   Production of the Renault TRM 2000 commenced during 1983 and it had been manufactured at a rate of about 140 vehicles each month - at one time the French Army had a requirement for 12 000 of these vehicles but this total probably was not achieved due to defense budget restrictions.

   The Renault TRM 2000 uses a forward control cab layout and two main versions are produced. One is the High Mobility model with the other being a straight axle model having reduced ground clearances (0.3 m) under the axle differentials and with a reduced overall height (2.59 m). Both models are otherwise identical. The usual forward-tilting hard-topped cab can be replaced by a soft-top version known as a torpedo cab. This version is normally used completely open as it is intended for use in North Africa and has been procured by Morocco. The overall construction of the TRM 2000 is extremely strong and it has an excellent cross country performance. When used as a personnel transporter, bench seats can be erected in the rear to carry up to 12 troops. The drop sides and tailgate can be removed to enable the vehicle to carry communication and other shelters while van-bodied versions can be used as ambulances, command posts, or workshops.

   The TRM 2000 is powered by Renault 3.6-liter diesel engine, developing 117 hp.

   There is also a 2000-liter tanker version, a specialized forward air control post for strike aircraft and the vehicle has been used to carry 20 mm anti-aircraft cannon fired from the load area. It can also be used to tow 120 mm mortars, other artillery guns or trailers weighing up to 2 000 kg.

   Recovery vehicle and workshop vehicle variants have been produced.
