Renault has unveiled its new Duster Oroch pickup this week, based on the small Dacia Duster SUV already offered in overseas markets.

The Oroch is built on a ‘C segment’ or small-car platform, utilising a version of the Renault-Nissan Alliance’s older ‘Bo’ architecture that underpins models like the Juke SUV and the NV200 van.

Renault says that the Oroch’s unique design positions it “between two segments”: the even smaller ‘B segment’ pickups that offer either less room in the cabin or a shorter cargo space, and larger pickups like the HiLux and Ranger.

The Oroch was therefore developed to meet what it claims is a demand for another specific type of offering, offering both a spacious cabin and a sizeable load-hauling space at the rear.

Just what sort of load-hauling the Oroch is capable of, however, Renault has yet to say.

The company has previously described the Oroch as a half-tonne ute, but today’s style-focused unveiling offers little in the way of technical details.

A pair of 1.6 and 2.0 litre engines petrol engines are confirmed, although neither has been detailed.

The Oroch won’t be coming to Australia, but it also won’t be Renault’s only pickup.

Earlier this year, the company confirmed it will soon introduce a new Navara-based model, to be built in Spain.

Like the Mercedes-Benz pickup that will also utilise the Navara’s technologies, the Renault pickup is a top priority for an Australian launch.

Full details on that model are still to come, but Renault has confirmed it will begin production sometime in 2016.
