It seems that Toyota Indus has been quite busy in this year. First the upgrades rolled out on the ‘Corolla’ range and now a recently announced upgraded 2016 Toyota Fortuner’ being tested on the roads of Pakistan. This new face-lifted Fortuner was announced earlier this year in May by the Toyota International in Thailand.

This newer version is a lot sleeker and looks agile than previous model. It is worth mentioning that this newer version will be equipped with quite a lot of goodies. First and foremost is that this model is to be based on the Toyota’s new IMV platform which stands for the “Innovative International Multi-Purpose Vehicle”, and the diesel engines will be from the Toyota’s new GD series while the petrol engine will remain the same; 2.7VVTi four cylinders engine. Furthermore, the company has prioritized the safety of the potential customers rather upping the power capacity of the vehicle. Apparently, Toyota has developed FIRM (Frame with Integrated Rigidity Mechanism) to maintain the better ride quality of the SUV on all terrains.

We all make mistakes in life but I believe in learning from them and that is why I have opted to become an auto-journalist. I have a tech background but I prefer to write and express my views on cars because I am petrol head.

    I don’t understand why they would want to use the Revo name. For one, now the name is becoming longer and longer e.g. Toyota Hilux Vigo Champ. Another reason is that unless people have short-term memory, Revo is associated with Adam Revo, a low build quality, ugly local affair which was an extreme technical failure and market failure as well.
