FIAT 4WD DUAL CAB – DOES IT BEAT WRANGLER UTE TO MARKET? – CAR BUSINESS ON THE JOB
Mike Manley, the head of Jeep commented recently that he’d like to see a broader market for FCA commercial vehicles available worldwide. Whilst currently exclusive for the Brazilian market, does the success of Volkswagen Amarok, manufactured in Argentina and shipped around the world provide signals?
A dual cab diesel 4wd dual cab would make sense for the Australian market particularly if it’s available in diesel, 4wd, 1 Tonne capacity and auto transmission. And more importantly, given it would be manufactured in an emerging market the price should be pretty sharp.
Fiat needs more product in Australia and this vehicle could slot into the Fiat Professional range nicely. There’s no doubt that Fiat Pro dealers would see this as a lucrative vehicle in their product line-up.

There have been rumours of the Fiat Toro being rebadged as a RAM since Mike Manley, Head of Jeep and RAM, had expressed interest in introducing a mid-size pick-up truck. It could rival the Honda Ridgeline and Chevrolet Colorado in the segment, and be one of RAM’s first unibody pick-up trucks.

Above anything else, Car Business is a company that provides automotive advice for car owners who don’t have access to experts. Am I an expert? I’ve been in the car business for over 38 years and whilst there are areas where I’ll reach out to friends and acquaintances for advice, I’ve got a pretty good grasp of most aspects of the business. I’ve been called a lot of things in my time – Car Doctor, Car Professor or The Car Guru, but whenever someone wants some sensible advice, they call me.
I don’t charge for advice, whether it’s on the phone, via email or face to face. I’m happy to provide my expertise whenever I can. So if you want to chat to The Car Guru, get in touch. I have access to good quality cars – you can see them on Cars Guide. Just click here [Cars Guide] to view our current stock of vehicles.

I’ve got thousands of mechanical and panel parts plus Mopar (Jeep, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Alfa) T-Shirts, tyres and alloy wheels as well. If you’re looking for a hard to get part for any of these brands, or you just want to get a better price than retail on any car brand, let me know. And you won’t pay inflated replacement parts prices either. I’ve priced my stock at a discounted value to compete with USA and Europe spare parts prices but with local delivery charges.
