Summer brings plenty of major innovations in the world of Fiat Professional for Recreational Vehicles: ready to get on board and discover them all?
Let us present the new range of 2019 Euro 6d-TEMP engines from 120 to 180 Hp, the eagerly awaited 9-speed automatic transmission and the very latest safety devices.
We start with the Euro 6d-TEMP range: like its predecessor, the new 2019 range of Euro 6d-TEMP engines, from 120 to 180 Hp offers the right engine for every outfit type and driving style. The 4 engines implement “Top Technology” and are engineered one by one. They differ in their constructive features, such as the design of the turbocharger, the pistons and the fluidodynamics, and not merely due to different electronic calibrations.
In addition to the usual Diesel Particulate Filter, the new engines adopt an after-treatment based on the SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) process. This is a chemical alteration of the polluting nitrogen oxides into non-dangerous products, such water and diatomic nitrogen, thanks to the addition of a reductant (urea), commercially known as "adBlue".
On the entire range:
> The biggest displacement of the category (FWD, 2.3 litre) ensures top reliability and durability, even for the heaviest Camping Car configurations.
> VGT (Variable Geometry Turbocharger) improves driving smoothness, making the engine more reactive even at low speed, contributing to fuel saving
Fiat has redesigned its entire engine line-up and can now accompany engine development while keeping performance unchanged or even improving it. Let's take a closer look!
The 120 MULTIJET2, on 2.3 litre base and with maximum torque at 1400 rpm, is ideal for long and carefree journeys and delivers more torque than the 115 Multijet2 Euro6B;
The 140 MULTIJET2 with maximum torque of 350 Nm from 1,400 to 2,500 rpm, is best suited to medium upfits up to 3.5 tonnes and is perfect for travellers seeking the perfect balance between performance and fuel consumption. It is also available with the new automatic transmission!
The 160 MULTIJET2 POWER with maximum torque of 380/400 Nm from 1,500 to 2,750 rpm is perfect for all upfits, including those over 3.5 tonnes. It is ideal if you are planning particularly long and demanding journeys. Now also with the new 9-speed automatic transmission!
The 180 MULTIJET2 POWER with maximum torque of 400/450 Nm from 1,500 to 3,000 rpm handles demanding terrain and gradients with ease. The engine's performance is even further improved compared with its famous predecessor the 180 Multijet2 Power Euro 6B, thanks to the new full-automatic transmission, which boosts its torque by up to +12.5%.
All travellers want the very best in comfort... even when driving! And why not start your holiday at the wheel, assisted by the transmission itself? One of the major innovations on the Fiat Ducato range is the full automatic 9-speed transmission. Available on 140, 160 and 180 Hp engines, it will ensure you the most relaxed driving experience!
And to enjoy unbeatable safety you can count on the new safety systems, now added to the many devices that help to guarantee you safe travel:
Full Brake Control (FBC): Prevents or reduces the severity of a collision, by detecting obstacles in the forward path. It warns the driver and, if he doesn't react, brakes automatically.
Blind spot Assist (BSA): Exploits radar sensors to detect upcoming vehicles that are not visible because they are in the blind-spot angle of the rear-view mirrors;
Rear Cross Path detection (RCP): It helps avoid accidents in manoeuvring, in particular on vehicles with a limited view angle, such as camping-cars, by detecting vehicles coming from the side!
The next step? Entertainment!
You can enjoy new connectivity: explore the new version radio with the 7" screen with Apple CarPlay and AndroidAuto, which will make your navigation and use of smartphone apps easier than ever.
APPLE CARPLAY will let you use all your favourite apps right there on the screen, just the same as on your iPhone. With ANDROID AUTO you'll be constantly connected thanks to steering wheel controls and voice controls.
Get ready to start your engine: now you can keep travelling in a Ducato base motorhome in total safety and with the utmost comfort!
