Renault Alaskan Concept previews a new global pick-up

As Europe’s number one Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) brand for the past 17 years, and in addition to its strong positions in the South-American and African markets, Renault Group is now shifting up a gear with a view to taking Renault Light Commercial Vehicle forward from being a top regional player to a top global player.

Renault has now decided to move into the pick-up market, a segment that accounts for more than one-third of global LCV sales.

The ALASKAN Concept here is a show truck which paves the way for a forthcoming model that will have a global calling.

Th new truck combines a payload of one tonne with athletic styling to meet the exacting needs of business users and individuals alike.

The design of its robust yet athletic sculpted sides includes prominent wheel arches filled with 21-inch wheels, a large, prominent logo, and a bonnet highlighted by four sculptured ribs that heighten the impression of strength.

The ALASKAN Concept is powered by Renault’s proven four-cylinder, twin turbo diesel engine which features in the existing Master range.

This new one-tonne pick-up will be unveiled in production form in the first half of 2016.
