To celebrate the IVECO Daily Blue Power being named ‘International Van of the Year 2018’, IVECO has launched a limited edition ‘Blue’-inspired model in Australia, providing customers with extra value along with an eye-catching colour treatment, all for only $59,990 plus GST.
Available exclusively on the Daily 35S17 van (3520mm wheelbase and 12m³ van capacity), the Blue Edition provides the peace of mind of an extended 5 Year/200,000km factory warranty, while delivering a long list of standard features and added road presence courtesy of its electric blue grille, distinctive blue headlight edges, blue alloy wheels and special edition badging.
The theme continues on the inside with a premium interior that includes blue steering wheel stitching, unique headrests and a blue transmission shifter that complements the two-tone blue dashboard.
Other standard features include 270°-opening rear doors, the IVECONNECT multimedia system, a reversing buzzer, and fog lamps. Also included is a suspended driver’s seat with bench for two passengers, and automatic climate control.
Stunning appearance and functionality aside, the model features IVECO’s market-leading Hi-Matic 8-speed fully automatic transmission, coupled to IVECO’s powerful yet efficient 3.0 liter turbodiesel engine, which produces 170hp (130kW) of power and 430Nm of torque, delivering a seamless driving experience.
On the safety front, the Daily Blue features the superior stopping power of the front and rear disc brakes with ABS and IVECO ‘ESP 9’ safety program, which includes Electronic Stability Program, and a host of other active safety equipment. Passive safety features include four SRS Airbags.
IVECO Australia Marketing Manager, Darren Swenson, said that the limited edition Daily Blue presented great value and also provided tradies with a visually-unique van that would stand out from the crowd on the work site.
“The Daily Blue will be immediately attractive to our trade buyers courtesy of its long list of standard features and additional extended warranty, plus eye-catching styling,” Darren said.
“This van is an ideal work vehicle for a range of trade applications that require a generous, fully enclosed cargo area. With a volume of 12m³ there’s plenty of room for equipment and materials inside yet it remains car-like in the way it handles, manoeuvres and drives, which is preferable particularly when working in urban and metropolitan areas.
“Tradies who regularly tow a trailer will also appreciate the Daily Blue’s impressive 3200kg braked towing capacity, which is more than enough to haul a mini excavator, smaller skid steer or similar.”
