One of the most notable features of the new Daily is an extended range of FPT (Fiat Powertrain Technologies) engines providing improved performance coupled with best-in-class environmental credentials. In direct response to changes in the way light commercial vehicles are homologated for engine emissions, Iveco has developed an even wider selection of engine options, thereby providing customers with maximum choice.
There are two basic Euro 4 engine options for the Daily, comprising a 2.3 litre offering a choice of power outputs from 96 to 136 hp, with a peak torque of up to 320 Nm, and a 3.0 litre engine with power from 136 to 176 hp and a maximum torque of 400 Nm. All of these engines use proven Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) technology.
All 2.3 litre engine options are certified to the Euro 4 standard, according to the light duty regime, with two new common rail versions consisting of a 106hp unit (with 270 Nm of peak torque) and 126 hp (290 Nm). Both of these new engine options join the existing line up of 96, 116 and 136 hp engines, the latter of which uses a Variable Geometry Turbocharger (VGT).
A selection of Euro 4 Daily models offering higher power outputs are also available, each with a 3.0 litre common rail engine offering ratings of 146 and 176 hp. Both of these models are certified according to the light duty regime, with the top performing 176 hp engine using a VGT to deliver an incredibly high torque output of 400 Nm.
The quality of the FPT engines is illustrated by the constant maximum torque over a wide range and available from the lowest engine speed, meaning they are comfortable in heavy traffic and respond quickly to sudden acceleration. This in turn puts a reduced strain on the engine which means enhanced fuel consumption, increased productivity and less mechanical stress, ensuring a longer lifespan. Each of these Daily engines is designed to operate with 100 per cent synthetic oil and allows service intervals to be extended to 40,000 km, resulting in a significant reduction in downtime and operating costs.
