Chronology
PredecessorFiat Strada (Europe)

The Fiat Fullback is a pickup truck from the Italian automobile manufacturer Fiat. The result of a collaboration agreement between Fiat and the Japanese automaker Mitsubishi signed in 2014, the truck is mechanically identical to the fifth generation of the Mitsubishi L200, from which the engines also originate. It has been assembled since 2016 in Laem Chabang by Mitsubishi Motors Thailand.[1] The only changes from the L200 are the front grille and some interior finishing specifications, as well as customisations by Mopar.

It is marketed in the Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) selling region, and was introduced at the Dubai International Motor Show on November 10, 2015. In some countries it is badged as the Ram 1200.

The Fullback is only sold in the EMEA markets as Fiat already produces a pickup for the South American market which is not exported elsewhere, the Fiat Toro, which is similar in size to the Fullback but based on the monocoque chassis of the Jeep Renegade.

The Fullback for the European market is sold in rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive with a aluminum 2.4-liter DI-D Mitsubishi diesel engine, available in two power variants, 150 PS (110 kW; 148 hp) and 180 PS (132 kW; 178 hp).

On the Middle East and Africa markets the model will be sold in the 4x2 version with a 2.4-liter gasoline engine with 132 PS (97 kW; 130 hp) and a 2.5 liter diesel in two power versions of 110 PS (81 kW; 108 hp) and 178 PS (131 kW; 176 hp).

Like most of its competitors, the Fullback offers four configurations (single cab, extended cab, double cab, and cab chassis), and three trim levels. All versions have the same height (1780 mm), width (1815 mm) and wheelbase (3000 mm); the length varies depending on the configuration: 5155 mm for the single cab, 5275 mm for the extended cab and 5285 mm for the double cab.
