CHINESE brand Foton launched its Tunland ute range locally in late 2012 with plans to take the sales fight to more established budget utes such as the Ssangyong Actyon Sports and Great Wall V200.

Available in two- and all-wheel drive with two specifications – Quality and Luxury - the Tunland had larger dimensions than the market-leading Toyota HiLux, but had a lower ground clearance.

At launch, all Tunlands came with five seats, and were powered by a Cummins 2.8-litre turbo-diesel engine, and matched to a five-speed Getrag manual gearbox.

ANCAP crash tested the Tunland in early 2013 and it came away with a disappointing three-star rating.
