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

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.’’
