As we reported previously back in June, there was a utility pick up on the way to be badged Renault/Dacia, and here it is.
Based on the same platform of the Nissan Navara NP300 and the soon to arrive Mercedes variant, the truck should be a worthy competitor for likes of Mitsubishi, Ford, VW and the mighty Hilux.


With a 187bhp four cylinder twin turbo dci diesel engine the truck will pick up its feet when requested. Power to the ground will be through a switchable four wheel drive system built for heavy off road use, lets not forget this is a utility workhorse. Towing weight is believed to be 3.5 ton and a payload of one ton.
Renault are aiming for the one base vehicle to spread across the commercial & lifestyle markets, offering single and double cab options, with a large list of options to include engines, electronic gadgets and of course trim specs.
Although a concept Renault are calling it a show truck, as they have confirmed the vehicle is going to be very close to the one displayed, probably minus the 21” alloys and body/door cameras ala3and such like.
Production is to start in Argentina, Brazil and Barcelona, Spain.
