Renault launched the Range T series of trucks in 2013. It consists of several T and T High configurations that are ideal for a wide range of long-haul applications, including general haulage, car transport, tanker operations, and temperature-controlled transport. Read on to learn more about the various Range T models available.

Renault Range T

The standard Range T has a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of between 18 and 26 tonnes and a gross combination weight rating (GCWR) of between 40 and 60 t. Cab options include a day cab, a night and day cab with a bunk, and a high-roof sleeper cab with a bunk. It is available with either a DTI 11 engine that produces 380, 430, or 460 horsepower (283, 320, or 343 kilowatts) or a DT13 engine that produces 440, 480, or 520 hp (328, 358, or 388 kW).

Renault Range T High

The Range T High is distinct in that it has a high sleeper cab with a bunk, but also features a high roof and flat floor to maximise the interior space, make it easier to move around, and improve operator comfort. It has a GVWR of between 19 and 26 tonnes and a GCWR of between 40 and 70 tonnes. It comes standard with a DTI 13 engine ranging from 440 to 520 hp.

The T High cab is “designed for long journeys,” according to Renault, and it has the extra features to prove it. Examples include an interior/exterior storage compartment, a bottom bunk that extends to 800 millimetres (31.5 inches) and a convertible top bunk that doubles as a storage compartment, and 40-litre silent operation refrigerator. Other features include an adjustable seat with heating and ventilation built in, an 85-degree door-opening angle, air conditioning and a night heater, and three ambient lighting settings.

Shared Features

Both Renault’s T and T High trucks come standard with an OPTIDRIVER manual transmission, but there is also an OPTIDRIVER XTREM version designed for use around mines, quarries, and other similar environments, as well as an OPTIDRIVER XTREM + XTENDED gearbox that adds one or two more crawler gears. The trucks are designed to be lightweight, fuel-efficient, and aerodynamic, with an angled windscreen, multiple roof-mounted deflectors, bumper extensions, chassis fairings, and deflectors integrated into the headlamps.

Visibility is also a priority, which is why each headlamp features main beam headlights, LED daytime running lights, dipped beam headlights, fog and cornering lights, and turning indicators consisting of eight LEDs each. Other safety-oriented features include forward-facing cameras, the option to add a Roadpad system with up to four cameras, automatic lights and wipers, lane departure warning, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, hill start aid, electronic traction control, tyre pressure monitoring, and an automatic parking brake.
