At the Shanghai auto show in April this year (2021), Longteng military diesel 8at model of Foton pickup truck was officially released. Oukang 2.0T diesel engine was matched with ZF 8-speed automatic transmission, which not only provided greater adaptability for the general, but also added important highlights to the whole vehicle series.
Recently, we learned from the official Foton pickup truck that the pre-sale of Foton pickup truck diesel 8at model will be opened at the end of August. The pre-sale models are Foton general G9 and general F9. After the launch of the new car, Foton pickup truck will complete the comprehensive layout of high-end pickup truck products and realize the situation of simultaneous development of diesel and gasoline 8at.
Foton pickup truck G9 was officially launched in early 2021. The new car has three power versions, and there are many subdivided models such as armored general, field general and national protection general. Previously, the car provided three power options of 2.0T gasoline / diesel and 2.5t diesel. The transmission system was equipped with 6-speed manual transmission and ZF’s 8-speed manual automatic transmission, but 8at was only equipped on gasoline models.
Therefore, the editor speculates that Futian will add diesel 8at models on the basis of the original armored general, field general and other products, so as to improve the product series and enrich the car purchase options, while Longteng general, who appeared at the Shanghai auto show, will also be listed simultaneously and may be launched as a special model.
Compared with the general’s model code G9 currently on sale, the general F9 is a new product and has not yet been unveiled. However, previously, Futian applied for a new Yutu pickup in the Ministry of industry and information technology. The new car can be equipped with multiple rear logos. In addition to the conventional Yutu, there is also the option of senior general F9, which means that Futian has the intention to classify Yutu into the senior general series.
It is certain that Foton will adjust the existing product system in the future. The senior general will be divided into G9 and F9 series, and launch the diesel 8at model at the end of the month. Another product F7 exposed a few days ago may also be a member of the new line of the senior general. How about the specific answer? We will uncover it for you at the end of the month.
As the two high-end pickup truck models mainly promoted by Foton pickup truck, general G9 and F9 are powered by Oukang 2.0T diesel power, with a maximum power of 120kw and a peak torque of 390n·M. the transmission system is matched with ZF 8at gearbox. In the future, micro hybrid, light hybrid, full hybrid, plug-in hybrid and start stop systems can be upgraded. After the launch of the new car, the layout of Futian pickup for high-end pickup products is about to be completed, realizing the situation of simultaneous development of diesel and gasoline 8at, further improving the competitiveness of Futian pickup and enriching consumers’ car purchase choices.
