LDV T60

What's on this page

LDV T60 Australia

The LDV T60 is a Chinese ute which first arrived in Australia in October 2017.

Originally a European marque (known as Leyland DAF Vans), LDV now belongs to Chinese conglomerate, SAIC. The brand clearly has its sights aimed at the big ute players in Australia with keen pricing, five-star safety and relatively high spec levels.

Pricing currently starts from $30,516 for the T60 PRO (4X4) with the most expensive T60 coming in at $42,095 for the T60 Trailrider 2 (4X4) D20.

At launch, the T60 was available in just two dual-cab variants, the Pro and Luxe, available in either auto or manual and were 4x4 only.

A single-cab variant was added in 2018 available in two- or four-wheel drive, with all variants powered by the same 2.8-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel.

LDV T60 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the LDV T60 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Why is my LDV T60 Luxe stuck in 4L?

    For reasons known only to marketing departments, the LDV, like most modern four-wheel-drive vehicles, uses a rotary knob to shift between two and four-wheel-drive and high and low-range. While old-school off-roaders of decades ago used a simple, mechanical lever to make these shifts, the modern rotary knob system relies on electronics and solenoids to effect the same shifts. When these solenoids go wrong or there’s an interruption to or glitch in the power supply, you can easily experience the symptoms you’ve noted.

    The LDV is by no means the only brand to suffer vague or phantom shifting with this system and a body-computer re-set may be required. The fault has nothing to do with you leaving it in 4H while it was parked for a few days. It’s also very unlikely to be an actual mechanical problem with the transmission. So make it the dealer’s problem; it’s a new vehicle, so the vehicle will be covered by warranty and it won’t cost you anything to have put right.

  • Why won't my 2018 LDV T60 start?

    It seems like the fix here would be an obvious one, but there’s a number of potential causes for a fault like this. Let’s start with the actual starter button. It could have failed internally. Or the starter motor itself might have either failed or simply had a critical wire fall off its terminal. Perhaps the immobiliser system is not arming the ignition as it should.

    And here’s one from left field: Is the transmission in Park? If it is and the engine still won’t turn over, try putting the selector into Neutral. Both Park and Neutral should allow the engine to start, but most people only ever try it in Park. You could also have a poor earth or iffy battery terminal which is allowing enough current to pass to illuminate the dashboard lights, but not enough to actually crank the engine over.

  • LDV T60: Problems with engine temperature

    How sure are you that the caravan weights 2000 kg when fully loaded? What gear do you use when climbing hills? Make sure you are not heavier than you think, and use a lower gear on hills rather than let the engine lug in an overdrive ratio.

  • LDV T60 2019: Brakes not working properly

    Have the dealer let you drive a demo vehicle and see if that is the same as yours. If it isn’t than have him investigate why yours is different; if it’s not it could be that it’s the way the LDV brakes are. You could take it to a brake specialist and have them give you an opinion on it, and maybe suggest a fix.
