New manual transmission: comfortable driving experience with best-in-class shiftability and precision

The New Daily introduces a new 6-speed manual transmission that offers an excellent driving experience with best-in-class shiftability and precision engagement. This will make it a favourite for drivers in urban missions, who will benefit from greater comfort on long days behind the wheel.

The new transmission will also contribute to lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). It has been possible to couple the 2.3-litre engine with the same clutch as the 3.0-litre engine, improving robustness in the toughest missions and increasing durability by up to 18%. The new transmission will require no oil change, as the interval has been extended to 350,000 km, contributing to a further reduction in maintenance and repair costs of up to 4%.

New memory foam seats: adapt to the driver to provide supreme comfort
The New Daily features entirely new seats with central pads of the cushion and backrest, and the headrest in memory foam – an industry first for Light Commercial Vehicles. The foam moulds to the body, distributing the weight evenly, reducing pressure peaks by up to 30%.

This results in supreme comfort and protects from back pain. The side sections have been thickened with 15mm of high-density foam to improve lateral containment, enhancing safety and the driving experience.

Taller people will be more comfortable the 20 mm longer and 15 mm thicker front cushion, which provides better support for their longer legs. The seat side carter and levers have been redesigned to make it easier to get on and off the vehicle, ideal for door-to-door and parcel delivery missions that require frequent exits.
