- 2021 LDV Delivery 9 offers big cargo capacity
- Dimensions comparable to Mercedes-Benz Sprinter
- Wheelbase, roof, bus, and cab-chassis options
- Priced from $42,095 to $59,990 drive-away, with special deals for ABN holders
The 2021 LDV Deliver 9 has been revealed, undercutting the price of some of the biggest vans in the segment by up to $20,000.
Pricing for the mid-wheelbase (MWB) Mid Roof starts at $42,095 drive-away for the manual, with the automatic costing $43,148 drive-away.
LDV says it's going after the motorhome industry with the Deliver 9, offering a manual long-wheelbase (LWB) cab-chassis variant for $42,095 drive-away, or $44,726 drive-away for the auto.
Another market expected to receive a shake-up from LDV is the light bus segment. Car licence holders can get an 11-seater MWB Mid Roof for $55,770 drive-away, while those needing 14-seats can get a Mid Roof or High Roof bus for $57,884 and $59,990 drive-away respectively.
However, LDV is offering discounts for ABN holders, with the MWB Mid Roof manual to start from $39,990 drive-away. See the bottom of this story for complete pricing.
The new LDV 9 is powered by a 2.0-litre turbo diesel four-cylinder motor producing 110kW and 375Nm. A choice of six-speed manual or six-speed automatic sends power to the rear wheels.
All Deliver 9 vans get autonomous emergency braking, Bosch's latest electronic stability control system, lane departure warning, and front, side, and curtain airbags.
A rear parking camera with sensors come as standard, while a 10.1-inch infotainment screen offers Bluetooth and Apple CarPlay. Cruise control is also standard, but the optional automatic transmissions gain an adaptive cruise control system.
While the new van is closer in price to the Ford Transit and Renault Master, LDV says its new large van is designed to compete with the more expensive Volkswagen Crafter and Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, both of which cost in excess of $62,000.
In the cargo area, owners benefit from a low floor with non-slip steps, heavy-duty cargo mat, and recessed tie down points, and the rear barn doors open to 180-degrees.
For an additional $1500, buyers can choose the Option Pack, which comes with blind spot detection, lane change assist, keyless entry, and 236-degree opening rear doors.
