Fiat of Brazil has released the first official image of its upcoming Toro pick-up. Previewed by Fiat’s outlandish FCC4 Concept from 2014, which was billed as a “four-door pick-up coupe crossover”, the Toro is a Jeep Rengade based, double-cab pick-up truck with a payload of 1,000 Kg. Set to be launched in South America early next year, the new Toro will compete against the likes of the Toyota Hilux, Volkswagen Amarok, and the Ford Ranger.
The Toro measures 4915 mm long, and will be offered with either a 1.8 litre E.torQ flex fuel engine with 138 hp on tap or a 2.0 litre Multijet turbo-diesel engine good for 170 hp. While the E.torQ engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and a 4×2 (FWD) set-up, the diesel engine can be had with either a six-speed manual or nine-speed automatic transmission, along with both 4×4 or 4×2 set-ups.
The new Fiat Toro will be initially offered with three trim levels – Urban, Adrenaline and Country. The top-end trim level will be equipped with 18-inch wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control system, Hill Descent Control, LED daytime running lights, fog lamps, dull silver skid plates and chrome accents as standard. Inside, the Toro is expected to feature the uConnect infotainment system which employs a five-inch touch-screen display, along with navigation, a reversing camera and Bluetooth connectivity. Optional equipment include an electric sunroof, partial leather upholstery, auto xenon headlights, an upgraded sound system and rain-sensing wipers.
