The Iveco Daily is a large light commercial van produced by the Italian automaker Iveco since 1978; it was also sold as the Fiat Daily by Fiat until 1983. Unlike the more car-like unibody Fiat Ducato, the Daily uses a separate ladder frame typical of heavier commercial vehicles. The Iveco Daily is produced at the Iveco Suzzara plant, near Mantova in Italy, where Iveco has recently[when?] made substantial investments to renew the production lines.

The Daily is also the longest-running vehicle of the Iveco production and in over 40 years have sold over three million units. Today it is marketed in 110 markets around the world.[1]

Fiat 242

In 1978, Fiat presented a revolutionary vehicle called Daily. Light utility, succeeding the old Fiat 242 and Fiat 616, it immediately received a very favorable reception from users, who appreciated its excellent qualities of robustness and versatility. Its transformations for specific uses are numerous: panel van, chassis cab, double cab, etc.

When presented, the Daily was marketed as the Fiat Daily,[2] OM Grinta, and later the turbocharged version OM TurboGrinta,[3] and Alfa Romeo AR8 in Italy, Unic Daily in France, Magirus Daily in Germany, and in Switzerland, these were also sold by Saurer-Fiat and Saurer-OM as the Daily/Grinta,[4] with the small IVECO I logo at the bottom to the right of the grille, until 1982. Between 1982 and 1983, the IVECO logo prevails in the center of the grille, the Fiat or Unic brands being simply recalled at the bottom right.

When it was launched, the Daily range included 3 models: 30F8, 35F8 and 40F8. The first number represents the GVW of the vehicle expressed in Italian fashion, in quintals, i.e. 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0 tonnes. The "F" indicates FIAT, the engine manufacturer and the last digit corresponds to the engine power expressed in ten horsepower DIN.

Depending on its configuration, the useful volume of the long van version can reach 17 m3, which makes it a good successor to the Fiat 242 (Citroën C35 in France), whose production nevertheless continues.

In 1984, Fiat V.I., now IVECO, presented the Daily 4x4 range and, in 1985, launched the second Daily series, the TurboDaily.

Engines

Facelift

The facelift of the first generation Daily was introduced in 1990, with a totally revised cab and improvements on the Sofim engine (at that time, with a 2.5 L capacity). Following the entry of Ford's commercial operation into Iveco, in 1986, The Daily 3.5 ton was soon removed from the UK market as it was now direct competition with Ford's Transit, the Daily stayed on in the UK at rated above 4.0 ton, and now sold as the Iveco-Ford Daily. The Daily has no other connection with the Transit. Turbodiesel versions are called "TurboDaily."

The facelift of the 1º generation was facelifted in 1996; it differs only slightly exterior-wise, but the engine was now available in 2.8-litre capacity 76 kW (102 hp). The 59-12 (chassis cabs and panel vans) and 59-13 (minibus) models were launched (GVW 6.4 tons). All-wheel-drive variants were also made available.

With second series the Daily got new light groups (wider and lower). The Turbodaily name was dropped as all turbodiesels came with Unijet technology (common rail). Two new versions were released: "Agile", with automatic gearshift, and "CNG", a natural gas version. Also two new load classes were introduced: Daily 65 and Daily 28 (6.5 tons and 2.8 tons). The Iveco Daily was made "Van of the Year" for the year 2000.

The second generation of the Iveco Daily and the first generation of the Renault Mascott share many panels and some components of the cab, including the doors due to an agreement between Iveco and Renault stipulated in July 1994. The agreement provided for the production and sharing of common components for a total of 120 thousand pieces a year produced in the various factories of Brescia (Italy, Iveco), Suzzara (Italy, Iveco), Valladolid (Spain, Iveco) and Batilly (France, SoVAB Renault factory).[11]
