Fiat Fullback pick-up

New Fiat Fullback pick-up is launched at Dubai Motor Show

The latest addition to the Fiat Professional range is the Fiat Fullback pick-up, which is expected to be available in the UK in autumn 2016.

The Fiat Fullback is based on the new Mitsubishi L200 and will be available in the UK in autumn 2016.

The observant among you will notice that the Fullback bears an uncanny resemblance to the new Mitsubishi L200. The Fullback is of course based on the new L200:

This is good news, really. The L200 has been a consistent success and remains popular in the UK pick-up market. Like the new L200, the Fullback will be available in the UK as a double cab model only with just two trim levels.

The Fullback will be powered by Mitsubishi’s new aluminium 2.4-litre diesel engine, with a choice¬† of 150PS or 180PS power levels. A choice of six-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission will be available, both with four-wheel drive.

Inside, the Fullback is virtually identical to the new L200.

According to Fiat, the medium-duty pick-up truck segment accounted for 675,000 sales in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) region in 2014. It’s understandable that the firm would like to get a slice of the action — I suspect this model may steal sales from the L200 in Europe and the UK, albeit probably not in Africa or the Middle East.
