It may still be regarded by some as a new kid on the block, but LDV’S T60 4x4 ute is what is referred to as a “fast burner”. Here is a ute which has come out of nowhere and is rapidly closing on both Mazda’s BT-50 and Volkswagen’s Amarok in yearto-date registrations. The T60 is available in two specification levels with the option of sixspeed manual or auto in both. Body styles include a double cab and a single cab chassis, powered by a 2.8 turbo-diesel with 110kw and 360Nm torque at its disposal. Well specified – especially in the top end model, which offers lane departure warning, cruise control, Apple Carplay and Android Auto integration, along with heated leather seats, reversing camera, blind spot monitoring and an electronic differential lock to mention but a few – the T60 delivers when it comes to payload too, hauling 1025kg in the 1188 litre rear tray.
