At the moment of crisis, the cheapest pickup on the Russian car market is a product of the local car industry, UAZ Pickup. They ask him for 840 thousand rubles in the maximum configuration. This amount can reduce special offers and promotions that are regularly announced. That's just after the UAZ on the price tag becomes the Chinese Photos Tuneland. Other representatives of trucks are much more expensive. For example, Toyota Hilux starts with 1 million 800 thousand rubles, Mitsubishi L200 - from 1480 thousand, and Volkswagen Amarok - from 1 677 thousand wooden.

Foton is not going to be limited to a pickup truck, he plans to bring to us a fully passenger model of the Foton Sauvana SUV. The Russians have already seen it at last year’s motor show in Moscow.
