My FOTON Big Show 2013 experience!

Last October 25, I dropped by the World Trade Center to check out the FOTON Big Show 2013. I drive almost every single day and so a large portion of my life and time is actually spent behind the wheel, lol!

This Foton Thunder Pick Up immediately caught my eye.

This one is all dressed up and ready to go with the bull bar and fog lamps.

It’s pretty big!

The driver’s cabin is spacious too.

This is how the radio and air-conditioning controls are laid out. All Foton vehicles are manual transmission hence the numbered shift stick.

We decided to take out the Foton Thunder 4×2 Pick Up for a test drive. Although I learned to drive using manual transmission, I haven’t driven a manual car in almost 20 years… lol. I’m pretty confident that I can still do it though, but for that day someone from Foton offered to drive us mommies.

So we went for a drive using the Foton Thunder 4×2 Pick Up. The first thing I noticed was how cold the aircon was. It was a sunny day but wow, the air was biting cold so we drove in comfort. It was quiet too, despite the fact that it’s a diesel engine. The ride was smooth all throughout. It was definitely a pleasant experience.

We mommies (Michelle “mymomfriday”, myself, and Tin “CD MFO”) had fun test-driving the totally macho Foton Thunder 4 x 2 Pick Up! A big thank you to mymomfriday for this photo!

She gave a brief testimonial of how she had used Foton vehicles during her campaign.

But the highlight of the FOTON Big Show 2013 was the unveiling of FOTON’s new luxury van, the FOTON View Traveller.

Just as the name suggests, the FOTON View Traveller is perfect for travelling — a good alternative to tour buses since it can comfortably seat 15 people.

It looks snazzy too.

Like the FOTON Thunder 4×2 Pick Up we road-tested, the driver’s cabin is spacious.

You can actually turn the chairs around in the passenger cabin to your desired orientation. The big wide windows will give everyone inside a good view of the surroundings and so it’s really ideal for touring people around.

FOTON showcased all their latest vehicles in the show. They have a lot of vans and trucks which families and businesses can use.

Wow, I had no idea FOTON has such a wide range of vehicles in their roster.

We were even treated to a performance by FOTON’s real live dancing and jumping Wheel Loader! It was such a treat especially for kiddie attendees.

FOTON has rescue vehicles too.

FOTON vehicles use Cummins engines (Cummins happens to be the foremost engine manufacturer in the US) so you can be assured of their reliabilty.
