Ah, new cars. There are a number of things we like about it: the scent (who here doesn’t know what amoy bagong kotse is?), the way our butts slide on the leather upholstery, the smooth surface of the virgin interiors, the growl it gives the first time you step on the gas pedal. We got to experience all that again with Toyota’s new models of the Fortuner and the Hilux.
Already frontrunners in their respective classes, the Fortuner and Hilux just got a bit more snazzier, and are now also equipped with advanced Variable Nozzle Turbocharger (VNT) Technology with intercooler and interior entertainment improvements… Don’t worry; it doesn’t make you less of a man if you don’t understand these terms. We also don’t know what the hell it means either—which is why we decided to cozy up to the Toyota peeps to fully understand what crazy upgrades they have given both cars. We share our passed-on knowledge through the gallery below!
