“Car” with a supporting body.
Recently it became known that VIS-Auto decided to try their luck and give a second chance to Niva-Medved by releasing a special version of LADA 4 × 4. According to AvtoVAZ, namely, it owns VIS-Auto, the novelty will receive overall dimensions tires and an on-board platform.
The basis for the special version will be “Lynx on the basis of the LADA 4 × 4” – VIS-23461, which has never been included in large-scale serial production. In fact, the new LADA 4 × 4 pickup truck could become a bestseller, but it’s just a mixture of the “classics”, Bronto and Priora.
After analyzing the data, the experts said that the new product is no different from a simple LADA 4 × 4 pickup truck with a frameless body structure. “Unless onboard gears can save this car, and giant tires add patency,” they said.
In addition, the developers dubbed their creation not just a pickup truck, but a snow and swamp truck-pickup truck, as it is based on an independent springy suspension, as well as all-wheel drive with a differential lock system. As for the similarity with the LADA 4 × 4 Bronto, then from this SUV a modernized version of the VIS-23461 got axles and gearboxes.
The engineers also borrowed a 5-speed manual gearbox, paired with a “classic” 1.7-liter engine with a capacity of 83 horsepower from the LADA 4 × 4 2019-2020 model year.
In fact, it would be nice. If the designers borrowed the interior and exterior design from the updated Niva, but the LADA 4×4 pickup would get a dorestyled interior and exterior. True with improved heating and ventilation system.
