Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

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.”

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.
