T ROBUST 13L, THE NEW SPECIAL USED SERIES FROM RENAULT TRUCKS
Renault Trucks has unveiled its new special used edition, the T Robust 13L, with a focus on robustness. This Renault Trucks T, revamped by the manufacturer's design teams, has a dynamic and racy style and benefits from services tailored to its recognised longevity.
In a global context of a shortage of truck drivers, hauliers are all the more attentive to the design of their trucks as a lever for attracting and retaining drivers. The success of Renault Trucks' special second-hand series, the T 01 Racing, is proof of this. The French manufacturer is now launching a new special used series with a unique design, the T Robust 13L.
An interior and exterior design that reflects the robustness of the vehicle and Renault Trucks' expertise in 13-litre engines
The visual identity of the Renault Trucks T Robust 13L embodies the heritage of the brand, its longevity and the robustness of its trucks.
Renault Trucks' designers have chosen to use grey, black and red, the manufacturer's characteristic colours, and to work around the iconic diamond shape.
On the bodywork, vibrant lines express the strength and longevity of the 13-litre engine, as well as the experience of Renault Trucks.
Red detailing has been added under the headlamps and on the step, while red nut covers showcase the truck's parts in movement, reflecting its robustness and the strength of its engine.
The words T Robust 13L have been affixed to the grille and doors. The teams at Renault Trucks' Halle du Design (HDD) have chosen a thick, mechanical typography, reminiscent of the industrial, sporting world.
The tone is set as soon as the door opens. At eye level, on the side of the seat, there is a label bearing the name of the special series. The interior of the door, in the shape of a boomerang, has also been reworked with a carbon finish and special marking. The carbon trim on the dashboard has been redesigned and varnished, featuring new triangular shapes and lines that echo the sleek design of the bodywork.
A plaque with the words T Robust 13L has been fitted above the bunk to be visible from the outside. The seats have been covered with breathable 3D mesh covers embroidered with the name of the special series and floor mats with T Robust 13L branding have been added. As with the exterior, elegant touches of red have been added, including on the storage handles.
Robustness of the vehicle and the Renault Trucks support
This new special used edition is equipped with a DTI 13, Euro VI step D engine, known for its reliability, power and torque performance. This 13-litre engine is extremely robust and is designed to exceed one million kilometres.
The T Robust 13L is designed on the basis of a recent used truck, selected, prepared and transformed by the experts at Renault Trucks' Used Trucks Center. The most delicate operations, such as painting, are carried out in the Used Trucks Factory, the manufacturer's used trucks conversion and adaptation unit located within its manufacturing site in Bourg-en-Bresse.
Finally, for total peace of mind for hauliers, the Renault Trucks T Robust 13L enjoys the same level of support as a new vehicle. It comes with the Selection manufacturer's warranty of 3 years or one million kilometres and the Excellence Predict contract, which consists of a maintenance agreement for wear parts and a connected service to prevent unexpected downtime.
The used trucks activity is part of the global circular economy approach undertaken by Renault Trucks. The manufacturer is working to extend the life of its trucks, which are designed to last: updates are performed and vehicles are reconditioned or transformed to meet the needs of the market (Used Trucks Factory). In this way, the brand with the diamond logo undertakes to combat obsolescence.
