IVECO’s latest Daily cab chassis range provides operators with superior power, strength, comfort and payload, making it the perfect tradie or contractor’s truck for those who have outgrown their ute.
A tough C-section steel chassis allows easy fitment of a wide range of bodies, including tray, tipper and service-style bodies, making the Daily extremely versatile. When combined with the range’s 2.4t payload*, 3.5t braked towing capacity and choice of powerful engines, the trip to the work site’s never been easier.
The top of the range 3-litre, twin turbo diesel engine provides market-leading power and torque of 150kW (205hp) and 470Nm, ensuring there’s plenty of grunt on tap to easily handle heavy loads of materials and equipment.
The trucks are available in a choice of smooth-shifting 6-speed manual or new 8-Speed full automatic transmission. The automatic is an industry-leading transmission offering superfast gear changes (200 milliseconds), providing seamless power delivery.
To assist in reducing fuel consumption, the Hi-Matic features both ‘Eco’ and ‘Power’ modes. When Eco is selected, the transmission changes gears at lower rpm, while Power mode holds the vehicle in each gear for longer for even crisper acceleration should you need it.
All IVECO Daily cab chassis feature an abundance of safety equipment so there’s never been a comfier or safer truck to get into after a hard day’s slog. Standard features include disc brakes all round with ABS, four airbags and IVECO’s ‘ESP9’ safety program which includes electronic brake force distribution and many other driving aids.
The Daily’s range of safety equipment is far greater than what’s available in its light duty cab-over truck competitors, and ride, comfort and handling is also far superior. By their very nature, cab over trucks have the driver seated located over the front wheels; this positioning telegraphs bumps and uneven road services directly under them, resulting in a potentially jolting ride, especially when the vehicle is unladen.
On the inside the Daily offers a sophisticated and car-like interior. A high windscreen height offers excellent visibility while the dashboard is intuitive with all dials and controls within arm’s reach. A lower seating position also makes it easy to get in and out of.
Extra comfort for the driver and front passenger comes courtesy of mechanically-suspended seats with multiple adjustments – the range also offers the option of heated driver and passenger seats with three degrees of freedom.
The vehicles’ 4-speaker audio system features FM/AM tuner; CD/mp3 player; USB drive via USB input on the dashboard, AUX input; Bluetooth connectivity and radio and phone controls on the steering wheel. The unit also features an integrated 4x20W amplifier.
If the trade requires a dual cab instead, there are several to choose from in the Daily range, with enough seating to comfortably transport a work crew of six plus the driver. And if a fully enclosed body is needed, there are a wide selection of Daily vans on offer.
The vans boast all the great benefits of the cab chassis range and are available with volume payloads of up to 19.6m³. Choose from three engines, two transmissions, many payload and volume ratings, different wheelbases, single or dual rear wheels and three roof heights. Whatever the trade, there’ll likely be a Daily model to suit.
IVECO is in the midst of a light truck and van runout on MY14 models and is offering great deals on the Daily tradie range including an extended warranty of 1 year for total coverage of 4 Years / 200,000 kilometres.
