Default 2017 Renault Alaskan

Renault took the wraps off Renault Alaskan, a one-tonne pick-up that takes a completely fresh approach to the pickup segment, including a stunning look that incorporates an imposing front-end. Both robust and comfortable, Alaskan delivers exceptional driving comfort enhanced with a cutting edge five-link rear suspension and a tough, fully boxed frame. Alaskan is a powerful, ingeniously designed vehicle that combines outstanding offroad ability and best-in-class fuel economy with the Renault 2.3-litre dCi engine under the bonnet. In addition to meeting the needs of professional customers, it is the perfect companion for leisure use and everyday motoring. Moreover, thanks to its LCV expertise, Renault provides a wide range of services, conversions and accessories to fulfil the broad diversity of customers' needs.

Following the launch in Latin America in 2015 of Renault Duster Oroch, a segment-breaking half-tonne pick-up, Renault has global ambitions for Alaskan in the pick-up market. This market accounts for five million units worldwide annually: more than one-third of the world's LCV (Light Commercial Vehicle) sales. Building on its position as Europe's number one LCV brand for 18 years, as well as on its strong footings in South-America and Africa, Groupe Renault is shifting up a gear with Alaskan which will be manufactured in three industrial sites. Alaskan launches in the strong pick-up markets of Latin America where Renault is a long-time player. It will initially go on sale in Colombia.

Not enough differentiation from the Nissan in which it was based. The Nissan face also looks better. No doubt like the Nissan, this will be an also-ran.

It's ugly as a Nissan. It's ugly as a Mercedes. It's ugly as a Renault. Then factor in Nissan's well-known lackadaisical reliability and you have the ideal French pickup.
