Rugged and reliable: the farm-ready Fiat Fullback Cross
In an ever-growing 4x4 pickup market, we take a look at what the new Fiat Fullback Cross has to offer. This robust pickup truly shines off-road, and, following a positive recent review from Farmers Weekly, it appears to be the perfect partner for agricultural endeavours!
With its impressive towing ability, dynamic looks and easy manoeuvrability, the Fiat Fullback Cross is a capable and reliable model. It boasts unbeatable off-road capability, an area where more road-biased 4x4s might struggle. Farmers Weekly praised the capability of the Fullback Cross, saying: “The farm-ready Fullback is at home bashing up and down rutted tracks and the interior has a more workaday feel…Its L200 roots give it a solid and respected base, helped by good ground clearance and an aggressive approach angle that means it is very capable when climbing steep slopes and dealing with deep ruts.”
The Fullback Cross is guaranteed to make an impression with its rugged looks and robust attitude. It features bespoke black alloy wheels, over-sized wheel arch extensions, sports bar, plus an aggressive new front grille. Under the bonnet you’ll find a 2.4-litre turbodiesel with 178bhp, with the choice of a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic gearbox.
Inside this reliable workhorse, there is an undeniable focus on substance over style. Farmers Weekly commented: “…cab plastics are tough, long-lasting and perfectly suited to overall-clad drivers climbing in and out.” That said, you can still take advance of the 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, lane departure warning safety feature, plus a reversing camera on the higher spec trim.
Above all, the Fullback Cross is extremely practical, offering a brilliant ground clearance and best-in-class approach angle, plus an enviable 11.8m turning circle making it extremely manoeuvrable. So, whether you are looking for a reliable farm vehicle or a rugged road vehicle with off-road capability, the Fiat Fullback Cross is well worth a test drive.
