Fiat is back with another image of the Toro that reveals its rear end.
The new pickup truck has a split tailgate, with the opening mechanism hiding behind the Fiat logo. The taillights flow into the rear fenders, while the plastic body cladding, along with the increased ground clearance, give it a rugged look and the impression that it can challenge any terrain.
Three new badges are visible on the truck, including “Toro”, that referrers to its name, “Volcano”, which is probably the trim level and “AT9” that might be telling us something about its powertrain.
Speaking of power, the new Fiat Toro is rumored to be offered with an entry-level 1.8-liter bi-fuel engine, rated at approximately 140hp, and a 2.0-liter Multijet turbo diesel. All-wheel drive will probably be offered as an option, for the top-of-the-line version.
Fiat’s rival to the Ford Ranger, VW Amarok and Toyota Hilux will be introduced in South America, sometime in 2016.
It’s now known whether Fiat plans to sell the pickup truck outside South America, but it wouldn’t be the first time that an automaker keeps a pickup truck restricted to this market, as Renault does the same with the Duster Oroch.
