The latest generation of Iveco’s light truck off-road weapon, the Daily 4x4, is now available in Australia, introducing a host of performance and comfort gains over its predecessor.
The new Daily 4x4 is available in single and dual cab configuration in a car licence-friendly 4,495kg GVM or no cost optional 5,500kg GVM - both offer a braked towing capacity of up to 3.5t, while payload varies from 2,510kg to 2,800kg depending on the variant selected.
The Daily 4x4 offers the best combination of payload and off-road performance to conquer the toughest conditions. Built on a solid steel truck chassis, it features the performance of a permanent all-wheel drive with three available differential locks (front, rear, and central), 24 forward and 4 reverse gear ratios. There is also the option of selecting the first synchronised reduction (half speed) with the vehicle in motion. The Daily 4x4 is also fitted with parabolic suspension with a live front axle to cushion the shocks of road surfaces. Combined with excellent ground clearance, these features allow the Daily 4x4 to easily handle the toughest terrain.
Thanks to its design, the Daily 4x4 guarantees the performance of a true off-road vehicle with a:
It is available with a 3.4m wheelbase Cab Chassis or Dual Cab, with a 4.495-tonne GVM with axle loads of 2,450kg on the front axle and 3,700kg on the rear axle with an option of 5.5-tonne GVM.
The Daily 4x4 is ideal for use in applications such as:
The new Daily 4x4 is powered by a 3.0-litre direct injection diesel engine with Variable Geometry Turbo for superior power and performance. The engine delivers an impressive 170hp (125kW) of power and 400Nm of torque from a low 1,250 rpm while still meeting the latest Euro 6 emissions standards through EGR+SCR technology. For excellent control off-road, the innovative engine is coupled to Iveco's proven 6-speed synchromesh manual transmission.
The Daily 4x4 incorporates the convenience and added performance of a permanent four-wheel-drive system with the front, centre and rear differential locks. Torque distribution is optimised (32% to the front and 68% to the rear axle) to give the best possible grip on all types of terrain.
With all differential locks engaged, all wheels, front and rear are locked to the same speed and turn in unison delivering outstanding traction. 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 two Power Take-Offs (PTOs) to drive external equipment via hydraulic pumps and cardan shafts making the Daily 4x4 an extremely versatile vehicle.
The 6-speed gearbox (with overdrive in 6th) is coupled to a central transfer box with two reduction stages giving a total of 24 forward speeds, 12 for road/trail use and 12 for off-road use (6x2 + 6x2) plus 4 reverse gears. The broad availability of low range ratios allows the Daily 4x4 to safely negotiate the steepest of terrains.
The first synchronised reduction gear can be selected (half speed) with the vehicle in motion. The second reduction stage is dedicated to extreme off-road use and can only be engaged with the vehicle stationary.
The new Daily 4x4 might be tough on the outside with its aggressive styling, high tensile steel truck chassis, steel three-piece front bumper and off-road hardware, but on the inside, it's a quiet and comfortable driving environment. Boasting an all-new cabin interior with improved sound deadening, new climate control system and driver's air suspended seat, the Daily 4x4 is quiet and comfortable for both short and long journeys. It has ergonomically-designed controls and switches, multiple storage compartments and Bluetooth-equipped sound system, the new Daily 4x4 is also easy-to-use.
Constructed from a solid steel truck chassis, the Daily 4x4's frame is built tough for tough conditions. The beams and cross members are made from high strength tubular steel (Fe490), with a C section of 5mm. 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. A strong chassis also allows easy fitment of a wide range of body types.
The front axle is fitted with parabolic 3 leaf springs while the rear it is fitted with parabolic 4 leaf springs offering cushioning from the harshest of conditions. The telescopic shock absorbers and anti-roll stabiliser bars, coupled to the rigid axles, offer excellent performance on any type of terrain and gradient without penalising load capacity.
