Inside the cabin, there is a power steering with tiltable column and an adjustable driver seat. The GVW of the truck is 1,475 kg, while the payload capacity is 700 kg. Stopping power is generated by disc brakes and parking units offered too.
Talking about Mahindra Jeeto, the three Mahindra Jeeto ranges are the S-Series, L-Series and the X-series and they are differentiated based on load body lengths, payload ratings and engine specifications respectively. The mini-truck is so popular that in August 2018, the M&M announced that it crossed the one lakh production milestone.
