Foton Thunder is the latest pick-up truck built by the brand to take on rough roads and heavy hauling with ease. This China-based brand was able to compete for head to head with its Japanese counterparts in the pick-up truck segment. What sets this model apart is its practicality, coming out with an affordable price for all its power, efficiency, and features. The Thunder displays an intimidating exterior with its muscular and rugged façade. On the front and rear are all-metal bumpers that provides not only aesthetics but functionality in all sorts of terrain. Its strong design is mated with an equally powerful 2.8-liter Cummins engine that provides the necessary power to get it out of the most difficult driving conditions. On top of these are the improved tech and safety features that Foton equipped the Thunder with, such as reverse sensors, remote control power windows, and three-point seatbelts.


The Foton Thunder was first introduced to the Philippine market at the 8th Manila International Auto Show held in 2012. Since then, it has gone through a series of upgrades on its fascia and its interiors. In 2020, Foton launched the latest Thunder variant called Ironman which comes in 4x2 and 4x4 models. The latest models of the Thunder are competitively priced at Php 1,248,000 for the 4x2 and Php 1,468,000 for the 4x4 variant.

In other markets, the Thunder is also known as the Tunland (New Zealand model shown)



The most evident upgrade Foton made on the Thunder is the functional and aesthetically gratifying all-metal front and rear bumpers accompanied by front bull bars. It is designed to withstand the toughest roads in style. Matching the grille are LED fog lamps, as well as halogen headlamps and taillights. Both variants of the Thunder ride on 16-inch alloys. The base variant is available in Ibis White, while the 4x4 variant is available in Ibis White, Passion Red, Black, Silver and, Metallic Gray.


As opposed to the strong exterior, the Foton Thunder’s interior comes simpler and more straightforward. However, because of its massive size, the cabin is expectedly spacious with appropriate legroom and headroom for passengers. The dashboard is decked in black with silver accents. Both variants come with leather upholstered seats as standard. The driver’s seat is equipped with adjustable lumbar support and headrests.
