Iveco launches the Daily 4x4

via FormaCar.
Iveco has started sales of the Daily 4x4, a heavy-duty truck designed for use far away from smooth roads.

The car boasts impressive approach angles, robust suspension, extremely short overhangs, a transfer case, and an all-wheel drive system (duh).

According to the media, the model comes powered by a three-liter turbocharged diesel engine capable of 182 hp (136 kW) and 430 Nm (317 lb-ft) of torque. Mated to a six-speed manual transmission, the engine can carry truck bed loads reaching 5,500 lbs (2.5 metric tons).

Iveco ships its Daily 4x4 in two cab versions, the cheapest one coming priced at a reasonable U.S. $74,350. The standard configuration includes 37-inch tires, plenty of off-road options, climate control, a multimedia system, heated seats, and more.
Story here AND a nice vid. 

Weird thing?  At the listed price I'm thinking it's delivering more than what I could get from Ford or Chevy.

It's not as luxurious as current American trucks but its spartan and tough.  I personally like it.

Don't know why but Europeans and ESPECIALLY Aussies have taken a different approach to civilian off road vehicles.  I think the Aussies have cracked the code but the Europeans are catching up.

As soon as we can get doctors and lawyers and car people with small penises that happen to drive 4x4's out of the truck market we'll get our groove back.
