Renault Trucks converts tractors into rigids

Renault Trucks is to offer second-hand versions of its range-topping Range T tractor unit as custom-made rigid box trucks, converted in-house.

The Range T P-Road is the latest addition to Renault’s ‘Used Trucks Factory’ range, which consists of trucks that are converted before resale at its Bourg-en-Bresse manufacturing site, France.

At the factory workshop, used tractors are evaluated against a 200-point checklist before being converted in accordance with the truck builder’s manufacturing standards.

The cab, drive train and suspension are removed and the existing chassis rails replaced by longer rails, with a customisable wheelbase depending on customer requirements.

The Range T P-Road is available with a 4×2 rigid chassis and a choice of three wheelbase lengths (5,600, 6,000 and 6,500mm). Each P-Road is guaranteed for one year or 120,000km (78,000miles). The guarantee covers all driveline components repaired by all Renault Trucks sales and service outlets across Europe.
