The Daily 4x4 is a purpose built off road, light commercial truck which features front, centre and rear differential locks, with a choice of cabchassis or dualcab. Muddy tracks, rough ground, steep slopes and slippery roads are all no obstacle for the new Daily 4x4, which is designed to do the toughest jobs under the harshest conditions.
Built from a solid steel truck chassis, the frame of the Daily 4x4 is built tough for tough conditions. The beams and cross members are made from high strength tubular steel (Fe490), with a C section of 5 mm. The result is a rigid structure capable of withstanding the torsional stress and fatigue typical of extreme off road applications. The 3.4 metre wheelbase gives ample ground clearance to drive with confidence in off road conditions.
The Daily 4x4 travels over the roughest roads with the same level of comfort as its road going counterpart. The vehicle is designed for easy cab access and maximum protection, internally there is plenty of space and numerous storage compartments and pockets. The driver's seats offers three adjustments plus lumbar support, and seating position is similar to a car, with the added benefit of superior visibility. The gear lever is located in the middle of the dashboard, while the range selection levers are located on the cab floor to facilitate easy movement across the cab. The switches for the three differential locks and the PTOs are positioned within reach on the centre console.
The Daily 4 x 4 can deliver abundant power and torque under tough conditions, and is renowned for its particularly wide torque band. The Daily 4x4 comes equipped with an IVECO FIC 3 litre 4 cylinder turbo diesel engine. This engine delivers 170hp and a massive 400 Nm of torque, which is available even at low engine speeds to ensure driving comfort and reduced fuel consumption. The IVECO FIC engine utilises Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) in order to meet Euro 5/ADR 80-03 emissions compliance. This offers the added benefit of exceptional fuel efficiency while minimising the environmental impact.
The Daily 4x4 incorporates permanent four wheel drive with front, centre and rear differential locks. Torque distribution is optimised to give the best possible grip on all types of terrain. With all differential locks engaged, all wheels, front, rear and on either side, are locked to the same speed. An electronic control unit linked to electro-hydraulic actuators controls the manual engagement and disengagement of the three diff-locks in sequence, selecting them automatically on the basis of speed to guarantee maximum safety and traction. The vehicle can be equipped with four Power Take-Off's (PTOs) to drive external equipment via hydraulic pumps and cardan shafts.
