Iveco has sig­nalled it has se­ri­ous in­ten­tions for con­tin­ued growth in the Aus­tralian van and light-duty truck mar­kets, fol­low­ing the ad­di­tion of 22 new wheel­base and vol­ume com­bi­na­tions for its award-win­ning range.

Join­ing the van line-up are new 7.3m³, 10.8m³ and 18m³ vol­ume ver­sions of the 35S; while the ranks of higher GVM 50C have been bol­stered with new 9m³ and 10.8m³ vari­ants, bring­ing the to­tal vol­ume op­tions across both the 35S and

50C vans to 12.

The most no­table ad­di­tions, how­ever, have been to Iveco’s cab-chas­sis mod­els across both the sin­gle and dual-cab range.

The car-li­cenced 4,495kg GVM Daily 45C is now avail­able in a choice of five ad­di­tional wheel­bases: 3,000mm, 3,450mm, 4,100mm, 4,350mm and 4,750mm.

Dual-rated (4,495kg and 5,200 kg GVM) 50C mod­els now fea­ture a choice of four new wheel­base op­tions: 3,000mm, 3,450mm, 4,100mm and 4,700mm; while 7,000kg GVM

70C vari­ants gain a fur­ther two wheel­base op­tions: 3,750mm and 4,100mm for a to­tal of 14 wheel­base op­tions.

There’s also good news for pur­chasers of the 50C and 70C dual-cab mod­els with each vari­ant re­ceiv­ing a fur­ther three wheel­base choices.

For the 50C dual cab there’s a new 3,450mm, a 4,100mm and 4,350mm, bring­ing the to­tal choice of wheel­bases to four.

There are also now four wheel­base choices for the 70C dual cab fol­low­ing the ad­di­tion of 4,100mm, 4,350mm and 4,750mm vari­ants – all up there’s now a choice of eight op­tions here.

Aside from the in­tro­duc­tion of the ex­tra vari­ants, a num­ber of fea­tures pre­vi­ously ex­tra cost op­tions are now stan­dard equip­ment.

All new Dai­lys re­ceive Iveco’s top-of-the line safety pack­age ‘ESP 9’, which was pre­vi­ously a cost op­tion. ESP 9 in­cludes sta­bil­ity con­trol, roll-over mit­i­ga­tion, trailer sway mit­i­ga­tion, hill holder, hy­draulic brake as­sist, hy­draulic rear wheel boost, hy­draulic fad­ing com­pen­sa­tion and adap­tive load con­trol.

These fea­tures add to stan­dard ac­tive and pas­sive safety equip­ment such as four-wheel disc brakes with ABS, and four SRS airbags.

In other good news, Iveco’s 3-litre twin-turbo pow­er­plant is now avail­able as a se­lectable op­tion on all van and cab-chas­sis mod­els.

The engine pro­duces an im­pres­sive 205hp / 150kW and 347lb ft / 470Nm of torque.

Sim­i­larly, Iveco’s rear air sus­pen­sion (ECAS) has also be­come a se­lectable op­tion on all mod­els, pro­vid­ing a more com­fort­able ride, in­creas­ing cargo safety for frag­ile loads and al­low­ing the op­er­a­tor to ad­just the height of the load­ing com­part­ment for eas­ier load­ing and un­load­ing.

Specif­i­cally re­lated to van mod­els, the ‘Ive­con­nect’ mul­ti­me­dia sys­tem for the 6.2inch touch-screen is now stan­dard fit­ment. ‘Ive­con­nect’ fea­tures a re­vers­ing cam­era satel­lite nav­i­ga­tion (with truck soft­ware), Blue­tooth and DVD player, all of which can be op­er­ated via in­te­grated steer­ing wheel con­trols.

Slid­ing win­dows are now avail­able (for most mod­els) on driver and pas­sen­ger side doors.

Bulk­head re­moval also be­comes avail­able as an op­tion al­low­ing cus­tomers to more eas­ily in­stall load-rated par­ti­tions to com­ply with Aus­tralian Stan­dards, and al­loy wheels be­come on op­tion on 35S sin­gle-wheel mod­els.

For cab-chas­sis mod­els, there’s the in­tro­duc­tion of an op­tional new ex­pan­sion mo­d­ule which al­lows eas­ier man­age­ment of more in­tri­cate bod­ies and the ve­hi­cles’ power-take-off units.

Iveco Aus­tralia Mar­ket­ing Man­ager Dar­ren Swen­son says the new vari­ants, im­prove­ment of stan­dard equip­ment and more se­lectable op­tions will be well re­ceived by the mar­ket.

“The lat­est ad­di­tions and re­fine­ments made to the van and cab-chas­sis range will fur­ther broaden the ap­peal of the Daily to a wider range of buy­ers, par­tic­u­larly trades­peo­ple and PUD op­er­a­tors,” he says.
