Documents seen by CarAdvice reveal Fiat Chrysler Australia has homologated a 206kW/342Nm 3.6-litre V6-powered version of the Freemont for our market, and we understand the engine will be paired with all-wheel-drive underpinnings in the upcoming off-road-inspired Freemont Cross variant.
The front grille and fog light surrounds, headlight and tail-light frames and 19-inch alloy wheels of the Fiat Freemont Cross score a black finish, while platinum chrome highlights embrace the front bumper insert, side skirts, roof bars and rear underbody protection panel.
Unique interior details include black leather upholstery with sports mesh inserts and light grey stitching, and liquid metal coloured trim across the dashboard, instrument cluster, centre console, door panels and steering wheel.
The highly specified Fiat Freemont Cross comes standard with keyless entry with push-button start, heated and folding side mirrors, 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system with satellite navigation, DVD player and SD card slot, Bluetooth connectivity, reversing camera, and a premium Alpine audio system with six-speakers, a 368-watt amplifier and a subwoofer.
The driver’s seat features 10-way electric adjustment, the front passenger seat can be folded completely down, and folding the second- and third-row seats forward opens up almost 1500 litres of load space. Fiat says there’s also 140L of stowage space in the Freemont Cross’ 20 storage compartments.
More details will be released closer to the launch of the Fiat Freemont Cross later this year.
