It has a strong power output of 117 hp at 3,200 rpm and maximum torque of 260 Nm at 3200 rpm. The F-Jeepney F24 takes comfort to new heights with its cushioned seats and air-conditioning system.
FOTON F-Jeepney series also offers a variant that is lighter and more agile version of its robust counterparts. The 11-seater FOTON F-Jeepney F11 presents a smooth drive in tight city streets with its lightweight and aerodynamic design. Don’t let a measly 2.2-liter diesel engine fool you. A power of 87 hp at 3,200 rpm and maximum torque of 220 Nm at 2,220 rpm makes it as dependable as ever.
