About Renault Master

The original Renault Master was launched in September 1980. Originally launched with the 2.5 L (2445 cc) Fiat-Sofim diesel engine, and from 1984 also with the 2.1 L (2068 cc) power unit. In rare cases the Master was sold with a 2.0 L or 2.2 L Renault petrol engine.

In 1990, a marginally larger (2499 cc) version of the Sofim diesel replaced the earlier version.

They competed with a number of other manufacturer’s products, but also with the smallest models of Renault’s own Dodge 50 Series, which was latterly being built as the Renault 50 Series, after Renault’s acquisition of the Dodge production facilities in the United Kingdom (at the time of Peugeot’s takeover of Chrysler Europe).
