Renault’s New Alaskan Pickup Gets The Job Done In First Official Video

Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat – oh, wait, that’s the US Postal Service motto, but it could apply to Renault’s first ever global one-tonne workhorse, the new Alaskan, too.

Whether it is indeed as practical and versatile as the French claim, is out of our reach for now, but it didn’t take long for the pickup truck to make the transition from a professional photo studio to what it should do best: carrying large things and getting itself dirty along the way.

Focusing on its comfort, robustness, 230 mm ground clearance and 4×4 setup with rear-locking differential with a mechanical lock, the two-minute long footage is probably the best thing we’re going to get until the first reviews start coming out.

Renault will launch the Alaskan in Colombia first, with other South American markets to follow  shortly after, along with some African countries. The pickup truck will also go on sale in Europe and, depending on where you live, the automaker offers an engine lineup that includes a 2.5-liter petrol and a 2.5-liter diesel, in two outputs, connected to a six-speed manual gearbox or a seven-speed automatic.
