litre diesel V6
The Fiat Sentiero is the work of Dragos Prodan, a 2009
industrial design graduate of George Enescu University
in Iasi, Romania. The vehicle was developed as part of
his final year project.
The concept was developed for the Fiat brand as Dragos
felt that a utility vehicle such as the Sentiero would
be a natural progression to the company's line up and
compliment the other vehicles on offer.
The styling was based on both Fiat's current design language
and also Italian design in general. The vehicle needed
to be practical, functional and perhaps most important
for a concept, Innovative. Dragos also wanted to give
the concept a strong personality and a striking shape.
The Fiat Sentiero concept is a compact sized pick-up truck
which is primarily designed for the European markets.
The vehicle offers several different cargo areas. There
is a the obvious main bed at the rear, but the concept
also features lockable storage compartments just forward
of the rear wheels, and other sealed compartments in both
the rear of the bed and in the tailgate.
The drivetrain has 3 running modes:
-2WD mode - traction sent only to the front wheels
-Auto mode - auto engaging the rear axle if needed
-Lock mode - power is evenly distributed between the front
and rear wheels.
The proposed engine for the Sentiero is a 3.0 litre, v6
diesel engine, offering 250 hp. The truck can tow up to
2400 kg (5291 lbs), and a payload capacity of 820 kg (1807
lbs). It is prewired for trailer brake controller, and
features an integrated class III hitch.
Active and passive safety systems of the Fiat Sentiero
concept include a closed box frame with internal strength
steel frame stiffener, electronic brake distribution and
