Renault has taken the wraps off its new Alaskan concept, which previews a new global pick-up model due in the first quarter of 2016.
The eye-catching concept features massive 21-inch alloy wheels, LED infused head and tail lights, and is said to be designed to meet the requirements of three different worlds: business and leisure use, plus everyday motoring.
Its satin-effect brushed paint finish has been combined with polished metal accent, along with blue and yellow detailing for the front tow hook, mirrors, brake calipers and wheel rim centres.
Renault says the car is built on a strong chassis for excellent road holding, high ground clearance and driving comfort. It has a payload of more than one tone with accommodation for five passengers. The ute’s loading bed incorporates three longitudinal recesses suitable for fixing equipment, while additional storage bins on either side of the load bed provide secure protection for equipment.
While nothing is official, the Alaskan concept will likely share its underpinnings with the Nissan Navara. The upcoming production model is said to be available in several body styles and won’t be limited to a double cab configuration.
