facebook twitter google+ emailAfter 12 months that saw a number of new vans and pick ups launched, things calm down a bit in 2017 Recent months have seen a bumper crop of new vans and pick up trucks launched in the UK. With the enforcement of the latest Euro 6 emissions standard now in force, van and pick up truck makers have updated their ranges accordingly, and the majority of those updates happened durring 2016.We saw new models in the shape of the Citroen Dispatch, Peugeot Expert and ProAce trio launched, while the Ford Transit was updated with new engines to keep it competitive. The Fiat Talento joined the Trafic and Vivaro twins, while Fiat also entered the pickup sector with the Mitsubishi L200 based Fullback. Best panel vans to buy nowOther pick ups launched in 2016 included the new V6 diesel powered Amarok, while the Isuzu D MAX was given a chunky makeover in the shape of the AT35 Arctic Trucks conversion.But that was 2016 what’s new in the van and pickup market in 2017. Well, our A Z round up gives you the inside line on what to expect from the commercial vehicle world over the coming months.The new vans and pick ups going on sale in 2017Fiat Image 2 of 23The major launch for 2016 was the Fiat Fullback pickup truck, a lightly reskinned version of the Mitsubishi L200, while the Talento mid sized van also debuted. That model is a rebadged Master, and replaced the ageing Scudo, which itself was part of a joint partnership with PSA Peugeot Citroen.For 2017, Fiat Professional is concentrating on offering competitive pricing on its entire range, as the line up was updated with more efficient Euro 6 engines last year. Fiat is also attempting to promote its sister brand within the Fiat Chrysler group, Ram. The firm’s pickup trucks are already big sellers in the US, but the Ram brand is unlikely to make it to the right hand drive UK market, unless demand grows.Ford Image 3 of 23While recent headlines from the US revealed that the Transit will be getting hybrid drive technology by 2020, the UK’s best selling van isn’t standing still in the meantime. Ford has revised the rear suspension to improve the Transit’s driving characteristics, while a new auto gearbox has been added to the 2.0 litre diesel.The Transit Custom Sportedition is now offered in more body styles than before, while the Transit Custom Colour Edition models offer car like personalisation touches.Elsewhere, there’s a facelifted Transit Courier in the pipeline that’s likely to benefit from Ford’s latest infotainment system seen in the Mondeo and Focus, while a new small van based on the all new Fiesta will be revealed later in the year.Great Wall Image 6 of 23One of the more interesting developments in the van market is the arrival of truck maker MAN to the party. The German firm is part of the VW Group it was taken over in 2012 and initially it will be selling the TGE, a rebadged version of the new VW Crafter that’s launching in 2017. This will compete against trucking rival Iveco and its Daily large van. You might wonder why it’s expanding into this sector, but the firm’s 24 hour service and maintenance centres for its trucks will be available to van users, which is an attractive benefit to businesses. However, there’s no official word on whether MAN will start selling large vans in the UK as part of its expansion.Mercedes Image 14 of 23The big news for Mercedes in 2016 was its entry into the pickup sector with the X Class. While we saw a set of chunky looking concepts towards the end of 2016,

the real thing will be unveiled towards the end of this year, before going on sale in December.Like other new pickups, the X Class uses tried and tested technology, as it’ll be based on the latest Nissan Navara. However, we can expect the X Class to have a very Mercedes esque feel inside, with a classy interior that will share much with the firm’s GL branded SUVs and crossovers.Elsewhere, the van range sees a few updates. The Citan small van is expected to get a minor facelift this year, while the Vito continues unchanged, although a new Vito Taxi has been announced for Hackney Carriage licence holders. The larger Sprinter was updated in 2016 with new suspension, while we may see a van concept similar to the Vision Van study seen in September 2016, which will point the way for an all new Sprinter due in 2018.Mitsubishi Image 16 of 23Nissan’s modest range of commercial vehicles continues unchanged in 2017. The big news in 2016 was the launch of the NV300, which is essentially the Trafic with Nissan badges, in the same way that the NV400 is a Master. Elsewhere, the NV200 is a pure Nissan production, while the all electric e NV200 will gain some of the added range and efficiency benefits first seen in the Leaf electric hatchback.The Navara pickup continues unchanged, although it will face even tougher competition when steals back some technology with its rebadged Alaskan pickup, as well as the Nissan sourced Mercedes X Class.PSA Peugeot CitroenThe big news for the French firm occurred last year, with the introduction of the new Citroen Dispatch and Peugeot Expert, two models that set new standards for technology and comfort in the van sector.This year should see the introduction of a replacement for the Citroen Berlingo and Peugeot Partner pairing, two of the most popular and long running small vans on sale. While the Dispatch and Expert share technology with the ProAce, the Berlingo and Partner are being developed in conjunction with General Motors, and in the UK the new model will replace the Combo.All three will get the same revised 1.6 BlueHDi diesels found in the larger Dispatch/Expert, while a revised platform will see increased payload capacity and improved driving dynamics. As before, Citroen and Peugeot will also produce MPV versions of these models with up to seven seats. Expect to see the newcomers towards the end of 2017.Elsewhere, the larger, Fiat Ducato based Citroen Relay/Peugeot Boxer continue with updated Euro 6 engines introduced last year, while the compact Nemo/Bipper pairing will remain in production for the foreseeable future,
