Although Fiat has had a strong presence in the European light commercial vehicle (LCV) market for many years, the Fiat Fullback is the company’s first one-tonne 4×4 pickup for the continent. However, that isn’t to say Fiat hasn’t offered pickups here before; the Fiorino light pickup (500kg) of the 1980’s sold well on the continent until it was replaced by the Strada pickup in the 1990’s.
Further afield, Fiat launched the Toro compact pickup in South America in 2015. However, for the company’s first dedicated one-tonne 4×4 pickup, Fiat sought the expertise of Mitsubishi. This was a surprise to many as Fiat’s sister company in the US, Ram, also requires a one-tonne pickup to offer to the growing market there.
Based on the already-proven L200, the Fiat Fullback hit European dealerships in 2016 and, apart from minor styling cues, is almost identical to the Mitsubishi.
Unlike passenger cars, the Fiat Fullback is only available from Fiat Professional dealers; which comprises of a number of Fiat passenger can and Iveco truck dealerships. As a result, the Fullback benefits from an excellent aftersales service, which includes out of hour servicing.
