Production of UAZ Pickup with automatic transmission launched in Ulyanovsk

The first Pickups fitted with automatic transmission have rolled off the production line of the Ulyanovsk Automobile Plant. Three cars from the first batch were handed over to the regional inspectorate of the Federal Transportation Inspection Service (Rostransnadzor) as part of the federal programme to develop the transport system.

This new version of the UAZ Pickup, created in response to numerous requests from customers, retains all the advantages of the manual version. In addition to practicality and versatility, users are also guaranteed an advanced level of driving comfort.

The car is equipped with the PUNCH Powerglide 6L50 6-speed automatic transmission manufactured in France. This classic automatic transmission with torque converter provides huge reserves of power, with maximum output of 320 HP and maximum torque of 500 Nm. The transmission is matched with the proven 2.7-liter ZMZ-Pro petrol engine, with a maximum output of 149.6 HP and 235 Nm.

High road clearance, impressive cross-country performance, robust chassis construction, 4WD with low-power gears and optional rear axle differential lockup with electronic control endow the model with outstanding off-road characteristics. The automatic transmission, meanwhile, significantly improves the comfort of traction control in any driving mode.

As with the UAZ Patriot SUV with automatic transmission, the UAZ Pickup automatic transmission is distinguished by its grille with black gloss fixtures. The basic version includes driver and front-passenger air bags, heated exterior mirrors with electric control, air conditioner, electric windows on all doors, immobiliser, athermal glass, steering column with adjustable reach and tilt, electronic ABS and EBD systems, and LED daytime running lights. Depending on the version, the load capacity varies from 800 to 865 kilograms (including the weight of driver and passengers).

The inspectors of the Federal Transportation Inspection Service (Rostransnadzor) were the first to test the potential of the new version. The vehicles in special colors handed over to the organisation as part of the federal program to develop the transport system are equipped with yellow rotating warning lights and metrological measuring equipment. “We are happy to have a fruitful partnership with the Ulyanovsk Region and the federal authorities. Despite the limitations resulting from the pandemic, the Ulyanovsk Automobile Plant managed in June to implement the production of a new model with automatic transmission, and we hope that the transportation inspection services will appreciate both the driving comfort and the off-road abilities of these vehicles,” said Alexey Spirin, Executive Director at LLC UAZ.

The UAZ Pickup with automatic transmission is covered by the manufacturer's official warranty for three years or 100,000 kilometers.
