We continue to review new products of Chinese automotive industry. Here are the first photos of new Foton Auman GTL trucks. Feature of new trucks is a massive front grille with three huge bars. In general, the truck looks pretty modern, but not very memorable. There are some technical details. So, first showed models are truck tractors BJ4189SLFKA (4x2) and BJ4259SMFKB-A (6x4). The first one is equipped with a diesel engine Weichai WP12.336E40 with an output of 336 hp, while the second - with a diesel Cummins ISM11E4 at 385 hp. Gross vehicle weight is 18 tons for biaxial model, and 25 tons for triaxial. The only thing not clear will it be an independent model, or whether it has come to replace the popular long-haul tractors Foton Auman CXT? Does someone have an answer to this question?
