The first shipments of the new 2019 Fiat 500X have arrived on U.S. soil at the Port of Baltimore in Maryland—with more on the way.
“Our first batch of new Italian-designed, fun-to-drive 2019 Fiat 500X small crossovers are just starting to arrive,” said Steve Beahm, head of passenger car brands – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT – North America. “Customers will soon be able to experience and enjoy the all-new turbocharged 1.3-liter engine with class-leading torque, standard all-wheel-drive capability and a host of new safety and technology features.”
Manufactured in Italy at the Melfi assembly plant, the vehicle is powered by an all-new, 1.3-liter turbocharged engine producing 177 hp and 210 foot-pounds of torque with engine stop-start (ESS) technology mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission.
In addition to new front and rear fascia designs, the new small FIAT crossover offers nearly 70 safety and security features including Adaptive Cruise Control and Front Park Assist. It is available in three model configurations—Pop, Trekking and Trekking Plus.
