Until now only available in two-wheel drive configuration, the biggest change to the Fortuner line-up is the addition of a four-wheel drive 2.4 GD-6 model, solely fitted with the above mentioned self-shifter. Although Toyota has made no mention of any specification details, expect the newcomer to mirror the regular Raised Body automatic in terms of standard creature comforts, while power and torque from the 2.4-litre oil-burner will remain at 110 kW and 400 Nm.
Pricing for the 2.4 GD-6 4x4 auto starts at R506 000, R127 500 cheaper than the top spec 2.8 GD-6 4x4 auto.
Set to rival the automatic versions of the single and super cab Ford Ranger introduced last year, the aforementioned 'box now becomes optional on the Hilux 2.4 GD-6 SRX 4x4 single cab, as well as on the two-and four-wheel drive 2.8 GD-6 Raider. The Xtra Cab also receives the 'box with drive either going to the rear or all four wheels. As with the 2.8 GD-6 double cab, power and torque figures will again be rated at 130 kW and 450 Nm.
