toyota updates fortuner for 2023

Knowing the fierce competition in the mid-sized SUV segment, Toyota has decided to give its Fortuner a nip-and-tuck for the 2023 model year.

First unveiled for the Thai market, the 2023 Fortuner drops the approach of offering two different facias for its entry-level and top-trim models. Instead, the Legender (Philippine market LTD) face is now standard even on the entry-level model. In Thailand, it also gains a new variant name: Fortuner Leader.

The Fortuner Leader 2.4 G and Fortuner 2.4 V gets features that used to be exclusive to the Legender/LTD such as the LED headlights, unique grille, bumpers, and two-tone 18-inch wheels. Inside, it also adds an auto-dimming rear view mirror, dual climate control, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, a powered driver’s seat, and leather upholstery.

The safety system has also been upgraded thanks to the addition of blind spot indicators with rear cross traffic alert, stability control, traction control, and hill start assist.

Meanwhile, the Legender/LTD continues unchanged for 2023. This variant, along with the sportier GR Sport gets a unique headlight treatment, sequential turn signal indicators, and 20-inch alloy wheels. Inside, it has a 9-inch infotainment touchscreen, wireless charging, and ambient interior lighting. It also adds the rest of the Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) system adding pre-collision braking, lane departure alert, and adaptive cruise control to its list of safety features.

Still no word at this point if Toyota Indonesia (where the Philippines sources its Fortuner SUVs) will follow suit, but at this point, it’s very likely. Expect it to make an appearance likely towards the end of the year, or early next year if ever.
