Renault has published several teaser renders of the 2015 Oroch pickup truck production version. It’s programmed to debut on June 18 in Argentina at the Buenos Aires Auto Show and was previewed last fall by the Dacia Duster Oroch concept. The model is currently referred to as the “Sport Utility Pickup” and Renault says it will have all the qualities of the Duster upon which it will be based while being more practical thanks to the rear bed capable of carrying voluminous cargo.
Chances are the model will be sold as the Renault Duster Oroch and it will be available with a standard front-wheel drive system and an optional 4WD setup. Motivation will come from the Duster’s 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter normally aspirated gasoline engine coupled to a six-speed manual gearbox or a four-speed automatic transmission available at an additional cost.
It is not known at this point whether there will ever be a version sold with a Dacia badge in Europe. If that will happen, the model will be produced either at the Renault plan in Tanger, Morocco or at the Dacia factory in Pitesti, Romania. Taking into account Dacia doesn’t have a pickup truck based on the second generation Logan, most likely they will launch a utilitarian model based on the Duster SUV.
