General Foton 45.110 Truck key features and reviews for Uganda

So, let’s now look at some the main features of this magnificent Foton 45.110 Truck so that you can make a well thought and researched choice.

Loaded with power
The 45.110 is powered by the iconic Cummins ISF 2.8 litre turbo diesel intercooled engine that produces 120kw @ 3,600rpm and a flat torque curve of 360Nm from 1,800rpm to 3,000rpm.
