The ute market in Australia is huge with many options for businesses looking for a workhorse to handle their daily duties. Holden Colorado, VW Amarok, Nissan Navara, Ford Ranger, Isuzu, Raptor and even Mercedes-Benz offer very popular utes in their ranges.
But as manufacturers compete for your business, many are including a wide range of the latest tech and comfort features which, while being appreciated, may significantly add to the price tag. With many businesses under cost pressures or at the very least being cost conscious in these challenging times, price is an important purchase factor. For self-employed operators, the cost of having a work vehicle and a separate car as their private drive is often not a viable option. The LDV T60 Trailrider may tick a lot of boxes for a lot ute buyers.
The price is in the lower range compared with many other manufacturers and when purchased with a cheap car finance deal from Jade Car Loans, that price is even more appealing. We take a quick look at the T60 to see if it ticks your boxes.
LDV is a Chinese car manufacturer which
They first launched the T60 ute in 2017 but the new 2020 model, known as the Trailrider 2, has a more powerful yet smaller engine and a number of significant improvements on earlier models. The T60 Trailrider 2 has a 4 cylinder, 2 litre D20 turbo diesel with 6 speed transmission and the design and style appointments can make the T60 quite acceptable for weekend recreational activities.
The stylish sports bar in matte black, accent design elements and 19” alloy wheels and a choice of 5 different colours add to the aesthetic appeal. The seating is comfortable and heated, and a 10” touchscreen should be an assistance with connectivity and efficiently getting on with your work. The interior tends to suggest a much higher price than the currently advertised.
Safety is well-considered with 6 airbags and loads of other inclusions such as blind spot monitoring on various models and a 5 Star ANCAP Rating from the original 2017 model.
This is a 4 door ute so the rear seating can take workmates or drop the kids at school. The load space is nearly 1500 mm x 1131 mm and is lined to protect the paintwork. There is another model in the T60 range – the Mega Tub Ute, for those that need to haul larger items.
But what is attracting a lot of attention is the price tag which can come in under $40,000 for business buyers. When compared with many others in this category which start around the $60,000 mark, the T60 price tag might be ticking some of your most important boxes.
What’s that price tag equate to in monthly repayments on a Jade Car Loans? For a rough ballpark estimate, head over to our car loans calculator.
