Talk of SUVs and the Toyota Fortuner pops to mind. Such is the success and presence of this SUV in India that it has become synonymous with the word SUV. Lately, it has also become quite a rage with modifiers. Many examples of beautifully modded Fortuners have come up across the countries and some even have been tuned into pure off road beasts.
We also have brought you many examples of the modified SUV in past. However, today we bring you quite a different example which claims to be one of its kind in India. Take a look and see if it matches the claim. This one is called the Yellow Ghost
This Toyota Fortuner has been done in a unique Sicilian yellow shade which looks very good. The four wheel drive SUV is built to conquer all types of terrain while keeping its occupants in utmost comfort. The whole car has been wrapped with a glossy tone paint finish rather than matte, and it looks rather nice. On the front, all the chrome bits have been replaced by blacked out panels along with big Fortuner branding on the bonnet in Land Rover style. The roof panel has been blacked out which creates a rather interesting contrast.
The grille has also been replaced with a better looking unit. A red TRD logo adorns the grille on the bottom left corner. The sides get black rub strips with Fortuner embossed on them. The door handles too are done in black to go with the overall look. The car now rides on a newer set of tires though the Apart from this, the SUV has been kept mostly stock. Other off road stuff like snorkel etc have not been added and the final product looks very clean.
The Toyota Fortuner is one big SUV and is equally powerful. The big burly SUV gets powered by a 2.7 litre petrol and 2.8 litre diesel engines, which also do the duty on the Toyota Innova. The 2.7 litre petrol engine produces 164 Bhp of power along with 245 Nm of torque.
The 2.8 litre Diesel engine, on the other hand, produces 174 Bhp of power along with 420 Nm of Torque. Both the engines come mated to either a 6 speed manual transmission or a 6 speed automatic transmission. It faces the Ford Endeavour and the recently launched Mahindra Alturas G4 as its main rivals. However, it always sells much more than any of its competitor up till now.
Over the top modification has become a rage these days, especially in SUVs. The design sometimes becomes so busy that it is hard to keep count of what all mods have been done on the vehicle. While modifying a vehicle is a good step, always make sure that you don’t go by the popular trend but instead personalize the vehicle as per your taste.
