Chinese manufacturer LDV has unveiled its T60 trade ute at the Guangzhou International Motor Show ahead of its Australian debut in the second half of next year.

The T60 will arrive Down Under with a choice of double cab, extended-double cab and single cab variants in both rear- and four-wheel drive.

These will come with petrol and diesel engine options coupled to a choice of three manual and three automatic transmissions.

LDV is targeting Australia heavily with its T60 trade ute, which is built on a steel chassis with a 10-year rust warranty.

The company is expecting the T60 to receive a five-star ANCAP rating. It will be tested in Australia with six air bags, double pretensioning seatbelts, and a full range of electronic safety systems including parking sensors, a rear-view camera, 360-degree cameras and driver fatigue alarm.

Local pricing and specifications will be announced once the LDV T60 closer to its Australian debut.

LDV is a division of SAIC (Shanghai Automobile and Industrial Corporation), the largest and oldest automotive manufacturer in China.

SAIC acquired LDV in 2009, with the light commercial vehicle division born from the Anglo Dutch commercial vehicle company Leyland DAF and recently relaunched the MG brand.

It currently sells the G10 people-mover and van and V80 van in Australia.
