Renault Duster Oroch is a pickup truck based on the popular Duster model. The model, which has been on the Brazilian market since 2015, received a facelift, which changed the exterior design, interior equipment and introduced new products to the range of drives.
The new Renault Duster Oroch no longer defines itself as the popular SUV, since the name Duster has completely disappeared from the pickup body. Instead, the French brand used more prominent Oroch lettering on the rear of the car, but the old logo has been replaced with a regular sticker. Renault designers redesigned the radiator grille and front bumper, giving the model a more expressive character. The pickup got new fog lights, enlarged covers on the sides of the car, new wheel designs and roof rails that can bear up to 80 kg.
The interior of the new Renault Oroch looks familiar. The center console with buttons and an 8-inch high-position screen can resemble the new Dacia Sandero, as well as orange decorative elements on the dashboard and door panels. Round air vents gave way to more angular vents, and the fourth generation Renault Clio gave its truck timepieces. The driver can pair his smartphone with the vehicle via Android Auto or Apple CarPlay from the second Instens equipment level. Customers who decide to purchase Oroch have two additional options to choose from: the basic Pro version and the higher Outsider option.
The best-equipped versions received automatic air conditioning, automatic lighting, a rain sensor, a rear view camera and the Follow Me Home function. In addition, Renault offers stability control, traction control, hill-start assist and brake assist, among others.
