The first right-hand drive examples of new Eurocargo will start arriving into the UK and Ireland within weeks, following the international launch of Iveco’s latest generation medium truck.
Such an extensive model line-up means new Eurocargo maintains its versatility, with a choice of day cab, crew cab, sleeper cab and high-roof sleeper cab models, seven power ratings from 160hp to 320hp, 11 transmission options including four automated, five manual and two automatic, 15 wheelbases from 2,790mm to 6,570mm, a choice of 4×2 or 4×4, plus an extensive range of final axle ratios.
In addition to the mainstream rigids, new Eurocargo will be available as a specialist conversion for road sweeper applications, plus the company is reintroducing a full line-up of urban artic models. These will cater for gross carriage weights (GCW) from 18 tonnes to 35 tonnes – making it Iveco’s most extensive urban artic range ever.
Another specialist conversion being offered will see the maximum gross vehicle weight (GVW) increased to 22 tonnes on select models. Iveco can achieve this by adding a single wheel lifting axle with servo-assisted hydraulic steering, making it particularly suited for distribution applications, yet without any impact upon vehicle manoeuvrability.
Demonstrators will be available from dealers nationwide during October.
