Additional styling details are hard to make out but you can see door-mounted external mirrors, sloping roofline and vertical tail-lights.
Not much is known about the new model but Fiat's five-year plan calls for the automaker to launch a new compact bakkie in South Amerca in 2015. The model was absent from Ram's five-year plan though the company launched a re-badged Strada in Mexico as the Ram 700.
