2017 Renault Alaskan

Nissan is helping Renault to develop new segment in their lineup. Trucks are not familiar to fans of French carmaker. However, it is about to change with this cooperation. New 2017 Renault Alaskan is ready to compete. Pickup is bringing the best of both companies. Luxury features comes from Renault, of course. On the other side, Nissan is well-known of its functionality. Pairing these two elements makes Alaskan very attractive and interesting at same time. Truck won’t go into US market at the beginning, but we expect it soon to head to North American dealerships.

There are no doubts about styling of the 2017 Renault Alaskan. However, truck is very similar to Nissan Navara. This pickup is used as mannequin for French model. Nevertheless, there are parts that make Alaskan unique and more stylish than its sibling. For example, Renault added horizontal inserts to its grille. Also, there is big badge up front. More angular bumper and headlights are also new. Then we have side steps for safer entrance. Inside the cabin, new pickup offers latest infotainment features and equipment. Safety is at first place. Heating, ventilation and air conditioning controls are simple. Comfort is at highest level, as it is expected from Renault.
