Our test vehicle is the Daily E6 70C single cab-chassis which has the highest load ratings of the two models offered. It’s armed with the top-of-the-range 210EVID 3.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel and ZF Hi-Matic eight-speed torque converter automatic options, for a list price of $80,707. It’s also equipped with an optional single passenger seat, which like the driver’s seat is suspended, heated and fully adjustable, at extra cost.
Standard equipment includes an intelligent electronic parking brake, electric windows, heated exterior mirrors with electric adjustment and indicators, height-adjustable flat-bottom steering wheel, cordless mobile phone charging, daytime running lights, keyless entry/central locking and a new driver’s hi-res colour instrument cluster with seven dedicated screen menus providing more than 100 points of vehicle information to name a few.
Its six 16-inch steel wheels (dual rears) are fitted with 225/75 R16 tyres and there’s a full-size spare carried under the rear of the chassis frame. There’s also a large choice of individual options, plus four equipment upgrade packs which allow buyers to benefit from the ‘bulk-buy’ value of grouping options.
