image118367_aRenault has announced a revised range for its Master large vans, with a fresh look, a new engine, three new models and upgraded safety features headlining the changes.

 

While the existing 2.3-litre single-turbo ‘M9T dCi150’ four-cylinder turbo-diesel will continue to power models fitted with Renault’s QuickShift six-speed automated manual transmission, those with a traditional six-speed manual now benefit from the French manufacturer’s M9T Energy dCi165 powerplant – a 2.3-litre four-cylinder twin-turbo diesel producing 120kW and 360Nm. The older unit produces a claimed 110kW and 350Nm.

 

Meanwhile, a lower output version of the new engine is available for the L1H1 front-drive Master, with the Energy dCi 135 good for a claimed 100kW and 340Nm.

 

The Master range has also been joined by three new variants: a front-drive window van suitable for conversion to a passenger bus; a front-drive platform cab ideal for bodybuilders and converters; and a new rear-drive L3H2 long-wheelbase van. The latter has a GVM of 4500kg and offers an enhanced payload of 2207kg in contrast to the 1540kg payload for the front-drive model.

 

The new rear-drive L3H2 Master also boasts a three-tonne towing capacity and has an internal volume of 12.4m³ – 0.6m³ a little less than the front-drive model thanks to larger rear wheel arches.

 

Fuel-saving idle stop-start technology is now available on all manual models while Renault has revised its list of standard and optional equipment for the family, offering – it says – “improved content and value”.

 

The new variants mean the Master family has swelled to 20 models, with payloads ranging from 1540kg to 2490kg and cubic capacities from 8.0m³ to 17.0m³. While pricing remains unchanged for some cab/chassis models, other existing variants have increased in price by either $500 or $1000.
