Fiat’s Brazilian unit has decided to return with a new picture of the upcoming Toro pickup truck, showcasing this time around the very interesting take on the rear end.
A few months back Fiat Brazil – the local units of the automakers stationed in the biggest economy in South America are highly prodigious and will give us new models built specifically for the region every now and then – unveiled the first official picture with the upcoming Toro pickup truck – it was shown from the front back then. The reveal of the back side also came with a pretty big surprise, since we’re looking here at the only modern pickup truck with split tailgate opening mechanism (Lincoln Blackwood anybody?) in the world. By the way the entire mechanism seems to be hiding behind the massive Fiat inscription that will be visible from afar.
We’re treated here to a top of the line model which has all the necessary amenities installed – and we’re looking at the most powerful powertrain choice as well: the 170-hp 2.0 16v Multijet turbodiesel mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel drive system. If we take a closer look we can also see some big 18-inch alloys and the off-road suspension, xenon headlights, parking sensors, Hill Descent Control, among other features. South American markets should receive the all new truck starting early 2016 as production has already started at the plant in Brazil – with no word yet if the parent company plans to also distribute the Toro in Europe or North America.
