The LDV T60 Max receives some additional equipment for 2023, but this also comes with significant price increases.
Drive-away pricing for ABN holders is up $4000 across the board, with the range now opening at $38,990 drive-away. Private buyers also see an increase of $4210 compared to the 2022 T60 Max.
No extra safety equipment has been added, and in fact the T60 Max is actually missing a key feature – blind-spot monitoring – that was present on older T60s.
This also means the T60 Max is the only nameplate in its segment to miss out on autonomous emergency braking; the Mitsubishi Triton also lacks this important feature in a couple of low-end grades, but it’s standard fit in dual-cabs
The base Pro gains side steps, chrome roof rails and a stainless steel sports bar.
The Luxe also gains side steps, as well as a soft-release tailgate, gloss black roof rails, a black sailplane, and black wheel arches, though it loses its chrome door mirrors for body-coloured units.
The black treatment also extends to the Luxe’s new 19-inch alloy wheel design, while inside there’s an updated leather-wrapped steering wheel with paddle shifters on auto models.
All up, LDV says Pro models have an extra $2600 of additional value and Luxe models have over $5000 worth.
The T60 Max is the second LDV model to get a seven-year, 200,000km warranty, following the announcement of the new warranty’s debut on the MIFA people mover.
It replaces the outgoing T60’s five-year, 130,000km warranty.
LDV says supply of the T60 Max has been improving and should further improve into 2023. Sales have been increasing, and the company says it expects the Pro auto to drive much of the demand for this model next year.
The company has released pricing for a resurrected Mega Tub model: $49,463 drive-away, or $46,990 drive-away for ABN holders. However, it hasn’t released any additional information on this variant.
