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.
The New Daily will have safety enhancements that include daytime running lights and a new fog light. It also comes with a cornering feature to guarantee that drivers are able to manage during the worst driving conditions.
The following is offered as standard: Standard equipment will include the new ESP 9 safety system with active sensors and comprises ABS (anti-lock brakes), EBD (electronic brake force distribution), ASR (traction control), MSR (engine speed management to control engine over-run braking), ESP (stability control), HBA (hydraulic brake assist) to ensure emergency braking is as effective as possible, Hill Holder, LAC (load adaptive braking control), TSM (trailer sway mitigation), HRB (hydraulic rear wheel brake boost), HFC (hydraulic brake fade compensation), RMI (roll movement intervention) and ROM (roll over mitigation).
