Fiat Fullback: What does its name mean?

The new Fiat Fullback is a new pickup truck based on the Mitsubishi L200/Triton that will be sold in the Europe, Middle East and Africa, but what does its name mean?

According to Fiat Chrysler, the Fullback name comes “the key position in rugby or American football — the last man in the line of defence and also a defender in attack — which denotes a player who is capable of dealing with any situation”.

FCA says that the Fullback is “ready to take on any challenge”. Whilst clearly designed for practical, load carrying reasons, is also “capable of meeting the needs for everyday life and leisure”.
