If your first thought was that 2017 Renault Alaskan looks like the Nissan Navara, you were not wrong. Being a Nissan’s partner, Renault has decided to change a policy of making small trucks, so the new line which will come from this factory will completely go with the existing Nissan’s models. As we heard from Renault, the new line will be called Alaskan, with the first model started from this year. There are many things which recall the popular truck made in Nissan, but many details in Alaskan are completely new and unique.
As many other trucks, 2017 Renault Alaskan has significantly large and massive grille, with the horizontal lines decorated with chromatic details. The grille ends with large lights, with large fog lights below it, rounded in chrome shaped in letter C. as many other trucks, this also has aluminum protection on the bottom and cubic bumpers. The rear end is flat with vertical lights and aluminum additions on the rear bumper. The side of the truck has plates covered with chrome and high mudguards. Flat roof and almost no curves and lines represent big and massive truck, with modernly designed details.
The inside of 2017 Renault Alaskan practically offers the useful cabin as we used to see on many trucks before. There are no much details and technology but only things which are important for the heavy load truck. That includes the screen in the middle of the dashboard with important information for the driver, two small screens behind the wheel for gas and speed and needed buttons and commands. The cabin is large and comfort, with leather seats and quality materials. For driver is offered 12V outlet, placed in the perfect place for it. As manufacturer promised, there will be two types of cabin, for left and right driving position.
Maybe the best thing about 2017 Renault Alaskan is a couple of engines it will have. The base model has 2.3-liter with 160 and 190 horsepower. Furthermore, there is offered 2.5-liter gasoline engine with 160 horsepower and 2.5-liter diesel engine with 190 horsepower. With seven-speed automatic transmission and optional four and two wheel drive systems, Alaskan is surely a truck to consider off in future. Keep in mind that all of these engines should carry almost a ton of load, as the manufacturer promised that it will be capable to.
