Fiat Toro gets big engine in São Paulo, One year after its launch, the Fiat Toro extends its range of engines by hosting the 2.4 MultiAir of 188 hp. the pick-up takes advantage to decline in a Black Jack version with the look can not more dark.
Exactly one year ago, Fiat unveiled the Toro at the São Paulo show. the transalpine pick-up, exclusive to the South American market, was then proposed with a 1.8 petrol block of 140 hp and a Diesel 2.0 MultiJet of 170 hp. but on the occasion of the 2016 edition of the São Paulo show, the Toro is equipped with a bigger gasoline engine: the 2.4 MultiAir of 188 hp. like the 1.8, it can run on ethanol, fuel that is widespread in Brazil. it is also equipped with a Stop & Start system which saves up to 20% of petrol according to Fiat.
Not content with gaining power, the Fiat Toro also offers a little more style thanks to the special Black Jack series. in this version, he dresses almost exclusively in black. even the Fiat logos, normally burgundy, play the game and adopt an anthracite shade.
Who would have thought that one day Mercedes will launch on the market for pick-up? Yet this is the Stuttgart manufacturer of promise with this concept called Mercedes Classe X which will create a production version by the end of 2017.
But if the Mercedes Classe X claims to be the « first premium pick-up », its origins are actually more plebeian. The German is indeed based on the same platform as the Nissan Navara NP300 and Renault Alaskan. In contrast, Mercedes Classe X will be entitled to specific engines. While his two distant cousins have to settle for a 4-cylinder diesel 2.3 biturbo developing up to 190 hp, the pick-up Mercedes will be able to count on a big V6 diesel to cap the range. of course, all engines will be automatically coupled to the wheel drive 4Matic. Note that the concept of Mercedes Classe X also comes in a decidedly adventurous version with off road tires and a more suitable hardware with driving off the beaten track. Appointment end of 2017 for marketing the series of Mercedes Classe X.
