Iveco Daily E6 4×4
The new light commercial vehicle family from Iveco is the New Daily E6 4×4 (5517W), with a gross vehicle weight of 5.5 tonnes and mounted with a dropside body. Sitting on 225/100 R 16 Michelin off-road tyres, it stands out for its go-anywhere capability, rugged off-road chassis and tough three-piece steel front bumper.
Built to tackle challenging terrain, this model can handle gradients of up to 45 degrees and approach angles of 49 degrees, with a wading depth of up to 660mm.
Purpose-designed for the construction, emergency services, farming, forestry, local authority and utilities sectors, this powerful 180 hp model is compatible with a wide range of specialist bodies and ancillary equipment, and offers multiple PTO choices on the transfer box and gearbox. 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 a choice of 24 forward drive gears (12 for mixed routes and 12 for off-road routes), plus four reverse gears.
The wider New Daily E6 line-up features new and powerful 2.3 and 3.0 litre engines developing as much as 210 hp and 470 Nm. The revised engines further improve fuel efficiency, achieving savings of up to 8 per cent compared with previous Euro 5 models, thanks to advanced driveline technologies. Extended service intervals and long-lasting components also result in savings of up to 12 per cent on repair and maintenance costs, whilst a new app named ‘DAILY BUSINESS UP’ ensures the driver is always connected via a personal tablet or smartphone.
