Gets custom bodykit, suspension system from Toyota Racing Development

The all-new Toyota Fortuner gets even more aggressive after the automaker displayed an accessorized variant of the PPV. The new Fortuner, displayed at PIMS, carries a full TRD kit: one very different from the TRD Sportivo kit offered in Thailand.

Immediately seen up front of the Fortuner is a matte black grill with TRD badging. All the chrome accents are finished in matte black. Also present are the new chin spoiler and a TRD skidplate finished in red.

Turning towards the side, the Fortuner gets a new set of 18-inch black alloy wheels, along with TRD decals and stepboards for easier ingress / egress. With a keen eye, one can also see that the Fortuner gets an increased ride height thanks to a bespoke TRD suspension kit.
