The list of global pickups that aren’t available in the U.S. grows ever longer thanks to Fiat. The Brazilian arm of the automaker has released this photo of the compact truck, but with only a few savory details.

Called the Toro, the pickup will ride on Fiat’s Small wide 4x4 platform also found under the Jeep Renegade. The Toro will be much larger than the cute-‘ute, however, measuring 26 inches longer. Its size is still compact, especially when compared to the Chevrolet Colorado. The Fiat is a full 20 inches shorter than a Colorado Extended Cab.

Like most trucks, the Toro will give customers a wide range of configurations to choose from, including three trim levels, both 2WD and 4WD configurations, and two engine choices, including a turbodiesel.

Fiat says the Toro will have the luxury car-like features with seating for five. A payload rating of 2,204 pounds allows owners to haul a decent amount of cargo, though the Toro’s unibody construction keeps it from competing with the global Colorado and Ford Ranger.

The Toro is expected to make its full debut by the end of 2015 with sales starting in the early parts of 2016.

FCA Design Boss Says Fiat Toro Not Coming to U.S.

FCA Design Boss Says Fiat Toro Not Coming to U.S.

Ralph Gilles “cleared something up” from his speech at Chicago Auto Show

The Fiat Toro, a mid-size lifestyle pickup sold in Latin America, looks like a promising competitor to the Honda Ridgeline. Only it isn’t coming to the U.S. That news comes directly from FCA’s design boss, Ralph Gilles, and his Twitter feed. Gilles tweeted Wednesday that FCA has no plans on selling the unibody pickup in the U.S.

Gilles’ tweet said, “I must clear something up from this morning #MAMA I meant I love the new 2017 #Fiat Toro sold in Latin America, no plans to sell it in the U.S.”

As he stated, the tweet was meant to clear the air after his speech at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show, which led many to believe the Fiat Toro would have a future in North America. “You’re going to be seeing more from fiat on the truck side, especially,” Gilles said at the auto show.

This is disappointing news for the mid-size truck segment. Currently the Honda Ridgeline is the only unibody offering. It competes with several body-on-frame trucks, including the ever-popular Toyota Tacoma. The Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon also make up a large portion of market share.

What’s more, the mid-size truck segment isn’t slowing down. Ford recently made headlines with confirmation of the mid-size Ranger pickup’s return for the 2019 model year, along with the Bronco SUV, which will share the Ranger’s underpinnings. Then, of course, Jeep is set to debut its new 2018 Wrangler and its pickup variant.

For whatever reason, FCA doesn’t seem inclined to enter the market. Perhaps FCA bean counters are worried the Fiat Toro would compete too closely against the Jeep Wrangler pickup. Perhaps FCA simply couldn’t meet demand with the U.S. joining the customer base.

Then again, Gilles could have spoken too early about FCA’s plans to debut the Toro for U.S. consumption, having then to cover his tracks with pacifying statements regarding FCA’s lack of plans for a U.S.-sold Toro.

Whatever the reason, it’s clear many are passionate about the Fiat Toro and its potential launch in American dealerships.
