Yesterday I noticed an advert on Thai tv for the new Fortuner GR sport and they are offering it in red!

 

That should really get the MOG's of Thaivisa going, the combination of Fortuner and RED!

A good colour for a Fortuner considering the reputation of many of the people who drive them here ....Red means danger! Keep out of my way or else....!

I find the commercial offensive as it is promoting unsafe and aggressive driving habits:     Race Your Pride Ambition.    Nothing about safety.    

Not at all this old git likes it,  a bit slow though and still can't take corners.

It's not a Ferrari red and your D-max is just as fast. 😂

As long as you drive at speed it'll do fine.

 

Normally you mean, dunno it's still a truck. 😁

I've had my Isuzu truck for 4 years. 😁

So you don't have one. How many have you driven for more than an hour?

 

I've had four Isuzu pickups in the last twenty years.

If you install air bags in the rear you will have the best of both worlds - soft when empty and still able to carry loads when required.

Remove excess leafs in the springs, may need shorter u bolts too.

Fold up rear seats make it useless and badly in need of an update. The 20+ year old design has its limit.

Judging by the picture, the word 'Sport' presumably refers to sumo wrestling. Its hardly a racy looking lump but it does look supremely impractical for any urban use.

The seats are not 100% leather (or leather imitation) anymore, they use some sort of velour in the middle. That is going to get very dirty and wear very fast and possibly tear.  My wife was enquiring about it, but that put her off, and me. A very strange choice imho.

 

Even more so, they were going to take our 2 year old Fortuner 2.8 TRD Sport (which is on 5 year finance and I think we gave 25% deposit plus subsequent 2 yrs of payments) and give us nothing back at all. She told them politely where to go. We will either sell it privately and pay back the finance, or simply just keep it the 5 years. Probably the latter. The later models have much more modern tech, and a slightly improved engine, but still an old (but tough and reliable) design. Better to wait for the next model rather than just this facelift.

(Edit: the Fortuner is probably just over 2 yrs old)

Assuming you are talking about the Fortuner, the platform is about seven years old, not twenty. The first platform lasted about 16 years.

 

What are you driving now?

I like that red, candy sorta colour. As for the mechanics of the car it's a Toyota so tough I guess, and reliable like most Toyota's. I'd rent one if I had to on fly/drive sojourn but prefer my ride thank you.

OK, its not a 16 yr old Suzuki Swift that most TV members are driving, but it's not bad. 

What do you drive?

Had my Fortuner for 9 years now and very satisfied with the car. Should I buy a new car now it would be Fortuner again, but only 2W drive. My driving habit don’t need 4W drive.

I'll give you the 2.4 is slow but the 2.8 TRD in sports mode is rapid. If it's fitted with the 20" rims it also holds the road. Goes round corners like it's on rails. Even in the wet. Maybe you should drive one. N/B also great on fuel.
