Renault have unveiled the Duster Oroch Concept at the ongoing 2014 Sao Paulo Motor Show. The concept was designed by Renault’s design centre for Latin America (RDAL) in Sao Paulo, and previews a “recreational pickup truck with enough room for five people and the robust stance of a true SUV.”

Renault has already announced plans to enter the South American pickup market with two models. These type of vehicles account for about 75 percent of the light commercial vehicle market in the continent, representing volumes of over 920,000 units annually.
Based on the popular Duster crossover, the Oroch gets a satin-white paint with orange touches and a more upmarket front fascia. Certain design cues have been carried over from the D-Cross concept shown at the 2012 Sao Paulo Motor Show.
Other features on the outside include a panoramic roof, protective roof rails, 18-inch wheels with 255/60 tires, and two rear-mounted cameras for outdoor coverage. A multimedia screen inside displays the video shot by the cameras in real time.
Renault says that the seats of the concept feature a new ‘Cover Carving’ technology which allows them for more intensive use. The dashboard, door panels and some parts of the seats are made from a new material that look like neoprene wetsuits.
Further details are to be found in the press release below.
