LDV Convoy Overview
The LDV Convoy is classed as a panel van and was produced by the British automobile manufacturing company LDV Limited. This vehicle was in production from 1997 – 2006 and followed on from the Leyland DAF 400 series. These vehicles are very popular as both panel vans and minibuses as they are well built and solid vans. These vans are also very cheap to buy and run compared with some competitors. They are very basic vans and are not as refined as some of their competitors such as the Ford Transit or Renault Trafic. Does this sound anything like your experience of the LDV Convoy?
LDV Convoy History
The LDV Convoy was a development of the Freight Rover 300 Series (1984-89) and then the Leyland DAF 400 series (1989-97). Freight Rover became part of Leyland DAF in 1987 to form the 400 series and then Leyland DAF was sold in 1993 to form LDV Limited which meant the formation of the Convoy in 1997. The Convoy was an advancement of its predecessor and was available in 2.8, 3.1 and 3.5 tonne versions. There would soon be several variants of the Convoy, including: pick up and minibus.
This vehicle was starting to look dated compared with some competitors and clearly needed a total redesign, so they decided to discontinue this vehicle and replaced it with the LDV Maxus in 2006 which is much more modern and able to compete with the competitors. The main selling point of the Convoy was its narrow design which meant it was good for driving around town.
The earlier engine available for this vehicle was the 2.5L Peugeot designed engine, which was replaced with the 2.4L Ford duratorq engine in 2002. The later 2.4L Ford duratorq engine was more economical than the Peugeot designed engine. Which engine did you have and how did it perform economically?
The LDV Convoy was available as a 5-speed manual, and this was the only gearbox available for this vehicle. We have a section of our website dedicated to LDV gearbox parts where you can search for your Convoy gearbox parts.
