Iveco has introduced five new models to its ready-bodied Driveaway range, which relaunched in September 2020.
Joining the existing range of dropside, tipper, Luton, curtainside and box body options are two new 3.5-tonne gross vehicle weight (GVW) variants and three 7.2-tonne GVW models.
New arrivals include a 3.5-tonne GVW caged tipper model, powered by Iveco’s F1A 2.3-litre 136hp engine with six-speed manual gearbox and twin rear wheels, featuring a 3,750mm wheelbase. Standard equipment includes Iveco’s Daily Construction Pack, which includes tyre pressure monitoring, sump guard, cross-axle differential lock, elliptical rear springs and towing electrics. The body features a side access door, tool box fitted behind the cab, rear barn doors with tailgate and remote control tipping gear.
The arboricultural tipper is powered by Iveco’s F1C 3.0-litre 160hp diesel, also with a six-speed manual gearbox, twin rear wheels and 3,750mm wheelbase. Equipment includes Traction Plus and Hill Descent Control as well as the Construction Pack. Body features include a toolbox fitted behind the cab, hinged aluminium ‘chip hood’, rear barn doors, a ladder rack, remote control tipping gear, a pull-out rear step, LED hazard beacon and towbar.
All three 7.2-tonne GVW models are powered by the 180hp variant of the F1C engine. Dropside and scaffolding dropside models both feature the Hi-Matic eight-speed automatic transmission, 5,100mm wheelbase and towing electrics as standard. Ladder racks are also standard equipment while the scaffolding dropside features six pairs of scaffold sockets.
The final 7.2-tonne GVW model is the tipper, equipped with a six-speed manual gearbox and featuring a 3,750mm wheelbase. It is also fitted with the Construction Pack as standard, while the body features rope hooks, graphene-infused paint, dropsides with removable centre pillars and in-cab tipping controls. Iveco claims payloads of 4,034kg and 3,835kg for the 7.2t dropside and tipper models respectively.
The latest additions to the Driveaway range are based on Daily Business trim, which includes manual air conditioning, cruise control, front fog lights and electrically heated and adjustable mirrors.
