The Five Star ANCAP safety rated LDV T60 ute range has been boosted with the impending arrival of a manual 4WD single cab variant. Available in three colours white, silver and red, the T60 single cab chassis comes standard with six airbags, active headlights, tyre pressure monitoring, cruise control and a 2.8 litre diesel turbo engine by VM Motori.
Chairman of LDV New Zealand Rick Cooper says “At $26,990 plus GST the T60 Single Cab offers incredible value. Our first shipment of these single cabs arrive in April, and we have pre-orders from a variety of industries – bee keeping, rural contractors through to large fleet operators”.
LDV New Zealand offers an Australian manufactured alloy flat deck for an additional $3000 + GST. The alloy deck weighs only 148kg and internally measures 2550mm long x 1777mm wide.
All LDV T60 models come with a five year / 130,000km fully transferrable warranty with a 10 year anti perforation body warranty.
