Chassis frame, transmission and suspension
To ensure long, trouble-free service-life, the New Eurocargo 4x4 uses an outstandingly strong rolled frame, with the mechanical qualities you’d expect from a heavy vehicle, but lower tare weight.
Thanks to its chassis frames with C-section sidemembers in high-yield-strength steel (Fe420), it can readily withstand the stresses generated by an unbalanced load or sudden change of trajectory.
To enhance the long-term protection of metal surfaces, certain components have been improved, and anti-abrasion and anti-corrosion treatments with Tectyl are available as an option.
The ZF six-speed manual gearboxes are fitted with a servoshift system for easy gear-changing even in the most demanding work conditions.
Permanent four-wheel drive is provided by a longitudinal differential, which distributes torque between the front and rear axles.
What’s more, you can select a fast or slow distributor ratio, according to conditions (on/off road).
All the differentials are equipped with a manually operated locking system to ensure traction even in especially adverse, low-grip conditions.
Eurocargo 4x4 is fitted with a double-reduction rear axle and is available in versions with single or twin wheels.
Braking comes courtesy of simplex drum brakes on the rear axle and duplex drums up front, while you can specify either parabolic or semi-elliptical leaf spring suspension.
