The Renault Duster Oroch will be powered by a 1.6 or 2.0-liter four cylinder engines sourced from the Duster. Although official power figures haven’t been released, it could be identical to the Duster SUV’s numbers, where the 1.6-liter engine produces 115 hp and paired to a 5-speed manual, while the 2.0-liter flex fuel unit delivers 148 hp and 177.5 Nm of torque on ethanol or 142 hp and 168 Nm on gasoline through a 6-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic. Other than the standard 4×2 drive system, Renault will also offer an optional 4×4 system.
