The latest generation Daily 4×4 cab chassis model has been teased by IVECO ahead of the vehicle’s proposed official Australian launch in the second quarter of 2023.
As a favoured platform for expedition motorhomes, mining, exploration, forestry, emergency service work and similar applications that require extreme off-road ability, the new Daily 4×4 introduces new levels of refinement and independent front suspension to improve ride dynamics.
Rear suspension remains parabolic three-leaf, ensuring the vehicle continues to offer generous load carrying abilities.
The new model will be available in single and dual cab variants with 7t GVM and three wheelbase options.
IVECO’s 8-speed full automatic transmission is another important addition to the new release to provide a more relaxed driving experience in demanding off-road conditions.
The full automatic integrates with the truck’s Euro 6, 3.0-litre turbodiesel engine, resulting in a flat torque band and extremely efficient use of the powerplant’s 132kW (180hp) and 430Nm.
A six-speed manual transmission continues to be offered for those who prefer to self-shift.
As standard, the new models feature centre, front and rear differential locks to provide high levels of traction off-road.
The transfer box also has a PTO option, allowing power delivery to a broad range of ancillary equipment, from tipping bodies, to pumps and drills.
An expansion module with CAN open interface allows further customisation of bodies and accessories.
Braking in the new model comes courtesy of ventilated disc brakes all round with ABS and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, part of IVECO’s broader ‘ESP9’ program which offers a range of active safety equipment including Electronic Stability Program, Anti Slip Regulator, Hill Hold Control and others.
The overall safety package also includes driver and passenger SRS Airbags.
A raft of interior cabin changes have also been introduced to the new models to further improve ergonomics and connectivity.
Full technical details on the new Daily 4×4 will be supplied closer to its official launch date.
