Eurocargo is a range of medium tonnage rigids and tractor units manufactured by Iveco since 1991. It replaces the Z series (Zeta) commercialized by Fiat-OM (old branch of the Fiat group) from 1977 to 1990 and quickly becomes successful : the truck won the “Truck of the Year” award in 1992.
Multipurpose distribution truck, the Eurocargo is equipped with a 4- or 6-cylinder diesel engine ranging from 130 to 280 hp, its GVWR ranges from 6.5 to 19 tons depending on the model.
In 2000, the Eurocargo’s cab is redesigned and the truck is equipped with an Iveco Tector engine. As of 2006, when the Euro 4 norm took effect, it benefits from the SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) system with Adblue injection, which reduces the particulate emissions.
In 2013, Iveco introduced the Euro 6 Eurocargo trucks. These vehicles benefit from the “common rail” injection, a high-pressure electronic system that helps reduce the fuel consumption.
