Daily loads up options
Award-winning Iveco Daily range expands with over 20 new variants unveiled for Australian buyers
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.
