First seen at last year’s Guangzhou International Motor Show in China, the LDV T60 will be on sale in Australia in October.
Chinese manufacturer LDV says its T60 range will include turbo diesel powered 4WD dual cabs with both manual and automatic transmissions, as well as 2WD and 4WD cab chassis with manual transmissions. There will be two trim and equipment levels.
“This model line-up covers the significant part of the market and these versions will be joined by additional variants as required to meet changing market demands,” says Dinesh Chinnappa, General Manager of LDV Australia.
The T60 is 5.3 metres long, 1.9 metres wide and is powered by a 110 kW 2.8 litre turbo diesel engine. LDV is promising value for money pricing and above average equipment, trim and features.
“It is too early to provide specific price points for the new LDV T60 range,” explains Dinesh Chinnappa. “But we are determined that it will build upon the value for money proposition of the LDV van range. The T60 will provide Australia Ute buyers with a highly competitive new choice, whether they are looking for a working Ute or a recreational family vehicle. The T60 will become the top selling model in our range and significantly increase our sales volumes in Australia.”
All LDV vehicles come with a three year 100,000 km warranty with 24 hour roadside assistance and are supported by a growing nationwide dealer network, backed by Ateco, Australasia’s largest independent vehicle distributor.
