• New K Xtrem offers the most robust chassis on the market
• New model is now available across the Middle East
• Designed for the most extreme conditions
(Middle East, 24th April, 2017) Renault Trucks has introduced the new K Xtrem to the Middle East market. The robust model, developed to take on the most challenging environments found in the Middle East, was launched during Renault Trucks XTREM DAYS event in Marrakech, Morocco, for industry leaders from Greater Middle East, Sub-Sahara Africa, Algeria, Morocco and Turkey.
Designed for the most heavy-duty uses on the most extreme terrains such as quarries and mines, the K Xtrem comes with a reinforced chassis and an automated, reinforced Optidriver Xtrem gearbox. The new model offers a total capacity of 32 to 36 tons, and features a cast iron engine flywheel housing and C-shaped side member reinforcement. Added to this, customers can specify 24” wheels, bolstering the model's ability to tackle the toughest terrain.
The Xtrem Days event was dedicated to the Renault Trucks C and K ranges, bringing together over 450 clients from over 18 countries. Participants were given the opportunity to test drive the vehicles and attend workshops to discover more about the ranges.
Commenting on the arrival of the K Xtrem, Gregoire Blaise, Renault Truck Vice President for Greater Middle East, said: “When developing the C and K ranges, we deployed significant resources to ensure these vehicles deliver maximum reliability and robustness. Each range underwent rigorous quality trials and were also exhaustively field tested under actual operating conditions. The K Xtrem version takes this one step further by offering our customers the most robust chassis in the market, specifically designed to meet extreme conditions such as those in the Middle East market.''
The launch of the K Xtrem follows shortly after the introduction of the robust C and K range from Renault Trucks in 2016. Targeting customers who work not only in the construction and long haul industries, but in heavy construction as well, these new model ranges were designed and developed by working closely with international customers, who were involved in the project from the design stage right through to testing in actual operating conditions.
The K range has set new standards in terms of robustness. The range has an impressive design with a full steel bumper, exceptional obstacle clearance and the best approach angle on the market. The K Range's variety of chassis reinforcements such as the K Xtrem allow it to adapt to even the toughest conditions. The Renault Trucks C Range is perfectly designed for construction, construction site supply and long haul conditions. It has a high payload, low fuel consumption and comfort of a road vehicle. Its excellent pulling power, manoeuvrability and obstacle clearance capacity make it an excellent choice not only for professionals delivering materials in urban settings, but for those working in specialised fields such as earthmoving, concrete transport and fertiliser transport.
