The FAW 380M10 is the biggest of the lineup of a medium-sized commercial trucks from the Chinese automaker, which is sold in multiple kinds of body styles, including tippers and mixers. The FAW 380M10 has been made available in the Philippines commercial vehicle market in a single paint shade of white, with only one variant on offer.
FAW 380M10 Interior
To cater to the lower segment of commercial trucks, the FAW 380M10 carries a cost-cutting approach, with a very simple looking cabin which has a slightly bland design and lacks a number of modern features. Even the basics like music system and air conditioner have been skipped in the interior cabin feature list, which makes it look too plain-jane from the inside.
However, when it comes to the number of storage compartments, ergonomics, and space on offer, the FAW 380M10 scores quite good, with an ample amount of room for three people in the cabin and a very finely balanced driving position. The multi-information display behind the steering wheel has a simple read-out display but is quite informative while on the go.

The garnish above the windscreen gets a cover type layout, which tucks in the front windscreen from the top.
Talking about the design of the front apron, it has a simple layout, with a wide rectangular front grille in the center. This grille gets a huge FAW logo placed in the middle and a thin silver garnish at the top. The bottom corners of the front apron have got thinner looking bottom extensions towards the front bumper.
The FAW 380M10 has got a large rectangular front bumper, which has a protruding design and features rectangular halogen headlamps on either sides. The front bumper extends marginally towards the sides in a curved manner.
The side design of the cabin of the FAW 380M10 looks wide and big for a medium-sized truck, with the width of the cabin being further enhanced by the large windows and rearview mirrors mounted on the A-pillars of the truck.

The side cladding also extends slightly over the steppers to climb up in the cabin.
