2018 LDV T60 Luxe 4x4 automatic review: Owner loaner

Australia’s love affair with utes shows no signs of slowing, presenting a prime opportunity for new entrants like the LDV T60 to slot in. While the Chinese brand is far from a household name right now, it could be just one convincing product away from success. Could the T60 be the one?

2017 LDV T60 Pro (4x4) review

Great vehicle – the ride is a little stiff, but smooths a little after a bit of use. It rides better with a load, and when towing I press the power button and it performs as well as the best.

The T60 has now got 15,000km since I bought it in January, and so far has proven to be a very reliable addition to my business...
