Simran Rastogi Updated: 2021-01-06 11:13:21 IST

Easily one of the most anticipated launches in the full-size SUV segment, the launch of the 2021 Toyota Fortuner facelift is finally upon us, after delays caused due to the pandemic. We have seen the updated Fortuner internationally before, and expect to see a similarly spruced up SUV here, one that packs cosmetic updates, as well as a bump in power from the 2.8-litre diesel apart from minor tweaks elsewhere, while the 2.7-litre petrol continues unchanged mechanically. The Fortuner facelift will also likely pack in an upgraded infotainment system with connected tech, as well as a tweaked features list. The top-spec Legender is also likely to be launched alongside the Fortuner facelift, which will carry all the same interior and powertrain updates, but in a sharper looking skin. Stay tuned for the updates right from the launch event, on engine specifications, features, styling updates and the price announcement.
