New E6 IVECO Daily to deliver greater efficiency, power and comfort

01/03/2017

IVECO’s award-winning Daily range has been strengthened with the launch of a new Euro 6 (E6)-rated variant, that not only delivers cleaner running, but a host of efficiency and performance gains for operators.

At this stage, the E6 Daily will be limited to a single model boasting a 7t GVM however customer orders can shortly be placed for the lighter models in E6 as well.

Available alongside its Euro 5 (E5) Daily stablemates, the new model introduces a E6 emission standard through the adoption of a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system using AdBlue.

The new Daily is 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 has been used for many years in medium and heavy duty trucks and is widely available at petrol stations, it can also be purchased in containers and drums of various sizes for storage at depots or at the work site.

Along with the improved environmental performance, the E6 Daily features increased power and reduced fuel consumption.

The revised 3-litre turbo diesel power plant delivers an impressive 180 hp and 430 Nm of torque, an increase of 10 hp and 30 Nm over the equivalent 2014 model year variant.

E5 and E6 2016 model year updates

All 2017 Dailys (E5 and E6 van and cab chassis) benefit from reduced fuel consumption of almost 1 per cent on their predecessors’ impressive figures. The fuel efficiency gains have been
made by adopting lower viscosity synthetic oils, engineering tighter construction tolerances and the use of low friction bearings and pinion seals.

On the safety front, IVECO’s Lane Departure Warning System has been introduced as a cost option on 4x2 models. Using radar, the system warns the driver if the vehicle is moving from its lane, reducing the chance of collision.

For operators working in stringent OH&S environments, the latest 4x4 variants are now equipped with a driver’s SRS airbag. All 4x2 models continue to feature four airbags, while the IVECO ‘ESP9’ safety package which includes Electronic Brake force Distribution, Electronic Stability Program, Anti Slip Regulator and a host of additional driver aids continues as per earlier models.

In other news, manual transmission models now have an even more generous 150,000 kilometre transmission oil change intervals (up from 120,000 kilometres), while brake pads in the 35S variant are now approximately 20 per cent harder wearing. IVECO engineers have also introduced tougher seat material and lamp compounds for increased durability – all up these enhancements are estimated to have further reduced the Daily’s maintenance and repair costs by three per cent.

Operators will also notice a number of exciting interior cabin changes including a revised instrument cluster, a standard top-of-dash open storage area with USB charger plus further options including an inductive  charger. Storage has also been further improved with the adoption of new door panel lower drawers as standard.

The latest Daily range also boasts improved sound quality from its radio / multimedia system thanks to upgraded midwoofer and tweeter speakers.

Another notable range-wide improvement is a 3 dB noise reduction, which is achieved through improved soundproofing.

For superior comfort, an optional wadded headrest is available for vans and the front seats of crew cab models. Aesthetically, bi-color seats are now available as standard, this complements the Daily’s bi-colour dash which is available at no charge for customer orders. A standard black dash remains available.

On the outside, the latest Dailys can be identified by their revised grille treatment which now features horizontal bars compared to the previous horizontal over honeycomb design. The new grilles come standard with chrome highlights – a no cost optional black is also available.

Revised twin wheel hub covers for 35C and 50C van and cab chassis have also been introduced to further lift looks, while a selection of aluminum wheels and covers are available on certain models.

Relating specifically to the 70C170 cab chassis, a new 5,100mm wheelbase variant adds to the current 4,750 mm for this model. On the 3.5t and 5.2t Daily vans there is a new volume option of 13.4 cubic meters. This is achieved with the 3520L wheelbase (same as the current 12 cube)

but with a taller height of 2100mm. With the latest introductions the Daily range grows and now offers a wider selection of single and dual cabin cab chassis models and a van range spanning from 3.5 to 7.2 t GVM and volume capacities ranging from 7.3 to 19.6 m³.

There is now a greater availability of airbag rear suspension providing better performance and comfort when transporting sensitive freight.

Another impressive standard feature across the range continues to be Iveco’s multimedia system, ‘Iveconnect’. Iveconnect comprises a 7” colour screen display, Bluetooth connectivity, USB/Aux-in media transfer, voice recognition and navigation software. As an added cost option, Iveconnect can be specified with a rear camera and can be set-up to control the audio system and phone calls from the steering wheel.

IVECO New Zealand Product, Marketing and Network Development Manager, Kristi Walker, says the latest upgrades to the Daily range including the introduction of the E6 variant, builds on what was already a formidable product line-up.

“The new model and various range-wide updates helps keep the Daily at the forefront amongst its van and cab chassis competitors,” Mrs Walker said.

“For buyers wanting the latest in emission performance with excellent power, the E6 Daily is now available while the E5 models are also extremely clean and now offer improved levels of comfort and functionality, coupled with reduced running costs and improved aesthetics.

“IVECO NZ is confident that our latest Daily offerings will be well received by customers.”
