Renault takes the wraps off the ALASKAN Concept pick-up, a one-tonne show truck

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. 

A head-turner…

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. 

  • Its eye-catching front-end styling incorporates Renault design cues which bring a modern, aesthetic touch to the world of pick-ups:

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.​​​​
