Make sure the fresh air inlet is open (plus fan on) when traveling on gravel.

Fortuner 2.8 GD6 AT 4x4 2019 With Power Boot door, and plenty of dust

Did 7500km in Namibia and the Richters Veld. The dust ingress and accumulation in the vehicle was horrendous.
Called in at Toyota Swakopmund and was told they often replace the boot rubber seals as many Fortuner owners are unhappy. Swakopmund said try fresh air setting.
I have tried Recycle and fresh air settings while on the journey, it made no difference as the dust still came in.
Market Toyota CT have never encountered this problem. They said they cannot test the seal as there is no dirt road nearby (Really!) Also recycle was the only option.
Now awaiting Toyota SA for comment.
Hope they don't say it is a design feature.

Will be looking for a panel shop that has test instruments to determine whether rubber seals are functioning or leaking.

Toyota asked me to bring the Fortuner in.
They found a rubber grommet in the bodywork near the left back wheel that had been dislodged. This would account for the dust entering the cabin at the rear.

In addition they reprogrammed :

the aircon intake to default to fresh air and not recycle
the keyless entry system to unlock all doors including the boot from the driver's door.

Lets test and see
