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