The South American division of Renault has presented an upgraded pickup truck Oroch, based on the first-generation Duster crossover. This model has been produced in Brazil since 2015.
All restyling was reduced to a new grille, modified front bumper, darkened taillights, as well as new 16-inch wheels. In addition, the pickup got new rails and a standard plastic coating on the cargo platform.
The interior of the model has undergone more significant changes. Inside there are a number of elements from the second-generation Duster, including air ducts and the control unit of the climate system. In addition, the pickup has acquired a dashboard in the style of a crossover Captur, as well as a new separate display tablet of the infotainment system.
As before, the basic version of the Renault Oroch is equipped with a 1.6-liter atmospheric engine capacity of 120 horsepower. The engine works along with a six-speed manual transmission, which came to replace the five-band transmission.
At the same time, the old 2.0-liter engine was removed, and replaced by a 1.3-liter 170-horsepower turbo-four, acting together with a Variator. This pickup can accelerate to a “hundred” in 9.8 seconds and its top speed is 189 km/h.
In Brazil, the new Renault Oroch is already available for ordering. Prices for cars range from 105 to 137 thousand reais (about $23 to $29 thousand).
