    Not sure if this has been mentioned already, but I understand a new Fiat Ducato / Peugeot Boxer / Citroen Jumper is in the pipeline for launch later this year.

    Apparently, the headlights are re-styled, lower front is re-designed and includes a completely new dash, as well as new mechanicals. I don't know more details.

    Does anybody have more information?

    I understand that the new Fiat will be only Fiat
    that the new Citroen and Peugeot will be based on Toyota.
    not sure if this is correct.

    Interesting, indeed! Guess we will have to wait to see how it all pans out. :Smile:

    Thanks for the insight, Mike

    The Citroen chevrons were visible under the disguise so I guess it will be business as usual for Fiat/Peugeot/Citroen.

    Looks like it's got a black bone in it's mouth. Another dog?

    May not be true as Toyota don't do 3.5 tonne+ vans as far as I know. They make smaller ones and this is maybe where things may be "joined up"

    I always enjoy the failure of the latest new design when compared to the current model.
    The current "new" Yaris isn't a patch on the design of the previous model.....and Im pleased to say this new Fiat looks a bit of a dogs dinner compared to the existing model.

    Designers.......some of them should be shot !

    My local dealer, Dyce Caravans informed me of the facelift model for 2015. Given that I will probably buy new and on a Fiat chassis because I want an auto box, does anyone have an idea of how much more is added to the cost when a facelift model is released?

    If it was yellow it would look like a menacing wasp

    I don't like wasps either

    Not much of a change as far as I can see. Did make me go off and look at YouTube though.

    This us the old "Born to be a motorhome" promo... [ame]http://youtu.be/PXF5SmylexM[/ame]

    Do you remember the old saying... Built by robots, driven by idiots
