With another National Fieldays done and dusted for the year it is an opportune time to reflect on the current state of New Zealand’s primary sector.
Those who are undecided might get a reason to make up their minds when they see a limited edition steed at Fieldays.
The Triton Charger-X is based on the top-of-the-range GLS, offering a premium package in only 300 examples in May and June.
Hi-grade leather upholstery is complemented by a 7 inch touch screen display for satnav and rear vision, while a stunning decal package makes this vehicle stand out from the crowd.
The 2.4L DID Mivec engine offers up 135kW and 437Nm of torque, providing excellent power-to-weight ratio and achieving a miserly 7.6L/100km fuel use.
The SuperSelect 4WD system includes all the usual choices, has the ability to be driven on-road in 4WD mode for grip and safety, and combines a diff lock function for when it gets really tough.
Safety gear includes seven airbag functions (ATC, ASC, ABS and EBD) and the vehicle has a 5-star ANCAP safety rating.
For those looking to do work, 1 tonne of stuff can be accommodated in the 2.23 sq m tray, said to be the longest and deepest in class, and payload of 3.1t should not see anyone complaining.
