The next generation models of the Toyota Fortuner and Innova will feature an all-new line up of “GD” turbo-diesel engines. Unveiled at the 2015 Vienna Motor Symposium, the new engines will replace the outgoing KD engines found in the current Hilux, Innova and Fortuner models.
Available in two sizes – 2.4 litres (2GD-FTV) and 2.8 litres (1GD-FTV), the new “Economy with Superior Thermal Efficient Combustion (ESTEC)” engines will replace the 2.5 litre 2KD-FTV, which does duty in the Innova in India, and the 3.0 litre 1KD-FTV respectively.
While the larger 2.8 litre engine produces 177 horsepower and 450 Nm of torque, the smaller 2.4 litre engine makes do with 160 horsepower and 400 Nm of torque. Both will feature common rail diesel injection, a variable geometry turbocharger, and will be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.
Other than the new Hilux, Innova and Fortuner, the new “GD” engines will find their way under the hood of the Toyota Landcruiser Prado as well.
