I don't know anything about cars/trucks but was curious as to what that button on the gear shifter is...Furiosa pulls it up just before entering the sand storm....and in the final chase Joe pulls it to get in front of the war rig...

In the orginal mad max world the switch turned the blower on and off....

In reality its a splitter switch used on trucks with hi/ low range split gear boxes or hi/low gear in the diff.

For a second I thought you'd be asking about the weird steering wheel there

It's either a splitter or range selector switch.

With it just being a switch it could be for anything. But generally a truck has the range selector and/or splitter switch there as you need to flick it between shifts.
