Foton rocks Granite
Foton South Africa has developed a special edition of its 4×2 Tunland Luxury double-cab bakkie … it has been fitted with black accessories that change the exterior appearance significantly. Colour options are white and silver and it’s known, fittingly, as Granite.
The changes include black 16-inch Hazzard alloy wheels fitted with Cooper all-terrain tyres. Then there is a black roll-over bar and black nudge bar, as well as a distinctive black finish on the grille and wheel arches.
The interior is individualised with “Granite” stitched into the covers of the front head restraints. The Granite nomenclature also appears on the bottom of the front doors and boldly on the tailgate. Furthermore, the Granite also boasts leather upholstery and Bluetooth connectivity.
“We believe that Granite is an excellent name for this special edition, as this bakkie measures up to the tough, rugged and alluring nature of this very hard rock,” comments Mike Scarth, GM Foton SA, who is responsible for marketing Foton light commercials in South Africa.
Up front is the same Euro-4 Cummins ISF engine that develops 120 kW of power and 360 Nm of torque. Importantly, it is priced at R329 995. Backed by Imperial Holdings, it is covered by a five-year/150 000 km warranty.
