The New Iveco Daily Cab Chassis

The Daily cab chassis provides all the great benefits of the van range, which has won a multitude of awards over the years while allowing the owner to fit the body that best suits their needs.

Overview

With its large payload, superior strength, reliability and abundant driver comfort and safety features, the Daily is ideal for a large range of applications. Because the Daily features a tough C-section chassis and low tare weight, it’s a great platform for a broad selection of bodies, from simple steel or aluminium trays, to tippers, service units, pantechs and more sophisticated bodies needing CAN-BUS connections.

On offer across the single cab chassis range are payloads spanning from 2.4 tonnes to over 4.5 tonnes along with braked towing capacity of up to 3.5 tonnes. The combination positions the Daily cab chassis as a powerful workhorse, suitable for a wide variety of tasks, with most of the range being able to be driven on a standard car licence.

Daily cab chassis models also share the Daily Van's driveline and include the choice of two powerful yet fuel-efficient engines with up to 205 hp / 470 Nm, as well as two transmission options, a smooth changing 6-speed manual or the market-leading 'Hi-Matic' 8-speed full automatic.

With its many attributes, the Daily cab chassis range is the ideal choice for buyers wanting to upgrade from a traditional ute, or for those making the switch from a cab over light-duty truck to enjoy the many, safety, comfort and ride benefits.

And now with the introduction of IVECO 'Business Premium', 'Comfort' and 'Efficiency' packs to the Daily?range, it's easier and more cost-effective to choose a Daily model to best suit the application.

Daily Cab Chassis Single Cab

Single Cab

With seating for up to three adults and the versatility to be fitted with a wide range of bodies to best suit the customer's needs, the Daily single cab chassis provides the strength of a truck combined with a low tare weight to maximise the payload.

While there is no denying its tough workhorse underpinnings, on the inside the Daily single cab offers a car-like driving environment with all the safety features and abundant driver appointments, making the trip to and from the worksite or extended periods on the road comfortable and enjoyable.

The Daily single cab chassis is the best-selling European cab chassis in Australia attracting a strong following from buyers that are recognising its many benefits over older-styled cab over light trucks.

Dual Cabs

If seating for a full work crew is needed, selected Daily cab chassis models are available as dual-cab variants providing transport for the driver and up to six passengers while still allowing plenty of room for equipment and materials.

Dual cab models range in GVM from 4495 kg to 6700 kg for payloads of over 4100 kg depending on the body fitted - there are also several wheelbase options from 3400 mm to 4750 mm allowing for a wide variety of body options.

Daily dual cab models are available with the same engine, transmission and safety features as their single cab counterparts.

Daily Cab Chassis Engines

Engines

Powering the range are two core direct-injection IVECO diesel engines, both are 3.0 litre and deliver market-leading power and torque outputs.

The entry-level engine for the cab chassis uses a variable geometry system and intercooler to produce power of 170 hp / 430 Nm. Also available is a twin-turbo version of the 3.0 litre which offers increased power of 205 hp / 470 Nm.

To meet stringent Euro 5 emissions standards, E5 Daily engine range employs an Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) system. IVECO's E5 engine range is extremely well-regarded in the commercial vehicle industry for combining high power output and fuel efficiency, as well as long service intervals.

Transmissions

Market-leading automatic transmission

The Daily features an industry-first 8-speed 'Hi-Matic' full automatic transmission that provides the operator with an effortless driving experience courtesy of a self-adaptive shift strategy that results in correct gear selection and shifts that take less than 200 milliseconds.

The Hi-Matic used in the new Daily has been extensively tested for Australian climatic conditions and features a revised oil cooler for even stronger performance.

To assist in reducing fuel consumption, the Hi-Matic features both 'Eco' and 'Power' modes. When Eco is selected, the transmission reduces torque limits, while Power Mode holds the vehicle in each gear for longer for even crisper acceleration should it be required.

Additionally, thanks to its 8-speeds - the widest ratio spread of any automatic van transmission available in Australia - the engine will always be operating at its optimal speed. A 6-speed manual transmission is also available.

Daily Cab Chassis Safety

Safety

With many Daily owners expected to spend long periods on the roads, IVECO have equipped the new model with an extensive array of standard active and passive safety features.

While some light commercial vehicle competitors provide a front disc / rear drum brake set-up, the new Daily provides the superior stopping power of disc brakes 'all-round'. Adding to the braking equation is ABS with EBD (Electronic Brake Force Distribution).

Also standard on all models is IVECO's 'ESP 9' safety package which includes Electronic Stability Control, Trailer Sway Mitigation, Anti Slip Regulator, Adaptive Load Control, Hydraulic Rear Wheel Boost, Hydraulic Fading Compensation, Roll Movement Intervention and Roll Over Mitigation.

Passive safety features include driver, passenger and curtain airbags. All models are also equipped with low level fog lamps with cornering function. The cornering function automatically activates the fog lamps on bends casting light into the direction the driver is steering. It also engages once the indicator is applied.

Operators wanting additional safety can select the optional Lane Departure Warning (LDW) system which uses radar to warn the driver if the vehicle is moving from its lane.

Drives like a car

The latest Daily range continues to offer a car-like driving position, superior handling and a high level of driver appointments, helping to reduce driver fatigue even after extended periods on the road.

Insulation levels in the latest cabins have been increased resulting in a 4dB interior noise reduction and reduced vibration compared to its predecessor, wind noise has also been reduced by redesigning the B Pillar swabs and modifying the shape of the side mirrors to allow quieter airflow.

The Daily cabin features ample storage compartments, including a new dash central open storage area with USB sockets allowing convenient charging of mobile devices and tablets.

Smoothing out the bumps is the locally tested front suspension which offers outstanding drivability, comfort and dynamic response, while guaranteeing maximum stability on Australian roads.

The rear suspension has been calibrated to control over-steering, providing outstanding vibration dampening and driving stability even on the most demanding roads. An optional rear pneumatic air suspension is also available providing a more supple ride for occupants while better protecting fragile and load-sensitive cargo.

Daily Cab Chassis Applications

Applications

METROPOLITAN DELIVERY

Couriers, refrigerated and non-refrigerated vans are responsible for delivering a broad range of goods and consumables all around our cities and towns. Payload, driver comfort and safety are important considerations for these tasks. Depending on the application, there is a Daily cab chassis to suit all manner of delivery work.

TRADES

Tradespeople and contractors are eager users of commercial vehicles – the Daily cab chassis range provide a wide selection of wheelbases, GVM and volume making them ideal for trades who want a versatile vehicle with the payload to their building materials, tools and equipment.

MOTORHOME

The new Daily is the ideal platform on which to build a motorhome body and IVECO is a preferred supplier to this industry. Safety, performance, fuel efficiency and driver and passenger comfort are important factors in choosing a base for a motorhome - the new Daily cab chassis has all of these virtues and more.

FIFTH WHEELER

Unlike a motorhome which uses a body that is integrated onto the cab chassis, a fifth wheeler set-up sees the cab chassis used to tow a caravan (usually large). Instead of towing via a traditional tow-bar, a fifth wheel set-up sees the caravan attached to a turntable on the vehicle’s tray, this allows towing of larger caravans and improves road stability, braking and other performance. All Daily cab chassis models - including single and dual cabs - are ideal for this application.

SPECIALTY

From food truck operators to pet groomers or motorcycle transporters, the Daily provides the versatility no matter what the application. With its many market-leading features the Daily range is being put to work around Australia across all sorts of industry sectors, from the commonplace to the unique.
