Fiat Toro arrives to show infinite possibilities on wheels. A multifaceted vehicle, which combines the qualities of SUV, pickup truck and automobile. It offers versions with flex or diesel engines, automatic 6- or 9-gear, or also manual 6-gear, transmission. For urban or off-road use, with 4x2 or 4x4 wheel drive. A vehicle that enables to meeting all the tastes and needs for transport, work or leisure.And everything tailored to the right size: larger than compact and smaller than medium pick-up trucks, 4,915 mm long. Agile in urban traffic and in the optimal size to face any trip.Fiat Toro is a genuine Sport Utility Pick-up (SUP). It combines, size, height and ergonomics of a SUV; robustness of an off-road vehicle and comfort of a car, in addition to the practicality and space of a double cabin 4-door pick-up truck, capacity to accommodate up to five passengers, with elegance and safety, and carrying up to one ton.With Toro, Fiat overcomes the challenge of building a self-supporting body pick-up truck with high strength and low torsion in the body. And all of this based on leading-edge technology, both in terms of comfort and performance, and connectivity and safety.To achieve that, Fiat leveraged its long experience in pick-up trucks based on more than 15 years of absolute leadership of Strada model in the Brazilian market, and also the know-how of the FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) group, which offers the possibility of new and modern designs. Also, FCA counts on the industrial resources in the newly inaugurated Jeep Automotive Complex, in Goiana (PE). Undoubtedly, a new cycle and a new car.A winning projectIn its development, this new model was conceived to provide modern and bold design, in addition to offering optimal handling, ergonomics, finish quality and practicality of use.Fiat Toro was constructed on the global Small-Wide platform. As this is a modular and flexible platform, it has been extended to generate a greater body, with load bay, forming a reinforced self-supporting structure. It uses more than 85% of noble materials, such as advanced high-strength steel. And it provides high torsional stiffness and durability, in addition to excellent capability to absorbing impacts in case of accidents, thanks to programmed deformation lines.Fiat Toro is provided with rugged, safe, durable and smart body, supported on independent suspension in the four wheels, designed to overcome any obstacle, always keeping on board comfort and silence.In addition to the novelty of manufacturing a robust, but comfortable, model, Fiat Toro innovates even with its split load bay tailgate, patented by FCA. It has two parts that open laterally, with option for opening one of them only. Light and practical, the Split tailgate facilitates very much the access to the cargo hold ― the large load bay (820 liters) can optionally be increased for additional 405 liters with its original and exclusive extender, thus increasing the load bay length and providing greater practicality.Design made in BrazilFiat Toro exhibits the best in terms of the world-class automotive design of the brand, conceived to please consumers in Brazil and abroad. Yes, it offers a global design - developed in Brazil and integrated with the FCA's world design. Imposing, it combines beauty, innovation, power and aggressiveness.Everything starts with the "bull's eyes"Split Lightning ― the optical group divided into two assemblies. It marks its presence with determined sight, which becomes the front identity of the model. Involving the whole body, the Wrap Around concept adds modernity and fluidity, where the high waistlines mark the dynamism of Toro, until reaching the innovative and practical split tailgate opening to both sides.The upper optical group exhibits bold and very attractive shape. It brings position and turning signal LED lights. It can also be provided with DRL (Daytime Running Lamp) lights, including high-intensity LED lighting, which assure safety even with daylight. By its turn, the second optical group is in charge of the long range lighting functions. It offers optimal visibility in long distance and turns, and is integrated to the main grille, which has 3D bars.Fiat logo appears partially inserted in the 'muscle' hood, completing the chrome-plated stripe that provides continuity and also sophistication. Still on the lowest part of the front side, auxiliary headlights, fully integrated, compose the fascia design of Fiat Toro.On the sides of Toro, the high waistline emphasizes the sensation of protection and dynamism. By their turn, the enlarged and involving wheel arches reinforce the strength image of the model.On the rear, innovation was even greater and also a challenge for the designers. The extreme solution started on the tailgate typology. Split exactly in the center, its two parts offer versatility of use not experienced yet by customers in the pickup truck segment. The lateral opening of the tailgate parts provides greater comfort to the user for load and unload. Rear LED lights also innovate with the horizontal positioning, enlarging and elevating the model visually.In the inner side, everything has been planned to offer refinement, comfort, excellent ergonomics and sensation of luxury car quality. Fiat Toro is a unique car, which provides the power of a pickup truck, while being capable of performing in the traffic of big cities. This is possible thanks to its wide, refined, involving and protective inner space. Internal details, such as satin chrome-plated elements, color composition and leather covering on steering wheels, provide the ideal combination of strength and comfort of the vehicle.Fiat Toro's dashboard presents modern design, which combines with the bold lines of the body, as well as the instrument panel with color TFT 7" display, which enables great integration with the driver; the multifunctional steering wheel with paddle shifters for gear changes; and the Uconnect Touch NAV 5" Multimedia Center.

The innovative and anatomical seats provide electrical adjustment in the front. Passengers on the rear seats experience very comfortable ride with the wide inner space. To complete, the object compartment on the console is cooled, and the dashboard sides have lamps for night lighting, which is an additional way to reinforce the sensation of exclusivity.Pleasure to driveFiat Toro is not only comfortable, beautiful and attractive, but it is also very enjoyable to drive. A great part of this feeling is due to the totally independent suspension on the front and rear sides, which is a smart and functional solution for pick-up trucks. The front side is provided with the proven McPherson system, and the rear is equipped with a sophisticated Multi-Link suspension. The systems are fastened on the body by supports made of special elastic elements, which ensure full insulation and silence for the occupants, even on bumpy paths.In addition, this independent and strong suspension ensures better handling, stability and agility on any type of terrain or detour, even when carrying one-ton load.The powertrain (1.8 Flex 16V engine with automatic 6-gear transmission and 2.0 Turbodiesel 16V engine with manual 6-gear or automatic 9-gear transmission) was also provided with sophisticated fastening system, including hydraulic pads to insulate efficiently the inner side of Toro from noise and vibrations.Its electrical-assisted steering, together with the state-of-the-art suspension, assures smooth and comfortable ride, comparable to that provided by a car, and enables pleasant driving, even in long trips.A lot of safety and technology on boardFiat Toro offers the best in terms of active safety, with excellent stability, handling and braking capability.

On the dashboard display, warning messages also inform any malfunction or need for maintenance. Even the electrical-assisted steering counts on monitoring via STC, electronic steering control.Numerous safety features are also available during ride, such as ESC (stability control), ASR (drive monitoring) and TTC, managing the torque transfer to wheels.To depart on ascending ramps, it is not necessary to keep the foot on brake pedal, as the Hill Holder feature keeps Fiat Toro immobilized until the engine start.
