Traditionally a maker of vans, LDV is branching out into other light commercial segments with the introduction of the LDV T60 ute and LDV D90 SUV.
The pair are set to arrive on our shores shortly with LDV announcing the launch dates of October 1 for the T60 and November 15 for the D90.
The T60 made its debut at the Guangzhou Motor Show, while the D90 has made an appearance in Australia for testing earlier this year and a preview of both will be given at a special event in Sydney in September.
Coming in October will be the 2.8 litre turbo diesel engine under the bonnet of the T60.
Further down the track the T60 range will feature a series of turbo diesel 4×4 dual cabs in manual and auto plus manual 2WD and 4WD cab chassis.
LDV General Manager Dinesh Chinnappa says it’s time to change their focus to keep up with the changing market.
“Since its launch in Australia LDV has focused on its van and people mover ranges with the V80 and G10 vehicles.”
“The ute and SUV markets are much bigger than the van market so the T60 and D90 will have much broader appeal across the whole country.”
LDV will release more details about pricing and specifications closer to launch.
