It was first launched to the public in the Netherlands, and received the "2006 International Van of the Year" award by an international jury from 19 countries. In Singapore, a 1.4-litre LAV variant is marketed as the Fiat Panorama in 5 and 7-seater versions.
The Doblò carries a payload of up to 730 kg (1,609 lb), with an interior volume of 3.2 cubic metres (110 cu ft). The Doblò uses platform of Fiat Palio Station Wagon.
It is manufactured by Fiat's Tofaş subsidiary factory in Bursa, Turkey, in Brazil since 2002 and in Russia and Vietnam. Turkish models have an engine range that includes a 1.4-litre petrol, a 1.9-litre MultiJet, and a 16-valve 1.3-litre MultiJet.
The facelift version came in autumn 2005, and was restyled with modifications to the front and rear light groups, and the total design of the front part.
Launched in 2002 the Brazilian Doblòs were initially available with two 16-valve petrol engines, a 1.3-litre Fire and a 1.6-litre Torque. From 2004 to 2009, the only engine available in Brazil was an 8-valve 1.8-litre Powertrain, supplied by General Motors do Brasil. This engine was produced initially in a petrol version and later as flex fuel.
In 2003 Fiat Brazil introduced an off-road 4x2 version called Fiat Doblò Adventure, also with the straight-4 Powertrain 1800 cc engine. It has revised exterior look with bigger bumpers and mouldings and raised ride height 6 cm (2.4 in) and spare wheel on the rear. In 2009, the whole Adventure line (Doblò, Idea, Strada and Palio Weekend) was equipped with a locking differential. The line was rebadged as Adventure Locker. Only in the 2010 model, the Brazilian Doblò and the Doblò Adventure were updated with the 2005 European facelift. Besides the 1.8-litre Powertrain, Doblò is now equipped with a 1.4-litre Fire flex engine. In the 2011 model, the 8-valve 1.8-litre Powertrain engine was replaced by the brand new 16-valve 1.8 litre E-Torq engine, produced by Fiat Powertrain Technologies.

Ram ProMaster City
The Ram ProMaster City is an Americanised version of the Fiat Doblò. The ProMaster City is built in the same plant in Turkey as the Doblò and imported to North America. To circumvent the chicken tax, only passenger vans are imported into North America, with cargo vans being post-import conversions. Unlike the Doblò, passenger versions of the ProMaster City use solid metal panels instead of glass in its rear quarters, and third row seating and the lift tailgate are not offered. The 2.4 L Tigershark engine matted to the 948TE 9-speed automatic transmission is the only powertrain available for the ProMaster City.
