Alleged production-spec Renault Alaskan snapped undisguised – Spied
Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
Confirmed to go on sale in H1 2016.
Following the launch of the Duster Oroch in South America, Renault will be entering the global pick-up segment with the mid-size Renault Alaskan in the first half of 2016, which has been revealed as a concept in September. Courtesy of Ferd, here is a first look at the front-end of the production-spec Renault Alaskan.
Upon first glance, the front-end looks largely similar to the concept model, save for production-spec elements. It features the familiar Renault face with large, swept back projector headlamps, that flow into a V-shaped grille, fog lamps with chrome accents and a silver skid plate.
The production-spec Renault Alaskan rides on the same platform and feature the internals of partner brand Nissan’s Navara pick-up truck. Renault said the Alaskan differs in positioning, and is a “high-end pick-up for business and leisure use, as well as for everyday motoring.”
The engine lineup could include the Energy dCi 135 and/or Energy dCi 165 four-cylinder, longitudinally-mounted twin-turbodiesel engines from the Renault Master LCV range, which Renault confirmed at the concept’s unveiling. Renault have also confirmed that the Alaskan will have a maximum payload of 1,000 kg, and would come in a broad range of body types.
