The Chinese-made LDV T60 full-size Ute has been added to the burgeoning Ute market. Models will be available in a double cab, with four-wheel drive across the range and the choice six-speed manual or automatic transmission.
The initial LDV T60 range is powered by a 2.8 litre 110kW (150hp) turbo diesel engine matched to either a six speed manual or a six speed automatic transmission. All versions have four-wheel drive with high and low range.
There are two trim and equipment versions, PRO for the working Ute and LUXE for the dual purpose of work or recreational use. LUXE not only adds a range of standard equipment as befits the range-topping variant, it even has different suspension settings aimed at the recreational market, while the PRO has a set-up suitable for all-day, every day loaded and working. All versions are rated to tow up to three-tonnes with a braked trailer.
Safety measures include blind spot warning, six airbags, tyre pressure warning and a host of electronic safety gadjets, while more up-market fittings include a 254mm (10-inch) touch screen display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard, along with alloy wheels, side steps and roof rails.
LDV has also thrown in power windows, remote central locking and air-con as standard across the range, as are automatic height adjusting headlights that ensure they are always working at the optimum height, regardless of the load in the back of the T60.
The T60’s load tub is lined as standard with a tough, hardwearing and durable liner, with a total of six load tie down points, four at low level and two on the tub rim. As befits their different roles, the PRO has a multi-bar headboard to protect the rear window and provide support for long loads, while the LUXE has a polished chrome sport bar. Both models have roof rails as standard.
The arrival of the T60 LDV has raised the stakes on warranties, by taking it out to five years or 130,000km and including for the first time is a loan car program alongside the 24/7 roadside assistance.
LDV’s confidence in its latest model is also demonstrated by its ten-year body perforation rust warranty, demonstrating that the T60 will have a long and productive life, whether it’s going through the bush or on a building site.
