Fiat Toro pick-up imagined as an SUV – Rendering
Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.
Not confirmed by FCA.
Fiat currently has the Fiat Freemont crossover, which is the company’s only 7-seater offering. Basically a rebadged Dodge Journey, the Fiat Freemont could aspire to be more than a badge-engineered product when it passes to the next generation.
With that in mind, digital artist ‘The Really Johnny’ has posted a rendering of a possible SUV variant of the Fiat Toro pick-up, which could be a viable successor to the Fiat Freemont, should the company consider a replacement.
Based on the Small Wide platform that also underpins the Jeep Renegade, the Fiat Toro comes with a choice between two engines: a 1.8 16v E-Torq Flex petrol engine and 2.0 16v Multijet turbodiesel. The former produces 138 bhp and is paired to a 6-speed automatic gearbox, while the latter delivers 170 bhp through a 6-speed manual or 9-speed automatic gearbox. A 4×4 drivetrain is only available in the 2.0L turbodiesel variant. These powertrains would benefit any future variants on the Toro’ platform.
Production of the Fiat Toro pick-up has already begun at the Pernambuco plant in Brazil, and is expected to arrive at dealerships in late 2015 or early 2016.
