FCA: Fiat Toro Pickup Truck Not Heading to U.S. Lineup

 Source:Automotive News | Publication date: Feb 9, 2017 | Author(s):Larry P. Vellequette

Despite suggestions from global design chief Ralph Gilles, fans hoping that FCA would launch the Fiat Toro pickup truck in the U.S. are bound for disappointment.

During his appearance at the Chicago Auto Show, Gilles presented an image of the new Toro and told members of the audience “You’re going to be seeing more from Fiat on the truck side, especially.”

However, Gilles later clarified via Twitter that while he was a big fan of the Toro, there are no plans to introduce the pickup in the United States.

Underpinned by a global platform that it shares with the Jeep Renegade and Compass, the Toro is a metric-ton pickup with a unibody frame. The truck offers optional 1.8-liter and 2.4-liter gasoline engines as well as a 2.0-liter diesel engine and includes two rows of seating and a compact bed that offers 29 cu.ft of space.

    True. But the Ridgeline is still pretty big and ... more importantly ... expensive. What fueled the first generation of mini-trucks was that they were an alternative to a cheap economy car, but with a lot more character and utility. If you are an active young person, living in the city, and you had an alternative to buying, say a Sonic, that could carry dirty mountain bikes or climbing hear and be handy for apartment moves and still got decent fuel economy -- might that not be an attractive proposition? Right now, that vehicle doesn't really exist. Think Trax-based with AWD and a useful bed for about $20K.
