Renault Truck’s outgoing light to medium weight truck covers the range from 7.5 tonnes GVW up to 18 tonnes, where it crosses over with the Renault Premium. At just 210cm, the Renault Midlum boasts one of the most compact cabs at this weight range – certainly from a European manufacturer. This is the cab that Renault shares with the DAF LF45 - in fact Renault make it for DAF.
Although the Midlum has been around since 2000, the relatively recently introduced range of Euro 5 engines range has increased power at the lower end from 160hp to190hp, whilst the top power remained at 220 hp for the 5-litre, 4-cylinder DXi5. The 7-litre 6 cylinder Renault DXi7 engine range now starts at 270hp (up from 240hp previously) rising to 300 hp (previously 280hp).

All engines reach Euro 5 thanks to SCR technology using Adblue injection. For a lightweight distribution truck, there is an automated ‘Optitronic’ gearbox as an option, but it is not offered as a standard item.
Truck operators can choose from the Day cab or the Global cab, which is 40cm deeper than the day cab. The Renault Midlum Global cab can be found in five different layouts – Standard; Global Utility (municipal applications); Global Office, (some office features); Global Relax (a rest cab) and Global Night – a fixed sleeper cab.
One innovative development from Renault Trucks is the nifty dashboard-mounted gear selector – Midlum drivers can change gears on the choice of manual or automated gearbox easily – again useful for urban operation.
Renault has just waved goodbye to the Midlum and replaced it with the ‘D’ Series, which apparently stands for distribution. The Midlum was available in something like 75 different models, from tippers and fire engines to car transporters, but its core market was undoubtedly that of regional and local distribution. The Midlum arrived in 2000 and was available in gross vehicle weights from 7.5 tonnes to 18 tonnes, where it handed over to the Renault Premium. The Midlum had an extremely compact cab for the sector, at only 210cm, which made it even more manoeuvrable on tight urban delivery runs. Being a hugely versatile truck, however, the Midlum was also available with a four-door crew cab.
More recent models enjoyed a power upgrade as the Midlum moved to Euro 5 engines, using the Adblue additive. The entry-level engine saw an increase in horsepower to 190hp from the previous 160hp models. Those Midlums with the larger six-cylinder DXi7 seven-litre power plant were bumped up on power to either 270hp or 300hp, up from 240hp and 280hp respectively. The light distribution Midlum trucks came with the option of an Optitronic automatic gearbox, but a manual box was fitted as standard. A dash-mounted switch allowed drivers of the automatic to switch into manual mode at the touch of a button — a useful feature on demanding urban operations.
Aside from the compact standard day cab and crew cab, the Renault Midlum also offered a choice of Global cabs. These were 40cm deeper than the standard day cab and also came in no fewer than five different formats. There was the Global Standard, Global Utility, Global Office, Global Relax and Global Night. The Utility was aimed at municipal work, while the Office had some useful office features and the Relax was a rest cab. The Night was a standard sleeper cab. The Renault Midlum also came with a high-roof cab with extra headroom, which is a useful option in a cab that has a high engine tunnel intruding into the cab.
Renault built its 100,000th Midlum in 2010, so the truck was a popular success for the French company. One key to that success was undoubtedly its flexibility. It was available in an astonishing array of cabs, engines and axle and body layouts, making it adept in all sorts of markets. Renault also kept it simple, however, and the pricing was keen. These are now factors that make the Renault Midlum a popular second-hand choice.
Over the last few years, the decreasing number of car-licensed drivers able to drive a 7.5-tonne truck has brought the future of these trucks into question. Many operators have taken... Read More
