Foton Philippines Refreshes the Traveller XL With More Safety Features But Retains Its Price


While its trucks are known to be dependable, Foton Philippines has also built a stellar reputation around its formidable passenger van line-up. Case in point is the Traveller XL—their larger than life MPV that seats not 11, not 15, but 19 people. And now, it’s been refreshed with added safety features for the same price.

Thanks to its stretched wheelbase and higher roofline, the Traveller XL can accommodate 19 people in a 3+3+3+3+3+4 layout, most with individual, adjustable headrests. The refreshed cabin now offers a 2-DIN touchscreen audio system with AM/FM tuner, MP3/MP4 video capability, USB, Aux, SD Card, and Bluetooth connectivity. This is on top of the dual air conditioning system with ceiling-mounted vents scattered throughout the body.


Power remains courtesy of a 2.8-liter Cummins CRDi engine putting out 148 horsepower and 325 Nm of torque—commendable numbers given you will need to haul up to 4,035 kilograms (maximum gross vehicle weight). The sole transmission remains a 5-speed manual.

The best news for the refreshed Traveller XL though is the added safety equipment. Now equipped as standard are dual SRS airbags, ABS with EBD, and stability control. Moreover, seatbelt minders and a 4-probe reverse sensor with parking camera complete the package. The best part? These safety features don’t change the Traveller XL’s SRP: it remains at an affordable P 1.645-million.


For those considering what’s essentially a minibus, Foton Philippines is currently offering the Traveller XL with a P 98,000 all-in downpayment or P 16,906 low monthly amortization as part of their Fun Christmas Holideals Promo. The deal runs until December 31, 2019.
