Toyota discontinues the limited edition 2020 Toyota Fortuner TRD, which was available with the diesel automatic models of the Fortuner.
Introduced in August of 2020, the limited edition TRD variants of the Toyota Fortuner have been discontinued. Usually, OEMs introduce limited edition or special edition variants of cars and bikes to reinvigorate public interest in existing models and increase their value proposition. Toyota has been adding and removing TRD variants for the Fortuner since the previous generation model to spruce up its appeal and offer some additional features. To this account, the latest version of the Fortuner TRD offered restyled bumpers, dual-tone ORVM casings, a black roof, and different black alloy wheels. Inside, it featured a heads up display, a tyre pressure monitoring system, a 360-degree parking camera, a digital video recorder, an auto-folding ORVMs, a wireless smartphone, an illuminated scuffle plate, and an air ionizer.
The Toyota Fortuner TRD was offered in two variants for the diesel model – 4x2 AT and 4x4 AT, with prices being pegged at Rs Rs 34.98 lakh and Rs. 36.88 lakh (ex-showroom), respectively.
Once a manufacturer feels that limited/special edition variants have lived out their life span in terms of engaging customers, they discontinue them at their convenience. That's pretty much the story of the 2020 Toyota Fortuner TRD limited edition.
As of now, Toyota sells six variants of the Fortuner – two petrol variants and four diesel variants, with prices ranging between Rs 28.66 lakh for the 4x2 manual petrol model and Rs 34.43 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the 4x4 diesel automatic model.
