Renault Duster Oroch pick-up unveiled ahead of debut


This is the Renault Duster Oroch, a “Sport Utility Pick-up” that’s set to debut at the Buenos Aires International Motor Show. Quite obviously based on the Renault/Dacia Duster SUV, the French carmaker says the Oroch is the first pick-up to be derived from a C-segment platform.

Previewed by a concept last October, the production Oroch is primarily targeted at Latin America, where light pick-ups sell about 900,000 units a year. Renault’s rationale is this – if you consider B-segment pick-ups either too small in the cabin or too small in the bed, and one-tonne pick-ups too big and pricey, the Oroch should be right up your alley.

The Duster’s durability, robustness and high ground clearance carry forward into a rugged and even slightly funky body, including a roll bar that appears to double up as roof rails, pronounced rear haunches, 16-inch wheels and signatured tail lamps.

Announced are 1.6 and 2.0 litre four-cylinder petrol engines, plus a new seven-inch Media NAV Evolution touch-screen with navigation, USB, AUX and Bluetooth.

While most dream of the future, Jonathan Tan dreams of the past, although he's never been there. Fantasises much too often about cruising down Treacher Road (Jalan Sultan Ismail) in a Triumph Stag that actually works, and hopes this stint here will snap him back to present reality.
