Despite their increasing rarity, there is usually a choice of Renault Magnums for sale at Truckpages. You may love the look of these trucks, but you won’t find too many for sale now. Renault stopped manufacturing the Magnum in 2013 when the new Euro 6 range was launched. It has been replaced by the flat floor version of the Range T.
Launched in 1990, the futuristic looking truck was available with an underpowered 374hp six cylinder or a Mack V8 (Renault Trucks owned Mack). The truck was facelifted in 2001 and 2008 for Euro 5, but the basic look and appeal remained.
If you are looking for Renault Truck’s replacement for the Magnum, then you might want to consider the equally striking looking ‘Range T’. Renault started bringing right hand drive versions of the flat floor Range T ‘High’ into the UK from 2020 so you will only find a left hand drive version older than this. The engine tunnel in the older models are only 20 cm high – so worth checking out.
No, the iconic flat-floored cab is not due for a comeback, Renault Trucks have refurbished an old one to celebrate the ‘Concorde’ moment of launching such a futuristic truck – maybe ahead of its time. The Magnum every driver wanted was the top-powered 500hp Mack-powered AE500 that saw the light of day for the first time in 1990. However, since these are very hard to come by, Renault Trucks has decided to make their 1997 AE 380.19 4x2 Magnum look like the 1990 AE500 launch show truck.
