The 2016 Fiat Fullback pickup truck, which is based the 2016 model year Mitsubushi L200, will go on sale in Europe starting in May, the Italian automaker has announced.
The entry-level Fiat Fullback will be offered with a 2.4-liter diesel four-cylidner engine producing 150 horsepower, or customers may opt for the more powerful 180 horsepower version. A six-speed manual transmission is standard, while a five-speed automatic is available as an option.
In the United Kingdom, the Fullback will come standard with four-wheel drive, but two-wheel drive will be regular equipment in other EU markets. The pickup also boasts a maximum payload of 2,304 lbs and a maximum towing capacity of 6,812 lbs, which should make it brawny enough to complete most tasks Europeans will throw at it.
Fiat plans on displaying the new Fullback at the 2016 Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham, U.K. from April 26th to the 28th.
