FAW 420T10 Review
FAW 420T10 Overview
Among the lineup of midsize heavy-duty trucks, the FAW 420T10 sits at the top of the Chinese commercial vehicle maker. The FAW 420T10 is pitted against the established commercial vehicles from other European and Asian players. The FAW 420T10 is being offered in a single-spec variant, with only one color option in the form of white.
FAW 420T10 Interior
Despite having additional contemporary touch on the outside as compared to other lower-positioned trucks, the FAW 420T10 feels too basic on the inside, with almost no additional equipment or comfort feature to justify its more premium positioning. The FAW 420T10 gets power steering and a driver’s seat with its height being adjustable. The cabin misses out on basic amenities like power windows, air conditioners, or music systems, which makes it too underequipped in front of the competition.
FAW 420T10 Exterior
The FAW 420T10 shares its overall design with the rest of the midsize heavy-duty trucks from the company, which however reduces its individualistic appeal to a great extent. However, given that it looks pretty much up to date with not so old school appeal is a bit of relief.
The FAW 420T10 looks almost flat from upfront, with the large rectangular windscreen covering a majority of the surface area here. The windscreen has slightly rounded edges and gets blackened plastic panels above and below it. The plastic panel below the windscreen is slightly rounded from the bottom and has mounts for three intermittent wipers for the windscreen.
The upper plastic panel, on the other hand, gets grab handles on its either corners for sustaining heavier load at the top. The extreme corner edges of the upper panel have small vertical extensions, with the upper roof at the center getting a prominent bulged portion for creating an additional headroom in the cabin.
The front fascia of the FAW 420T10 is taken care of by a rectangular front grille, which has a slim silver lining at the top of it and sports a huge FAW logon in the center of it. There are L-shaped panels on the extreme sides of the front apron, which act as subtle design elements.
The front bumper of the FAW 420T10 looks quite huge for a truck of this size. The central portion of the bumper gets a large rectangular lower grille, with the corners of the bumper getting rounded trapezoidal headlamps, which also come integrated with clear lens turn indicators.
The design of the cabin on the sides look slightly better and more modern than other trucks positioned lower than it. The slightly curvier window waistline for the large side windows add a slight visual drama, with pillar mounted exterior rearview mirrors and rounded wheel arch at the bottom. The wheel arch here gets a very slim body cladding, above which is placed a small amber-colored turn indicator.
FAW 420T10 Ride & Handling
The FAW 420T10 runs on 315/80R22.5-18PR tires, which are the broadest tires in the lineup and provide much superior grip and traction under heavy load conditions. Thanks to the feature of power steering, the FAW 420T10 feels much easier to drive and the broad tires help it in aiding superior stability at higher speeds.
FAW 420T10 Engine & Fuel Consumption
Powering the FAW 420T10 is a WP12.420E32 diesel engine, which is turbocharged as well as inter-cooled for better performance at higher RPMs. This six-cylinder diesel engine is good enough to put up 420 PS of maximum power, with the truck getting single reduction high torque axles at both front and rear.
FAW 420T10 Braking & Safety
The FAW 420T10 misses out on a number of sophisticated safety features, which are being offered in the competition trucks. It only gets a lockable passenger cabin with manual central locking as well as seat belts for three passengers.
FAW 420T10 Verdict
The very minute design revisions which the FAW 420T10 sports over other trucks from the stable of its maker, makes it a more desirable option over the latter options. However, when compared to the competition, the FAW 420T10 feels dated and underequipped. Though it manages to impress heavily with its solid mechanical underpinnings.
