LDV’s T60 Pro and Luxe utes have ar­rived in Aus­tralia

Earthmovers & Excavators - - News -

LDV’s new dual-cab, four-door, bud­get-priced T60 ute has landed in Aus­tralian showrooms. The ute is avail­able in two trim lev­els, Pro and Luxe, with each pow­ered by a 2.8-litre tur­bod­iesel 4-cylin­der ca­pa­ble of gen­er­at­ing 110kW and 360Nm.

The engine can be mated to ei­ther a 6-speed man­ual or 6-speed au­to­matic trans­mis­sion, and each vari­ant in the line-up has four-wheel drive with high and low range.

The Pro is set up as a work­ing ute, with a heavy­duty sus­pen­sion setup (front and rear); the Luxe is aimed at the re­cre­ational mar­ket, with softer sus­pen­sion to suit.

The T60 has a pay­load ca­pac­ity of 1025kg (man­ual Pro), 995kg (auto Pro), 875kg (man­ual Luxe) and 815kg (auto Luxe), and each model is rated to tow up to 3000kg. Each model also has 215mm of ground clear­ance and ap­proach and de­par­ture an­gles of 27 and 24.2 de­grees.

The T60’s load tub is lined as stan­dard with a hard-wear­ing liner and has six load tie-down points: four at low level and two on the tub rim. The PRO has a multi-bar head­board to pro­tect the rear win­dow and pro­vide sup­port for long loads.

In ad­di­tion to the sus­pen­sion tune, the Luxe dif­fers from the Pro thanks to the ad­di­tion of var­i­ous niceties in­clud­ing leather trim, cli­mate con­trol air-con and key­less en­try.

Stan­dard equip­ment across the range in­cludes a tyre pres­sure warn­ing sys­tem, al­loy wheels, side steps and roof rails, as well as a host of elec­tronic safety fea­tures and in-cabin lux­u­ries.

Chi­nese-owned LDV has in­creased its war­ranty to five years and 130,000km, and now in­cludes a loan car pro­gramme along­side the 24/7 road­side as­sis­tance. The ute also has a 10-year body per­fo­ra­tion rust war­ranty.
