Ashwin Ram N P, Ashwin is a guy with a slightly unorthodox perception of everything. His struggle to choose a career path, between art and automotive engineering, has landed him in the field of auto journalism, where he has paved way for himself to practise both.

Has undergone 4,800 hours and 7,20,000 km of testing.

Renault of Brazil has released a video of Renault Duster Oroch featuring the endurance and several torture tests the brand’s first ever pickup truck has undergone during its development phase. The video also serves as a promo for the Duster pickup that has been launched in Brazil this week.

The Renault Duster Oroch is developed exclusively for the South American market.

Priced from R$ 62,290 (INR 10.18 lakhs), the Duster Oroch is an elongated and restyled version of the standard Duster crossover, with an identical interior.

The Oroch version, measuring 4.7 x 1.8 x 1.69 m (length x width x height), has an extended rear-end which hosts the loading deck that stretches the tape to 1,350 mm in length and 1,175 mm in width. The cargo area has a volumetric capacity of 683 litres and load capacity of 650 kg.

The Duster pickup has a payload limit of 650 kg in its 683-litre loading deck.

The crossover-turned-pickup has the same features offered in the standard model, including ABS, dual airbags, 7-inch Media NAV Evolution infotainment system with four speakers, electric mirrors, cruise control, parking sensors, and 16-inch alloy wheels.

Powering the Duster Oroch is the same flex-fuel engines doing duty in the SUV model. The 1.6-litre motor mated to the 5-speed manual transmission, produces 110 hp on gasoline and 115 hp on gasoline-ethanol blend. The 2.0-litre mill that comes with a 6-speed manual gearbox, generates 143 hp on gasoline and 148 hp on flex-fuel. The larger engined version of the Oroch will be launched with an automatic transmission later.

All variants have Front Wheel Drive configuration. A 4×4 variant will be introduced in the next phase.
