The forthcoming 2019 Fiat Fullback Cross is a special edition of a popular Fullback pickup truck. It will ride on its second generation and some new changes are likely. This mid-size, body-on-frame pickup offers a nice-looking exterior that looks stylish and sporty. Unlike the regular Fullback, Fullback Cross comes with the only four-door option.
The 2019 model will get some interior and exterior changes for sure. Moreover, if this pickup looks familiar to you, there is a reason behind that. Whatsoever, Fullback Cross is basically a retuned version of Mitsubishi L200 or Mitsubishi Triton. Moreover, Fullback is using the same engine as L200 and much more.
2019 Fiat Fullback Cross exterior looks more attractive than the base one model
The exterior of the 2019 Fiat Fullback Cross really looks sporty and aggressive. The new model will look even better thanks to the latest changes, but those changes are minor. A new bespoke grille looks perfect and is done in matte black. The same theme continues to the matte black side steps, side mirrors, fender flares and even door handles. Furthermore, window trims and 17-inch wheels are also getting the same matte blackwork.
This comes as a perfect combination with the regular Colosseum Grey exterior paint. Mentioned side steps are all-new and 2019 Fullback Cross now comes with a new sport bar that runs over the cargo bed. That bar is made from plastic and it gives this pickup sleeker look. Unlike the regular model that comes with two-door configuration, Cross model offers only a four-door body style.
2019 Fiat Fullback Cross will still use a 7-inch touchscreen
The 2019 Fiat Fullback Cross will come with small interior improvements. The latest addition is a new chrome kick plates and all-weather floor mats. Besides that, the interior will stay intact.
The cabin offers plenty of high-tech and safety systems. Trailer stability assist is new, just like the lane departure warning. Cruise control is standard now and seven airbags are in the offer like on the previous models. Leather seats are optional, the same stands for the leather shift knob and steering wheel.
Infotainment system will get an upgrade but it will still use a 7-inch touchscreen. Automatic dual-zone climate control is optional, Bluetooth and USB ports are standard. Furthermore, backup camera and navigation are made standard now.
