Retailing for just P 878,000 for the 4x4 M/T variant, the Thunder surely follows the same Foton formula of affordability. But beyond the excellent price, the Foton has one new arsenal: a Cummins ISF 2.8-liter turbo-diesel engine that is rated for Euro 5 emissions standards. The new engine is rated at 148 horsepower and 360 Nm of torque with a life cycle to overhaul expected at around 500,000 kilometers.
A 4x4 variant will also be made available, but no pricing is available yet.
