Second and third generation Eurocargos were released in 2002 and 2008, respectively
In 2008, a number of transmission options became available including 5, 6 and 9 manual transmissions, and an automatic transmissions as well.
Three cab variants are available: short, long and with a double cabin.
In 2016, the Iveco Eurocargo received the “International Truck of the Year” award. One of the reasons the award was given was that the Eurocargo was the only medium-weight truck that was able to meet the Euro VI emission control requirements whilst having a considerably less complicated exhaust system. In addition, the total cost of ownership for the model was calculated to be considerably less for the Eurocargo than its competitors.
