The LDV T60 Max Plus, an update to the existing T60 range, has introduced several new features, including a multi-link rear suspension, an updated interior, and the inclusion of autonomous emergency braking (AEB) for the first time in the series.

The vehicle retains the same 2.0-liter four-cylinder bi-turbo diesel engine as its predecessors, which delivers 160kW of power and 500Nm of torque. LDV has remapped the engine software to modify the power delivery.

The transition from a leaf spring to a multi-link rear suspension aims to improve the vehicle’s control and comfort. This change also brings an increase in payload capacity to 800kg for the Mega Tub version, 840kg for the manual, and 830kg for the automatic, as well as a ground clearance increase to 220mm.

The vehicle is available from $45,990 drive-away for Australian Business Number (ABN) holders for the manual version, with automatic and Mega Tub versions available at higher prices. New to the model are electric power steering with selectable modes and an electric park brake.

On the safety front, AEB is now standard on automatic models, a new development for LDV’s utility range. However, the manual variant does not include AEB, adaptive cruise control, or lane-keep assist, which are available on the automatic versions.

Interior upgrades feature a new 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system, replacing the previous 10.25-inch unit. This system is part of a newly designed assembly that also includes a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster.

The system runs on updated software, aiming to enhance user interaction. In automatic models, the introduction of a column-mounted shifter has allowed for alterations to the center console, including a new wireless charging pad and additional storage space.

The vehicle also incorporates increased soundproofing to reduce cabin noise and includes three USB ports for charging devices. Exterior updates include gloss black trim on various components and the addition of power-folding, heated exterior mirrors and a lockable tailgate.

With these updates, the LDV T60 Max Plus incorporates new technological and safety features while maintaining the core specifications of the T60 line, aiming to meet various user needs in the Australian market.
