With the partnership with PSA for medium-sized commercial vans ending, Fiat was going to be left without a vehicle in the segment. Enter Renault. The all-new Fiat Talento replaces the Fiat Scudo and is a rebadge of the Renault Trafic. The Talento nameplate was also used on the short wheelbase versions of the 1st Generation Fiat Ducato.
This is not the only rebadge the Traffic is responsible for either. The midsize van is also rebadged as the Opel and Vauxhall Vivaro. The upcoming Nissan NV300 is also rebadged from the vehicle.
Other competitors to the new Talento include the Mercedes V-Class/Vito, Ford Transit Custom, and the new trifecta from PSA/Toyota.
If you are expecting this could possibly become a Ram-badged product, do not hold your breath. It being based upon a Renault will most likely keep it in Europe and select other markets only.
