2014 Iveco Daily previewed, official debut announced for June

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.

Iveco Defence delivers all 206 Trakker units to UK’s Royal Engineers

Iveco Defence Vehicles has completely delivered the 206 units of 8x8 and 6x6 Trakker to support the Royal Engineers on operations. This is the company's biggest order ever in the United Kingdom. The new vehicles, which replace the current fleet, have been delivered through two separate procurement routes.

The first route was for the 182 6x6 units through the C Vehicle PFI contract operated by ALC as prime contractor. The Trakker units were delivered in five versions. Iveco managed the Medium Dump Truck, Truck-Mounted Loader and Self-Loading Dump Truck. The two other variants are a Flush Capping System and a Drill Rig, both supplied under the direct control of ALC. The second procurement was the result of the success of this 6x6 fleet in service.

A fleet of Protected Self-Loading Dump Trucks for service on operations was required. Since Iveco had already manufactured a ballistic steel cab for the Trakker range, the 8x8 unit was a natural option for the challenging task. The procurement was a direct purchase by the UK MoD. Iveco managed the full integration activity.

Iveco had a convincing win at the 33rd Dakar, getting the first, second and sixth positions in the overall truck ranking. The event is considered the most important rally in the world and is joined by most of the Asian and European truck OEMs. The Petronas De Rooy Iveco team finished the rally in flying colors with the Dutchman Gerard De Rooy behind the wheel of an Iveco Powerstar, a vehicle manufactured and sold by Iveco in Australia.

The automobile is powered by an FPT Industrial C13 engine, which provides at least 900 horsepower. It also has Magneti Marelli components. The two other players of the team, Biasion and Stacey drove two Iveco Trakker Evolution 2s, which are also fitted with the same engine.

The three automobiles were standard trucks, which are manufactured to be optimized for best-in-class energy efficiency. They are also built to adapt to the intense conditions of the rally.

The launch for the new generation Iveco Daily will take place in September 2011 but British customers are in for a short wait as they will get their chance at the model only two months after on November 1. The complete details of the UK model line-up and specifications will be made available at around the time of the launch.

Improvements to the fuel efficiency and emissions of the New Daily were accomplished. The commercial vehicle is now powered by a new PT Industrial 3.0-litre Euro 5 Diesel engine, which has an output of 205 hp and 470 Nm of torque.

Those who are concerned about the environment and would want less emissions can choose the FPT Industrial 2.3-litre engine that benefits from a boost in engine torque to 320 Nm. Another item is the new Multijet II multi-event fuel injection system that maximizes the combustion process, bringing significant gains when it comes to bare engine noise, fuel consumption and tail-pipe emissions.

Fiat S.p.A. announced that Alfredo Altavilla will take over as CEO of the company's Iveco truck unit from Paolo Monferino who is departing Fiat Group to become head of health services for Piedmont, the region where Turin-based Fiat is located. Altavilla currently heads Fiat S.p.A.'s powertrain division. In order to focus on cars, Fiat has decided to spin off industrial operations including Iveco and CNH Global.

Fiat intends to list Fiat Industrial S.p.A. shares on the Milan exchange on Jan. 3. Credit Suisse analyst David Arnold wrote to clients that Monferino’s departure is “unlikely to be helpful” because the spin-off of Fiat industrial is only months away.

It was in 2006 that Altavilla started leading Fiat's powertrain unit. Furthermore, he is also the company’s head of business development. He joined the Chrysler board last July after Fiat acquired a 20% stake in Chrysler. In 1990, he joined Fiat as part of its international operations team.
