Foton Goes Small with Gratour Midi Trucks
Foton Philippines is taking aim at the recently launched Suzuki Super Carry with the introduction of multiple body options for its Gratour. The Gratour Midi Truck range, as it is called, offers more power, better payload capacity, and cleaner emissions than its Suzuki counterpart.
Powered by a 1.2-liter G03 engine, Foton’s Gratour Midi Truck range offers 62 percent more horsepower (85 versus 32) and 33 percent more torque (112 Nm versus 75 Nm) than the Super Carry. Mated to a 5-speed manual, the Gratour’s Euro 5 engine brings up the maximum payload capacity to 1.2 tons (the Super Carry makes do with just 735 kilograms). Both have the same bed length of 7 feet or roughly 2,100 millimeters.
Set to be formally unveiled at The Manila International Auto Show at the end of this month, the Gratour Midi Trucks are now available at selected Foton dealerships nationwide. The Gratour Midi Dropside retails for P 475,000 while the Gratour Midi Wing Van goes for P 535,000.
The Gratour Midi Trucks are also available with other body configurations such as Patrol Jeep, Jeepney, and of course, the MPV variant.
