Giant van joins Iveco Daily range
IVECO HAS ADDED A GIANT SEVEN-TONNE GVM VERSION OF its Daily Van to its New Zealand light commercial vehicle range.
The 70C uses a Euro 6 version of the Iveco 3.0-litre turbodiesel, developing 185kw of maximum power and 430Nm of peak torque.
It achieves the Euro 6 emission standard with a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system using Adblue, and the van has a 25-litre Adblue tank.
The 70C has a massive 20 cubic metres of cargo capacity and rides on a 4100mm wheelbase. It has an overall length of 7619mm, and a height of 3050mm. It can tow a 3.5-tonne trailer and has a payload of 3.9 tonnes.
The cargo area floor is made of ribbed steel and the interior walls are reinforced. A single sliding side door is standard but dual doors are an option, and the barn-style rear doors open to a maximum of 270 degrees
The big van, which Iveco says is the largest van sold in New Zealand, is the first of several Euro 6 Dailys that will join the local range over the next few months.
Iveco says all 2017 model Daily Euro 5 and Euro 6 vans and cab/chassis use almost one percent less fuel than their predecessors.
That’s been achieved by adopting lower viscosity synthetic oils, engineering tighter construction tolerances and by fitting low friction bearings and pinion seals.
On the safety front, Iveco’s Lane Departure Warning System has been introduced as an added-cost option on 4x2 models. Using radar, the system warns the driver if the vehicle is moving from its lane, reducing the chance of collision.
All 4x2 models continue to feature four airbags, and the Iveco ESP9 safety package which includes Electronic Brake force Distribution, Electronic Stability Program, Anti Slip Regulator and a host of additional driver aids is also fitted.
Iveco engineers have also introduced tougher seat material and lamp compounds for increased durability.
In the cabin, there’s a revised instrument cluster, a standard top-of-dashboard open storage area with USB charger and further options including an inductive charger. New door panel lower drawers are standard.
Noise in the cabin has been lowered by three decibels by fitting improved soundproofing.
New model Dailys have a revised grille design that features horizontal bars. The grilles come standard with chrome highlights, and black is available at no added cost.
Revised twin wheel hub covers for the 35C and 50C van and cab/chassis have also been introduced to further lift looks, and a selection of aluminium wheels and covers are available on certain models.
On the 3.5-tonne and 5.2-tonne Daily vans there’s a new 13.4 cubic metre volume option that has been achieved by retaining the 3520mm wheelbase but increasing the height to 2100mm. There’s now a greater availability of airbag rear suspension on Daily models.
Standard across the range is Iveco’s multimedia system, Iveconnect which comprises a seven-inch colour screen display, Bluetooth connectivity, Usb/aux-in media transfer, voice recognition and navigation software.
As an added cost option, Iveconnect can be specified with a rear camera and can be set-up to control phone calls and the audio system from the steering wheel.
