Dear Vansdirect - Pick-up for personal use

Dear Vansdirect - Pick-up for personal use

Dear Vansdirect,


I am looking for a new double-cab pick-up for personal use, as it's time to upgrade from my ten year old Mitsubishi L200. I'd be happy with another Mitsubishi L200 or something similar, but want it equipped with all of the bells and whistles without spending an arm and a leg, not asking for much I know Would need to be a good off-roader as I regularly take the family on day trips, as well as being able to be capable of towing a small caravan with ease. I will need an automatic transmission and would also like to add a sports bar if possible?


Looking forward to hearing from you.





Dear Vansdirect

Earlier this month Barry got in touch to search for a pick-up for personal use, in particular on camping trips with the family and he also mentioned some pretty specific requirements. At Vansdirect, our new van experts have 20 years of experience in the new van and pick-up market and here's what we come up with.


Dear Barry,


We'd be delighted to help you out with your search for a new pick-up and think we have something that meets your requirements if you'd like to take a look at let us know what you think.


The pick-up we would suggest as a perfect fit for the requirements of you and your family would be the Fiat Fullback Cross 180ps Automatic pick-up. You mentioned that you'd be happy with a Mitsubishi L200 or similar and that's exactly what you'll get from the Fiat Fullback which is based on the same platform as the Mitsubishi L200, bringing with it an excellent reputation.


You mentioned that you'd like a model with 'all of the bells and whistles', well we don't think this will disappoint. The Fiat Fullback Cross is right at the top of the Fiat Fullback range and as such is loaded with standard features, including dual zone climate control, 7.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system, soft opening tailgate, rear view camera, 17-inch alloy wheels and locking rear differential just to name a few. You can see the full spec here, which also interestingly includes a Sports bar which you also mentioned.


Based on the Mitsubishi L200 as previously mentioned, the Fiat Fullback is renowned for off-road ability, whilst towing capacity standards at 3.1-tonnes, which should be more than sufficient to tow a small caravan and kit for your trips.


Finally, you also mentioned not wanting to pay an arm and a leg for a pick-up, at Vansdirect we have Fiat Fullback Cross pick-ups available from £205pm+vat if this is within your price range? If so, we can deliver the new pick-up in as little as 10 working days dependent on the model, so you won't need to wait long to get your hands on it!


If you're interested and would like a quote tailored to your requirements, or if you'd like to find out about any of our other pick-ups, simply fill in a contact form or call us on 0800 169 69 95 for a friendly chat regarding all of your new van needs.


Let us know what you think


King Regards
