        Mr. Noriaki Yamashita, President of Toyota Motor Thailand Company Limited, together with Dr. Jurachart Jongusuk and Ms. Anyarat Suthibenjakul, Regional Chief Engineers of Toyota Daihatsu Engineering and Manufacturing Company Limited, and Mr. Surasak Suthongwan, Executive Vice President of Toyota Motor Thailand Company Limited, all took an honorable part in the Toyota Fortuner GR Sport's first global debut in Thailand, as well as an introduction of the Modelista accessories kit and the 2021 enhanced edition. It is truly the automobile of pride that represents the wisdom of a leader.

Toyota Motor Thailand Company Limited has started to bring in the first generation of the luxurious multi-purpose vehicle Toyota Fortuner in 2005 under the 'IMV: Innovative International Multi-Purpose Vehicle' project. The project leads to the phenomenon that propels Toyota to become the leading Pick-Up Passenger Vehicle (PPV) manufacturer among the multi-purpose vehicles market, domestic and international.  Being well-known for its world-class standard manufacture quality, top-notched design, exceptional driving performance, and wide range of functionalities, it proudly maintains its top-of-mind status amid Thai and foreign customers with the total sales volume of more than 380,000 units* (*Fortuner's accumulated sales volume under IMV project as of 2004  - July 2021), accompanied by various quality-guarantee rewards, including JD Power Asia Pacific Award, Thailand Automotive Quality Award (TAQA Awards), and the Car of the year Award.

Toyota Fortuner GR Sport...Race your Pride Ambition

The 2021 newly enhanced Fortuner … Wisdom of a Leader

Dr. Jurachart Jongusuk, Regional Chief Engineer, said: "According to the feedback we have gathered from nationwide customers, we have implemented them in the development process of this new edition. For the 2021 newly enhanced Fortuner, we added the Panoramic View Monitor for the V series to expand the visibility to promote safety while also added the automated and independently-controlled front row AC for every model. As for the Fortuner 2.8 Legender, there are also built-in Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert to ensure confidence and safety in every journey."

        Ms. Anyarat Suthibenjakul, Regional Chief Engineer, also added: “The developmental concept of the Fortuner GR Sport originated from the sports cars competed in the World Rally Championship (WRC)—high-performance vehicles capable of going places and maneuvering on any terrain, for multi-purpose vehicles drivers who seek an excellent driving performance. With sports-car-like suspension including the new Monotube Shock Absorber that is more responsive to the driving control, it will truly be the joy of driving while maintaining comfort, which is the signature element of this series.”

Mr. Surasak Suthongwan, Executive Vice President of Toyota Motor Thailand Company Limited, further added: “Yet again, I must thank all medical workers who have been working tirelessly and determined to fight against the critical ongoing Covid-19 pandemic situation. As for the automobile industry, although we have also been affected by this challenging time, I must express my deepest gratitude to the valued customers who placed their trust in our products, especially the Fortuner Legender models that are very well-received. It has helped us to maintain the top-of-mind status amid the PPV market.  This year's newly enhanced edition has been developed to support daily life activities by uplifting the PPV's high-quality components to increase its longevity. It will be suitable for customers looking for a private car, families to drive in town, and travelers to go long-distance during their holidays.”

Fortuner, GR Sport edition

The GR Sport Fortuner is the flagship vehicle among Toyota's PPVs. With the same origin as the GR Sport Hilux Revo, it has combined the valuable experience and technical knowledge obtained from Toyota's participation in the performance test run in racing tracks around the globe under the world-class racing car brand of TOYOTA GAZOO RACING. Thus, GR Sport Fortuner has become the leading top-tier automobile in the style of TOYOTA GAZOO RACING's racing cars, unleashing the sports-car spirit in your driving experience. I firmly believe that the GR Sport Fortuner will take PPV to its next level.
