    21/03/2019
    THIS BARE-BONES BUT FIT-FOR-PURPOSE IVECO DAILY PANTECH IS WELL-EQUIPPED FOR BUSINESS-SAVVY FLEETS…After the double-takes, gawking and jaw-dropping stares provoked by the towering new IVECO Daily 4x4 that Trucksales reviewed recently, it felt like we were suddenly flying 'under the radar' in this distant cousin, the IVECO Daily 45/50C17.Fitted out …

    FOR SHEER OFF-ROAD ABILITY AND ROAD PRESENCE, IT'S HARD TO GO PAST IVECO'S RECENTLY UPDATED DAILY 4X4…It's childish, I know, but there's a certain satisfaction in pulling up alongside a standard 4WD or ute in IVECO's Daily 4x4.Our test vehicle, equipped as it is with chunky 37-inch mud-terrain tyres, fairly towers over most other vehicles on the road. …

    IVECO, THE INDUSTRIAL VEHICLE COPANY, HAS A LONG AND PROUD HISTORY OF TRUCK MANUFACTURING IN AUSTRALIA.

    Now that local production effort is stepping into a new-generation with an all-new Iveco ACCO and this new Stralis X-Way.

    The Stralis is no stranger to the Australian market, it’s been one of the best-selling trucks in the local market for a …

  • BIG ON FLEXIBILITY

    16/10/2018
    A VEHICLE THAT HAS BEEN SELLING WELL FOR THE IVECO BUSINESS HAS BEEN THE DAILY VAN. THE BIGGEST OF THE MODELS ON OFFER IS THE 70C WITH A SEVEN-TONNE GVM ON A 4,100 MM WHEELBASE. THIS IS THE MODEL POD TOOK FOR A DRIVE AROUND BRISBANE, THROUGH THE SUBURBS AND INTO THE CBD.

    One of the things that can be said about this van is, it is bloody big. With a seven …

    WITH A SEVEN-TONNE GVM AND A MASSIVE INTERNAL VOLUME, IVECO’S HIGH-ROOF DAILY 70C18V CARRIES THE MANTLE OF AUSTRALIA’S LARGEST VAN…

    There's no two ways about it: in the commercial vehicle world, size does matter. Well, size and payload – and price and whole-of-life costs, for that matter. And, with its Daily 70C18V, Iveco has …

  • IVECO POWERSTAR REVIEW

    06/07/2018
    AT LAUNCH, THE IVECO POWERSTAR WAS SAID TO BE THE ONLY BONNETTED TRUCK THAT FEATURES EUROPEAN RIDE, COMFORT AND HANDLING, AND OUT ON THE ROAD IT APPEARED TO DELIVER ON THAT CLAIM. BUT NOW WITH A FEW MILES UNDER ITS BELT HOW IS IT LIVING UP TO THE TASK?

    It was as I recall a little after 6.30am when Kevin Taylor turned the key in the green Powerstar and the 1 …

  • 2018 IVECO DAILY E6 70C VAN REVIEW

    07/06/2018
    I’VE ALREADY DECLARED THE IVECO DAILY A MUST-DRIVE PROPOSITION FOR ANYONE LOOKING FOR A VAN OR LIGHT TRUCK.

    From a van perspective, having a proper bulkhead behind the seats is a huge advantage over a lot of the standard one-tonne vans available.

    And, if you’re weighing a Daily up against a traditional Japanese cab-over light-duty truck, …

  • 2018 IVECO DAILY 50C REVIEW

    01/05/2018
    WHILE THE HILUX AND RANGER MAY BE BEST-SELLERS, THOSE AFTER A TRU WORKHORSE UTE WILL WANT SOMETHING LIKE THE IVECO DAILY 50C.

    Despite appearances, most dual-cab utes won't hold much over 1000kg in their trays. So, what do you do if you need a workhorse ute capable of carrying a stack of weight?

    The 2018 Iveco Daily 50C may be the answer. With a payload …

    THE SIMPSON DESERT IS AN ICONIC TRIP THAT FEATURES HIGHLY ON MANY A BUCKET LIST. MATT WOOD TACKLES THE TRIP ARMED WITH A COUPLE OF IVECO TRUCKS AND A FLEET OF DIRT BIKING LUNATICS.

    Against an early morning backdrop of glowing outback rock escarpments I rolled out of my swag to contemplate the coming day….and to have a wee.
