2014 Iveco Daily previewed, official debut announced for June

Article by Christian A., on April 9, 2014

The third-generation Iveco Daily will be unveiled to the international press in June 2014. The new Daily -- build at Iveco’s recently upgraded production sites in in Suzzara, Italy and Valladolid, Spain -- retains its classic ladder frame chassis structure, thereby ensuring strength, flexibility, and long-term durability while allowing for easier configuration for chassis cab models.

During the planning process, Iveco focused on both chassis cab and van versions. Iveco improved the van’s handling and carrying capacity by optimizing its load volumes and making its cargo bed more accessible. The company also reassessed the relationship between the van’s wheelbase, overall length, and the length of the cargo bed – leading to the new 18- and 20- cubic meter models (best in class for volume) and the 11-cubic meter model (best in class for cargo efficiency).

The new design of the Daily boasts of elongated wheelbases and a shortened rear overhang, ensuring driveability without compromising agility in tight spaces. All daily models up to 3.5 tons feature new front suspensions that enable good and improves passenger comfort as well the maximum possible load capacity.

A new rear suspension layout for single wheel drive models cut the height of the loading platform by around 55 mm, which simplified loading and unloading operations. The new Daily boasts of delivering a 5-percent fuel savings compared with the previous model.

It also boasts of improved Total Cost of Ownership, best in class performance and a wide range of engines, transmissions and axle ratios. The cabin of the third-generation Daily now offers greater levels of comfort and noise insulation.

The new Daily also features interior ergonomics, greater soundproofing, and more efficient air conditioning system. [source: Iveco]
