The Toyota Fortuner is another model that gets a revised price list in Malaysia, effective from March 1, 2022. The SUV was updated last November and at the time, we were provided with on-the-road pricing without insurance but inclusive of sales tax.
The new prices for the locally-assembled (CKD) SUV continue to factor in sales tax and are noticeably higher than before. Starting with the diesel-powered variants, the 2.4 AT 4×4 now goes for RM179,880, which is RM10,713 higher than before. The same can also be said of the 2.8 VRZ AT 4×4, which retails at RM220,880, or RM13,327 more than previously.
As for the sole petrol-powered offering – the 2.7 SRZ AT 4×4, it is now priced at RM186,880, making it RM10,511 costlier than in the past. All variants continue to come with a five-year, unlimited-mileage warranty and they retain the same specifications as per the November 2021 update.
