GAZ 69: restyling or attempt to play on feelings?
It is not easy to realize that, practically, the entire modern auto industry rested on a virtual ceiling, both in design and in the technical component. There are also no their own developments that can at least slightly attract the client. Well, each plant is looking for a way out of the situation in its own way. Someone attracts foreign partners, and someone is trying to revive the past classics, but with new details.
For example, many people remember their fatherly or grandfathers compact “all -terrain vehicles” GAZ 69, simple and angular, nevertheless, capable of driving where it is necessary for the driver. There was no radiator of the Gazelle intercooler, there were no complex absorption systems. But the times go and designers make changes necessary for the non -precise operation of the system, compliance with environmental norms and safety.
Recently, information appeared that the capacities of one of the Russian factories decided to establish the release of the updated GAZ-69, which will only remotely resemble its ancestor outwardly, and in all the rest it will be quite modern, if not a jeep, then the crossover for sure.
The car will lose the frame, but it is unlikely to need it in a new guise. The car will weigh a little more than 700 kg in a equipped state. Front -wheel drive and an all -wheel drive connected through an exclusively designed differential will not surprise anyone. And, here, the basic equipment in the form of an anti -lock brake system, hydraulic power pillow, a couple of airbags – is already quite curious for this class of auto. A turbodiesel with a mechanical or automatic gearbox, at the choice of a client will be located under the hood, will be located under the hood.
The transformer salon and the removable roof will make it a favorite of summer residents and rural residents, and the price of less than $ 6,000 will not leave any doubts that the car will become a bestseller, despite how the consumer applies to such restyling.
The project is still at the stage of approval and, partly, in the development. But there is no doubt that with certain improvements he will enter the series very soon.
