1st Generation Toyota Fortuner
2004 (2005 in South Africa) – 2015

The first generation Toyota Fortuner was revealed to the public at the end of 2004 during the annual Thailand International Motor Expo. It was released for sale shortly afterwards in early 2005 and was an instant hit. So much so in fact that the unexpected demand for the vehicle saw Toyota decide to launch it in almost all of its growing overseas markets including Argentina, Brazil, Brunei, Colombia, Ecuador, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Jamaica, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Pakistan, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Singapore, South Africa, Venezuela and Vietnam.

Within 4 years Toyota released an updated model of the Fortuner which included even more safety and comfort upgrades in 2009. This was followed in 2011 by another Fortuner Facelift, which also saw the introduction of a 2.5 litre diesel engine. In 2013, the first-generation Fortuner received its final upgrades before the launch of second-generation. This included the introduction of a black leather interior, a new sound and entertainment system and an upgraded navigation system in top of the range models.

Did You Know? In 2012, the 2.5 Litre Turbodiesel Engine which is used to power certain of the first-generation Fortuner range was upgraded with a variable nozzle (VNT) turbocharger. This took what was essentially an already powerful vehicle and turned it into a beast. It increased the power and torque of the engine by about 60% when compared to the initial launch version of the Fortuner, while reducing fuel consumption by up to an impressive 30%. Furthermore these engine improvements made it exceptionally fast, with acceleration times of 0–100 km/h in about 11 seconds being the norm. This was even more impressive when mated to the larger 3.0 Litre engine which offered 0–100 km/h of less than 10 seconds.
