Car Profiles - Foton Thunder

FOTON THUNDER

While the Blizzard is relegated to fleet duties, the Thunder now aims to rival the big names in the pick-up race. One highlight is a strong Cummins diesel, which has 160hp. While it looks good, long term usage is a question mark.

The Good: Now a decent Chinese product
The Bad: Will it hold for long?

Price Range: P898,000-P1,468,000
