Renault reveals revised Master
08 May 2014
While the attention was mainly on their all-new Trafic and Vivaro medium vans, Renault and Vauxhall used last week's Commercial Vehicle Show at the NEC in Birmingham to reveal the revised Master large van.
The facelifted Master (pictured) and Movano get new 2.3-litre engines of 110-165hp, up from 100-150hp, with the more powerful 135hp and 165hp actually being more efficient than their 110hp and 125hp siblings thanks to the use of twin-turbo technology.
Standard kit includes a new ESC system with load adaptive control, while Renault has confirmed new L4H2 and L4H3 versions with single rear wheels, aimed at long-distance use and courier companies.
The single wheel, rather than twin-wheel arrangement at the rear, allows euro pallets to be slid between the wheel arch intrusions.
First deliveries of the new large vans will take place in late summer.
