This is probably old news for Toyota fanboys, but for those who don’t know, Al Futtaim Motors in the UAE is offering a TRD kit for the 2014-2015 Toyota Fortuner, and this is the first time we got a close look at it, when we were dropping off our Toyota FJ Cruiser at the dealer service centre.
We’ve seen kits on older Fortuners before, but it seems this version, officially dubbed the Toyota Fortuner TRD Sportivo, is being offered as a complete model, with an original TRD kit, rear spoiler, LED running lights, leatherette upholstery and a rear-seat entertainment system, all dealer-installed. There are no mechanical upgrades.
Available with either the 2.7-litre or the 4.0-litre engine, the TRD Sportivo trim adds about Dhs 12,000 to the price of a regular model. The model range has currently been trimmed down to a 2.7 EXR, 2.7 TRD Sportivo, 4.0 GXR and 4.0 TRD Sportivo.
