Foton is a brand from Beijing Auto Industry Corporation (BAIC). The Foton Tunland is a completely new designed truck which will hit the market in early 2012. The Tunland, Toyota Tundra?, is powered by a 2.8 liter turbo diesel with 130hp and 360nm, the engine comes from Cummins.

Diesel-power also means the Tunland can not be sold in any of China’s big cities on the East Coast since diesel-powered cars are completely forbidden there out of fear for air pollution.

To put that into perspective: China has 1.4 billion people, around 300 million live in mentioned cities on the east coast. The rest of the country would love to have a strong ‘n cheap diesel-powered pick up truck. What the Tunland will cost we do not yet know, but is it very unlikely the price will go much higher than 170.000 yuan.
