The 2016 Fiat Toro has been spotted in production guise at the company’s factory in Goiana, Brazil where the compact pickup truck is assembled.

Fiat Brazil has only shared so far official renders of its new Toro, but now we have some live pics and coincidentally it’s the exact same version from the press images. It’s actually the range-topping Volcano edition equipped with a 170-hp 2.0-liter 16v Multijet turbodiesel teamed up to a 4x4 system. In this specification, the engine works with a nine-speed automatic transmission and offers the maximum 258 lb-ft (350 Nm) torque from 1,750 rpm.

Fiat hasn’t released all of the details yet, so we don’t know the length of the bed, for example. We can tell you the double cab pickup has an overall length of 193.5 inches (4915 mm) and features a maximum payload capacity of 2,204 lbs (1,000 kg). This flagship version rides on 18-inch wheels and comes fitted with xenon headlights.

We are still waiting to see the interior cabin, but Fiat has already announced it will get a 5-inch Uconnect infotainment system with GPS navigation, Bluetooth connectivity, and a rearview camera. At an additional cost, an electric sunroof will be on offer and customers will be able to opt for partial leather upholstery.

As you can observe, production has already started, so deliveries will likely begin early 2016. For an utilitarian model, it looks quite nice and definitely has what it takes to be a success for Fiat. It’s not known at this point whether FCA has plans to keep the Toro a Latin America affair or the model will eventually go global.
