Renault Sherpa - the French version of Hummer
Renault reveals its Sherpa in two new versions. The Sherpa concept, claimed as the French equivalent of the American Hummer, was developed as a light 4x4 military truck dedicated to projection and intervention units. The new versions aim to achieve popularity also through the civilian market where the Hummer is pretty famous.
The Sherpa 2 provides in one version 4 seats for passengers, offering a payload of 2 to 3 tons and the Sherpa 3 is a two-seater pick-up featuring 10’ flat bed supporting a total payload of 4.1 tons. Both models get a Euro 4 turbocharged 4-cylinder diesel engine capable of 215 HP at 2,300rmp. The truck can reach a top speed of 120 km/h on a flat road surface while its autonomy at a cruising speed of 70 km/h is 900km.
