    Default Renault Alaskan coming closer

    At last.
    For those who want to tow using a diamond.
    Hopefully it will have the V6 oiler under the bonnet.

    I wonder what the target market would be for that car. Europe is sold on Volkswagens, North America, Asia and us on the Nissan, perhaps South America and France?
    ACHTUNG ALLES LOOKENPEEPERS

    Das computermachine is nicht fur gefingerpoken und mittengrabben. Ist easy schnappen der springenwerk, blowenfusen und poppencorken mit spitssparken. Ist nicht fur gewerken bei das dummkopfen. Das rubbernecken sightseeren keepen hands in das pockets-relaxen und watch das blinkenlights.

    Based on the NP300 Nissan Navara launched last year, the production Alaskan features a unique front end fascia that includes LED daytime running lights either side of a new version of the Renault grille with a prominent diamond badge in the centre.
    I'd suggest it will have the same engines as the Navara, 2.4 petrol and 2.3 diesel.

    Neither as grunty as either the Hilux or Amarok.

    So they will pushing sh!t uphill to sell against against the Toyota and VW tradie and little d..k- big car market share in Oz.

    That's a different platform I'd imagine. The monster truck version.

    The linked article suggests the Alaskan uses the same platform as NP 300 Navara.

    However, who knows ? I guess it will depend on market demand.

    However the advertising of Np 300 Navara talk of Fuel efficiency.

    Something which the Nissan Navara ST-X 550 isn't.

    And Renault are hardly renown for large displacement engines in recent times.

    That was a model in the old generation Navara. That one came from Spain, where as the rest of the range we got here came from Thailand (as it does now). They dropped this one from Australian sales well before the model was replaced. No idea why they couldn't make this one in Thailand. It was a bit of a halo model for the Navara.

    I do feel Renault will have to do something like a more powerful engine to have the market here consider the Alaskan in the same territory as the Amarok. It's pretty obvious that's it's a Navara, the interior is lifted straight from Nissan (aside from the diamond logo on the steering wheel), and the sheetmetal is the same (not sure about the bonnet, but the other panels are). They need to differentiate this one.
