Toyota launched two styling packages in the Fortuner in April – the Fortuner Epic and Fortuner Epic Black, both with the company’s 2.8 litre GD-6 turbodiesel engine.
The package includes a branded nudge-bar and tow bar. The Epic Black models feature a bi-tone design with black roof, black roof rails, black side-view mirrors and unique, all-black 18-inch alloy wheels.
These high-contrast elements are exclusively combined with Glacier White paintwork on the Epic Black. Epic variants can be had in Glacier White, Chromium Silver, Graphite Grey and Avant-Garde Bronze.
Inside you receive metal scuff plates and an Epic-branded carpet set. The usual Fortuner luxuries apply here, such as the leather interior and soft-touch dashboard trim. The interior layout remains as per current, with elevated 2nd and fold-up 3rd row seating.
The announcement coincides with the removal of all manual versions of the Fortuner and also the discontinuation of the 4.0 V6 petrol model. The 2.7 VVT-I and 2.4 GD-6 models continue unchanged.
