Iveco's Eurocargo range gets a componentry refresh


Iveco has added a new engine horsepower and transmission option to its medium-duty Eurocargo range, which it says provides operators "with added power while increasing transmission choices to better suit a range of applications".

The new higher power ‘Tector 7’ engine (pictured) is available on ML160 and ML180 variants and produces 320hp (239kW) at 2,500rpm and 1,100 Nm of torque at 1,250rpm, from the six-cylinder, 6.7-litre unit.

This new engine option increasesa power and torque by 40hp and 100Nm over the standard engine.

As with the other engines across the Euro 6 Eurocargo range, the latest addition meets Euro 6 measure using Iveco’s ‘HI-SCR’ system, a single after-treatment system featuring passive DPF (diesel particulate filter).

Iveco says the HI-SCR system is "simple, lightweight and efficient, and provides many benefits compared to EGR and SCR equivalents, including reduced fuel consumption and reduced tare weight".

"The system also uses fewer components for increased simplicity and does not require driver regeneration, providing reduced vehicle downtime."

Meanwhile the new transmission option, available across the range including ML120 models, is the ZF ‘Eurotronic’ 12-Speed automated manual and brings the number of transmission choices available in the range to three.

The other two choices are the ZF 9-speed manual and the Allison five-speed full automatic.

Iveco Australia product manager Marco Quaranta says the new specifications increase the appeal of the Eurocargo models and open up some new applications for the range.

"The availability of a 320hp/1,100Nm engine option, combined with the 12-speed Eurotronic AMT, provides a great package for operators wanting to tow a trailer," Quaranta says.

"The added output, plus broader spread of gears, delivers improved gradeability performance and makes the Eurocargo ideal for operators engaged in a range of metropolitan and intrastate work.

"For general freight and more specialised applications, such as car carrying or construction where operators may need to transport extra vehicles, cargo or small to medium machines, there’s now a Eurocargo to suit."

The latest specification options are available from Iveco’s dealer network.
