The range-topping models come with a revised Super Select system that enables the driver to switch between two-wheel drive and all-wheel drive at speeds reaching 100 km/h. As for the double cab models, they offer a payload capacity of between 935 kg and 980 kg. Safety-wise, the new Triton has been given a five-star rating mostly thanks to stability control and traction control, as well as its seven airbags.
