Riley Riley

LDV has upped the ante with the launch of a Limited Edition T60 Trailrider 4×4 ute with Australian tuned suspension.

Developed by the Walkinshaw Automotive Group in Melbourne, the suspension calibration has been refined to produce ride and handling that is more in tune with Aussie preferences.

Priced at $38,937 driveaway for the manual or $41,042 driveaway for the auto, only 650 examples will be built.

Based on the range topping LDV T60 LUXE, the Trailrider arrives in dual cab, with 4×4 as standard and a choice six speed manual or automatic gearboxes.

It’s powered by a 2.8-litre 110kW turbo diesel that produces 110kW of power and 360Nm of torque, the latter from 1600 revs.

All versions have four-wheel drive with high and low range while the Trailrider adds a rear on-demand differential lock.

And all versions are also rated to tow up to 3000kg.

The Trailrider package includes 12 spoke, 19 inch black wheels, along with a black nudge bar, sports bar and side steps.

Completing the look is a black grille , with unique Trailrider decals for the sides, rear and bonnet.

It also comes with a lockable roller tonneau for the load tray which has a tough, durable liner, with a total of six load tie down points.

Safety features include a 360 degree camera, blind spot warning, and six airbags.

The equipment list includes leather trim, with six-way power adjust for the front seats, climate control air conditioning, 10.0-inch touch screen, keyless entry and starting, cruise control, automatic wipers, auto dipping rear view mirror and adaptive, dusk sensing headlights, with door mirrors that are heated and fold automatically when the car is locked.

T60 comes with a 5-year 130,000 km warranty, with roadside assistance and a loan car program for for the first time.
