Maxus Philippines recently unveiled its newest additions to its Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) lineup -- the 2020 T60 4x2 Pro and 4x4 Elite pickups. Held in Arcovia City along Eulogio Rodriguez Avenue in Pasig City, the launch event also included an on- and offroad test drive activity to highlight the truck's capabilities.

"The T60 pickup has been engineered and designed to offer its owners and passengers maximum experience with maximum returns. Whether you’re an agripreneur, a contractor, an architect, or a business owner that requires a vehicle that will allow you to take charge of what truly matters in life," said Automobile Central Enterprise, Inc. (ACEI) President Felipe Estrella said during the program.
