We must admit that we usually neglect European carmakers, especially Italian, and you will see more posts about trucks coming from the US than any other country. Therefore, we decided to present one of the most anticipated trucks from the Europe – the 2017 Fiat Toro. This mid-size truck has been popular in Europe, but it hasn’t made any breakthrough yet. We shall see whether 2017 model is going to make any changes.
2017 Fiat Toro Engine
Probably the biggest modification is the introduction of a new engine. The previous model used the 1.9l diesel unit, but the new one is more likely to have a different unit under the hood. The 2017 Fiat Toro is going to have at least one new engine option – the 2.0l unit that can produce 140 horsepower. According to several sources, there will be a diesel option as well with an output of 200 horsepower which is significantly higher than the first choice.
These two engines should be mated to the six-speed manual gearbox (manual transmission is still more popular than automatic in Europe). Allegedly, this won’t be the only transmission system, and new Toro is going to be coupled to the nine-speed automatic gearbox. However, we heard this information through the grapevine thus, we’re still waiting for the official confirmation.
The driving system is going to depend on the trim level, and it will be either RWD or AWD. Towing capacity is estimated at 2,200lbs. Top speed is decent with 120 mph, but it could have had better acceleration – 10 seconds from 0 to 60 mph. Fuel economy is expected to be a lot better than before, but exact figures haven’t been published yet.
Fiat had several failures in the past thus they put a lot of effort in creating a vehicle according to customers’ needs. They lend an ear to their customers and applied several modifications of the both interior and exterior. The design of the 2017 Fiat Toro takes after Fiat FCC4 Concept, and it is still faithful to this design despite modifications. In the future, we recommend Fiat to change the front grille. It is old-fashioned, and it’s not appealing to the majority of people. Everything else seems fine and generally Fiat did a great job with new Toro.
This truck still comes with dual-zone climate control and besides this feature, there are plenty of others. Some of the most important are automatic headlights, rearview camera, keyless ignition and cruise control. It offers much more than its predecessor. Also, Fiat Toro 2017 is equipped with LED running lights, seven-speaker audio system, dual exhaust system and much more. Safety has been elevated with the same features which have been improved thanks to new technology. In general, besides grille, this truck has no other flaws.
Price and Release Date
The 2017 Fiat Toro shouldn’t hit the market soon, and it may pass even a year before we get a chance to see it running on the streets. According to reliable sources, it should come around New Year, and it’ll cost approximately $35,000. This price seems reasonable, but we’ll see whether it is going to cost the same in Europe and the US.
