Fiat Ducato is a car that forms the basis for the vast majority of motorhomes built today. Therefore, the premiere of the new generation is an event not only in the automotive world, but also in industries related to camping tourism.

Fiat Ducato and its twin models - Peugeot Boxer and Citroen Jumper - are by far the most popular vans in the world. It was also very successful. The fifth generation of Fiat Ducato collects a lot of positive feedback from users.

Will the new Ducato / Boxer / Jumper models repeat the success of their predecessors? Will they be equally willing to be adapted for tourist purposes? Will they maintain their dominant position on campsites? So far, everything points to it.

The new face of Fiat Ducato

When it comes to the appearance of the new generation cars, the front end will change the most. Now it will be much more modern, and even a bit more aggressive. Attention is drawn to the large grill and narrow lights , with a clearly drawn line of LED daytime running lights.

In addition, the van version is distinguished by straight lines and smooth surfaces of the side windows. The sliding door guide fits perfectly with the window line.

An interesting fact is the front bumper, which consists of three parts . Thanks to this, the "parking" damage is to be cheaper to repair - it is enough to replace the part of the bumper that will be damaged.


The manufacturer ensures that drivers will appreciate more comfortable seats in the new model. The cup holder integrated in the console is also new. In the center of the dashboard there is a multifunctional holder that is suitable for phones, tablets and navigation of various brands. Even a regular notebook can be attached to it!

Ecology + technology

In line with contemporary trends, Fiat has reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions in its vehicles. The most economical engines are able to consume 5.8 l / 100 km .

All MultiJet 2.3 and 3.0 engines will have the Comfort Matic six-speed gearbox with an improved configuration to help adapt to different driving conditions and functions. Version 2.0 will also continue to be produced. 115 hp, five-speed gearbox.

The new Ducato has a maximum gross vehicle weight of 4.4 tonnes , with a rear axle load of 2.4 tonnes and a front axle load of 2.1 tonnes (panel vans). The permissible load capacity has been increased, while reducing the car's curb weight. The achievement of this goal was possible thanks to the rear suspension made of composite .

Electronics on board

Electronic Stability Control (ESC), enhanced by an anti-rollover system, will be available on all versions of the Ducato at no extra cost. The New Ducato also features Electronic Load Control (LAC), Hill Holder , Traction Control (ASR) and Emergency Brake Assist (EBA).

In models with the MultiJet 2.3 and 3.0 engines, the Servotronic system will be standard. Other systems such as Traction +, Lane Keeping Assist and Automatic Traffic Sign Recognition will be available at an additional cost.

The new model offers Bluetooth technology as standard and an MP3 player in all available models of radios, and in the top version of the range - a 5 color touch screen, rear view camera , built-in navigation and a DAB digital radio tuner.

The new Ducato panel van will be available in 4 length variants and 3 roof heights , and in the chassis for installation - in 6 length variants.
