Romanian coachbuilder Romturingia converts 2nd-gen Dacia Duster SUV into a pickup

Duster is currently the best-selling model of Dacia, the Romanian carmaker that is part of the Renault Group. It was built as an SUV, and its smart, no-frill yet practical character made it an appealing vehicle for many. Now, its second-generation model has gained a pickup form.

This pickup version of the Dacia won't be build by the Romanian carmaker. It will be instead be built by a Romania coachbuilder called as SC Romturingia SRL, which is based in Campulung Muscel. Romturingia SRL produces bodywork for vehicles and armored vehicles, special designs for fuel transport, and vehicles with special destinations. It also builds trailers and installs hard-tops for vehicles build by Dacia, Renault, Nissan, Mitsubishi, Toyota, Ford and Mazda.

Actually, Romturingia and Dacia already had a collaboration to build a pickup version of the Duster. That was way back in 2014, and only 500 examples of the Duster SUV-turned-pickup were built and delivered. However, that collaboration involved the first generation of the Duster, all of these conversions sold to a major fleet customer in Romania. The Duster was first launched in 2009 as the first generation model, with the second generation revealed at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show.
