The Iveco Eurocargo
The Iveco Eurocargo is one of the light to medium-duty trucks and has been on the market since 1992. It covers tonnages with a total weight of 6.5 to 20 tons. The Eurocargo is frequently used by logistics service providers such as Deutsche Post and DHL, as a dump truck in construction, and also as a 4 x 4 version by the German armed forces and the THW (German Federal Agency for Technical Relief). It is designed for regional distribution transport. Depending on the engine, 5-, 6- and 9-speed transmissions are available. The truck series is characterized by a low curb weight, which allows a higher payload. The reduction in weight is made possible by the use of composite materials for the driver's cab. Trucks in the Eurocargo series are often found as tippers with a gross vehicle weight of 7.5 tons, as refrigerated trucks, flatbeds or with box bodies. The tipper can be optionally equipped with a crane. Three cab variants are available: short, long and long with double cab. Trucks in the Eurocargo model family are optionally available as 4 x 4 with permanent all-wheel drive.

With tonnages of 18 to 26 tons, the Iveco Stralis is a medium- to heavy-duty truck. In terms of its weight class, it is positioned above the Eurocargo within the Iveco truck family. The Stralis truck series was built from 2002 to 2019, replacing the Iveco EuroStar and the Iveco EuroTech. In 2019, it was replaced by the Iveco S-Way. The engines used are mainly inline six-cylinder engines with a power range from 228 kW/310 hp to 420 kW/570 hp. With the Iveco Stralis NP, the manufacturer was the first to launch a truck with natural gas drive for long-distance transport.

The air conditioner can be operated with low consumption even when the vehicle is stationary, and there are about 30 stowage and storage compartments. A refrigerator with up to 50 liters capacity is available as an option.
The Stralis XP
The Stralis XP was developed specifically for long-distance transport. It offers fuel-saving eco tires, smart EGR and an optimized rear axle ratio. Smart EGR reduces consumption in the part-load range and lowers the temperature in the cylinder. It also enables cleaner combustion through early injection. The model also features GPS data-based cruise control that intelligently manages driving and shifting operations.
The Iveco Trakker
The Iveco Trakker is in the heavy truck weight class of 27 to 72 tons. It resembles the Stralis in appearance, but is nevertheless a separate truck series. Compared to the Stralis, it has a sturdier frame, reinforced axles and greater ground clearance. The Trakker is optionally available with a 4 x 4 drive. Its high permissible gross weight and optional all-wheel drive make it a sought-after truck in the construction and military sectors. The engines range from 228 kW (310 hp) to 412 kW (360 hp). The Cursor 8 engines with 7.8-liter displacement and Cursor 13 engines with 12.9-liter displacement, which are also familiar from other Iveco trucks, are used. Transmissions used are manual ZF 16-speed transmissions, Iveco Eurotronic transmissions and an Allison torque converter automatic. The interior of the Trakker cab is similar to that of the Stralis, but with a more robust design. Because of its ruggedness, the Trakker is a popular model with the Bundeswehr and other military organizations. The Trakker is optionally available as a 4 x 4 with permanent all-wheel drive.
