IVECO showcases model breadth

IVECO is showcasing the key vehicles from its product line-up at this year’s Brisbane Truck Show, from the smaller Daily E6 through to the heavy-duty 70 tonne highway range.

On display at the stand are the 4495kg GVM passenger car licence Daily E6, the latest generation 8×4 ACCO and the 70t GCM highway range – all Euro 6-rated.

The Australian-made 8×4 ACCO on show features a Superior Pak front-loading compactor body.

The ACCO has been a popular model for refuse collection applications for decades. The latest range continues this tradition, having gained fast-growing acceptance in service-related industries since its launch.

The displayed vehicle is rated at 28.5 tonnes and features a Cursor 9 engine with an output of 360hp and 1650Nm. It’s coupled to the Allison Generation Five 3200 Series, 6-speed full automatic transmission.

The truck also features rear IVECO 8-bag Electronically-Controlled Air Suspension and rear Meritor axles, with driver controlled differential locks for additional traction.

Another key component of the latest ACCO range is its safety offering which includes Electronic Stability Program, Advanced Emergency Braking System and Adaptive Cruise Control as standard, along with optional Lane Departure Warning System, hydraulic retarder, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System and Driver Attention Support.

In the medium weight class is the Eurocargo ML160 4×2 featuring 16 tonne GVM, 28t GCM and the 280 hp/1000 Nm Tector 7 and ZF 9-speed driveline combination.

The Eurocargo’s safety offering is a highlight of the range, with the availability of a driver airbag, Electronic Stability Program, Anti-Slip Regulator, Hill-Holder, Advanced Emergency Braking System, Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Departure Warning System.

Representing the recently launched new Daily E6 light duty range is the limited edition 45C180 ‘Tradie-Made’ work-ready model.

The display vehicle features a 180hp engine and 8-speed full automatic transmission combination, and is equipped with a factory 3.1 m, heavy-duty aluminium tray. A 4.2 m tray variant is also available in the Tradie-Made range.

Safety in the new Daily E6 is class-leading and includes four airbags, Advanced Emergency Braking System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Crosswind Assist and an enhanced ‘ESP9’ suite of stability control technologies as standard.

Other active safety features, including Lane Departure Warning System, full LED headlamps, Hill Descent Control, City Brake, Queue Assist and Traction Plus, are available as either stand-alone options or as part of ‘Pack’ option upgrades.

Capping off IVECO’s 2021 Brisbane Truck Show presence is one of the company’s heavy-duty Highway models.

Like the other vehicles on the IVECO stand, IVECO’s Highway heavy duty display model features high levels of performance, safety and comfort.

The display model has a GCM of >70 t and is powered by a Cursor 13 engine which develops up to 550hp. The power plant is matched to the clever, Hi-Tronix 16-speed automated manual transmission, a market-leading offering that’s highly regarded for its efficiency, ease-of-use and durability.

Standard safety features of IVECO’s Highway heavy duty range – which is also available in 6×4 and 8×4 rigid configurations – include Advanced Emergency Braking System, Adaptive Cruise Control and Electronic Stability Program; extra optional safety equipment, including Lane Departure Warning System, Driver Attention Support and Tyre Pressure Monitoring System, is also available.

In addition to the Brisbane Truck Show, IVECO, in conjunction with Q-FE and Trout River, is also at the Southbank Truck Festival, displaying the Q-FE Road Ant.

The Road Ant is a dual control, forward moving, aggregate spreader, based on an ACCO 6×4 fitted with a Trout River, asphalt-compatible body and 10-gate chip spreader. The vehicle has been developed and built to comply with VicRoads Standard 408.11. A standard that mandates that all aggregate spreaders, working in sprayed sealing applications, are required to be forward moving from July 1, 2022.

The Q-FE Road Ant can be driven independently from both ends of the vehicle and includes extensive safety features that are engaged when driving the vehicle from either end.
