Default 2021 Fiat Strada

First official image of Fiat#s new small pick up for South America

https://www.carscoops.com/2020/02/20...ficial-teaser/



Techincal info is sparse, so far all we know is it is based of Fiat's Small MP1 architecture (also underpinning the Fiat Argo and Cronos), which so far is exclusive to South America, but with a longer wheelbase; Which would place this at the larger end of the B-segment, bordering the C-segment;

Unlike the previous Strada (tracing it's roots back to the 1996 Fiat Palio), the body seems exclusive to it, and not the hatchback with a different rear end. Anyway, for a small pick up, let alone one so far for developing markets only, this looks rather good.

As the previous Strada was occasionally sold in Europe and other non SA markets as well, I wouldn't be surprised if this ends up getting exported as well at some point.

An easy opportunity to bring this to North America as a baby Ram will be ignored by FCA.

I think unless they start production in some Mexican (or even US) plant, the chicken tax kills this small pickup, just like every other imported pickup, before arrival.

THIS, plus if anything should come over it should be the Toro, not this.

Yeah, size wise, that would make way more sense....

Totally agree w/ the above.

My point is (and remains) that the market wants a true compact pick up (hell - they have 18 different variants on CUV's!!) - and FCA has the products in their library to satisfy that market...but, they're not doing anything with them....
