The Fiat Fullback is a strong and very capable pickup. It is based on the Mitsubishi L200, and so towbars are available for both models.
Like the Mitsubishi, the Fiat has impressive off-road credentials, with four-wheel drive, rugged styling and lots of ground clearance.
The Fullback is powered by the same 2.4-litre diesel engine, with two power options: 150PS or 180PS. There's a six-speed manual or an optional five-speed automatic gearbox. Like the L200, the Fullback is at its best with the 180PS engine, which provides lots of low-gear grunt, with 430Nm of torque and a 3.1-tonne towing capability.
The 150PS unit, in comparison, feels a bit more lethargic and will only pull 2.7 tonnes.
Both models can carry a nose load on the towbar of up to 125kg.
The towbar for this vehicle is only available in a fixed flangeball option which has two height settings on the face plate.
The Fiat Fullback pickup has Trailer Stability Control built in as standard. We always install the towbar on these vehicles with Vehicle Specific Wiring as standard to activate these built in safety features.
Prices shown below include professional mobile fitting at your home or work. We directly employ all of our towbar installers, and we will not simply contract out the work to a 3rd party company or self-employed towbar fitter. Read More
The claimed economy is good for both versions of the 2.4-litre diesel. The 150PS unit will return an official 40.9mpg, while the more accomplished 180PS unit will provide the same, or 37.7mpg when linked to a five-speed automatic gearbox. CO2 emissions range from 180 - 196g/km depending on which output and gearbox you choose.
Like the Mitsubishi L200, the Fullback is an impressive off-roader, and all versions are capable of ploughing through mud, snow, sand or anything else that stands in its way. Things aren't quite so impressive on the road, with the Fullback's ladder chassis frame and leaf springs producing a bumpy ride. Things improve when driving with a full load, but the Fullback doesn't match the refinement and comfort found in the Volkswagen Amarok and Nissan Navara.
That said, the Fullback is backed by Fiat's extensive professional dealer network and is ideal for any builder, forestry worker or engineer who wants a go anywhere works vehicle. However, given the fact it is virtually identical - and built in the same factory - as the Mitsubishi L200, the choice between the two will boil down to whichever you can get the best deal on.
