GAZ started the production of the Valdai Next truck


The Gorky Automobile Plant began the serial production of the Valdai Next cabover medium-duty truck. Investments of GAZ Group in the development and organization of car production were about 1.4 billion rubles, including 400 million rubles of a soft loan at 1% per annum from the Industrial Development Fund (managed by VEB.RF), the press service of the automaker reported.

At the first stage, the gross weight of the new medium-tonnage vehicle will be 6.7 tons, the carrying capacity (on the chassis) - up to 3.8 tons. In the GAZ model range, the vehicle will occupy a niche between the "heavy" version of the GAZelleNext (gross weight 4.6 tons, carrying capacity up to 2.2 t) and GAZonNext (gross weight 8.7 t, carrying capacity up to 5 t).

The main direction of usage of Valday Next is an urban delivery van. The vehicle is produced with two wheelbases (3310 and 4000 mm) and with three options for the length of the loading platform: 4700, 5100 and 6100 mm. The volume of the cargo compartment is from 20 to 29 cubic meters. The body area allows you to place from 8 to 11 standard Euro pallets. Initially, three types of superstructures will be available for the order: manufactured goods and isothermal vans, euro platforms. In the future, there will be other options for special equipment.

Valdai Next is equipped with a Cummins ISF 2.8 diesel engine (power - 130 hp, torque - 353 Nm) in combination with a 6-speed manual transmission - a new development of GAZ. The vehicle is equipped with an air braking system with disc brakes on all wheels, integral steering, a wide range of electronic driver assistance systems, including: EBD (brake force distribution system), ESP (directional stability system), assistance system when starting up (HSA) and traction control (ASR).

The cab is equipped with an efficient heating system with electrically adjustable and electrically heated mirrors, LED running lights. Cruise control is also standard on the vehicle. Optionally, the truck will be equipped with air conditioning, preheater and roof fairing.

The strength of the frame in compare with the previous generation Valdai has been increased by 30% due to the usage of a new steel grade and additional cross members. Many elements of the transmission are used from the "older", heavier model - "GAZonNext 8.7": axle, front and rear suspensions, braking system and steering.
