The P948k 2020 Maxus T60 Offers the Longest Warranty, Service Interval Among Pickup Trucks (w/ Specs)

Nine months since its corporate introduction and the launch of the G10 MPV and V80 van, Maxus Philippines is now adding a pickup truck to their line-up with the launch of the 2020 T60. Available in both 4x2 and 4x4 variants, they are the latest additions to the growing line-up of Maxus Philippines’s commercial vehicles.

Measuring in at 5,365 mm in length and 1,900 mm in width, the Maxus T60 is the longest and widest in its class, and together with its 2,500-kilogram towing and 1,040-kilogram payload capacity, it’s capable of meeting both private and business needs. Moreover, it boasts of an 800-mm water wading depth as well.

Across the line-up, the T60 is powered by a 2.8-liter diesel engine equipped with a Variable Geometry Turbocharger (VGT) and a Drive Mode Select with two modes. Generating 150 horsepower at 3,400 rpm and a maximum torque of 360 Nm from 1,600 to 2,800 rpm—it delivers sufficient pulling power. This engine is mated to either a 6-speed manual (4x2) or 6-speed automatic (4x2 and 4x4). Cruise control is standard.

The T60’s performance is backed up by a toughened construction with a laser-welded body. Moreover, is comes packing a wide array of safety features including dual SRS airbags, ABS with EBD, and backup sensors with camera. For the 4x4 variant, it adds electronic stability control and tire pressure monitoring.

Inside, Maxus’s pickup goes for a high value proposition with features such as 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, steering wheel controls, and rear aircon vents as standard. Moving up to the 4x4 adds leather seating with 6-way power adjustable for the driver, push-start with passive keyless entry, automatic climate control, and a larger 10-inch infotainment system with 6 speakers.

Automobile Central Enterprise, Inc. President Felipe Estrella said during the program, “On June 5, 2019, AC Motors, the automotive distribution and retail group of Ayala subsidiary AC Industrials, introduced locally the Maxus brand. From then on, the Filipino motorists got to know and experience Maxus’s 124 years of British heritage, British expertise and British excellence in the global commercial vehicle category. Moreover, the T60 pickup is produced by SAIC Motor which ranked among the top 10 automakers globally selling more than 7 million units in 2018. This is a testament to the global scale and acceptance of SAIC.”

The T60 is also the first pickup truck to get a 5-year / 100,000-kilomer warranty. Moreover, its PMS intervals is set at the first 5,000-km, and every succeeding 15,000-km or once a year, whichever comes first. Maxus Philippines also offers a 24/7 emergency roadside assistance, a pick-up and delivery service for customers, and on-site servicing for corporate fleet accounts.

The 2020 Maxus T60 is available in three variants: T60 4x2 Pro M/T, 4x2 Pro A/T, and 4x4 Elite A/T. They’re offered at special introductory prices of P 948,000, P 1,028,000, and P 1,278,000, respectively (these are less P 50,000 from their list price). Available colors are Agate Red, Lava Gray, and Blanc White for the T60 4x2 Pro, and Olive Green and Aurora Silver for the T60 4x4 Elite. Obsidian Black is available for both variants.

Maxus Philippines’ general manager Reginald See highlighted, “The addition of the T60 pickup to our growing model lineup strengthens our market foothold on the Light Commercial Vehicles category in the country as we now have virtually the entire range of models for business and lifestyle requirements—transporting people, cargo, or a combination of both in any road condition. More importantly, the T60 is packed with features at an entry level price. The pricing for the T60 highlights Maxus Philippines’ efforts to make a world class, feature packed and safe pickup be affordable for our customers.”
