Auman GTL high-end trucks are produced by Foton Daimler Automotive Co., Ltd and meet international standards. Auman GTL/TL trucks are recommended for long-distance logistics and transportation. Trucks have a simplified-yet-modern exterior, feature an advanced safety system, and are fuel efficient and comfortable. Auman GTL/TL trucks are among Foton's most immensely popular, best-selling line of heavy-duty trucks. GTL/TL trucks are powered by Cummins ISG, Cummins ISM or Weichai engines.

GTL: Powered By Cummins
TL: Powered By Weichai Engines



Beginning in 2014, Cummins ISG series engines are made in the Foton Cummins factory. ISG engines are the result of a joint cooperation between American Cummins, Foton Cummins and Foton’s third-party partners. Engines come in 11-Liter and 12-Liter versions (350 hp to 490 hp) and emissions standards can reach Euro-VI. Below are the technical highlights of ISG-powered vehicles.

·  Light-weight modularized design reduces parts and simplifies maintenance

·  iBrake braking technology ensures safety
·  Innovative cooling and lubricating system reduces energy consumption, prolongs vehicle life
·  High-pressure fuel injection system improves power, lowers fuel consumption
·  Patented filtration makes it possible to change oil every 100,000km

·  LBSC improves work efficiency
·  Accurate remote diagnostics and advanced warning system

·  Leading emission technologies for stricter emission requirements

Auman GTL trucks are equipped with Cummins ISMe series 11-Liter engines (308-440 hp), which perform at a lower RPM and with high torque. ISM engines operate smoothly and have great climbing performance. Engines feature an electronically controlled, high-pressure fuel injection system in a single-cylinder, four-valve system. Under high-pressure, diesel fuel in the single-cylinder is precisely sprayed due to its high-performance atomizer. As a result, full fuel combustion is achieved. Engines also feature an electronically controlled silicon oil fan, which can further reduce fuel consumption by 2-3%. Completely meets Euro-III to Euro-IV emissions standards.

10-Liter to 12-Liter engines. Engine displacement is greater than that of similar products. Weichai engines are designed to meet demanding highway truck work situations, with a power output of 336-380 horsepower. Torque ranges from 1500/(1200-1500) to 1800/(1000-1400) Nm/RPM. Weichai engines feature high-pressure, electronically controlled fuel injection made specifically for large displacement engines. The engine structure is simplified and has fewer parts for lower maintenance costs. Completely meets Euro-III, or above emissions standards.

  • Safety of Driving

    Side mirrors provide a broad view with no blind spots.
    Three-point seat belts are comfortable and increase safety.

  • Fuel Efficiency

    Body is aerodynamically designed with a low coefficient of drag and has passed wind tunnel tests. The air deflector is adjustable to further reduce wind resistance.

    Large, high-flow, high-positioned lateral air intake system with filtration technologies and low resistance.
    Vehicle saves an estimated 3%-5% on fuel, compared to other similar in-class vehicles.

  • Fuel Efficiency

    Cruise control comes as standard equipment. The drivetrain components are designed to be perfectly integrated for more power and fuel economy.
    Low rolling resistance tubeless radial tires have high elasticity and low friction.

  • Comfortable

    Spacious, sedan-inspired interior, double bunk sleeper and optional level floor.
    Features 4-Corner air suspension, multi-directional and adjustable three-level shock-absorption air suspension driver’s seat and pneumatic adjustable steering wheel column. The three step-ladder and extended handrails are made for easy cabin access and also meet European safety standards.
    Features power windows, central locks and automatic cruise control.
    Air conditioning controls, pop-out cigarette lighter, ashtray, handbrake and cup holders in the interior.
    Optional APU keeps cab at a comfortable temperature even when the engine is turned off.

  • Quality of Testing

    Quality Standards: There are thirty-six inspection steps to ensure that customers get the best, high-quality vehicles.

  • Quality of Supply Chain

    Trucks feature technology from the world's leading suppliers of auto parts: including Mercedes-Benz driving axles, Cummins engines, a ZF or FAST transmissions, Knorr-Bremse brakes, WABCO brake components, Valeo clutches, ZF steering boxes and Sachs vibration dampers. All parts are top quality and the production process is based on a 100% vendor-integrated management platform.

    Integrated vehicle design has effectively reduced the number of needed parts. Additionally, maintenance and repair services have been greatly enhanced and made easier. Vehicles can be started in 7 seconds, in temperatures as low as -35 ℃ .

  • Quality of R&D

    More than 300 engineers from the Foton global R&D team worked together for over four years to develop these vehicles. The total investment was 1.7 billion RMB and the vehicle features thirteen technological patents.
    Auman TL digitized factory has a production capacity of 200,000 units per year. It has forty-six high-precision robots, with 60% of the production being automated. The factory is spread over four world-class manufacturing facilities and has eight machines that are exclusive to this factory alone.
