If it's no frills, hard working muscle you need, the LDV gets the job done.Up front its got a never-say-die 47kW engine linked to an economical five-speed gearbox. While at the back, an extra tough high-tensile steel loadbox takes everything from boxes to bricks. No matter what you are loading, rear wheel drive gives power where it's needed most - directly under the load. In any conditions, from the unforgiving city to the punishing heartland. And when it's all over, it'll leave you with enough fuel to do it all over again.
