Is the Maxus T60 worthy of your consideration?

Maxus Philippines, which operates under Ayala’s AC Motors, has finally launched the Maxus T60, following numerous teasers from the Chinese automaker with British origins. The T60 enters the highly-competitive pick-up truck segment that’s dominated by Japanese and American nameplates, and it aims to stand out by offering capability and features at an affordable price.

As a recap, the Maxus T60 is the first pick-up ever built by SAIC Motor to be destined for global markets. From the outside, the T60’s front fascia is characterized by a bold grille, large headlights (which are LEDs with LED daytime running lights for the 4×4 Elite AT variant), along with a striking front bumper. All variants are fitted with 17-inch alloy wheels, roof rails, and automatic headlights.

On the inside, the Maxus T60 feels extremely sturdy and well-built. It’s also fitted with quite a number of standard features, too, such as a touch screen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, steering wheel controls, rear aircon vents, and cruise control. Meanwhile, the top trim 4×4 Elite AT gets a bigger 10-inch touch screen unit, auto climate control, passive entry with push-button start, leather seats, along with electronic adjustment for the driver’s seat.

Powering the Maxus T60 is a VM Motori 2.8-liter inline-4 turbo diesel engine that produces 150 hp and 360 Nm of torque. This is mated to a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission, the latter of which having a manual mode option.

Now, in terms of the pick-up’s drivability, the Maxus T60 does not veer away from the traditional pick-up architecture. It uses a front double wishbone suspension, rear leaf springs, and hydraulic power steering.

The Maxus T60 is also the first Chinese-manufactured pick-up to score a full five-star rating at the Australian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) due to its structure and safety features, such as ABS with EBD and electronic stability control. However, the PH-market T60 gets electronic stability control only on the 4×4 Elite AT variant. Other safety features include a rear view camera, ISOFIX child seat anchor points, and tire pressure monitoring on all variants.

The Maxus T60 is now available on all Maxus dealers nationwide and comes with a class-leading 5-year/100,000-kilometer warranty, along with a long maintenance interval of 15,000 kilometers. These prices currently include a P50,000 introductory discount, so if you’re interested in the T60, better hurry up to your nearest Maxus dealer.
