Intended for the Fiat, the Sentiero by Dragos Prodan, a student designer from George Enescu University in Iasi (Romania), is a compact utility vehicle essentially designed for the European market. Taking a cue from current design language of Fiat as well as Italian design for styling, the pickup truck seems to go hand in hand with the Fiat brand by complementing other vehicles from the company’s lineup. The concept vehicle boasts a drivetrain with three running modes, 2WD mode, Auto mode and Lock mode, and provides various storage spaces, together with the main bed at the rear, lockable storage compartments in front of the back wheels and different sealed compartments in both the rear of the bed and in the tailgate.
The Sentiero generates power from a 3.0 liter V6 diesel engine, offering 250 hp, with a payload capacity of 820 kg (1807 lbs) and comes pre-wired for trailer brake controller, which is capable of towing up to 2400 kg (5291 lbs). Moreover, the utility truck features an integrated class III hitch, while a closed box frame with internal strength steel frame stiffener, electronic brake distribution and brake assistance makes the active and passive safety systems.
