Renault has officially revealed its all-new pickup truck – the Duster Oroch. The first-ever mid-sized pickup truck by the French carmaker has made its global debut at the 2015 Buenos Aires International Motor Show in Argentina. The 2016 Renault Duster Oroch pickup is based on the Duster SUV and has been penned by the Latin American design team of Renault.
The Renault Duster Oroch pickup features a double-cab body design, and offers seating for five people. The front-end and most of the side profile of the Duster Oroch remains largely identical to that of its SUV sibling. The front fascia looks more robust, courtesy to the silver-finished skid plate and a large opening for the air dam. The front grille and the air dam get a honeycomb design and the former has twin-slats running horizontally, with a large ‘Renault’ logo in the middle. The flared wheel arches add to the overall muscular appeal of this pickup and the roof rails extend past the C-pillar and now form a roll cage-like structure. The taillights are all-new and placed between them is the obligatory tailgate, below which is a wide step that aids in the ease of loading cargo.
Under the bonnet of the 2016 Renault Duster Oroch pickup will be a 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre petrol engines. The Duster pickup will come in 2WD and 4WD avatars, along with manual and automatic transmissions. The cabin gets a 3-spoke steering wheel with integrated audio controls and a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment rig with navigation. Renault will be launching the Duster Oroch pickup in the second half of 2015, though an India-launch is unlikely.
