A completely new vehicle range, which offers one of the best solutions in its category in terms of: load productivity, as best-in-class for loadspace volumes and superior capacities, comfort and driveability equal to that of passenger car’s interior, and further improvements in fuel efficiency.
The third generation of the
The working companion of choice for transport professionals, the new vehicle is presented as being convenient and practical to use as a light van, whilst continuing to offer the maximum reliability, efficiency and versatility that have always made the Daily a reference point for the sector. While 80% of components have been redesigned, the
The design efforts of the company focused on both versions of the vehicle, chassis cab and van, with an ambitious objective: consolidate leadership in both sectors, whilst further improving ergonomics, driving comfort, driveability and handling. The two new vehicles in one concept was thus created: a restyled Daily chassis cab version and a completely new
The capacity of the van has been strongly enhanced by revising the ratio between wheelbase, total length and the carrying length: this led to the creation of the new 18 and 20 m3 models (offering the best loadspace in their category) and the 10.8 m3 version (the best in its category for load efficiency, an indicator that measures the ratio between the length of the load compartment and the total length of the vehicle).
Thanks to the new architecture, with longer wheelbases and reduced rear overhang, the
The new front suspension QUAD-LEAF, standard on all models up to 3.5 tonnes, constitutes the excellent blend between the two previous single- and twin-wheel versions, guaranteeing increased load carrying capacity of the first and ground clearance and maximum allowed payload on axles of the latter.
For the single-wheel models, the rear suspension has also been redesigned, which has yielded two important improvements: a decrease in the height of the load platform by approximately 55 millimetres to facilitate vehicle loading and unloading, and a reduction of oversteer in load transfers when cornering. The combination of the new front and rear suspension systems, and the new longer wheelbases for the van produce a dynamic, category-leading performance in terms of safety and stability.
The third generation of the Daily is also focused on business requirements and offers a considerable reduction in fuel consumption compared with the previous model, with a significant improvement in vehicle running costs, together with the best performance in the category offering a wide range of engines, transmissions and axle ratios.
But that is not all: the comfort of the vehicle has also been greatly improved. The driver of the
The Daily is a “global” vehicle: more than 2.6 million Daily vehicles have been sold to date in over 110 countries worldwide. It is produced at the Iveco Suzzara plant, near
These facilities have each obtained the silver medal from the esteemed
Strength, robustness and versatility, the tradition continues
The ladder frame chassis is a vital element in the vehicle’s robustness and modularity: the load carrying structure of the chassis with a C -profile, made from high-resistance steel, is guaranteed to be long -lasting and afford maximum bodybuilding flexibility. This solution is the ideal support for every type of Daily configuration, allowing the vehicle to be more easily converted than the box-frame version, and makes it the only vehicle in its category capable of reaching a gross vehicle weight of up to 7 tonnes. The chassis confirms the excellent basic design of a top-of-the-range commercial vehicle.
The repositioning of the Daily in the single-wheel van segment is one of the most important objectives behind the vehicle’s design.
With the new longer wheelbases, the
This version also represents the most important growth opportunity for Iveco in the largest market segment for vans: 38% of vans sold in
GVW of the van models range from 3.3 to 7 tonnes with vehicle loadspace volumes ranging from 7.3 to 19.6 m3. The van comes in heights of up to 2,100 mm, so that even tall users can stand upright in the loading compartment. External lengths range between 5,040 to 7,500 mm, while the load compartment starts from 2,600 mm up to 5,100 mm.
The lowering of the load platform by 55 mm has also made loading and unloading the vehicle easier and quicker. The height of the load compartment is among the best in the rear-wheel drive van category.
The range of chassis cab models is the largest on the market, with gross vehicle weights ranging from 3.3 to 7 tonnes, the wheelbase from 3,000 to 4,750 mm and total vehicle lengths of up to 6,190 mm. The new 4,100 mm wheelbase and single-wheel version combines excellent driveability and a 4,500 mm bodybuilding surface, whilst preserving the distinctive qualities of the Daily and enhancing driveability.
