Leading publication impressed by Fiat Professional Ducato

The latest Fiat Professional Ducato had been review by leading publication What Car?. North East Truck and Van take a look at the outcome.

High payload

Highlighting the high payload capacity What Car? stated, “…the Ducato has become such a phenomenal success in the large van sector”. It went on to add A high payload capacity is, after all, one of the reasons why so many body builders use vans for motorhomes, the other being that, unlike the Peugeot and the Citroën, the Fiat comes with a choice of engines and power outputs”.

Designed to meet the needs of modern business

The Fiat Professional Ducato is available in “more than 10,000 different configurations with four body lengths and three body heights”. In addition to a panel van it is available as a platform and chassis cab, dropside, crew van, three-way tipper and minibus.

Performance and drive

With four engine options available Fiat is renowned for its excellent commercial vehicle engines, too, and the 2.3-litre unit is no exception”. Further compliments about the drive included “The Ducato drives particularly well and is a far more comfortable van than in previous generations. To say it has matured into a sophisticated working vehicle is not an understatement. The suspension is finely tuned to be both engaging to drive and comfortable and the steering is nicely weighted for a large van so that you’re not fighting it at every turn”.


The weight options of the Fiat Professional Ducato offer a load capacity of 3 to 4.3 tonnes and payloads of 800kg to 2100kg. Load length ranges from 2670mm to 4070mm with a height of 1662mm to 2172mm.
