Renault reveals ‘new’ used truck

In an innovative move, Renault Trucks is using approved used vehicles to factory-convert for specialist applications.

The ‘new’ Range T X-Road 460 is actually a used vehicle, reconditioned in the specialised ‘Used Trucks Factory’ that forms an integral part of the Renault Trucks manufacturing site in Bourg-en-Bresse, France.

It is equipped with raised suspension, underbody skidplates and various protective components to allow it to work in arduous and inhospitable conditions.

The Range T X-Road belongs to a new range of customised used vehicles. These trucks are rigorously selected, subject to 200-point inspections and are prepared in their own section of the Bourg-en-Bresse manufacturing site.

The X-Road is fitted with an 11-litre 460 bhp Euro-6 engine and is available in both 4×2 and 6×2 configurations. It features reinforced bodywork, including steel bumper bars, ultra-strong step wells and protective headlight grills. 315/80 mixed profile tyres are also fitted to increase the standard ground clearance by up to 60 mm. The automated ‘Optidriver’ gearbox gets an off-road mode and manual accelerator.

The Range T X-Road 460 comes with a 1-year, 160,000km warranty. The warranty covers all incidents related to the engine, gearbox and axles and is valid throughout Europe, along with 24/7 roadside assistance.

The Range T X-Road is only available in Renault Trucks sales outlets in UK, France, Spain, Poland, Hungary, Germany and Belgium.
