Iveco introduces limited edition light truck

Commercial vehicle manufacturer, Iveco, has announced its Limited Edition 45C17 Daily light truck, claiming it is a “value-packed proposition”.

Iveco has said it will supply 100 passenger car licence Limited Edition Daily trucks, featuring Australian-made aluminium tray body, tow bar package, nudge bar, bonnet protector and floor mats.

The Limited Edition Daily reportedly has a Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) of 4,495kg, removable drop sides tailgate with quick-lock hinges and is powered by a three litre turbo diesel engine, producing 170hp and 430Nm with Hi-Matic eight-speed full automatic transmission.

According to Iveco, light truck safety features will include dual curtain airbags, front and rear disc brakes with ABS, Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, Electronic Stability Program, Anti Slip Regulator, Hill Holder and Daytime Running Lamps.

Iveco Australia Marketing Manager, Darren Swenson, has said the Limited Edition Daily was a value-packed proposition for buyers.

“For a comparable price to a dual cab 4x4, the Limited Edition Daily can also be driven on a car licence and provides the same car-like driving experience, safety features and convenience while also delivering a far superior payload thanks to a 4,495kg GVM and a braked towing capacity of 3,500kg,” said Swenson.

“The locally-made, heavy duty tray has been designed and built with Australian conditions in mind and is ready for the rigours that Aussie ‘tradies’ will no doubt put it through.

“Another attractive feature of the truck is that it’s work-ready and can virtually be driven from the showroom floor to the worksite once registered and insured – there’s no need to wait around for weeks for body fitment via a third party supplier,” he said.

Queensland-based concrete contractor, Neilsen Group, recently reflected on the Iveco ACCO 8x4 heavy vehicles it received earlier this year.
