Renault Trucks logistics and light construction workhorse T X-64 now available in the region

French firm confident that the new T X-64 will continue X-Road and X-Port success while reinforcing "the brand’s growing reputation across the region"

Renault Trucks is expanding its “re-made in France” truck range in the Middle East and Africa which the launch of the new custom-built model, the Renault Trucks T X-64

The new model is set to appeal to customers looking for cost-efficient trucks that feature European quality, and deliver an optimised total cost of ownership and standard warranty, the firm said in a statement.

It added: “The Renault Trucks T X-64, is produced in a specialised conversion workshop at the Bourg-en-Bresse manufacturing site in France”. The vehicle is converted using rigorous industrial processes and is specifically intended for customers operating in Africa and the Middle East. Its high ground clearance makes it ideal for light construction, logistic or petroleum transportation, while its T cab maximises the driver’s comfort”

The launch follows the recent successful introductions of other custom-built models the X-Road and the X-Port to the region.

Alex Vosselman, Used Trucks Director of Renault Trucks Middle East, added: “These models enjoyed exceptionally high demand in GCC markets. Our Used Trucks are now well established, so we are very confident that the new T X-64 will follow in these footsteps and reinforce the brand’s growing reputation across the region.

“We are also simultaneously launching a 24 months warranty combined with a 24 months service contract on the X-Port, X-Road and X-64 to emphasise on the Total Cost of Ownership and quality of our Used Renault trucks.”

Driver Notes: An overview of the remade T X-64

Used Trucks Factory conversions are conducted using recently used trucks that have been rigorously selected and subjected to over 200-point inspections. Each conversion has been specifically studied by Renault Trucks’ design and quality engineers. The industrial manufacturing and quality control processes meet a level of requirements comparable to those applied in the manufacture of new vehicles.

Renault Trucks’ Export models have been in high demand in the GCC – the T X-64 has explicitly been prepared for the region’s markets, with its reinforced chassis and other specifications. The option of hub reduction allows drivers to operate either on-road on rough conditions, making the T X-64 ideal for tackling the region’s most challenging terrain.

With a change of stringers, suspensions, axles and conversion of the power train, the Renault Trucks T X-64 includes over 50% of new original parts.

It is fitted with a new ultra-robust reinforced 6×4 300 mm chassis with a three-axle profile, allowing a load of 8 tons on the front axle and 26 tons on the rear. For optimum driving comfort and perfect control of the vehicle in any situation, the Renault Trucks T X-64 is fitted with an Optidriver robotised gearbox with off-road mode and manual acceleration.

Based on a Renault Trucks T Euro VI converted into Euro III, the Renault Trucks T X-64 guarantees the highest pollution control level as applied in Africa and the Middle East. The Used Trucks Factory operators begin the conversion by dismantling and recycling the Euro VI components (silencers and AdBlue components) before installing the Euro III parts. As with new engines, this conversion is certified by an external body and guarantees the original power and torque.

The air and diesel filters are also reinforced, enabling the vehicle to adapt to its new environment (topography and the characteristics of locally-available fuel). Finally, ground clearance is increased to ensure the protection of the underbody on rough terrain.

The manufacturer’s software and documentation are updated to ensure the vehicle, with its new specifications, is recognised and maintained throughout the network.

Finally, the Renault Trucks T X-64 comes with a manufacturer’s warranty of 18 months or 180,000 km, which covers all components of the powertrain and is valid throughout all Renault Trucks sales and service outlets.
