Fiat launches the new improved Ducato for commercial customers
|   Wednesday, September 12, 2012
Commercial vehicles have always been the choice of the Italian car makers and Fiat has gone back to proving that all over again. Fiat is all set to launch the reworked Ducato panel pickup after thirty years of being in the market.

Fiat has sold more than 2.2 million Ducatos worldwide since its launch in the early 1980s and this certainly tells the tale of the vehicle's commercial success and Fiat's capabilities. The Fiat Ducato offers cutting edge capabilities like power, comfort, looks and aesthetics and more for a low price and high fuel efficiency and towing capability.
These are the characteristics of a true pickup truck and the Ducato has them all.

The Ducato has a 2.3 liter 16-valve multi jet common rail diesel engine at its helm and the motor features high pressure induction electronically. The engine produces 88 KW @ 3,600 RPM, torque figures range between 320 Nm @ 2,000 RPM.

The engine is completely versatile and is capable of running smoothly as well as towing excess weights without budging. The highly responsive throttle system further enhances the total experience. The engine is totally refined and quiet, just like a Fiat and optional luxury features make the van perfect for cruising.

The Ducato is capable of travelling long distances without pausing and low fuel consumption means enhanced performance. The Ducato has undergone a few thousand hours and a few million kilometers of driving tests. The Ducato consumes 6.8 l / 100 km inside the city and 8.8 l / 100 km on the open highway.

Overall, the mileage can be calculated to be close to 7.5 l / 100 km. The easy access to the rear and the carrying capacity of the Ducato are the highlights of the vehicle. The vehicle also features two sliding side doors with a spare secondary door as well.

The rear door is hinged and it opens up to 90 and 180 degrees, which means more accessibility while loading and unloading. On special request, the company provides 270 degrees moving ability of the rear hinged doors, hence, better accessibility.

The platform is just 55 cm raised from the ground and this means easy loading and offloading. The cabin has a host of simple control features and the drive is comfortable. The entire cabin has been designed to fit in people of any shape and size and the seating position does not put undue stress on the driver.

The car features an advanced transmission, parking sensors, air conditioning with climate control, CD player and GPS connectivity. Fog lamps are also an added incentive for the Ducato and the suspension system of the Ducato absorbs most of the shock and makes the ride even more comfortable.

The totally stiff structure of the Ducato has gone through close to 120 dummy crash tests and a couple of another hundreds of tests on the other components. Safety is also a primary concern for the Ducato, the cargo and passenger on the vehicle keeps safe at all instances and the structure of the Ducato is built for structural stability and complete safety.
