Fullback will be available with a 2.4-litre aluminium turbo diesel engine with two power outputs - 150hp (113kW) or 180hp (133kW) - combined with an original six-speed manual gearbox or five-speed automatic transmission with sports mode.
The aluminium turbocharged and intercooled diesel engine with variable valve timing is one of the most efficient and powerful in the market and the newly developed diesel engine features greatly improved fuel consumption due to a low compression ratio that raises combustion efficiency.

Traction and Driveability
All 4X4 versions are equipped with an electronic selector that makes it possible to engage the all-wheel drive in “part time” or “full time” mode.
“Part time” mode is available on SX versions and has three driving positions: “2H” (optimal roads) with rear-wheel drive; “4H”, selectable for speeds up to 60mph, distributes the traction to all four drive wheels for safer driving on slippery or rough roads; “4L” provides low-range gears for extreme off-road conditions.
“Full time” mode is instead available on the top-of-the-range LX versions, which is characterized by a central differential, supported by three electronically controlled clutches that manage torque transmission to the wheels in real time based on road conditions and speed. There are four driving positions.
In addition to the “2H” and “4H” positions mentioned above, “4HLc” locks the central differential, distributing torque equally to the front and rear wheels to improve traction on snowy, sandy or muddy roads. Finally, the fourth position “4LLc” not only blocks the central differential but also engages low-range gears for more torque on extreme off-road trails.
The suspensions of Fullback feature sophisticated double wishbone architecture with anti-roll bar on the front axle whereas the rigid rear axle has multi-layer leaf springs to maximize reliability and robustness.
