AS a final hurrah for summer, the Fiat Ducato 4x4 Expedition Show Camper Van has been featured this week at the DÃ¼sseldorf Caravan Salon — one of the world’s most important caravanning events, which runs until Sunday.
It is next due to go on show at the Motorhome and Caravan Show at the NEC in Birmingham from Tuesday, October 13, to Sunday, October 18.
With this one-of-a-kind vehicle, Fiat Professional confirms its knowhow in all aspects of recreational vehicle engineering while also exploring the camper van segment which presently represents more than 25 per cent of Europe’s motorhome market.
Built on the bestselling Fiat Ducato camper base, and powered by a 2.3 150 HP Multijet II engine in long wheelbase configuration with an extended overhang and high roof, the Fiat Ducato 4x4 Expedition is designed for adventurous people seeking a vehicle that is eager and agile on the road yet rugged and capable when the going gets tough.
It combines this versatility with a large, comfortable living space and more interior height than usual.
On the outside, the Show Camper Van features a two-colour paint job in two shades of grey, a raised ride-height, widened track and plenty of Ducato Camper customisations, such as a front skid-plate and LED DRLs.
The outfit is completed by a front winch and a roof-rack that also features a handy platform on which people can walk, 2.5m (8ft 2in) above the ground.
