New Extended Frame range adds extra length
LDV is extending its Maxus range – in every sense of the word!
A new range of Extended Frame Maxus chassis-cab vehicles goes on sale from September.
The additional price rise for the Extended Frame version is just £450.
The range offers a wheelbase that is 750mm longer than the current LWB chassis-cab Maxus, as well as uprated rear axle, wheels and tyres.
The Birmingham-based van maker, now owned by the Russian GAZ Group, is launching the new Extended Frame range in its chassis-cab, dropside and Luton derivatives.
The extended frame lengthens the existing long wheelbase by 750mm.
“The Extended Frame range will provide a class-leading payload of up to 1,474kg alongside an internal load length of 4.20m for the Extended Frame dropside and 4.02m for the Luton,” commented Guy Jones, marketing director, LDV.
All Maxus chassis-cabs and dropsides will feature: 95PS, 120PS or 135PS engines. The Luton a 120PS or 135PS engine.
The Extended Frame range features an uprated rear axle, with the plated weight increasing to 2,300kg (standard 2,120kg).
There is also an uprated wheel and tyre assembly, changed to 205/75/R16 10 ply. The rear parabolic spring has increased free height, giving an improved departure angle.
Price increases have been pegged back to a minimum – the Maxus Extended Frame dropside and Luton vehicles are both only £450 more than standard dropside and Luton models.
All vehicles will come with Maxus One, LDV
