WE all know size doesn’t matter. Well maybe it does, especially when you’re talking dual cab utes. If you couldn’t get all your tools in the tub, or it wasn’t long enough to fit your trail bike upright, or worse still, the surfboards didn’t fit – then size really would matter.
To help you be big, LDV has launched a Mega Tub version of its T60, in the process delivering one of the longest wheelbases and tubs in its class, with only the RAM 1500 offering a larger space.
Available at a premium of just $1500 over the standard LDV T60 Luxe, the new variant is the solution to size issues, iwth a longer load space than the SsangYong Musso XLV or the upcoming VW Amarok XL.
“Size matters and by bringing the T60 Luxe Mega Tub to market we’re broadening our offering in the most competitive segment in Australia,” LDV Automotive GM Dinesh Chinnappa said.
“It’s clear owners want a vehicle that blurs the lines between weekend lifestyle and week-day workhorse. The T60 Luxe Mega Tub is the perfect ute to do just that.”
With an extra 315mm in the wheelbase and 275mm in the tray, the T60 Luxe Mega Tub has a total tray length of 1800mm, meaning bikes can stand upright and a typical 6ft tradie ladder fits neatly in the back.
It comes standard with an inner tray liner, while hard lids and roller tops will also be available. Importantly, the T60 Luxe Mega Tub is built on the same production line as the regular T60, ensuring the ride and handling mirror the existing T60 and Trailrider.
The Mega Tub model also receives the now standard suspension tune for the Australian market. The T60 was awarded a 5-Star ANCAP safety rating in 2017 and the Luxe variant boasts a plethora of standard safety equipment.
Bling spot monitoring, six airbags, a rear on-demand diff lock, key-less entry and start, leather trim seats and a 5-year 130,000km warranty all feature on the Luxe and Luxe Mega Tub models.
The 2020 LDV T60 Luxe Mega Tub is available from December 2019, with drive away pricing for ABN holders set at $28,990 and $30,990 for the manual and automatic in the base Pro model, and $33,490 and $35,490 respectively for the Luxe variant.
The new Luxe Mega Tub is priced at $34,990 or the manual and $36,990 for the automatic, while the Trailrider is $36,990 in manual and $38,990 in auto. Prices are drive away for ABN holders. Pricing is slightly higher for non-ABN holders.
