Malaysia gets a smaller, 2.5 Litre and more fuel efficient engine, will India too get it ?

Toyota Malaysia has launched a smaller yet more fuel efficient engine for its much selling Fortuner SUV. The smaller spec. 2.5L engine will deliver little less power 143 PS with a similar torque figure of 343 N-m. However, the current generation 3.0L engine delivers a 170 PS of power.

We would not be surprised if the same is launched in a fuel conscious market like India too. Across the world, now car makers are coming up with ways to improve the fuel efficiency looking at the ever rising fuel prices in the world. All other SUV's in India come along with the smaller engine - with Santa fe having a 2.2L engine, Ford Endeavour being offered with both 2.5L and 3.0L engine, X-Trail with 2.0L engine and even the latest launched SsangYong Rexton having a 2.7 engine.

The smaller engine with a more fuel efficient engine could make it more cost competitive than other similar specd SUV's in India.
