Last week in Los Angeles, the American presentation of the UAZ Patriot SUV, which will be sold by the Californian Bremach company, under the name Bremach 4×4, took place. Let’s remind about these plans first became known a year ago… It was originally planned to release a car called Taos, but this idea was abandoned, since such a model was released by Volkswagen last year.
The American “Patriot” will be available in two versions: standard and for extreme off-road (with special wheels, a different body kit, steel power bumpers and towing eyes brought out). In both cases, a 2.7-liter ZMZ Pro petrol engine with 149 hp is installed. and a 6-speed Punch Powerglide 6L50 automatic transmission. The car is equipped with permanent rear and all wheel drive.
The standard version of the SUV in the US costs $ 26,405, or about 1.9 million rubles. Moreover, in Russia, such a car costs from 1.4 million rubles, what we are talking about reported recently… Bremach has already received $ 3.8 million in the first 24 hours since the start of pre-orders. The exact number of pre-orders has not been disclosed, but it is known that the minimum payment for a car is only $ 100.
According to Bremash representatives, UAZ Patriot became the first Russian car officially supplied to the United States. At the same time, the importer claims that it has the best price-performance ratio in the midsize SUV class in the United States. The car has a 5-year warranty or 100 thousand km of run. For transmission – 10 years or 200 thousand km.
Bremach also plans to assemble cars in California from Russian vehicle kits. The first buyers will receive their Bremach 4×4 next year.
