As the name implies, the new model is designed for harsh operating conditions at sharply negative temperatures. The pickup is built on a classic platform for off-road pickups – the Nissan Navara.

Renault, like many manufacturers, decided not to invest huge budgets in the development of a new platform for an off-road pickup truck, but presented a revised version of a proven model – the Nissan Navara. The model has been on the market for a long time and has proven itself well. As part of the Geneva Motor Show was presented a stylish and aggressive version of the Renault Alaskan Ice Edition.

A special feature of the model was the autonomous cabin heater and engine preheating, sport seats, a multimedia system of a new generation, black lining on the body, massive wheel arch extensions, original 18-inch alloy wheels with off-road tires, stylish stickers with the name of the series on the hood and doors, decorative red accents and two-tone body paint.

As a power unit will be used 2.3-liter turbodiesel with a capacity of up to 160 or 190 horsepower. There will also be available and a 2.5-liter gasoline engine for 166 forces. Together with them is proposed a “mechanic” on six steps or an automatic at seven speeds. Drive exclusively full.

The cost has not yet been reported, the distribution markets are also unknown, but judging by the name, this is the United States, but Europe is not excluded.
