Toyota Motor PH Adds More Features To Fortuner For 2023 (w/ Specs)


Just as Toyota Motor Philippines updated the specs of the Hilux pickup truck, they’ve done the same for the Fortuner as well.

Let’s get one thing out of the way first: if you’re hoping that the Philippines will get the LTD (aka Legender) face as standard like it did in Thailand, sorry, no such luck. In terms of styling, the G, V, and Q still get the very same face as they did before. The same goes for the LTD and the top-trim GR Sport.

So, what has changed? Well, compared to its 2021 update, that’s down to better equipment across the line. For example, bi-beam LED headlights with LED daytime running lights are now standard across the line-up, as are LED front fog lights and LED rear combination lamps. Moreover, all but the base G get 18-inch alloy wheels with 265/60R18 tires (the LTD and GR Sport alloys do get a Machine Cut finish).

Inside, all variants from the V upward now get paddle shifters, a push-start system with smart keyless entry, rear USB chargers, and a wireless device charger. Meanwhile, the Q upward adds an 8-way power adjustable driver’s seat, auto-dimming rear view mirror, blind spot monitoring with rear cross traffic alert. The Q, LTD, and GR Sport still are the only variants to get leather seating (leather/suede for the GR Sport).

Aside from the aforementioned blind spot indicators and rear cross traffic alert, more safety gear finds its way into the Fortuner. Front and rear sensors, vehicle stability control, and hill start assist are standard. Meanwhile, the V upward now adds a standard 360-degree camera. The Q, LTD, and GR Sport, on the other hand, get the Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) suite with pre-collision assist, lane departure alert, and adaptive cruise control.

Take note though that while slew of new features were added quietly, they do carry a price increase which have been effective since last September 7:
  • Fortuner 2.4 G MT – P 1,671,000
  • Fortuner 2.4 G AT – P 1,762,000
  • Fortuner 2.4 V AT – P 1,879,000
  • Fortuner 2.8 Q AT – P 2,043,000
  • Fortuner 2.8 LTD 4x2 AT – P 2,305,000
  • Fortuner 2.8 LTD 4x4 AT – P 2,465,000
  • Fortuner GR Sport 4x4 AT – P 2,514,000

  2. Sir Uly, kindly verify the price of the Fortuner V. As per their website, the price should be at P 1,879,000 and P 1,894,000 for the Platinum White Pearl Mica and Sparkling Black Pearl Crystal Shine as indicated here.

    2. All prices indicated here are the non-premium color (same with our price guide prices).

  3. Sad for the G variant, no big updates yet it is overpriced.

  4. Wala naman nabago sa G. That bi-beam seems to be already standard even with the current model. V and up lang yata nagkaron ng update.

    1. Exactly yet the G has price increase. Fortuner G is already overpriced, not worth the money. Better buy Everest Trend, Montero GLX/GLS, or Terra EL/VE.

  5. Those changes that were mentioned here were already in the Fortuners since July 2022, fyi.

    1. Might be the case for dealers, but TMP didn't disclose the changes until we noticed them on their website (they just updated them recently).

    2. Well it's a year late already sir Uly.

    3. This is different from the 2021 version (for 2022 model year):

      So, yeah...at least Toyota's making little adjustments to specs every year.
