IVECO has announced the availability of the ZF 8-speed automatic transmission (8HP) for the all-new Daily, voted “International Van of the Year 2015” at the 2014 IAA Show in Hannover.
The ZF 8HP has become the benchmark among passenger car automatic transmissions. Currently, it is used in more than 1,000 vehicle applications – from compact cars to full-size high-end luxury cars and pure sports cars. But Iveco and its new Daily with ZF’s 8HP prove that also completely different vehicle segments can benefit from these advantages. This is the first time an 8-speed automatic transmission is installed ex works in this model.
The eight gear steps together with the high spread of gear ratios guarantee that the engine speed and therefore also the fuel consumption stay at a low level. Not least, the 8HP always automatically chooses the right gear ratio to also tackle steep and twisty uphill routes with the vehicle without any problems.
