Launched at Euro 6 in 2014, the Renault Range T was a totally brand new cab design. Aerodynamic and futuristic looking that, like the Magnum that went before, was a little head of its time. The brand is not well loved in the UK, but the truck is well built (Renault Trucks is part of the Volvo Group) and the Range T is a solid workhorse that is usually well priced. There is always a decent selection of Range T trucks for sale at Truckpages. These trucks are usually tractor units, (the rigid trucks tend to use the Range C ‘construction’ models) and the power outputs are 460hp for the earlier T460 and 480hp for the later T480. Unlike most manufacturers, Renault decided not to use conventional naming for their trucks – perhaps you might expect ‘T Range’ rather than ‘Range T’ – in fact many people do switch it around.
Dean Hall, truck salesman at Renault Truck Commercials can count this as a good day. One day earlier, a local haulier with 120 trucks, Knowles Transport, had no Renault trucks on their fleet. Today he has sold the first two T440 tractor units into the fleet and, no doubt, has sights set on the rest. The two T440 6x2s decked in Knowles’ striking orange livery have been added to the company’s line-up moving food, drink and ambient to retailers across the UK and Ireland. The addition of the first two Renault Trucks coincides with Knowles Transport’s 90-year Anniversary with the…>
Renault Trucks was early to market with their electric distribution truck range up to 26 tonnes. Since 2020, the manufacturer has been marketing a range of all-electric trucks from 3.1 to 26 tonnes, manufactured in France. Now other manufacturers are starting to catch up, the company has revealed their plans for an electric 44 tonne tractor unit and their ‘Range C’ construction variants. The start of sales for these two new models will be in 2023. They will be branded the Renault Trucks T E-Tech for regional transport and the Renault Trucks C E-Tech for the construction industry. From the…>
After the April upgrade to the interior and cab of the T, T High, C and K ranges, Renault has turned its attention to improving the engines. The manufacturer is equipping these trucks with new DE11 and DE13 Step E engines. Coupled with the integration of advanced technologies, such as Turbo Compound, and dedicated services, the manufacturer claims a potential reduction in consumption of up to 10%.

At Truckpages we publish the launch blurb for new trucks, as, in a few years time, they will be used trucks and it is good to be able to check the specification changes that took place for a particular facelift. This type of information is hard to come by elsewhere, as the truck manufacturers tend to focus on their current new offering. So here’s what Renault Trucks have to say in the their first major upgrade shince the 2013 range relaunch: The Blurb Renault Trucks is upgrading its T, T High, C and K ranges in 2021, bringing major improvements…>
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…>
