Iveco’s ‘go-anywhere’ New Daily 4x4 makes debut at CV Show
Iveco has re-launched its New Daily 4x4, combining many of the new features found across the New Daily Euro 6 family with a strong chassis and impressive off-road abilities.
Iveco is using the CV Show to premiere its New Daily 4x4 – the latest generation off-roader, built with special features to tackle tough terrain including quarries, building sites and remote locations often inaccessible to regular commercial vehicles.
Represented on the stand by a New Daily 5517W with a dropside body, the updated 4x4 pairs a reinforced body with the driving comfort of an on-road vehicle. It affords the driver excellent forward visibility, while the ergonomic position of controls and switches creates a perfect driving position.
New Daily 4x4 stands out for its off-road chassis frame and tough three-piece steel front bumper. It is compatible with a wide range of specialist bodies and ancillary equipment, and offers multiple PTO choices on the transfer box and gearbox, to ensure the right combination for any off-road application.
The transfer box provides for high, low and neutral drive ratios, selectable with the vehicle in motion and, for on and off road conditions, with the vehicle at rest. This ensures New Daily 4x4 has a choice of 24 forward drive gears (12 for mixed routes and 12 for off-road routes) and four reverse gears.
New Daily 4x4 is available in 3.5 and 5.5 tonne model variants, and with a choice of on-road or off-road tyres, plus wheelbase options of 3,050 and 3,400mm. The 5.5 tonne model featured at the CV benefits from chunky off-road tyres, giving it the ability to tackle gradients of up to 45 degrees and approach angles of 49 degrees, with a maximum wading depth of 660mm – making it ideal for crossing rivers or operating in flood waters.
New Daily 4x4 is purpose-designed for the UK’s construction, emergency services, farming, forestry, local authority and utilities sectors.
