As for the comparison with the Hilux, this pick-up is available with rear- or all-wheel drive. Fortuner is already in the base will go along with the system of all wheel drive.
The suspension is designed as follows. Double wishbones front and rear – five-link system. Forward and rear engineers installed springs with shock absorbers. They allow for better movement in complex road and off-road sections. Brakes disc elsewhere.
