The Dacia factory in Pitesti has produced 500,000 Duster units and the anniversary model is intended for export, as 95% of the Duster production.
The Dacia Duster, the SUV manufactured in Pitesti, has produced the 500,000 unit. The anniversary unit left the Pitesti factory on December 3, 2013, has a olive gray color and is powered by a 1.5 dCi engine with 110 HP, all-wheel drive and Laureate trim level. Like the majority of the Dacia models produced the last years, the anniversary unit will be exported to France, the largest export market for the Duster and one of the most important markets for the Romanian car manufacturer.
The Duster represents approximately 40% of total daily production of the Dacia vehicles factory and 95% of this production was exported. The year 2013 brought a long awaited facelift for the Duster: the introduction of more standard equipment, a longer list of options and a number of aesthetic changes. In addition, the Duster is offered in the company of a 1.2 turbo petrol engine, the most powerful engine ever offered on a Dacia series model.
Duster is one of the most popular Dacia models, although it is the top of the range, and its price is somewhat higher than the Logan and Sandero models. Even so, the Duster is the cheapest SUV on the market. Its base price is 10,900 euros with taxes included, which means that the Dacia Duster facelift is cheaper with 350 euros than the previous model.
