With class-leading payload, volume capacity, GVM, power and torque, and industry-leading 8-speed Hi-Matic full automatic transmission, it's no surprise that the IVECO Daily has won a multitude of awards over the years including 'International Van of the Year - 2018' for its 'Blue Power' range.
On offer in the van range are volume capacities spanning from 7.3 m3 to a market-leading 19.6 m3 and GVM ratings ranging from a passenger car licence 3800 kg to light truck 7000 kg - the highest GVM of any van in Australia. There are also a number of wheelbase choices from 3000 mm to 4100 mm and three roof heights allowing operators to select a specification to ideally suit the application.
E5 Engine Range
IVECO's E5 engine range for Daily van and cab chassis models is extremely well-regarded in the commercial vehicle industry for combining high power output and fuel efficiency, as well as long service intervals.
Powering the range are two core direct-injection Iveco diesel engines, a 2.3 and a 3.0 litre - all deliver market-leading power and torque outputs. The 2.3-litre powerplant features turbocharger with wastegate and intercooler producing 126 hp / 320 Nm. The 3.0-litre offering is also turbocharged but 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.
E6 Engine Range
Both the Daily 70C van and Daily 4x4 feature Euro 6-rated, SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) engines. The SCR emission control system using urea solutions such as Adblue has been successfully and widely used by medium and heavy-duty trucks for many years.
At its simplest, Adblue is injected into the hot exhaust stream and reacts with the harmful NOx (Nitrogen Oxides) to form harmless nitrogen and water vapour.
The Euro 6 Daily vehicles are equipped with a 25 litre (nominal) AdBlue tank capacity and it’s estimated that the vehicle will consume three litres of AdBlue per 100 litres of diesel depending on conditions, this means the operator will only need to refill AdBlue every seven or eight tanks of diesel. AdBlue is widely available at petrol stations and it can also be purchased in containers and drums of various sizes for storage at depots or at the worksite.
*EURO 6 ONLY AVAILABLE ON THE DAILY 70C VAN
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.
With many Daily owners expected to spend long periods on the roads, IVECO has 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.
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.
IVECO has maintained the Daily's strong truck-like solid steel C-section chassis. This approach is unique to the new Daily and sets it apart from vans developed with car-derived underpinnings. The result is a robust load-bearing chassis that allows for greater load capacities and has made it possible to optimise load-carrying ability across the range.
A solid chassis also increases the vehicles' durability and makes them suitable for a broader range of applications both in van and cab chassis variants.
Payload is an important factor when selecting a light commercial vehicle and the new range delivers in spades with GVMs of up to 7 tonnes and payloads of up to 4.7 tonnes. Volumetric load capacities have also been optimised and range between 9 to 19.6 m³. The 18 and 19.6 m³ models offer best-in-class volume.
The van is also available in three internal heights: 1545, 1900 and 2100mm and with 8 rear axle ratios on offer, there's plenty of choice depending on the application. An optional rear differential lock is available on all models.
Another clever introduction is a load platform that is now 55mm lower than the preceding models - one of the lowest of all rear-wheel drive vans. A lower load platform means less effort is required by the operator to manually load and unload the van. A further advantage can be gained by opting for rear air suspension – available across the range - which further lowers the height.
Access to the load space is via a side sliding door and rear 'barn' doors. The rear doors provide a full 270° opening. The rear doors incorporate stop devices to hold them at 90°, 180° and when fully opened - the driver can even reverse into tight loading bays with the doors fully opened.
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 van to suit all manner of delivery work.
Tradespeople and contractors are eager users of commercial vehicles - the Daily range provides a wide selection of wheelbases, GVM and volume options as well as roof heights, making them ideal for trades who want a fully enclosed vehicle to house and transport their materials and tools.
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.
