The Foton Tunland pickup truck underwent a light restyling: directly from the previous model, the Tunland F9 inherited only the hard-drive all-wheel drive, cab frame and cargo platform.

As the press service of the brand said, the model received a reinforced frame, as well as a suspension that was retuned with a slant for comfort, although the scheme was the same: a spring double-lever in the front and a continuous axle on the springs at the rear. The wheelbase has grown by a symbolic 5 mm: up to 3110 mm for the standard version and 3140 mm for the “stretched” one. The length of the cargo compartment is 1520 and 1805 mm, respectively.

It is reported that the pickup Foton Tunland F9 will be offered in two versions. The basic modification will receive a mesh grille with the company logo and 16-inch wheels, and the more expensive one will have a large brand name in the front, 18-inch wheels, as well as LED DRLs and low beam sections.

Also, major changes have occurred in the interior. The novelty has acquired a multimedia system with a touchscreen with a diagonal of 10.25 inches and a rotating transmission control washer instead of the previous buttons. And the expensive versions include leather trim, electric front seats and an all-round camera.

The engine range has been revised. So, under the hood of the Foton Tunland F9 there will be a 2.0-liter gasoline turbo engine with a capacity of 238 hp. and a turbodiesel of the same volume, but with a return of 163 hp So far, only a 6-speed manual transmission has been proposed, but later an automatic will also appear.
