Renault Trucks technical specs and data

The history of Renault trucks dates back to 1894, when Marius Berliet designed and constructed single cylinder engine and his first petrol car. In 1906, he constructed his first truck. Renault has been collecting the experience for over 100 years, while constantly innovating its technologies. Finally, in 2013, Renault introduced and launched four new truck ranges covering wide scale of applications. Renault Trucks T are suitable for national and international long-haul transport, Renault Trucks K for heavy-construction usage, Renault Trucks C for construction sites and Renault Trucks D for distribution. The model names correspond with their engine ratings (e.g. the T 380 truck is rated at 380 hp).
