Our old little car we fondly call "Minitron" is gonna be five years old soon. That means it's high time to say goodbye to him and welcome a new baby. But I don't think it will be just some "baby" that I'll be looking for considering how bad flooding has become in Metro Manila of late. Oh, the horrors of having to brave the streets inundated by heavy rainfall, where you're never sure if your car's gonna stall!
Now how about a badass "baby" like the Foton Thunder pictured here:
Yeah, there's nothing more tough-looking than a pickup. However shallow that reason sounds for trading your old car, looks say a lot. Apart from the usual comforts of power steering, locks, windows, and mirrors, the Foton Thunder has enough height and power to get you through most of the Metro's flooded areas. With a five-gear manual transmission, you're assured of full control as you breeze ahead a lane of sedans.
While a 4X2 may already be enough, the 4X4 option isn't such a burden either at just a little over Php 1.1 million (the 4X2 sells for under Php 900k), especially when compared to similar models from other brands.
