As expected, level design is a model that is not surprising to be a Navara with the identity of Renault in the front, resembling much to Renault Kadjar.

The Renault Alaskan will have versions of traction easily to the rear axle and all-wheel drive. Models 4×4 have a system of all-wheel drive with switchable low-range and supplemented with a differential limited-slip rear.
