Fortuner TRD edition featured a slew of cosmetic updates including a new sporty looking front main grille featuring black garnish, redesigned bumpers, and TRD logos. In addition to this, the model also featured black alloy wheels along with a blacked-out roof to give a more intimidating and sporty appeal to the exteriors.

On the inside, the limited-spec model featured an all-black interior colour scheme along with exclusive features including auto-folding ORVMs, illuminated scuff plates, and a 360-degree camera. It also came with a technology pack featuring a tyre pressure monitor, wireless smartphone charger for rear passenger, head-up display, digital video recorder (DVR), an air ionizer, and a welcome door lamp at an additional cost.

Under the hood, it was plonked with the familiar 177PS 2.8-litre diesel engine with a 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission.

Save for the jazzier exteriors TRD had nothing exceptional to offer and it appealed to the customers who demanded a more unique-looking model. Needless to say, the TRD wasn't exactly a pure value-for-money proposition. Now the company is planning to introduce the updated model in the country which is expected to receive a slew of new features and a more powerful engine.

The facelifted Fortuner may hit the showrooms sometime around early-2021 and may cost around 30 lakh (ex-showroom).
