    Default Renault Oroch bakkie confirmed for South Africa

    Renault Oroch bakkie confirmed for South Africa

    https://topauto.co.za/news/14024/ren...-south-africa/

    As the Renault Duster Oroch is not due this year, there is little information on what it will offer when it does arrive.


    However, the Oroch is already available in other African countries giving us an idea of what to expect.


    Currently, in Nigeria, the Oroch is available with a 1.6-litre or 2.0-litre petrol engine.


    Output is rated at 82kW and 148Nm, and 107kW and 198Nm, respectively with power sent to the front or all four wheels, depending on the trim.

    That will be an awesome seller. The duster is a great little crossover, very capable actually, and I think the market is drooling in Sa for another decent half tonner. Now imagine a 4x4 half tonner.

    womder what pricing will be like, as the NP200 is already well over R200k these days....

    Not sure if there is a market for a small 4x4 single cab bakkie?

    But the 4x4 derivative will have no competition in SA, which plugs a nice hole in the market for the young single or couple adventurers looking at getting off he beaten track on a budget.

    If a single cab small 4x4 bakkie was on the market when I bought my Jimny - I would have taken the bakkie.

    I like it - in fact we should all welcome its arrival: Now more people can enter the 4x4 world!

    Oh for sure.

    I would have bought one if something like this was available years ago.

    Also like it.

    Why would they name a bakkie after an orange squash drink?

    I thought it was a bad guy in lord of the rings...
    In all seriousness though, I have quite often wished that my litte Chev Utility was 4wd, if prices are reasonable I don't see why it won't do well.

    Oroch is actually an ancient wild cow, pretty tough looking thing. Apt name I think.

    that is based on what is available in Nigeria, where most vehicles are petrol.
