Toyota Fortuner is one of the most popular SUV in its segment. Fortuner is a premium SUV that competes with cars like Ford Endeavour and MG Gloster in the segment. Toyota Fortuner has been in our market for over a decade and it has changed during this time frame. Earlier this year, Toyota launched the 2021 refreshed version of Fortuner in India. Along with regular Fortuner, Toyota also introduced the much more premium looking Legender version. Both these SUVs were launched in the international market last year and here we have a video where a Toyota Legender SUV has been modified with massive aftermarket alloy wheels.
The video has been uploaded by LOFT MODIFY on their YouTube channel. The video is from Thailand and just like in India, they also have an interest in vehicle modifications. We have seen several modified examples of Toyota Innova, Honda City and many other cars from Thailand on our website. This Toyota Legender in particular gets some modifications that totally elevates the look of the car.
The main attraction on this Toyota Legender are the wheels. The stock dual tone alloy wheels have been replaced for an aftermarket unit. The wheels look bigger and wider than the stock unit in size as well. The aftermarket alloys are wrapped around low profile tyres. the video does not show the exact the size of the tyres.
Apart from the new alloy wheels, the suspension on this Toyota Legender has also been upgraded. The new wheels and the suspension setup has completely enhanced the look of the SUV. Coming to the side profile, the Legender also gets an automatic side step. The step comes out whenever the door is opened and folds in as soon as the door closes. The side step is useful as the height of the Fortuner has also increased in comparison to the stock version. It looks like no other modifications have been done to the SUV apart this.
The work done on this SUV looks stunning and it resembles with some American SUVs. That is the looks that the owner of this SUV was looking for. Toyota Legender as mentioned above is a premium looking version of the regular Fortuner. In terms of design, Legender gets different looking front end. It gets a sleeker looking headlamps with LED DRLs in it. The front grille is a split unit and all the chrome elements that are normally seen on Fortuner are all blacked out. In India, the Legender version is available with a diesel engine with 2WD only. The engine is mated to an automatic transmission. In international markets however, the SUV gets 4×4 versions as well.
Toyota offers Fortuner with a 2.7 litre petrol engine and a 2.8 litre diesel engine. The diesel engine 205 Ps and 500 Nm of peak torque and the petrol engine generates 164 Ps and 245 Nm of torque. Both petrol and diesel engine options are available with manual and automatic gearbox option. Only the diesel version of Toyota Fortuner is available with 4×4 in India.
