Iveco Australia has added 22 new wheelbase and volume combinations to its Daily van and light truck range.

Bringing the number of 35S and 50C variants to 12, Iveco has launched new 7.3 cubic metres , 10.8 cm, 18 cm volume versions of the 35S and new 9 cm and 10.8 cm models of the higher GVM 50C.

The wheelbase changes start with the 4,495kg GVM Daily 45C, able to be driven on a car licence, which is now shipping in five new wheelbases: 3,000mm, 3,450mm, 4,100mm, 4,350mm, and 4,750mm.

Also gaining new wheelbase options is the dual-rated (4,495kg and 5,200kg GVM) 50C, which is now available in 3,000mm, 3,450mm, 4,100mm, and 4,700mm.

At the top end, the 7,000kg GVM 70C range gain a further two wheelbase options: 3,750mm and 4,100mm.

For those looking for a dual-cab, the 50C and 70C ranges each ship in three new choices: 3,450mm, 4,100mm, and 4,350mm.

Iveco Australia marketing manager Darren Swenson says the changes expand customer choice.

"The latest additions and refinements made to the van and cab chassis range will further broaden the appeal of the award-winning Daily to a wider range of buyers, particularly tradespeople and PUD operators," Swenson says.

"It’s approximately a year since the current generation Daily range was launched in Australia, and this experience over the last 12 months has provided us with the market intelligence to refine our model mix to better suit the requirements of our customers.

"The result is an even stronger product range with great standard features and the improved ability for prospective buyers to specify a Daily van or cab chassis to very closely fit their business needs."

Extending past the new wheelbase and volume variants, Iveco says the changes will also see features that were previously extras, now available as standard.

This change includes Iveco’s ESP 9 safety package, which adds stability control, roll-over mitigation, trailer sway mitigation, hill holder, hydraulic brake assist, hydraulic rear wheel boost, hydraulic fading compensation, and adaptive load control.

The previously limited 3.0l twin turbo powerplant is also available across the board under the changes, as is Iveco’s rear air suspension (ECAS).

Inside the cabin of van models, Iveco has made the 6.2-inch touch-screen now standard fitment, offering customers a reversing camera satellite navigation, Bluetooth, and DVD player.

In a few other differences, sliding windows are available, bulkheads can be removed, and alloy wheels are on the table for select 35S models.
