The latest entrant into Australia’s booming ute market
It is confirmed that the Australian arrival of the all-new LDV T60 is set to hit our shores in October 2017. The LDV T60 will offer excellent value for money and will offer a range of single and double cab, two and four wheel drive, manual and automatic versions with two trim and equipment versions.
The LDV T60 was revealed last year at China’s Guangzhou International Motor Show. It’s an all-new vehicle that will not only launch the Chinese commercial vehicle specialist manufacturer into a new market sector, it will also take it into new parts of Australia.
The LDV T60 will sit right in the middle of the key Ute market sector in terms of size and performance. At 5.3 metres long and 1.9 metres wide and with a 110 kW 2.8 litre Turbo Diesel engine the buyers will love it. When it comes to equipment, features and pricing, the T60 will continue the LDV market position of 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.”
The T60 model line-up for the launch will include a range of 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 to ensure coverage of the market from working business vehicles to recreational and family transport. They’re good for more than one purpose.
