After introducing the Duster Oroch earlier this year, Renault is now taking the wraps off the ALASKAN Concept which marks a further step forward in its bid to win over customers in the constantly-growing pick-up market. Pick-ups account for around one-third of total LCV sales and open up a fresh front for Renault’s product offensive.
The ALASKAN Concept is a striking show vehicle that paves the way for a pick-up that will have a global calling. It combines a payload of one tonne with cutting-edge, athletic styling to meet the exacting needs of business users and individuals alike.
The ALASKAN Concept: robust, athletic, cutting-edge styling
The ALASKAN Concept’s status-enhancing design fits perfectly with the aesthetic expectations of the pick-up segment, whilst remaining true to the Renault brand’s own styling cues.
o The dimensions of the assertive, status enhancing ALASKAN Concept ensure a forceful stance,
o The design of its robust yet athletic sculpted sides includes prominent wheel arches filled with 21-inch wheels,
o Its lines combine a sense of high-tech engineering with an impression of robustness.
o A large, prominent logo,
o An impressive bonnet highlighted by four sculptured ribs that heighten the impression of strength,
o A combination of satin-effect, brushed and polished metal finishes,
o Blue and yellow detailing on the door mirrors, brake calipers, wheel rim centres and front tow hook visually enhance the ALASKAN Concept’s poise,
o C-shaped head lights,
o Full-LED lighting signature.
The ALASKAN Concept is powered by Renault’s proven four-cylinder, twin turbo diesel engine which features in the existing Master range:
o Twin turbo technology: a small turbo for smooth acceleration at low engine speeds, plus a bigger turbo for higher revs.
o This longitudinally-mounted twin turbo powertrain is lighter than average equivalent engines,
o Outstanding acceleration performance, plus class-topping fuel economy and low CO2emissions.
