Fiat Professional

Conversion programme is Ready for Professionals

Choice list is one of the largest for variety of wheelbase weights and options to match the job requirement

Fiat Professional can provide more than just a panel van. The award-winning Ducato is now available in a range of factory-approved conversions.


The vehicles can be ordered from the Ducato price list at any Fiat Professional retailer.


Conversions are carried out at the factory, either in-house or using local, approved converters.


Called ‘Ready for Professionals’, the programme was launched to meet growing customer demand for officially converted Fiat Ducato-based vans and tippers.


The range of conversions available includes three different wheel-base options (3,450mm, 3,800mm and 4,035mm), chassis cab and double cab, and with hundreds of possible customisations.


“We firmly believe this adds a string to our bow, in terms of offering a complete range in the Ducato segment for fleets and small businesses,” says Allan Newman, product manager for the Ready for Professionals programme.


“We are looking forward to working with new clients who want to consider Fiat Professional for this type of product. We are tried and tested with our ambulance supply and firmly believe Fiat Professional is a serious contender to cater for everyone’s needs. We can accommodate everyone’s requests as one brand.”


The scheme provides a simplified approach for the end customer.

Fleets and small businesses can order the exact vehicle they require and it will arrive fully transformed, significantly reducing the timescales which would ordinarily be required for additional movements and further transformation needs, post arrival.

All Ready for Professional vehicles come with complete peace of mind to the customer as they are all covered under the manufacturer’s warranty.


“We are quite comprehensive. Our price list is one of the largest in terms of scope of wheelbase, weights and options. It makes it easier for the customer to match their vehicle choice to their specific mission,” adds Newman.


Generally, the lead times for converted vehicles are in line with Fiat Professional’s standard timescales.


Fiat Professional retailers can also service and repair any element of the conversions.


An extensive range of MultiJet II 2.3-litre engines – 130-, 150- and 180hp – ensures there is a power unit for every purpose.


Customers can choose either a six-speed manual or six-speed Comfort-Matic manual robotised gearbox with two operating modes (sequential or automatic).


Optional cab features include heated and sprung seats, two-seater bench with folding table, tachograph, automatic climate control, and refrigerated compartment, while outside there are LED daytime running lights, retractable headlight washers, front fog lights and electric folding mirrors.


Safety features can include Hill Descent Control, Lane Departure Warning, Rain and Dusk Sensor, Tyre Pressure Monitoring, Electronic Stability Control, High Beam Recognition, Load Adaptive Control and Roll Over Mitigation.

“We firmly believe this adds a string to our bow, in terms of offering a complete range in the Ducato segment for fleets and small businesses”
