IVECO has added a new engine power rating and transmission option to its medium-duty Euro 6 Eurocargo range in New Zealand, extending its potential range of applications.

The new Tector 7 engine, available on ML160 and ML180 variants, now comes with 239 kilowatts/320 horsepower and 1100 Newton metres/811 pound foot of peak torque – a 29kW/40hp and 73 lb ft/100Nm output increase on the standard engine.

Like the other engines in the Euro 6 Eurocargo range, the new 6.7-litre six meets the E6 (Step D) exhaust emissions standard using IVECO's innovative Hi-SCR – a single aftertreatment system using a passive diesel particulate filter.

IVECO says that the Hi-SCR system is simple, lightweight and efficient – with benefits over EGR and SCR systems including reduced fuel consumption and tare weight. It also uses fewer components for increased simplicity and does not require driver regeneration, thus reducing vehicle downtime.

IVECO has added a new engine power rating and transmission option to its medium-duty Euro 6 Eurocargo range in New Zealand, extending its potential range of applications.

IVECO says that the Hi-SCR system is simple, lightweight and efficient – with benefits over EGR and SCR systems including reduced fuel consumption and tare weight. It also uses fewer components for increased simplicity and does not require driver regeneration, thus reducing vehicle downtime. 
The new transmission option, available across the range (including ML120 models), is the proven ZF Eurotronic 12-speed automated manual. It's the fourth gearbox option for the range, joining a ZF six-speed AMT, a nine-speed manual and a five-speed Allison auto.
IVECO NZ dealer principal Jason Keddie says that the new engine option, combined with the 12-speed Eurotronic AMT, "provides a great package for operators wanting to tow a trailer" – with a 32-tonne GCM rating available, on approval.
The added output, plus the broader spread of gears, also delivers improved gradeability performance and makes the Eurocargo ideal for operators engaged in a range of metropolitan and regional work, he says.
"For general freight and more specialised applications, such as car carrying, container or construction – where operators may need to transport extra vehicles, cargo or small to medium machines – there's now a Eurocargo to suit," Keddie adds.
IVECO Australia trialled four Eurocargos over the past two years, covering more than 400,000 kilometres, before adding the new specifications here.
