Fiat Ducato named "Best Motorhome Base Vehicle" for 13th year running

Readers of Promobil, the German motorhome magazine, have named the latest Fiat Professional Ducato (MY2020) as the “Best Motorhome Base Vehicle 2020”. This is the 13th year in a row that the magazine has chosen the Fiat Ducato as its “Best Motorhome Base Vehicle” in its annual awards, once again, confirming its leadership in the sector.

The Ducato continues to dominate the European market as the base vehicle for over 500,000 motorhomes in the last 10 years alone. Since 1981, the Ducato has been produced at the Sevel plant, located in Val di Sangro in Italy.

Enhancements for the new Fiat Ducato MY2020 include new features for the motorhome base versions, aiming to further consolidate its undisputed leadership in the sector. Leisure sector customers seem to be particularly enthusiastic about one of its major innovations: the new 9-speed automatic transmission which helps to create a relaxed and pleasant driving experience, plus fuel consumption optimization and performance enhancement.

The engine range for the MY2020 Ducato has been overhauled by the introduction of a Euro 6d-TEMP 2.3-litre diesel engine. It is robust and durable, yet guarantees performance and comfort while driving, with its four power levels: 120, 140, 160 and 180 hp. All equipped with Multijet 2 technology, each engine has its own special features, such as the design of the turbocharger, pistons and fluid dynamics. Finally, for safe and smooth journeys, the most advanced drive assistance systems (ADAS) come as standard, as well as specific suspension for motorhomes, together with a long list of features to guarantee maximum comfort.

The Fiat Professional Ducato motorhome base is the true “Leader in Freedom”, with an extraordinary track record of international awards.

Fiat Professional has a dedicated team with a profound knowledge of the world of Recreational Vehicles, as “certified” by the “Fiat Professional For Recreational Vehicles” logo. The brand is also highly specialized in terms of products and services for the motorhome owners, thus guaranteeing maximum flexibility and freedom for its customers.
