The Renault Kerax range is available with three new Euro 5 engines offering an excellent compromise between torque at low engine speeds and economical fuel consumption. Its new drive axles and double reduction tandems make it ideally suited to both on-road and off-road applications.
The chassis’ load capacity is increased by interior reinforcement and a new higher quality of steel. The new manual or automated gearboxes enhance driving comfort and optimise fuel consumption. All of these elements add up to give the strength, pulling power and robustness needed by a vehicle designed to work under the most challenging conditions. New gearboxes for an optimal combination of payload, lower fuel consumption and smooth driving. Four 16 speed manual gearboxes and two automated 12 speed gearboxes. 3 systems for smoother gearshifts.
• Cable control: increases comfort (by filtering vibrations), smoothness and safety, eliminates gears jumping due to movement of the cab in relation to the chassis. • Servo shift: an assistance system allowing the effort needed for shifting gears to be reduced by 75%. • Super H: consists of superimposing gears 5 to 8 on top of gears 1 to 4. To switch from one range of gears to another, the driver simply has to activate the press button on the gearshift lever handle. The electrovalve protects the system from driver errors when shifting range.
The gearbox syncro protection prevents inadvertent shifting from a high to a low range of gears. Gear selection is accurate, swift (with short selection travel) and secured (electrovalve). The Optidriver+ automated gearboxes are particularly suitable for worksite supply and on-site applications. A wide choice of PTOs are available, these are electronically. controlled for greater reliability and safety:. - power takeoff on the gearbox. - engine rear power takeoff.

Renault Trucks displays innovation with its electronically controlled air management system, Air Product Management. This system offers greater safety, as well as savings in weight, fuel consumption and maintenance:. • Air production is now controlled electronically rather than mechanically for greater safety and quality. • Production and treatment are optimised. • Compressed air is produced outside acceleration phases.
