(UAAGI) and FMPI President Erroll Dueñas said, “The all-new Thunder 2.0 exhibits nothing less than a durable unit to drive you at the convenience of modern car-like features combined with an efficient powertrain and masculine sporty style. We are proud to say that with help of Filipino skills, craftsmanship, and competence this new durable vehicle has taken shape.”

    The all-new Thunder 2.0 is proudly built by Filipinos for Filipinos, just like the rest of the Foton vehicle lineup, and is driven by full devotion to strengthening national mobility. It is powered by a powerful yet fuel-efficient third-generation 2.0-liter diesel engine designed and built by Foton Motors. It can carry up to one ton of rated payload capacity with a maximum power output of 160hp at 4,000rpm and torque of 390Nm.

    The Thunder 2.0 also comes with roll-bars, cargo hooks for uncomplicated cargo mounting, huge tail lamps, LED DRL fog lamps, and a wide sporty grille carrying that rugged Foton style. It also features a  game-changing blend of high-strength steel and a lightweight, energy-absorbing design.

    The Thunder 2.0's spacious interior features a six-way power-adjustable driver seat with a premium leather seat cover, a 10.25-inch floating LCD touchscreen for infotainment, a six-inch digital LCD instrument panel that displays essential vehicle conditions, and an interior lamp that changes color based on the occupants' mood.

    Thunder 2.0 occupants can also enjoy advanced comfort and convenience features starting with its car-like functions, such as the engine start/stop button, intelligent key feature with Passive Keyless Entry, Passive Start (PEPS), and Car Finder button. They can literally keep their cool on the road even when they are not touching the buttons, since the Thunder 2.0's automatic climate control can regulate the temperature on its own as needed.

    Safety is always the first among Foton's top priorities, as exemplified by the all-new Thunder 2.0's undoubtedly robust unit. The Thunder 2.0 comes with Bosch's latest electronic stability program (ESP) and antilock braking system (ABS). It is also equipped with six airbags, including front, side, and side curtain airbags.

    Every purchase of Thunder 2.0 comes with a three-year or 100,000-km warranty as part of Foton's Aftersales Program. This is accompanied with FMPI's comprehensive customer support program, which includes EC Mobile Truck's first-in-industry on-site service.
