Fiat Professional Ducato Gets Serious Updates

The Fiat Professional Ducato Series 7 has been given some serious updates with an all-new drivetrain, new safety and convenience features.

It is now powered by the all-new 2.3-litre turbo diesel Euro 6D engine to combine top performance and absolute comfort for a smoother drive. 

The new ZF-9-speed automatic transmission delivers optimal torque while ensuring best fuel efficiency, together with the 180 multijet engine producing 130kW power at 3,500 rpm and 450Nm peak torque for automatic and 400Nm for manual vehicles. 

“The improved drivetrain along with the transmission updates in the new Fiat Professional Ducato enhances the overall vehicle performance and provides ultimate comfort,” said Guillaume Drelon, Director, Brand & Product Strategy for Fiat Professional Australia. “Whilst delivering more torque and a smoother drive, we’re also thrilled to now offer additional standard safety and convenience features within the Fiat Professional Ducato range.”

The updated range introduces a suite of standard safety and convenience features, including Full Brake Control and Lane Departure Warning, reverse camera, brake assist, roll-over mitigation and a hill holder. An additional Safety Pack option adds even more safety features including Blind Spot Assist +, Rear Cross Path Detection, Traction+ and Hill Descent Control.

The Comfort and Tech Pack offers a 7” infotainment screen with navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It also includes LED Daytime running lights, automatic climate control and a tyre pressure monitoring system.

All vehicles in the Fiat Professional Ducato range now feature the all-new 2.3L Euro 6D engine, 9-speed automatic transmission and new AdBlue tank. The XLWB MR will only be available with auto transmission and the rest of the range will be available with manual or auto transmission.

The updated Fiat Professional Ducato range is on sale from $46,300 MSRP through Fiat Professional Dealerships across Australia.
