UAZ continues to work on updating of its models


Ulyanovsk Automobile Plant intends to continue to work on updating its models. Alexey Dmitriev, the head of the public relations department of the company, told live on Radio Avtodor how it will happen and which models will be touched at first.

Regarding the brand's sales leader - UAZ “Patriot” - Mr. Dmitriev recalled that quite recently the model has already been updated. And the updates almost did not affect the appearance (although the car, of course, received new wheels, a new body color). Major changes are technical, in response to the wishes of the owners. So, the vehicle has a new engine / Front Axle, which came into the design from a light commercial truck "Profi", improved the management situation: a huge gap left, which interfered. However, by analogy with the “Patriot”, the axle from the “Profi” is not planned to be put on the “Hunter”. The next scheduled update of "Patriot" is expected in 2019: the model will have a modern 6-speed "automatic" transmission. As for the possibility of the appearance of a diesel engine in the line of engines, as Mr. Dmitriev explained, the question is being worked out, but it is not worth waiting for any concrete solutions in this direction.

Changes in the near future will affect the truck "Profi". According to Mr. Dmitriev, the Profi will soon have a long-base version, which is being prepared for production. It is not excluded that in the course of further expansion of the model range on the platform "Profi", then a minibus will appear.

"Buchanka" and "Hunter" will remain on the conveyor of the Ulyanovsk plant for the time being and they will be assembled until they are in demand. In 2019 they will be also changed. For example, the excursion version, which appeared in the "Patriot" family this year, will appear also in these models.
