Toyota Fortuner 2020 operation
Behind the hood is also a distinguishing Fortuner Legender with Fortuner Facelift base model. If in the usual Toyota Fortuner facelift there is only a choice of engines without spark plugs (read: diesel) 2.4L coded 2GD-FTV. So in the Toyota Fortuner Legender there is a more powerful option, namely a 1GD-FTV coded diesel engine unit with a clean cylinder capacity of 2,755 cc. Interestingly, this machine has been refined with improvements to the engine balancer, so that the goal to further reduce sound and vibration can be achieved.
Improvements were made plus a little tuning in the diesel engine. As a result, this 2.8L 4-cylinder unit can produce greater engine power and torque. Strength rose to 204 ps or about 202.5 hp (up 25.5 hp from the old model) and torque to 500 Nm (up to 50 Nm from the previous model) which has been felt since the engine speed of 1,600 rpm to 2,800 rpm. Moreover, the idle (stationary) engine speed also drops from 850 rpm to 650 rpm making the engine feel softer and helpful when crawling on off-road terrain.
Power and torque can be distributed to two types of drive. If the Fortuner Legender you choose has 2-wheel drive, it will be distributed to the two rear wheels and if you choose the 4WD version, the four wheels will be channeled by Toyota as the Sigma 4 system, and of course it will be via a conventional 6-speed automatic transmission that can be moved by sequential through the paddle shift located behind the wheel.
