A Driver-Focused Cockpit
The driver-focused cockpit includes both comfort and functional features. The driver's seat is mounted in a high "commanding" position that is easy to get in and out of and provides a good view of the road and surrounding environment. The 6-way adjustable seat with manual lumbar and armrest is designed for durability with outboard vinyl wear patches. The passenger's seat is a four-way adjustable design. Height-adjustable front seat head restraints and front door map pockets are also standard.

Recessed storage areas are provided on the upper instrument panel for folders and documents. In addition, the passenger seat folds down to serve as a worktop or lunch table, or it extends the cargo space for hauling longer items such as pipe or lumber. Passenger seat slide travel is nearly 9.5". The durable 15x13" tray built into the seatback can fit most laptops and includes a penholder for use as desk.
Power windows with auto up/down are standard, as is the 12V power outlet on the instrument panel. An additional 12V power point in rear of center console is also available.
