The Foton truck brand, as opposed to its one tonne utilities, has arrived in Australia. The trucks have been modified for local use in terms of performance, reliability and value for money.
The range comprises two cab widths, two engines, three wheelbases and GVMs ranging from 4.5 to 8.5 tonnes and prices start at $29,990 drive away. At the heart of Foton's light trucks are the Cummins ISF3.8L and ISF2.8L engines.
Renowned for their efficiency, environmental credentials and resilience, these engines are expected to provide Foton customers with the blend of low operating costs, outstanding performance and enviable reliability.
Foton also works closely with a host of additional international partners, including some of the best-known component suppliers in the world such as ZF, Bosch and Continental.
Foton trucks are available from 22 dealer points around the country with the number of dealer points expected to grow to 30 by the end of the year.
All Foton trucks are covered by a three year 160,000km warranty and, in the unlikely event of problem, 24 hour a day seven days a week roadside assistance.
