New Interior Look

A redesigned dashboard and steering wheel dominate the changes to the interior, whilst more subtle changes to the instrument cluster can be spotted only by the keenest Range D fan. The driver now has somewhere to put their tablet, room for two phones and some extra usb ports for charging it all.

The sounds are new with revised radio kit – now able to play DAB radio channels.

Safety Improvements

The Renault Trucks D and D Wide are fitted with adaptive cruise control (ACC) as standard. ACC maintains a safe distance from the vehicle in front by automatically adjusting acceleration and braking for greater safety, smoother driving and reduced driver fatigue.

For improved visibility, the Renault Trucks D and D Wide are available with LED rear lights.

For a high level of safety, Renault Trucks offers its Protect Pack as an option, which includes LED rear lights, a hill start aid, a vision door and a reverse alarm to improve protection for road users. Connected trucks for increased productivity Renault Trucks diesel vehicles are fitted with Euro 6 Step D engines, which are both fuel efficient and environmentally friendly.

Stay Connected

To further increase vehicle efficiency and productivity, Renault Trucks D-series models are connected as standard (TGW 4G). They are therefore compatible with Optifleet, Renault Trucks’ fleet management solution. With Optifleet, vehicle activity is managed in real time, which means that the main items of expenditure can be fully controlled. Fleet managers can track the fuel consumption of their vehicles with Optifleet Check and geolocate them in real time with Optifleet Map.

For maximum productivity, Renault Trucks offers its Fuel Eco Pack as an option, which includes an adjustable roof deflector, inhibited power mode, automatic engine stop after three minutes, the Optiroll “free wheel” function (on the D Wide), optimised Fuel Eco gearbox software (on the D Wide) and a clutchable air compressor (on DTI 11 engines only).

The Renault Trucks D and D Wide E engines are compatible with XTL synthetic fuel and biodiesel. The 2020 Range D line up will also see the introduction of 100% electric D and D Wide Z.E. models.
