Inspired by Greek mythology and exclusive to the Algerian market, the Fiat Titano is lauded for its off-road ability and payload capacity. Here are details on the one-tonne bakkie that arrives sharing Peugeot Landtrek DNA. One-Tonne Fiat Titano Arrives Sharing Peugeot Landtrek DNA
“The introduction of the Fiat Titano in Algeria marks a significant milestone for Stellantis. With the objective of catering to the varied needs of our customers, with this new vehicle, we expand our range of mobility solutions into the emerging entry-level pick-up segment. This reaffirms our commitment to strengthening our leadership in the light commercial vehicle (LCV) market within the region.” – Mr Samir Cherfan, Chief Operating Officer Stellantis Middle East & Africa
Despite a reveal of the Titano, which came much sooner than expected, the automotive conglomerate hasn’t unveiled much regarding the Titano bakkie. Speculation suggests that a full reveal of the Titano may come sometime next year. Powering the muscular bakkie, offered in single-cab and double-cab configuration, is a 1,9-litre turbodiesel engine producing 110 kW and 350 N.m, affixed to a six-speed manual transmission. The powertrain configuration is purposed to provide a powerful driving experience accentuated by the bakkie’s towing and 1 210 kg payload capacity.
The Titano features the same proportions as the Peugeot Landtrek and will be built alongside the Peugeot-badged bakkie in Uruguay ahead of local production in 2026. Earlier this year, Stellantis confirmed that the Landtrek would be produced locally, and seeing as the Titano is its rebadged self, it could mean that the Titano might be produced locally alongside future Landtrek models too. Stellantis is planning to produce complete knockdown kits of an undisclosed bakkie model, which may very well be the Titano model, but for now remains speculatory.
