Dacia Duster Oroch concept unveiled

Pick-up trucks are hugely popular in Brazil, and Renault wants in on the market.

It has already announced two new models, which may or may not include a production version of this Renault-badged Dacia Duster concept.

Called the Oroch, the roof has been cut off behind the rear seats and the rear bodywork extended beyond the back wheels, turning the Duster into a double-cab truck.

Renault said: “The show car’s body colour is an exclusive combination of satin-finish white and touches of orange that highlight its sporty personality and the world of kitesurfing, which inspired the vehicle’s design.” Okay, then.

Roof rails shield a panoramic sunroof, while the load bed has been designed specifically to stow several kitesurf boards. Rear-mounted cameras record the action, which is displayed on the dashboard multimedia screen.

Ground clearance has been raised and the Duster Oroch rides on 18-inch wheels wrapped in chunky 255/60 tyres.

Strip away the tinsel and add a set of 15-inch steel wheels, the Duster Oroch will almost certainly be one of the trucks Renault launches in Brazil.

It’s unlikely we will see it in the UK, but we would suggest Dacia may well find a market for it here.

It will be unveiled at the Sao Paulo Motor Show later this week.
