Called the 4X4 Expedition, the concept makes the most of the Ducato’s space, both inside and out, with an array of equipment designed for getting to remote camping sites (and ensuring some creature comforts once there).
Guard-arch protectors have been fitted to complement the new mud-terrain tyres and off-road wheels. The Expedition also gets tow hooks, a winch and numerous roof-mounted spotlights.
The roof also carries half-a-dozen fuel jerry cans (which could be switched for water, of course), a couple of spare tyres and a pair of recovery road tracks.
A permanent 4WD system from Dangel ensures the ‘4X4’ badge isn’t just for show, with power reaching all four wheels from the Ducato’s 2.3 litre turbo-diesel engine producing 112kW.
There’s no roughing it once the campers arrive at their destination, however, with the interior boasting a flat screen television, air conditioning, a folding double bed and a kitchenette with sink and cooktop.
As with most campervans, the front seats swivel to become lounge chairs for the folding dining table, with the back seat already in place for fellow diners.
Fiat describes its creation as “perfect for sporty, adventurous customers who want to go off the beaten track.”
