Iveco daily gets a 2021 mid-life update

Connectivity is all the rage in commercial vehicles, and the updated 2021 Iveco daily has been given a mid-life freshen that introduces Amazon Alexa voice control to the cab. 
It’s part of the Iveco motorist friend system, which adds voice control co-developed by Amazon and allows users to check on their vehicle’s status, book servicing, plan routes and even connect with fellow users of the Iveco motorist network. This allows users to share information, such as weather and hold-ups. motorist friend will be available on the daily van and the Iveco S-Way truck, too.

In addition to the new connectivity, the Iveco daily gets an updated look. It’s a subtle evolution, with new satin silver grille highlights, updated tail-lights and improved seats inside. Memory foam has been added to the chairs to improve comfort and safety, while the seats are claimed to be a lot more supportive, too.

Elsewhere, the new Iveco daily has the current Euro 6-compliant diesel engines that are a lot more efficient than before. There are 2.3 and 3.0-litre diesels, and the former now comes with the same six-speed manual gearbox used by the larger engine. This gearbox delivers a smoother shift and doesn’t require an oil change, which helps to minimize running costs. As before, Iveco’s big-selling Hi-Matic automobile will also be available, and this has been additionally refined for smoother driving.
As well as the diesel engines, the Iveco daily also comes with a petrol engine that has been converted to run on compressed natural gas (CNG). This uses large fleets the opportunity to carbon offset their emissions while still using a long range – something that the current large electric vans are unable to do.

Also included on the daily for the first time is the option of air suspension. This set-up is created to deliver a a lot more comfortable ride and greater stability, which helps keep cargo safe and the motorist kicked back on longer journeys. This system is also available on the Iveco daily chassis cab, which will help comfort on camper versions, as well as custom-made built ambulances and other private hire variants.
The Daily’s connectivity also includes Iveco control room, which is its fleet telematics system, and integrates with Iveco On, the firm’s service package.

The new updates will be available later in the year.
