RENAULT TRUCKS T X-64, THE NEW EXPORT MODEL FROM THE USED TRUCKS FACTORY
Renault Trucks is continuing to expand its range of used trucks with the launch of a new model converted at the Used Trucks Factory in Bourg-en-Bresse: the Renault Trucks T X-64 Euro III, designed for export to the African and Middle Eastern markets.
Renault Trucks is launching sales of a new custom-built model, named the Renault Trucks T X-64, from its Used Trucks Factory, a specialised conversion workshop integrated into the Bourg-en-Bresse manufacturing site*. This vehicle is converted using very strict industrial processes and is specifically intended for customers operating in Africa and the Middle East.
A truck "re-made in France"
With a change of stringers, suspensions, axles and conversion of the power train, the Renault Trucks T X-64 comprises over 50% of new original parts.
It is fitted with a new ultra-robust 6x4 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 robotized 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 level of pollution control 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 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 X64 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.
* Used Trucks Factory conversions are conducted using recent 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.
