Fiat has chosen Paris to present two important innovations to the Freemont range – the new 2.4 litre petrol engine with 170 HP and the shiny-new Park Avenue trim level – which will contribute to consolidating the excellent commercial results which have been achieved until now. In only one year of sales, the first Fiat to spring from the partnership with Chrysler Group has collected over 39,000 orders across Europe, ranking sixth in its category in EU27+Efta (YTD 07/2012) and becoming the seven-seater most sold in Italy.
Available from the forthcoming winter, Park Avenue with FWD and AWD is the top of the Freemont family range in terms of contents and style. With a unique, exclusive design, the new version has unique chrome details and 19″ chrome-plated alloy rims on the outside. Features designed to enhance comfort and travelling pleasure are found inside: automatic three-zone climate control, cruise control, heated leather seats (the driver’s seat is also electrically adjustable), keyless entry/go system, rear parking sensors and electrically folding rear-view mirrors.
With its elegant appearance and full equipment, the Park Avenue trim level offers the cream of state-of-the-art infotainment devices as standard: 8.4″ touch screen satellite navigation system with maps together with DVD player and SD slot, Bluetooth connection, rear parking camera and Premium sound system with 6 premium speakers, 368 Watt amplifier and subwoofer. All these features make this version truly unique and exclusive.
In a nutshell, Fiat Freemont Park Avenue is ideal for customers who care for details and want a distinctive car. The new version is equipped with 2.0 MultiJet 2 170 HP engine, FWD/AWD with automatic transmission, and the brand-new 2.4 litre engine with 170 HP and automatic transmission.
The second innovation in the Freemont range is the introduction of the brilliant 2.4 litre 170 HP petrol engine combined with a six-speed automatic transmission which will complete the portfolio also for the European markets where petrol engines are in demand. Performance is remarkable: aluminium crankcase with variable double valve timing (VVT technology) allowing to reach a power of 170 HP at 6000 rpm, 220 Nm of torque for brilliant, always pleasant driving.
Park Avenue and the 2.4 litre 170 HP petrol engine are the additional strings to the bow of a model that provided the right answers to the needs of modern families and motorists seeking a roomy, comfortable, versatile car for dynamic everyday driving and for weekend leisure. The Fiat Freemont is all the cars you want. Its multifarious soul has led it to win over new customer types from other segments – station wagon, minivan and crossover – combining flexibility and functionality with a distinctive, original style. With all this and more, all trim levels and engine versions are very competitively priced.
Today, the Fiat Freemont range counts four trim levels (Freemont, Urban, Lounge and Park Avenue), two drives (FWD or active “on demand” AWD), two transmissions (manual or automatic, both with six speeds) and four engine versions: in addition to the brand-new 2.4 litre 170 HP petrol with automatic transmission, the 2.0 MultiJet 2 140 HP and 170 HP engines with variable geometry and six-speed manual gearbox and two AWD versions available with MultiJet 2.0 170 HP and the powerful 3.6 litre Chrysler Pentastar. AWD versions fit a new six-speed automatic transmission to ensure excellent performance together with precise and quiet operation for ultimate comfort and drivability.
