Iveco has launched an additional 7.5 tonne model in its Eurocargo range, designed to appeal to tradesmen and local retailers.
The Eurocargo 75E14 – available in the UK from January 2012 – has been tailored specifically to suit lower mileage applications.
The principal difference in specification is a five-speed manual gearbox matched to a 140 hp version of the proven 3.9 litre FPT Industrial tector engine (as opposed to the standard 75E16, which features an automated transmission and 160 hp engine).
Martin Flach, Iveco’s Product Director, explains: “The introduction of the Eurocargo 75E14 enhances and extends our medium truck product range and allows us to offer a competitively priced 7.5 tonner for all possible missions.
“A market trader or local retailer is unlikely to need the same specification vehicle as a blue-chip company operating on a demanding multi-drop distribution cycle. This new Eurocargo model reflects that; not only in terms of its transmission and engine, but also its price.”
The 3.9 litre tector engine in the Eurocargo 75E14 is capable of producing 140 hp at 2,700 rev/min and up to 460 Nm of torque between 1,200 and 2,100 rev/min. Like all engines across Iveco’s medium and heavy truck ranges*, it is certified to meet the stringent Enhanced Environmentally friendly Vehicle (EEV) level. Iveco is currently the only UK truck manufacturer to offer Euro 5-beating EEV engines as standard. Their cleaner emissions will help to protect customers against future legislation changes for as long as possible.
Prices for the Eurocargo 75E14 start from £40,900 – a saving of £1,600 over a standard 75E16 model with automated transmission.
