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.

The mid-size 1-ton Renault Alaskan is based on the Nissan Navara and will be built at Nissan’s plant in Cuernavaca, Mexico.

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.”

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.
