Pricing for the LDV T60 cab-chassis has been announced, with the Chinese ute to retail from $25,253 drive-away – less, if you’re an ABN holder.
There are two options for T60 cab-chassis buyers: two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. The 2WD T60 will cost $25,253 drive-away, or $23,990 for ABN holders. The 4WD model retails for $28,411 drive-away, or $26,990 if you’ve got an ABN.
Power in both models comes from a 2.8-litre turbo-diesel engine making 110kW and 360Nm, hooked up to a six-speed manual transmission. The ute will tow three tonnes – 1.3 tonnes more than the Great Wall Steed cab-chassis announced last week – and boasts a 1255kg or 1145kg payload in 4WD and 2WD guise respectively.
Eagle-eyed readers will notice that 2WD payload capacity is less than the 1198kg offered by the Steed.
Standard equipment includes Bluetooth phone connectivity, cruise control, air-conditioning and heating, and a 12V socket.
Dusk-sensing headlamps, tyre-pressure monitoring and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror are included, too. Oh and cloth trim, manually-adjusted seats and a height-adjustable steering wheel are also listed among the amenities. Frills? None!
Speaking of which, there is no options list for the T60 cab-chassis, and it comes in white only.
LDV is looking into demand for an automatic, but says the market is manual-dominated.
