Fiat teases Latin America-bound Toro pickup
Fiat has published a dark teaser image that previews a new pickup truck called Toro.
Based on the Mitsubishi Triton, the Toro will be Fiat’s first-ever body-on-frame truck. The teaser suggests it gets a rugged-looking design with a tall front end that’s characterized by slim headlights and a wide hexagonal grille. A Fiat emblem flanked by thin pieces of chrome trim is the only visual link between the Toro and the more cutesy members of the Italian company’s lineup.
Technical details aren’t available yet. For what it’s worth, the Triton is offered with three turbodiesel four-cylinder engines whose outputs range from 128 horsepower and 177 lb-ft. of torque to 181 ponies and 317 lb-ft. of twist. A gasoline-burning four that makes 128 horsepower and 143 lb-ft. of torque is also available, and buyers can choose either two- or four-wheel drive.
The Fiat Toro will be officially unveiled later this year, and it will go on sale in select Latin American nations shortly after. It might be offered in Europe next year, but at the time of writing Fiat is not planning on taking on the Chevrolet Colorado/ GMC Canyon twins and the Toyota Tacoma in the United States.
