Iveco Daily Overview
The Iveco Daily is classed as a large commercial van and is produced by the Italian commercial vehicle manufacturers Iveco. This vehicle has been in production since 1978, where it was sold as the Fiat Daily up until 1983. The Iveco Daily is the smallest vehicle sold under the Iveco name, as they tend to focus more on commercial vehicles like trucks and tractors. The steering is a bit light but the Daily is a very easy van to drive with huge wing mirrors to give you a great view behind. Overall these are pretty refined vehicles and compete well with other panel vans of this class. Does this sound anything like your experience of this vehicle?
Iveco Daily History
The first generation (1978-90) was first sold as the Fiat Daily as mentioned above. In 1983 it changed to the Iveco Daily and has remained that way since. This vehicle was originally available in two models: 35 and 50 (3.5 and 5.0 tonne) and there was a turbo diesel version introduced to the range in 1980 called the ‘TurboDaily’.
The second generation (1990-2000) changed the cab design totally and the model range was changed as Ford commercial vehicles were built with Iveco, so the Iveco marketed vehicles were left for the heavier vehicle market. In 1996 this vehicle had a makeover.
The third generation (2000-06) won van of the year in 2000 and new versions were made available and the ‘TurboDaily’ name dropped. The fourth generation (2006-11) had a new design and had more versions available than ever before. The fifth generation (2011 - present) is the current version on the market and is not too different than its predecessor.
The Iveco Daily has been available in the following engines: 2.3, 2.5, 2.8 and 3.0L diesel depending on the year of the vehicle. There is also a 3.0 CNG (Natural Gas) version which is the most economical of the range. Which engine did you have for your van and how did it fair economically?
