Renault is aiming to enter the one-tonne pickup market globally, as it unveils its 'Alaskan' concept.
Laurens van den Acker, senior vice-president, corporate design, said: “The styling of the Alaskan Concept sticks to the rules of the pick-up segment, including impressive dimensions and a visual sense of power and robustness. At the same time, we have dialed in specific Renault cues in the form of an attractive, status-enhancing front-end design.”
The Alaskan Concept is powered by Renault’s four-cylinder, twin turbo diesel engine which features in the existing Master range.
Renault said the production version’s design will be similar in spirit to that of the Alaskan Concept and will feature the same dimensions, and will be revealed in the first half of 2016.
