International supply chain company Dawsongroup plc has placed an order for 270 3.5-tonne IVECO Daily vans to give its customers further choice in 2023.
The shopping list includes chassis cab models equipped with luton boxes, single and crew cab tippers, dropsides, and tool pod tipper bodies, highlighting the huge range of applications for the Daily. An impressive 1,154kg payload and 3.5-tonne towing capacity will enable Dawsongroup customers to complete even the most demanding of missions.
Supplied by Northern Commercials, the IVECO Daily models are powered by a 140bhp 2.3-litre diesel engine, balancing good fuel economy with a strong 370Nm of torque. Many of these vehicles will be working with construction and utility companies, so taking advantage of the Daily’s new durable manual gearbox was an ideal choice. Clutch endurance has been improved by 18% versus the previous model while gear change motion is even more precise with free play reduced by 50%. This added robustness also results in 350,000km oil change intervals.

Safety and comfort are essential for Dawsongroup, with every IVECO Daily featuring the residual-boosting business trim level which features as standard manual air conditioning, cruise control, fog lights and electrically heated and adjustable door mirrors. Also standard are hi-adaptive memory foam seats that reduce pressure peaks by up to 30%. This boosts comfort behind the wheel and reduces fatigue. They also feature ‘city mode’, a system that minimises steering effort for operators as they take full advantage of the Daily’s class-leading turning circle.
