the 7.0-inch touch-screen interface as featured in other variants.

No changes are mentioned about engine tuning, so we’re guessing the 2.8-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder remains at its 130kW/450Nm specification. PerformanceDrive has tested the automatic version and it clocked 0-100km/h in 12.49 seconds.

It’s unknown where this TRD pack will be launched, but given TRD is still a prominent brand in the USA it does seem the most likely market. What do you think? Would you like to see these parts offered in Australia?
