Fiat Professional Talento van now available with new six-speed DCT automatic transmission

The new Fiat Professional Talento van is now available with an automatic, six-speed Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) with the latest 2.0-litre EcoJet engine.

The introduction of the DCT gearbox adds 40 new versions to the current line-up, from freight transport and an N1 people carrier to a motorhome base: a vehicle truly able to meet every need.

For maximum driving flexibility, the new six-speed transmission runs in fully automatic or sequential modes. It reduces driver stress, and optimises fuel consumption in real-world usage, especially when driving in the city, where the driver has to deal with heavy traffic and make frequent stops and starts.

The DCT automatic is available with the EcoJet engines with 145 hp/350 Nm of torque and 170 hp/380 Nm with E6d-Temp homologation, or can be paired with the 120-hp 2.0 EcoJet with 320 Nm of torque.

In every variant, the engine unit is equipped with a variable geometry turbocharger to ensure a smoother drive and a more flexible engine even at low speeds, resulting in fuel savings in the real-world use cycle.  

Talento is available in all body types – low- or high-roof van, six-seater N1 people carrier, double cab and flatbed – and offers two lengths, two heights and two different wheelbases. With its combination of all these elements, the model is the answer to many transportation needs – from 5.2 to 8.6 m3, gross vehicle weight of 2.80 to over 3 tons, and a payload of up to 1.3 tons.
