Ulyanovsk Automobile Plant in April 2020 will start selling the UAZ Pickup model equipped with an automatic transmission. This became known to the agency "Autostat".
- Most likely, the pickup will receive the same gearbox as the platform-based UAZ Patriot. In September 2019, sales of an SUV with a six-speed "automatic" French assembly, developed by Punch Powerglide in conjunction with General Motors, began.
On the Patriot, the "automatic" is combined with a modernized gasoline aspirated 2.7 with a capacity of 150 hp. (235 Nm). The engine with an increased compression ratio received about 30 new parts. These include, for example, a reinforced cylinder head, a modified water pump, thermostat, crankshaft and other elements.
- Prices for the new modification of the pickup will be announced closer to the start of sales, but you can estimate an approximate range. Now the cost of the model UAZ Pickup with "mechanics" is 0.84-1.22 million rubles, and the automatic transmission increases the cost of the Patriot by 90 thousand rubles.
