Compared to trucks, pickup trucks have a lightweight body and can carry both goods and people. A pickup truck usually has a load capacity of about one ton. The pickup truck has rear seats, which can accommodate a total of 2 to 6 people. The chassis of the pickup truck is higher than that of ordinary cars, and there are two kinds of models to choose from: two wheel drive and Four-wheel drive. It is similar to an off-road vehicle, but its body structure is simpler than an off-road vehicle. Now a small number of off-road enthusiasts have started purchasing pickup trucks.
In terms of pickup truck selection, it has two options: diesel version and gasoline version. For African road conditions, we recommend using the Foton diesel version pickup truck. The diesel version pickup truck has the advantages of high torque, strong climbing ability, cheap purchase, and low fuel consumption. But it also has flaws. The disadvantage is that it has a relatively loud noise and a slower speed.