Better handling and driveability
The new architecture with long wheelbases and reduced rear overhang has improved the balance and handling of the
A new front suspension system has been developed in order to fully exploit the potential of the new vehicle. It improves comfort and driveability, and will be adopted as standard on both van and chassis cab versions.
The new QUAD LEAF front suspension is based on a double quadrilateral arrangement with traverse leaf springs that produces excellent results in terms of containing dimensions and masses. This new front suspension, standard for all models up to 3.5 tonnes, is the best combination between the characteristics of the two previous versions thanks to several characteristics:
· maximum permitted load of 1,900 kg (+100kg)
· height from the ground for the chassis cab versions of 175mm (+45mm)
· increased load capacity (+60 kg vs MecTor)
The new van line-up wheelbases focus mainly on the single-wheel versions. They contribute - in combination with the new suspensions - to deliver great enhancements in terms of stability and reaction response, allowing for lateral acceleration similar to that of a well-performing automobile, equal to 0.74 g.
The front suspension system has also been restyled with a dual quadrilateral arrangement and a torsion beam. The QUAD-TOR suspension system, available on twin-wheel versions, has been adapted for heavy usage and can carry a maximum axle load of 2,500 kg (2,100 kg for versions up to 5 tonnes). This solution, which uses a torsion beam as a flexible element, is a unique feature in the sector and has been one of the Daily’s strengths since it was first launched.
The rear suspension system on single-wheel versions has also been revised and its geometry has been recalibrated in order to minimise oversteer and increase the damping efficiency of the shock absorbers. A weight reduction of 8 kg in comparison to the previous model, along with a loading compartment lowered by 55 mm make the
Safety standards have also been enhanced with the
Through a simple button on the dashboard, the new EcoSwitch function allows engine mapping with the availability of reduced maximum torque (especially suitable for reduced load conditions) and a 5km/h restriction on the vehicle’s top speed.
The Smart Alternator is an operating mode for the alternator which allows for the recovery of kinetic energy from the vehicle during release and deactivates the absorption of power in battery-charging conditions.
EcoMac is an operating logic control for the automatic air-conditioning system which optimises the operation of the compressor depending on the actual passenger compartment cooling requirements, while taking account of the perceived equivalent temperature.
The measures to optimise fuel consumption are rounded off with solutions aimed at reducing friction, such as reduced tangential load piston ring seals, low viscosity engine oil and low rolling resistance tyres.
In the van configuration, a 7 tonne
Additionally, on both versions, the improvement in aerodynamics and the technological solutions adopted on the vehicle (from the EcoSwitch to the intelligent alternator) allow total fuel savings of up to 5%. This involves a significant reduction in the vehicle’s total running costs.
Exterior design: new and functional
The Iveco “family feeling” makes its debut on the
The front-end stems from the composition of different modules: the glazed surface of the windscreen, framed by black pillars, continues seamlessly into the side windows and joins with the band created by the headlamps and the grille at the height of the mirrors. The bonnet stands out between the two modules like a floating expanse: its encompassing shape and dimensions facilitate access to the engine compartment. Lower down, the bumpers stretch to the robust wheel arches and assist road holding with their horizontal design.
Interior design: the new concept of comfort driving
The cab interior has also been completely redesigned to make it an even more pleasant environment for the driver and crew to be in, thanks to a space developed to increase visibility, ergonomics and sound insulation. The new dashboard, completely redesigned to enhance vehicle ergonomics, seat and steering wheel, allows the driver to adopt a similar driving position and have a similar experience to that offered by a premium automobile. Specifically, all controls and storage pockets were designed with the idea of making them easy to reach from the driving position, including five closed compartments, three cup holders, as well as tailor -made compartments for everyday items, such as mobile phones and tablets.
The "smart" space management, the sound insulation created through the use of sound-absorbing materials and the more efficient control of the air-conditioning system make life on board extremely comfortable in all load conditions and whatever the mission.
This aspect is enhanced further by the wide range of info-telematics which improves the general quality of being on board. In particular, the IVECONNECT platform allows the driver to manage an infotainment system that includes radio, MP3 player, Bluetooth, rear view camera and satellite navigation each activated via a dashboard mounted touch -screen.
The most extensive range in the category
