The Renault Duster includes many non-commercial improvements including increased crossing capacity:

- Type TL8 limited-slip differiential on front wheels
- Upgraded suspension system
- 5x All Terrain - Sand tires
- Reinforced undercarriage under the engine block and the rear deck
- Schnorkel-type engine air intake allowing deep water crossing
- Removable raised exhaust

This vehicle's high speed and low fuel consumption is especially adapted to liaison and deep scouting missions. This vehicle has been especially upgraded to withstand all terrain and weather conditions and to operate efficiently off-road, in sand or on rocky terrain.

Vehicle modifications and equipments have been added in order to reach expected field requirements such as front and rear headlight protections, bull-bar, NATO green metallic paint, towing - trailer bar, tropicalized vehicle with air conditioning, 2x roof-mounted floodlights and a Garmin Pro (or similar) GPS.

The traction is improved with a commercial differential replaced with a limited-slip differential. The optional undercarriage protections allow a protection plate under the engine block and gearbox, and a protection plate under the rear deck. Options also include special tires set with a set of 5 "All terrain" tires.
