The Foton Tornado M5.2C Cargo 17ft is a light-duty truck that the brand offers for its Philippine customers. It comes in the form of a 6-wheeler (4x2) model that has a long 3,800 mm wheelbase allowing it to accommodate a 17ft long rear body. This allows it to be a flexible option for those who need to transport cargo over short distances or for long-haul trips.
As a cargo-oriented model, it has a 5,200 kg payload capacity which makes it ideal for the transportation of goods. With its versatile platform, it can be equipped with multiple rear body options such as a dropside, Aluminum F-Van, MPV, or a dropside with a telescopic crane. Other rear body options are available for the truck and can be customized depending on the needs of the customer. Other standard features for the Tornado M5.2C include central control locks, air-conditioning, power windows, and an AM/FM radio with a CD player plus MP3.
Powering the Tornado M5.2C is a 3.8-liter Cummins turbocharged diesel engine that produces 154 hp 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.
Offering a wide and low bed for those looking to transport cargo is the Foton Tornado M5.2C with its dropside variant. The low sidings make it easier to load and unload cargo as well as act as tie-downs for larger goods that need to be secured in place. This is an ideal model for those who need a variant of the light-duty truck that comes with flexible hauling capabilities.
If a more secure cargo area is what you are after, the Foton Tornado M5.2C in its F-Van Aluminum van variant is here to answer that call. It comes with a sturdy aluminum structure that can support the weight of the cargo at the back and at the sides along with a plywood floor that can resist the daily wear and tear that constant loading and unloading can cause. The aluminum body also helps protect the goods inside from the elements that otherwise might damage the cargo in an open bed.
The dropside with crane variant of the Foton Tornado M5.2C offers interested buyers the versatility of a wide and low bed with the added bonus of self-loader. This allows this cargo-oriented model to load and carry larger cargo without the need for another machine to do the heavy lifting. This makes the dropside and crane variant ideal for those in the transportation industry that handles more specialized goods that can’t normally be loaded by hand and if no other machines are available to assist.
