Now a double cab All in Black

FOTON has added All Black and Chiefs loose forward Liam Messam as a new member of its team as its recently-upgraded 2017 Tunland Double Cab models, labelled T3, continue to roll off the sales lots.

Messam, who has 43 international caps, has been named by Foton as their brand ambassador. He will represent the Foton brand and feature in their marketing campaigns until February 2018.

Messam says it is exciting to be involved with Foton.

“It’s a brand on the move and I think it is only a matter of time before it really takes off here. The Tunland is a great looking ute and the Cummins diesel engine makes it a great drive. I am rapt to be chosen as an ambassador for Foton.”

Foton New Zealand CEO Roger Jory said Messam’s character on and off the field reflects qualities for which the Foton brand strives to be recognised in New Zealand.

In sporting terms Foton has momentum with the launch of its upgrade for the Tunland 4WD Double Cab which has been labelled the T3.

This is the third upgrade since the launch of the Tunland in October 2011 and has brought with it upgraded specifications, features and improved driving dynamics.

The interior styling has been given a refresh with the inclusion of the improved ICE (in-car entertainment) and Bluetooth system.

A new dual-lid centre console, selectable 2WD/4WD dial and improved steering wheel controls for ICE have been joined by an upgraded cabin interior.

The Cummins ISF 2.8 litre turbo diesel engine has been upgraded with the output increased to 130kW and 365Nm of torque.

The price of the Tunland has not changed, still retailing at $33,990 plus on-road costs.

Getting Liam Messam on board, the most capped Chiefs player in history, is intended to add to the Tunland’s image.

Look also for a new team member soon, with the prospect of a new 2WD vehicle added soon.
