Fiat Ducato Overview

The Fiat Ducato is classed as a large van and is produced by the Italian auto-mobile manufacturer Fiat. This vehicle is the exact same as the Citroen Relay and the Peugeot Boxer, just sold under the different brands. On the European continent, this is the most commonly used vehicle as a motor-home. This van is not so popular in the UK compared with competitors like Ford Transit and VW Transporter. This van is comfortable and has a wide range of different engines but can be expensive compared with the versions made at the same factory, e.g. the Citroen Relay.

Fiat Ducato History

The first generation (1981-93) Ducato was produced in 1981 and had a wide selection of engine choices and load capacities. The different models available were named by the load they could carry, e.g. Ducato 13 (1.3 tons). This vehicle stayed in production for around 13 years due to its popularity. As the previous model was starting to look dated compared with a lot of their competitors, they designed the second generation Ducato (1994-2006) which was first produced in 1994. The new design met the Euro 3 compliance standards and was well designed. In 2003 it had a bit of a makeover which mainly affected changes to the body work and the range of available engines. The third generation version (2006 - present) is the current model in production and is still available in many forms, from transporting people to transporting goods.

Fuel Economy

The earlier versions had 1.8 and 2.0 petrol engines and 1.9, 2.5 and 2.8 diesel engines. The latest generation Ducato is only available in diesel engines: 2.0, 2.2 and 2.3. There is also a 3.0 CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) engine available, which is the most economical of the engine range. The diesel engines are a better choice than the petrol, economically speaking.


The earlier versions had 4-speed automatic and 5-speed manual gearboxes available. The latest models are 6-speed manual gearboxes. Have a look at the Fiat gearbox section to find your gearbox parts.
