CHINESE brand LDV has announced the pricing of its tradie-spec T60 cab-chassis, with the 4WD variant retailing from $28,411 or $26,990 for ABN holders.
The budget-priced ute features the 2.8-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine good for 110kW and 360Nm. It’s mated to a six-speed manual transmission, with no auto available.

The suspension set-up comprises double wishbone (front) and heavy duty leaf springs at the rear. The 4WD variant has a kerb weight of 1720kg, a payload capacity of 1255kg and a 3000kg towing capacity.
It’ll most likely be used to carry tools to the worksite but, in terms of off-road functionality, the T60 has a 27-degree approach angle, 24,2-degree departure angle, 215mm of ground clearance and a wading depth of 550mm.
Other features include Hill Descent Control, Hill-Start Assist System, Roll Movement Intervention and a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System.
Pricing for Great Wall’s Steed was released last week, with the Chinese ute priced from $18,990 for ABN holders.
Unlike the Great Wall, however, the LDV T60 comes with a five-star ANCAP safety rating.
The T60 range comes with a five-year/130,000km warranty.
