    Default Iveco Daily 4x4

    This looks like a pretty interesting platform. 24 forward gears, 4 reverse, common rail diesel, comes in crew cab etc. I know the platform has been around for a while, but seems like this is a pretty new variant . . .

    Anyone know anything about them?

    Too bad is right. I really like the look of the double cab.

    The IVECO 4x4 has been around awhile. Bjorn, how is your German, here is an interesting link from Switzerland

    http://home.datacomm.ch/iveco.web/fram_reis.htm

    A few years back, I saw one of these IVECO 4x4 Dailys set up as a camper for a round the world journey, it was very impressive

    IVECO is noted for their CRD diesels. They have just opened up shop here in the US but will only sell you a diesel engine. These engines are plug and play, come with the computer and all, just put them in your piece of equipment and off you go.

    I have a SUV that is IVECO based. In Italy, Rayton Fissore, had IVECO shorten a 4x4 Daily chassis, and put on a body penned by Tom Tjaarda, same guy that did the Pantera and many Ferraris and Lamborghinis. Sounds like a winning combination? Well .... no, they changed it for America. The CRD diesel, out, and replaced with a Ford small block, 5 speed - gone, replaced with an automatic transmission. Best of all, they marketed as an upscale SUV, rode like a truck, heavy, underpowered, and best of all Italian electrics, and they named it a Laforza (cringe). It is rather entertaining to drive, some of the Italian charm lingers.

    I agree, it would be nice to have IVECO back again.

    Here's what you need. It's a Canadian LSVW lightweight truck. Iveco made them and Western Star IIRC imported them for the Canadian military. It's not a Daily, as such, but that's what I thought it was when I first saw one on maneuvers here in Floriduh.
