Car reviews - LDV - T60 - MAX Luxe


LDV’s gutsy T60 MAX might pack a punch, but does it have the polish?

6 Dec 2021

LDV recently updated its dual-cab ute – the T60 MAX – by introducing a refreshed exterior design, additional equipment, revised suspension tuning and a tweaked 2.0-litre engine, which is now the most powerful four-cylinder turbo-diesel (160kW/500Nm) in its class. 


With a more upmarket interior and a generous level of standard safety equipment, the T60 MAX is arguably the best value-for-money ute on the Australian market and one that competes in a segment the that brand itself recognises as a “critical battleground”.


The revised T60 MAX range is almost 10 per cent more expensive than its predecessor – prices begin at $33,990 drive-away (for ABN holders), but the Chinese offering is considerably cheaper than the segment’s best sellers when compared like for like.


To that end, the T60 MAX is well specified – and well supported by a generous factory warranty – and offers a comparable work ethic to its key rivals with a payload rating of between 750-953kg and braked towing capacity of 3000kg; it’s a pity, then, that only four tie-down points are fitted in the LDV’s tub.


LDV quotes a realistic fuel consumption figure of 9.3 litres per 100km on the ADR Combined cycle for models equipped with the ZF-sourced eight-speed automatic transmission and offers fixed-price servicing to ensure low ongoing running costs. 


It has also gone to great lengths to ensure the T60 MAX meets customer expectations on safety. To that end, it has fitted six airbags, emergency brake assist and electronic brake-force distribution, hill-descent control, LED DRLs, rear parking sensors and a reversing camera, as well as a fatigue- reminder function, across the range.


The range-topping Luxe tested here ($40,490) adds a 360-degree camera, lane-departure warning and an on-demand rear differential lock.
