the New Fiat Ducato Panel Van Range
The New Ducato is the largest offering in both their new and used van range. The latest sixth generation version is the most advanced Ducato panel van to date. The Ducato range is built around a line-up of Fiat’s Multijet II common-rail diesel engines with 2.3-litre and 3.0-litre units available packing power outputs from 110bhp to 177bhp. It is the most economical panel van currently available, capable of returning 45.6mpg with the 6-speed manual gearbox. There is an option of a Comfort-Matic auto on all models except those with the entry-level 110bhp engines. There are over 10,000 different configurations available in a Ducato range, with the standard Ducato ranging from L1H1 to L3H2 models and the heavy-duty Ducato Maxi from L2H2 to L4H3. In addition, there are window vans, a dropside truck, combi and minibus versions, plus the Ducato chassis is very popular for motorhome conversions. Service intervals are now up to 30,000 miles thanks to upgraded brakes, clutch and new front suspension. Additional body reinforcement and upgraded door hinges are also fitted.
Somewhat vast interior dimensions give the Ducato panel van one of the largest load capacities of up to 17.0m3 of space. Gross weight extends from 3,000kg to 4,250kg. Fiat has divided the range into lighter Ducato and heavier Ducato Maxi models, with the former, powered by the 2.3-litre engines, comprising L1H1 to L3H2 versions and featuring gross vehicle weights between 3,000kg and 3,500kg. The Ducato Maxi range overlaps with the Ducato range, taking in L2H2 to L4H3 models at 3,500kg, 4,005kg and 4,250kg GVW. Payloads from 800kg to a maximum of 2,100kg are available and all Ducato models have a full height metal bulkhead as standard fitment. Fiat Ducatos offer a 1.42m loading width between the rear wheel arches.
There is plenty of safety equipment fitted, including a driver’s airbag, ABS with EBD and ESC stability control as standard. A range of other electronic driver aids are also built-in to the ESC system including Roll-Over Mitigation and Load Adaptive Control which are specially designed to increase the stability of the van. A hill start system and ASR anti-slip regulation are also included. A passenger airbag can also be specified. The higher spec Ducato Tecnico models have a tyre pressure monitoring system and automatic headlamps. A self-dipping function that lowers the full beam lights to avoid dazzling oncoming traffic is a further option along with Traction+, which helps the Ducato obtain maximum grip on loose surfaces. Traction+ incorporates HDC (Hill Descent Control), a function more commonly seen on off-road vehicles that brakes the van automatically to help descend steep gradients safely.
