Iveco New Daily Euro 6 has arrived

After the new Daily launched in 2014, Iveco raises the bar even further with the Iveco New Daily Euro 6 and its DAILY BUSINESS UP application. Leveraging on its strength, versatility, performance and durability heritage, the new Daily Euro 6 introduces new features that use technology to push the boundaries of performance, raise comfort to a new level, deliver more connectivity and lower its Total Cost of Ownership, reflecting its Business Instinct and making it the perfect business partner.  The new generation Daily Hi-Matic Euro 6 family offers a uniquely wide range of engine ratings up to 210 hp and 470 Nm, and with the new intelligent EcoSwitch PRO system it further raises the bar on fuel efficiency.

Iveco New Daily Euro 6 Highlights:

• Up to 8% fuel savings
• Up to 12% maintenance and repairs costs savings
• A comfortable and silent cabin with 4 dB noise reduction and a new world of connectivity with
DAILY BUSINESS UP to make the most of the driver’s time
• Extended Daily Hi-Matic Euro 6 family with 5 engine ratings
• Uniquely wide range of 4-cyl engines from 120 to 210 hp
• Choice of Euro 6 engine technologies to match customer missions

The Iveco New Daily Euro 6 delivers unrivalled performance day after day with its new and powerful 2.3 and 3.0 litre engines developing as much as 210 hp and 470 Nm at the top of the range. It further improves fuel efficiency, with savings up to 8% compared to the previous Euro 5 models thanks to its advanced driveline technologies. The low maintenance and repair costs due to the extended service intervals and long-lasting components result in additional savings of up to 12%.

It introduces new features that further raise the levels of comfort and functionality of the cab. The cabin is even quieter than in previous models, with the noise level reduced by 4 decibels, improving the vehicle’s acoustics and sound recognition by 8%. The comfortable interiors feature a new leather steering wheel, blue seat covers and new textile foam headrests. The layout has been revised to include up to 18 storage compartments strategically placed around the cab for greater accessibility.

The new Digital radio (DAB) integrated into the dashboard offers all the main DAB and FM features with all the multimedia and phone management functionalities expected on a high-end vehicle. A practical cradle can hold mobile devices of different sizes and can double as a clipboard. Two easily reachable USBs make it possible to enjoy multimedia contents through the new DAB radio and to charge mobile devices. An optional inductive charger is also available for smartphones featuring the latest technologies.

DAILY BUSINESS UP can act as the customer’s Driver Assistant with features such as the Driving Style Evaluation (DSE) system, the professional navigation system by Sygic and the Interactive User Handbook. The app also serves as the driver’s Business Assistant, helping to optimise the fleet’s efficiency with Fleetwork and to keep track of scheduled services. The app also takes care of customer assistance, providing a direct link to Iveco Assistance Non Stop, the 24/7 roadside assistance service. All these features contribute to the New Daily Euro 6’s lower Total Cost of Ownership and a healthy bottom line for the customer.

The Iveco New Daily Euro 6 also introduces a new way of delivering connectivity that doesn’t require the installation of any equipment in the vehicle; drivers are able to communicate with the vehicle and its engine through their own smartphone or tablet, with DAILY BUSINESS UP. Bluetooth connection with the vehicle is automatically established through the new Digital radio and in a few seconds the New Daily Euro 6 becomes a connected professional workstation.

iveco_daily_euro6_2The Iveco New Daily Euro 6 offering also includes the class-exclusive Hi-Matic family, which offers ultimate comfort and all the benefits of safety, performance and productivity with features such as the ergonomic multifunctional lever and self-adaptive shift strategy. It also benefits from the intelligent EcoSwitch PRO system that knows exactly when to step in without intervention from the driver, recognizing if the vehicle is loaded or not, reducing fuel consumption and further lowering emissions with no compromise for the customer’s productivity. This vehicle is an example of how Iveco puts the driver at the core of its design process, improving productivity and providing absolute driving pleasure. The new generation Daily Hi-Matic product family has been extended to include a wider range of models to meet all business needs.

The optimized 3.0-litre F1C engine, tested over 20,000 hours on test bench and over 1.5 million kilometres on the road, features Selective Catalytic Reduction technology that controls NOx emissions and new injectors that help to optimise combustion and to lower Particulate Matter at engine out. This enables it to develop all the power needed for the most demanding high mileage and heavy-duty missions with remarkably low fuel consumption, long maintenance intervals and thus low operating costs.

The brand new 2.3-litre F1A engine has been reengineered from the oil-sump up. By using modern materials and virtual optimisation Iveco has been able to reduce the engine’s weight by 6%. By reducing friction, further optimizing the cooling and MULTIJET II injection system, installing a variable displacement oil pump, and other such improvements, fuel consumption has been cut by 8% on the NEDC cycle.

Tested over 35,000 hours on test bench and over 1.3 million kilometres on the road, F1A’s
combination of these technical interventions, together with a slightly higher displacement compared to Iveco’s competitors, and a Low Pressure Exhaust Gas Recirculation system ensure that the engine has naturally reduced raw emissions, which only require a simplified after-treatment system.

All the new features contribute to lowering the Iveco New Daily Euro 6 Total Cost of Ownership. The vehicle bristles with features that result in excellent fuel economy: from the Variable Geometry Turbine on models ranging from 140 to 180 hp that ensures a more efficient use of the engine, to the new EcoSwitch PRO intelligent system that automatically reduces torque when needed without driver intervention, reducing fuel consumption with no compromise to productivity.

Maintenance intervals have been extended to 50,000 km through the use of longer lasting
components and consumables, resulting in 20% more uptime between services. The optimised braking system with new, tougher brake pads is more efficient and durable. All this, together with the harmonisation of maintenance interventions resulting in more vehicle uptime, adds up to a significant reduction in maintenance and repair costs: up to 12% depending on the vehicle’s mission.

The Iveco New Daily Euro 6 is the most versatile vehicle in its class with the widest line-up in the industry ranging from 3.3 right up to 7.2 tonnes of gross vehicle weight, and from 7.3 m3 up to 19.6 m3 cargo volumes. The exceptional versatility and variety of versions available – van, semi-windowed van, chassis cab, chassis cowl and crew cab – opens up a wealth of possibilities for a wide variety of missions.

In addition, the load-bearing structure with ‘C’ shaped, special steel cross-members is the best platform for bodybuilders to adapt for very diverse missions, such as Camper, Ambulance, Car-recovery or Garbage-collection. This outstanding versatility is further extended with the introduction of the new 5,100 mm wheelbase on the 7 tonne model, which maximizes the possible body length for the chassis cab versions and adds even more adaptation opportunities for bodybuilders.

The Iveco New Daily Euro 6 is manufactured at Iveco’s production plant in Suzzara, Italy, which is entirely focused on this product family. The facility relies on World Class Manufacturing (WCM) processes to manage the high degree of complexity that comes with producing the very wide Daily range, which has as many as 11,000 product variations. WCM is a methodology that aims to create error-free processes in order to achieve zero defects, zero waste and zero accidents. It is a continuous improvement process that centres on the involvement of every operator involved in production. The Suzzara plant introduced WCM in 2007 and in just five years achieved Silver Medal certification, which attests to the high levels of quality it delivers.

Iveco invested in the Suzzara facilities in preparation for the introduction of the New Daily Euro 6 to further enhance its responsiveness to the markets’ demand.
