Iveco unveils all-new version of its Daily driver


Iveco will launch the all-new third generation version of its Daily van in June.

The new Daily is still a classic ladder frame-based vehicle, which its makers say ensures strength, flexibility, and long-term durability.

Like its predecessors the Daily is available in van and chassis cab variants and according to its makers has been improved in all areas.

Capacities are up thanks to redesigning the relationship between the van’s wheelbase, overall length, and the length of the cargo bed. The latest Daily comes in 11, 18 and 20 cubic metre variants.

Iveco says that the smallest version beats all rivals for cargo efficiency, while the larger pair are best in class for volume.

Wheelbases have been lengthened and rear overhangs shortened, and all versions up to 3.5 tonnes have gained new front suspension. Non-4WD variants also gain a new rear suspension which drops the rear loading height platform by 55mm.

Engines are also improved, Iveco promising a five per cent cut in fuel consumption over the previous Daily and significant improvement in Total Cost of Ownership.

Occupants have not been forgotten and the cabin has been upgraded with the aim of improving comfort and noise insulation.

The Daily is manufactured in Suzzara, Italy and Valladolid, Spain, and Iveco has recently made significant investments in both plants to upgrade its production line technology.
