Fiat Toro pickup truck shows its rear quarter in new image


Fiat has released yet another official image of the Toro pickup truck which is expected to be launched in first quarter of 2016.

Measuring 4,915mm in length, the double cab pickup truck will be based on underpinnings of the FCA Jeep Renegade. To be produced from Fiat Brazil’s Goiana, Pernambuco plant, the Fiat Toro pickup will receive an extended wheelbase and will have a one ton payload capacity with interiors comfortable for upto five occupants.

Images of Fiat Toro pickup truck reveal a split tailgate, tail lamps which flow into rear fenders and plastic body cladding. Higher ground clearance gives the pickup a sportier and more rugged appeal and a feeling that it will be capable of tackling the most rugged of terrain.
