This Fortuner’s camouflage covers up all the important details, but zoom into the sides and you’ll spot red brake calipers – items usually reserved for sportier models. Whether or not these red brake calipers offer better stopping performance is yet to be seen.

As with other Toyota GR-Sport-branded models, the Fortuner GR-Sport is expected to feature a number of variant-specific enhancements, such as bodykit, wheels, and even paint job. The GR-Sport theme also continues inside, as it should receive stuff like red accents and GR-Sport emblems.

Considering that GR-Sport models sit one rung below the full-blown GR models, powertrain options should remain unchanged. In Malaysia, the updated Fortuner can be had with three powertrain options, with the most powerful 2.8-litre turbodiesel unit outputting 204 PS and 500 Nm

In Malaysia, prices of the Toyota Fortuner facelift range from RM 167,357 to RM 203,183.
