Technology and efficiency

In all 4×4 versions of the L200 Triton line, the traction system is the Easy Select 4WD, which allows the option of three distinct modes of action: 4×2 – only rear traction, recommended for urban / road use and translates into fuel economy and lower noise level, 4×4 – all-wheel drive, ideal for low-grip tracks such as dirt, sand, gravel, mud etc., and the 4×4 with reduced – indicated for use in situations where full force is required, such as the transposition of obstacles, a task facilitated by the rear limited slip differential LSD Hybrid (with the exception of GLX 3.2 MT and GL 3.2 MT), which automatically transfers the traction to the wheel that requires force.

The front suspension is independent, with double triangular arms, hydraulic dampers, coil springs and stabilizer bar.

A car cover is of great essence to every automobile owner. They will make you save a lot since your vehicle will always be protected from external factors. With them, you will never witness scratches and writings on your sedan. Never overlook their importance at any given time.When a person wants to keep his or her vehicle looking great but they don’t have a garage to store it in, a canopy can provide their vehicle with a less expensive shelter that offers many of the same benefits as a garage. Canopies can protect the paint on a vehicle from tree sap, the sun, debris, pollen, bird droppings, or snow. They can also protect the interior of the vehicle from the effects of the sun on very hot days. Canopy garage kits are very simple to set up and dismantle with few tools needed.Canopy tops are available in several different types of material, but one of the best choices for a canopy top is laminated polyethylene or a vinyl-poly blend material. Polyethylene tarps provide some of the best coverage from the elements of all canopy top material. They are sold in several colors, sizes and shapes for different preferences. Blue and green are the most popular and least expensive colors, but they aren’t as durable as other colors. All reinforced polyethylene repels water and is mildew and rot resistant. Polyethylene material can last up to ten years or sometimes longer in a good climate.Mesh tarps are useful when people want to shade their vehicle but want air flow under the canopy as well. These tarps are not waterproof but when they are given a PVC coating, the material becomes stronger and gains protection from mildew and rot. Mesh fabric allows enough wind to flow in and out of the canopy so that it is less likely to blow over on very windy days. These tarps usually last between four and six years. Canvas tarps are considered very multi-purpose. They are lightweight yet strong. Canvas material is water-resistant to a degree, but can be treated to improve its water resistance. It is also mildew and rot resistant. Another great feature to these tarps is that they can be treated to be fire resistant. Cotton duck canvas is the strongest type of canvas tarp available.

Metal or aluminum carport kits can be purchased with all the parts needed to assemble them if one would rather have this type of canopy cover for his or her vehicle. Of course metal is the strongest building material of the two, but aluminum is very durable as well. Aluminum is the least expensive of the two materials. One disadvantage to purchasing an aluminum carport is that this type of shelter can have problems with structure and corrosion if they are used in harsh climates.The words canopy and carport are sometimes used interchangeably. A person can choose between a full-size canopy or half-size canopy to cover just the top of a vehicle. The canopies or carports can be just a roof attached to metal legs or they can be more like a garage with fabric to cover the sides of a vehicle.Although a garage built by a contractor is very nice, not many people can afford to purchase one in today’s economy. There are other more affordable options available for a person to provide both shade and shelter for his or her vehicle. Protecting a vehicle from all elements will help maintain more of its value for a longer period of time.
