*Australian Specs - UK specs to be announced* The LDV T60 is set to hit UK showrooms in September 2019 and, ahead of its launch, we’ve given exclusive access to test out the very first one to land on our shores. Built in China, the LDV T60 is imported by the Harris Group, who have around 40 dealers in the UK.
Forget Chinese vehicles of the past (Great Wall Steed, we’re looking at you!), the cab and interior is extremely stylish and its fitted with all the latest mod-cons. Although slightly narrow, the cab is extremely spacious and the low-sitting windows and dashboard let in plenty of light and provide great all-round visibility.

Our version was furnished with air conditioning, reversing cameras, electrically-headed and adjustable door mirrors (which fold when locked), adaptive cruise control, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, heated seats and an eight-way adjustable driver’s seat.
Under the bonnet is SAIC’s (Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation) 2.8-litre turbo-diesel engine, developing 150hp and 360Nm with three driving modes; normal, eco and power. It generates the rumbling groan and drinks the diesel at a rate you’d expect from a brutish 2.8, but it doesn’t produce the goods; even in ‘power’ mode we found it to be quite sluggish.

However, LDV has stated a new 2.0-litre engine – produced in conjunction with VM Motori of Italy – will be used to power UK models. There is the choice between rear and four-wheel drive and between a five or six-speed manual and a six-speed automatic.
By employing a heavy-duty ladder chassis and leaf springs at the rear, the T60 will have a one tonne payload and a towing capacity of up to 3.0 tonnes on four-wheel drive models. The load bed is quite short at 1,485mm (extended to 1,800 on the extended cab), although it is quite wide at 1,510mm and deep at 530mm).

      This is not a review. This is a home video of a recreational drive.

      Ah such a shame.

      The first 10 seconds started off so promising.

      Great filming and quality but Terrible music I just had to skip thru it in the end and NO speech or Opinion which is what everyone is here for.

      Would be great if you could reuse this footage with your drive impressions dubbed over the top instead of that music.

      Little anemic I think. Dirt road and off are not the same thing.

      Lose the music and SPEAK! Also your "off road" was hardly a challenge

      Shame that you think watching the vehicle driving around is enough.
      You had the chance to do a proper commentary.

      No one has really done a warts’nall proper review of the T60 off-road. I was hoping this was it. Thanks anyway.
