Why the 2016 Toyota Fortuner is the car for you | Phil Gilbert Toyota
Combine the comfort of a powerful and reliable vehicle and your love for adventure with the new 2016 Toyota Fortuner available at Phil Gilbert Toyota today. Here are some tips on why the 2016 Toyota Fortuner is the perfect car for you.
Whether it’s the new engine, the interior features or the exterior features, the 2016 Toyota Fortuner keeps the surprises coming. Toyota’s new direct-injected ‘1GD’ 2.8 litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine has enough power and torque to handle anything you can throw at it. And with the choice of an all-new 6 speed auto gearbox, or a 6 speed manual it will take you wherever you want to go.
The Fortuner is sold at Phil Gilbert Toyota in three model grades, the GX, the GXL, and the Crusade. As versatile of a vehicle as any, the 2016 Toyota Fortuner has a 3 tonne braked towing capacity for the manual and 2.8 tonnes for the automatic. Furthermore the safety features include seven airbags, a reversing camera, hill-start assist, an emergency stop signal, and a five star ANCAP safety rating.
The interior features include the 4.2” Multi Information Display, fifteen storage spaces, rear sensors, and even an air conditioned Cooler Box to keep your refreshments cold on a trip with your loved ones.
At a favourable price
The starting price for the new 2016 Toyota Fortuner comes at a reasonable $47,990. As a seven seat, turbo diesel SUV, Toyota has positioned the Fortuner favorably between the Toyota Kluger and the Prado to sweep its market and the competition.
The 2016 Ford Everest for example, has a starting price of $54,990, while the 2015 Mitsubishi Challenger LS starts at $49,990.
“Fortuner is the turbo-diesel alternative to the similar-sized petrol-only Kluger. It offers an affordable choice for those who aspire to own a Landcruiser,” said Tony Cramb, Toyota Australia’s executive director of sales and marketing. “[It’s] an alternative to Kluger if you want diesel, towing capacity and off-road capability,” Toyota product spokesman Michael Elias said.
Designed by Australians, for Australians
To overcome the harsh Australian environment and conditions, Toyota added the help of local engineers at the Toyota Technical Centre Australia (TTC- AU) to build the 2016 Toyota Fortuner and the HiLux series.
An affiliate company of Toyota Motor Corporation, the Toyota Technical Centre Australia based in Melbourne developed the upper body, suspension and wiring harness, and the off-road electronic support systems of the 2016 Toyota Fortuner, as well as the touch-sensitive powered tailgate and impact absorbing bumpers.
“(The new Fortuner is) packed with Aussie ingenuity and know-how, it is the ‘most-Australian car’ Toyota has ever imported into this country,” Mr Cramb said.
For Australian families looking for a new adventure on their next trip, the 2016 Toyota Fortuner has the flexibility and toughness to ride on the highway or straight through rugged terrains and creeks.
