2017 Renault Alaskan Exterior and Interior

Renault has put together a team of its best designers to make sure that the Alaskan scores high marks on the looks front. The concept model showcased in Frankfurt might have been a little too futuristic and we expect the production model to be toned down a little with conservative elements. But we can fairly assume that the one tone pick-up will have 21 inch wheels, state of the art LED lighting and a polished metal exterior.

The 2017 Renault Alaskan is aimed at the private luxury focused market and thus we expect swanky interiors. The pickup will seat five and is expected to be equipped with a heating system, luxurious seats and probably a touchscreen infotainment system. Sources say that the Alaskan will also have a rearview camera to capture the landscapes you trod on this French beauty.

Highest speed of the car will be a whopping 125 mph with a 40.4 mpg mileage. When it hits the market, the 2017 Renault Alaskan will be competing with pickups from players like Nissan.

We just hope that the manufacturers add some add on features for the premium market and both automatic and manual options. We cannot wait for the French beauty to take the global markets by storm.
