Renault Duster Oroch Design
The Renault pickup is based on the Duster platform. Its wheelbase has been extended by 155mm, making it 2,829mm. There is even an increase in its overall dimensions. The Renault Duster Oroch is 4,700mm in length, 1,822mm in width and 1,894mm in height. This pick-up is a double cab and it is much shorter than the current pick-ups like the Isuzu V-Cross, Tata Xenon and the Mahindra Scorpio Getaway. The loading capacity of the Renault Duster Oroch is 683 litres. In terms of aesthetics, there isn’t major difference in the styling from the Duster. The Renault pickup is also likely to get the similar front grille to make it look upmarket.
We aren’t certain if Renault will add bling to the grille or make it black. The dimensions till the B-pillar (part behind the front door), will have the same dimensions as the Duster. It is after that multiple changes have been made. The Renault Duster Oroch will get roof rails and even have 16-inch wheels too. The luggage tray will even get grab rails on the side for making things stay in place.
Renault Duster Oroch Interiors
On the inside, the Renault Duster Oroch will have the same cabin like the Duster. In terms of features, it will get keyless entry, touchscreen system with navigation and bluetooth, four speakers for the music system. Then there will be cruise control, steering mounted audio controls and even Eco mode on this Renault pickup. The features on offer will be the same like the Duster, except for maybe reverse camera. There shall be ABS and even dual airbags on offer as well. The Duster Oroch will have all-black interiors as this version has been designed for more of adventure use.
The Renault Duster Oroch’s front row will have the same space like the Duster. There shall be more than sufficient head room and leg room for tall passengers. The second row has good enough knee room, however the rear seat is more like a bench and is upright. This makes it a tad comfortable for tall occupants, especially on long journeys.

Renault Duster Oroch India Specifications
A 1.5-litre diesel engine shall be powering the Renault Duster Oroch India. This will be churning about 110bhp of power and will be offered with a six-speed manual and AMT options. We aren’t certain if the Renault Pickup will even get an all-wheel drive (AWD) as the company is in the phase of deciding which variant should it launch. This is the same mill that even powers the existing Renault Duster as well. The French automaker will continue selling new cars on this same platform and even if the new-gen Duster will come in, by next year.
