2016 was a special year for Fiat Ducato, as it celebrated its 35th birthday with an unchallenged leadership in the "large van” segment: it is the best seller in thirteen markets and in the camper segment. To date, 3 out of 4 motorhomers travel on a camper built on a Ducato Fiat Professional base.
A true trend-setter, Ducato is a global model whose success has no contenders.
In Europe, in the last ten years, 500,000 families chose to travel on board of a camper van with a Fiat Professional Ducato base: a key point of reference for camper van fitters. For the last 35 years, Ducato has been providing contents and services for problem-free journeys and, in 2016, over 73% of the 95,000 registered camper vans were built on a Ducato base. Its technical features are continuously evolving and in addition to the excellent content of Fiat Professional products, the brand customers enjoy the peace of mind that comes from interacting with dedicated services offering integrated solutions and international services that are designed for camper travellers. History shows us something: watching the technical developments of the Ducato over time means looking at the evolution of the camper holiday. The various generations of camper models contributed to shaping and improving the habits of the outdoor enthusiasts and their holiday experience, by offering increasingly specific answers to the demands of motorhome life.
The current sixth generation of the model provides the best solutions for driving comfort, safety, performance, consumption and least impact on the environment. Born in 2014 to respond to new customer needs, the new generation model offers more technology, efficiency and value. A new range of Euro6 engines with LPEGR technology was launched in 2016.
Today, the new Multijet2 Euro 6 engines in the Ducato line-up are all top in class in terms of fuel efficiency, and they deliver high torque at low rpms - an essential feature for motorhome drivers.
Fiat Professional has capitalised on its leading position to develop the one-of-a-kind technology solution for the new motor home bases Multijet2 Euro 6 engines that best suits motor homers’ needs
Furthermore, for the tenth year running, Ducato was awarded the prestigious “Best Camper Base” prize in 2017 by the readers of German magazine Promobil.
