World debut for 4x4 Iveco New Eurocargo variant 13 April 2016

Iveco launched the 4x4 variant of its New Eurocargo mid-weight truck in Europe yesterday (12 April 2016) at the BAUMA construction event in Munich.

Also on its huge stand – shared with sister brand CASE Construction Equipment – was the new Daily 4x4 steel tipper, the Trakker 26-tonne 6x6 tipper and the Astra HD9 8x6 rear dumper tipper.

The Eurocargo 4x4 on show was a 15-tonner designed for off-road work, and is available with day or sleeper cabs in 11.5- or 15-tonne gvw versions with wheelbases rangign from 3,240 to 4,150 mm.

Power plant choices are the Tector 7 engine delivering 220 or 250bhp in the 11.5-tonne version, or 250 or 280bhp for the 15-tonner – all with Iveco’s SCR (selective catalytic reduction ) and passive DPF (diesel particulate filter).

The rest of the driveline comprises ZF six-speed manual gearboxes with a servoshift system complemented by permanent four-wheel drive with a longitudinal differential and fast or slow ratio selection plus three diff locks.

Off-road protection features include steel bumpers, retractable access steps and a tough new radiator guard – and the new 4x4 is also equipped with a front towing jaw while a PTO is also available.

Incidentally, the steering angle (ranging from 40 to 48 degrees, depending on tyres) means the 4x4 Eurocargo should work well on urban roads, not just off-road.
