There’s never been a greater incentive to upgrade to Australia’s best-selling European light truck* following the release of IVECO’s work-ready, Limited Edition 45C17 Daily.
Limited to 100 examples, the passenger car licence Limited Edition Daily is value-packed, featuring a heavy-duty, Australian-made aluminium tray body, tow bar package, nudge bar, bonnet protector and floor mats.
As an added bonus, Limited Edition Daily models are backed by a comprehensive 5 year / 200,000 kilometre extended warranty and come with 5 years’ free scheduled servicing, while a complimentary 36-piece GearWrench socket set to the value of $349 including GST is also included.
The locally-built tray body features generous internal dimensions of 4,050 mm L x 2,057 mm W with removable drop sides and tailgate courtesy of quick-lock hinges, to make the most of the 45C17’s 4,495kg GVM.
Other benefits of the tray include a window protector and tube headboard, internal load restraint points, front corner step and sturdy rope/strap rails.
Buyers who would like to further tailor the tray to even better suit their application can choose from a range of additional accessories at extra cost, these include ladder racks, a variety of toolbox options and even a soap and water dispenser.
As well as delivering the convenience of a work-ready vehicle and the value-added elements, the cab chassis itself is extremely well specified and includes IVECO’s powerful yet efficient 3.0 litre turbodiesel engine producing 170hp and 430Nm as well as the market-leading Hi-Matic 8-speed full automatic transmission.
On the safety front the Daily fares considerably better than its work-ready, cab over competitors.
Fitted as standard are driver, passenger and dual curtain airbags, front and rear disc brakes with ABS, Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, Electronic Stability Program, Anti Slip Regulator, Hill Holder and Daytime Running Lamps.
Driver appointments and comfort features are also plentiful. The driver is treated to an ISRI air suspension seat with arm rest, while the two front seat passengers receive a body contoured bench seat with headrests.
Further aiding the driving experience is automatic climate control, cruise control and the IVECONNECT multimedia system with GPS that can be operated through steering wheel-mounted controls. For additional cost, IVECONNECT can also be equipped with a reversing camera with camera positioning decided by the customer to best suit the intended application – if a camera is not required, a reversing buzzer comes as standard fitment.
IVECO Australia Marketing Manager, Darren Swenson, said the Limited Edition Daily was a value-packed proposition for buyers.
“For a comparable price to a dual cab 4×4, the Limited Edition Daily can also be driven on a car licence and provides the same car-like driving experience, safety features and convenience while also delivering a far superior payload thanks to a 4,495kg GVM,” Mr Swenson said.
“The locally-made, heavy duty tray has been designed and built with Australian conditions in mind and is ready for the rigours that Aussie ‘tradies’ will no doubt put it through.
“Another attractive feature of the truck is that it’s work-ready and can virtually be driven from the showroom floor to the worksite once registered and insured – there’s no need to wait around for weeks for body fitment via a third party supplier.
“Making an investment in the Limited Edition Daily even more enticing – and virtually risk free – is a comprehensive 5 year / 200,000 kilometre extended factory warranty at no extra cost as well as 5 years’ free scheduled servicing,” he said.
The new Limited Edition Daily is available while stocks last from IVECO Dealers nation-wide for a Recommended Retail Price of $57,950 (inc GST but excluding vehicle on-road costs).
