The third generation Iveco Daily was launched in 2006, but unlike the previous model it didn’t stayed too long around as was shortly replaced by the actual model in 2009.
Just like the previous model, the third generation Daily was also constructed using a ladder frame chassis configuration with maximum gross vehicle weights (GVW) of up to 6.5 tonnes.

TheIveco Daily is without a doubt the toughest van from the road. The company is specialized in building big trucks and the Daily is the only van in its lineup. Thanks to its rugged character and the heavy duty origins, we can say that The Daily it’s like a big truck scaled down for light commercial purposes. The vehicle is also much stronger than its rivals and features a ladder frame chassis which is a configuration that’s usually used by trucks.
The vehicle has a long history behind it with the first generation being sold between 1978 and 1993. The subject of this review is represented by the second generation that was available between 1993 – 2006.

The Iveco Daily is one of the most versatile LCVs from the market and besides the typical van and pickup versions, the model is also available in off road guise.
Thanks to its huge ground clearance (30 cm) and the capable 4x4 system, the Iveco Daily was engineered to be able to conquer the most difficult terrains regardless of what weight is carrying at the back.
