The Fiat Ducato is a product of the Sevel group (recently renamed Sollers), which is an alliance between Fiat, Citroen and Peugeot. The Ducato is an example of success through collaboration. This large, multi-purpose panel has delivered three generations since it was launched in 1981.
The Fiat Ducato is designed for professionals with carefully crafted interiors and bucket seats that are comfortable enough to spend an entire day in. Plenty of storage compartments, an inclined steering wheel, air-conditioning and cruise control all contribute to a pleasant experience within this panel van or chassis cab – whether you’re transporting heavy goods or simply travelling long distances
Inside this Fiat transporter, drivers will appreciate numerous storage pockets, drawers and compartments, which support the organisation of documents, receipts, pens and other items. An adjustable driver’s seat, which adjusts both for height as well as forwards and backwards, creates comfort during long journeys. A dashboard-mounted gear knob, adjustable steering wheel and highly functional audio and climate controls create a cabin that is comfortable and efficient. Despite the powerful Fiat diesel engine, this vehicle has acoustic and vibration dampening, which results in a quiet ride
The Fiat Ducato Chassis Cab has a distinctive front end. Its three-part bumper, which wraps protectively around the front of the vehicle, creates an impression of strength. Positioned high on the front, the Ducato headlights provide bright lighting while avoiding unnecessary wear and tear. Designed with a focus on simplicity, strength and professionalism, the Ducato Chassis Cab strikes a clean silhouette as a result of its neat side mouldings, which are protective in the event of impact.
The Ducato panel van is available in three trim variations, namely the Ducato 2.3 LH2, the Ducato 2.3 MH1 and the Ducato 2.3 MH2 and are all equipped with a four-cylinder, common-rail 2.3-litre JTD turbocharged diesel engine with Multijet direct injection. This allows it to push out 88kW at 3 600rpm resulting in ample powerful to accommodate a load volume range of between 7.5 and 13 cubic metres. The engines in these Ducato vans can reach top speeds of 150 kilometres per hour with a notable fuel consumption of 7.5 litres per 100 kilometres of combined highway and city driving.
Technical data overview
Differing in axle measurement and length, the Fiat van trim levels are arranged according to their practical applications. For example, the LH2 Ducato van is ideal for goods transport as it has a 13-metre squared cargo hold that is well adapted to carrying materials. The MH1 has a low roof and 11.5-metre squared rear, resulting in a sturdy packing area for those requiring less space than in the LH2. The MH2 is also a goods transport van, but with fewer interior comforts than in the LH2, so that those who prefer to keep the car-like environment of the Fiat Ducato simple and professional can do so without compromising on cargo space
