The Foton Tornado M4.2C further expands the brand’s lineup of light-duty trucks in the Philippines. It offers interested buyers a cargo-focused versatile platform that can be equipped with a 14ft rear body. With that versatility, it can be equipped as a dropside, Aluminum F-Van, MPV body, or even serve as a refrigerator van. These rear body options can also be further customized depending on the needs of the customer.
The truck comes in the form of a 6-wheeler (4x2) model that comes with a chassis that can easily accommodate a 14ft long rear body. It has a wheelbase of 3,360 mm and a payload capacity of 4,200kg. It also has a gross vehicle weight of 7,495 kg making it ideal for those who need to transport cargo and other goods. Aside from the standard rear body options, the truck can also be customized to the needs of the customer.
Powering the Tornado M4.2C is a 3.8-liter Cummins turbocharged diesel engine that produces 154hp and 500 Nm of torque. It shifts via a 6-speed manual transmission that sends power to the rear wheels. The truck rides on a non-independent suspension with a three-leaf spring configuration at the front and a non-independent suspension with a 6+7 leaf spring configuration at the back. Stopping power comes from an air brake system with drums at the front and rear of the vehicle. The light-duty truck is also equipped with ABS for extra safety.
As a cargo-oriented variant, the Dropside model of the Foton M4.2C presents itself as a great candidate for those looking to transport a wide variety of goods. Its low sides make it easy to load and unload cargo into the bed of the vehicle, while the sides can also act as anchor points for tie-downs for much larger items.
A more secure cargo-oriented model of the Foton M4.2C is its F-Van Aluminum variant. Built with a strong structure, this model can easily protect your goods from the elements and other environmental hazards. It also maximizes its cargo area allowing you to store more while keeping to the vehicle’s weight and height restrictions. This is an ideal variant to get if cargo transportation is what you are looking for in a light-duty truck.
For those looking to haul perishable goods, the Foton Tornado M4.2C is also made available with a Refrigerated van model. It comes with a 4,200kg payload capacity and features a Thermo King condenser to help keep things cool in the cargo compartment. The cooling system is available to keep the contents of the storage area between 18C to 20C making it ideal for food or medical transport. The rear body is also made of 100 mm thick glass epoxy with polyurethane plates and waterproof plywood to help insulate the cargo area. Two drain holes are also located inside the cargo hold to ensure that no water remains inside.
Those looking to get a customized build can purchase a cab and chassis model of the Foton Tornado M4.2C from the truck maker in the country. This offers them a great platform that can be easily adapted to their needs by a truck bodybuilder.
Other standard features for the Tornado M4.2C include central control locks, air-conditioning, power windows, and AM/FM radio with CD player and MP3.
