This is a first in 20 years of covering truck news stories. An upgrade to a range of trucks will be revealed on Euro Truck Simulator 2 before being published elsewhere.

Renault Trucks spend a fortune in 2013 on the original reveal of their Euro 6 range including the totally new Range T cab. The launch was only spoilt a little by a French air traffic controllers strike which made it very difficult for journalists to attend, (don’t we love long coach rides!)

So it is with less public fanfare that the next generation of the Renault Truck Range will appear in 2021.  The updates will cover the  Renault Trucks long-haul (T) and construction (C and K) ranges, with improvements in comfort, safety and productivity.

This is also the first time that the French manufacturer will have its trucks in the Euro Truck Simulator 2 video game and offer a virtual driving experience.

SAs a result, on 6 April 2021, the manufacturer will reveal the 2021 evolution of the Renault Trucks T in Euro Truck Simulator 2, the truck driving simulation video game. The exterior design, driving position and cab layout will all be upgraded and everything can be tested virtually in the game.

Largest Upgrade to Range since 2013

Renault Trucks tell us they have made major improvements in terms of both driving comfort and on-board comfort. The high level of safety for drivers and road users has also been central to the development of the Renault Trucks T, C and K ranges.

For customers, vehicle productivity has also been improved, with ever lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions and increased vehicle availability, due notably to the related Predict predictive maintenance contracts.

On 6 April 2021, you can take a seat in the cab of the Renault Trucks T and T High 2021, test the new ergonomics of the driver’s cab and experience the interior of the truck, in urban areas, on regional roads or on motorways. To do this, all you have to do is log on to the Euro Truck Simulator 2 PC game, enjoyed by more than 9 million players worldwide, or share the driving experiences of other players using the hashtag #renaulttrucksevolution on social networks.

In addition, from 29 March 2021, the Euro Truck Simulator 2 gaming community will see the Renault Trucks T 2021 hidden under a red veil in front of the Renault Trucks dealerships in the game. While waiting for the veil to be lifted, Renault Trucks will be offering competitions on its social networks, with many prizes to be won via the hashtag #renaulttrucksevolutioniscoming.
