Imagine if Renault could leverage that positive brand association with the strong demand for Bakkies? The latest Duster product development is a move exactly in that direction.

Renault’s Romanian subsidiary, Dacia, has now revealed a Bakkie version of its Duster, which not only looks great but has some real off-road ability too.

The new Duster bakkie’s load box is 1.65m long and has a loading capacity of 1,000-liters, with a payload rating of 500kg. In the market for traditional half-ton Bakkies, which is now virtually serviced by a single model, Nissan’s NP200. The Duster’s utility specification is absolutely on point.

All-terrain ability promises to be excellent, with the single-cab using Duster’s clutch-pack actuated all-wheel-drive system and six-speed manual gearbox.





Ground clearance also increased, by 14mm, to give the Duster Bakkie an impressive 224mm of underbody obstacle clearance, which is hugely impressive for a vehicle that has a comparatively short wheelbase.

Completing the simply outstanding compact single-cab 4×4 Bakkie specification is a 1.5-liter turbodiesel engine. With an excellent diesel consumption, at only 4.7l/100km.

Those outputs should not only give it very responsive overtaking acceleration but could make the lightweight Duster single-cab a very capable sand driving Bakkie. It can easily achieve this with some high-volume tyres running at appropriately low pressures.

The Bakkie version’s specification and neatly executed design. These Dusters were developed by a joint venture between the Renault-Nissan Alliance and Romanian engineering consultancy, Romturingia.
