Renault D Wide gets new engine
Renault Trucks announced that the D Wide truck will now be offered with an 11-litre engine. According to the company, the new engine will complement the current 8-litre engine.
It is said that the DT11 Euro 6 engine is capable of producing between 250hp and 420hp.
This new offering allows Renault Trucks to cover all the needs of its customers seeking vehicles with a high power rating, while retaining a low entry cab for greater comfort. The truck also features two anti-slip stairway type steps only 340 mm from the ground.
Other notable features in the D Wide includes the Optidriver automated manual gearbox which comes as standard. It can also be fitted with the Fuel Eco pack, a gearshift optimised to reduce fuel consumption, an automatic engine cutout, the Ecocruise control, the disengageable air compressor and the inhibited Power mode. For even greater driving comfort and safety, a Voith retarder is available as an additional option.
This vehicle is particularly suitable for environmentally related activities such as waste tips, which demand a high power rating, but also require the crew to get into and out of the cab frequently. Altogether, there are now 16 D WIDE and C 2.3 m models which are now equipped with the DTI 11 engine.
