Fortunate ? to have good fortune; to be favoured by good fortune: It is from this adverb that Toyota derived the name for its latest SUV, the Fortuner. ?For us at Toyota the Fortuner fits with our objective of ?making it possible to own the SUV you?ve always wanted?,? says Kaoru Hosokawa, Executive Chief Engineer for the Fortuner. ?The name imparts an image that is strong and buoyant and one that fits easily with the global nature of the Fortuner as a member of the exciting IMV family (International Innovative Multi-purpose Vehicle), from Toyota.?
The Fortuner breaks new ground as a member of the IMV family of vehicles, an ambitious global project that has at its core the challenge of containing costs, improved global manufacturing efficiencies, and the maintenance of the highest quality standards. The end objective is an attractively priced, feature rich range of vehicles built to the highest global quality standards.
