RENAULT TRUCKS RANGE T P-ROAD : TURNING A STANDARD TRACTOR INTO A MULTI-PURPOSE RIGID

Renault Trucks is expanding its range of used vehicles and bringing out a new model from the ‘Used Trucks Factory’ incorporated into the Bourg-en-Bresse manufacturing site in France. The Range T P-Road is the result of converting Renault Trucks T Tractors into Rigids to meet customer demand.

Renault Trucks is bringing out a customised used rigid - the Range T P-Road - to meet the specific requirements of customers looking for high-quality, certified, used rigids. This new model (a Renault Trucks Range T X-Road worksite supply truck) is the latest addition to the manufacturer's existing ‘Used Trucks Factory’ range of customised used vehicles.

In the Used Trucks Factory workshop at the Bourg-en-Bresse manufacturing site, rigorously-selected, recent, used tractors are first checked against a more than 200-point checklist before being converted in accordance with the truck builder's manufacturing standards.

Prior to any conversion, Renault Trucks design office and quality engineers carry out a specific study of each conversion project. The industrial manufacturing process and quality control meet the same demanding standards as those applied when manufacturing a new vehicle.

To carry out the conversion, the cab, drive train and suspension are first removed so that the existing rails can be replaced by new rails with a customized wheelbase. This guarantees the vehicle's robustness and suitability for any type of body and purpose.

The Range T P-Road undergoes the same strict quality control and systematic road test as new vehicles before delivery to Renault Trucks dealerships.

The Range T P-Road is currently available in the 4x2 frame version, with a choice of three different wheelbase lengths (5600, 6000 and 6500 mm) as required. Vehicles can also be customised for use by driving schools or removal companies, for example.

The Range T P-Road is guaranteed for one year or 120,000 km (75,000 mls) and the manufacturer's guarantee (Selection Label) covers all driveline components (engine, gearbox and bridges) and applies to all Renault Trucks sales and service outlets throughout Europe.
