    Fiat has unveiled the Ducato 4x4 Expedition at the Düsseldorf Caravan Salon in Germany.

    Created by Fiat Professional, the one-off model is based on the long-wheelbase Ducato Camper Van and features a two-tone exterior with auxiliary LED lights, an increased ride height and off-road tires. The van also has a front skid plate, a winch and a roof rack.

    The interior goes in a different direction as it has a "lounge-like atmosphere" with leather seats, a retractable table and two flat screen televisions. Other highlights include high-end cabinetry, a cleverly hidden cook top and a make shiftbed.

    Fiat didn't have much to say about performance specifications but confirmed the van has a 2.3-liter Multijet II engine that develops 150 PS (110 kW). It sends power to the ground via a permanent all-wheel drive system developed by Dangel

    I think it looks the business. Would be interested to see if it makes the showroom but unlikely to see it happening.

    Both Mercedes and Ford have 4 * 4 versions of their equivalent van so Fiat are perhaps a bit behind the curve.

    fiat have had 4x4 vans around for years .
    even the old talbot etc could be got with the dangel 4x4.
    used to see loads of them in maroc years ago.
    the iveco daily sort of took over .
