The best pickups available on the russian market


The pickup is quite a unique car. This is due to the fact that the vehicle combines both a passenger car and a truck. Therefore, it is logical to also call them cargo crossovers or cargo SUVs. Pickups in Russia are not the most popular body type among affordable cars, but have their own wide audience. Mostly similar cars are bought by the owners of summer cottages, residents of private houses, businessmen, fishermen and hunters. Having a pickup at your disposal, it is convenient to go on a trip, go on a hunt, transport some things without asking for help from carriers. This is a practical form of transport, which also needs to be able to choose the right one. We propose to study the rating of the best pickups for Russia, which are available in the secondary market and among new cars. Depending on your needs and budget, you can purchase a used pickup or contact an authorized dealer of the manufacturer you like.

Criterias of choice

There are increased requirements for pick-ups, since the car is designed to perform several functions simultaneously. Now the range is quite impressive, which allows you to choose among the elite brands, middle segment and budget cars. A full-fledged pickup truck that deserves the title of the best in Russia should have the following characteristics:

  1. High-quality assembly. This is a primary requirement, the discrepancy which will not allow the car and get close to the top 10 best representatives of this segment. Practice clearly shows that the best quality pickups collect proven automakers with a good reputation.
  2. Patency. You choose an SUV, focused no longer on the city, and to operate outside of it. If the car has a small ground clearance (clearance), can not overcome even minor bumps or call on the curb, it can not be called a pickup truck. It is rather a parody of a cargo SUV.
  3. Load capacity Large body is designed to transport things. Initially, it was the favorite machine builders, repairmen. But over time, the advantages of a pickup truck were appreciated by summer residents, hunters, fishermen, fans of tourism and outdoor activities. Because the machine is obliged to carry a fairly impressive amount of cargo, otherwise the meaning of such a cargo compartment disappears.
  4. The engine Motor does not have to be installed powerful. Some motors with a relatively small amount of horsepower demonstrate excellent traction characteristics. Practice shows that for diesel cargo crossovers the diesel engine will be the best choice. But this is not necessary, as the car behaves well with gasoline engines.
  5. Comfort. This criterion is not in the first place, but it plays a significant role. The driver should be comfortable and comfortable behind the wheel, as well as its passengers.
  6. Number of seats. Initially, pickups were focused on transportation, because most of these machines were produced only with 1 row of seats, next to the driver. In total, in the SUV fit 2 - 3 people. Modern pickups are the perfect synthesis of a truck and a car, because a roomy body is perfectly combined with 2 rows of seats, which allows you to carry cargo and 4 - 6 people at a time.

Next, we propose to find out which pickups in 2018 in Russia are considered the best, and why they are included in the final ten leaders. In this segment, the choice is easier to make, since the range is more limited compared to traditional crossovers and SUVs.

Rating Representatives

The list of the best pickups in Russia, which made up the final rating, includes mostly eminent manufacturers. But there are some companies that do not have a large army of fans, or have not yet managed to gain popularity of the Russians. The list includes used and new pickups. They are represented by the following automakers:

  • Volkswagen;
  • Nissan;
  • SsangYong;
  • Great Wall;
  • Dodge;
  • Toyota;
  • Mazda;
  • Ford;
  • Mitsubishi;
  • UAZ.

Now let's consider separately the most popular pickups, available in Russia and deserving their place in the top 10.


The first representative of the pickup category, but not in the final top 10. He is not up to the level of competitors, although it would be wrong to not mention him. Therefore honorable 11th place. Pick up. Or just a UAZ pickup. Domestic car, which in many respects resembles the model Patriot, but is made in the back of a pickup truck. In favor of such a decision says its value. New domestic pickup from the company UAZ costs 840 thousand rubles. For top-end equipment will have to pay from 1.3 million. The car has been produced since 2008. This is a good workhorse, practical car, where there is nothing superfluous. But many useful options needed by the modern car owner, SUV is deprived.

UAZ Pickup

The main purpose of the UAZ can be considered fishing trips, hunting, off-road. If you mostly prefer the urban cycle of driving, you will not like many things in this car. But at this price, the car still remains among the best pickups sold in Russia. It is reliable, requires a minimum of attention, inexpensive to maintain. Under the hood is a gasoline 2.7-liter and 2.2-liter diesel engine to choose from. Only the standard five-speed transmission is available to them in a pair. It is safe to say that this is the cheapest pickup truck sold in Russia, which is among the top ten leaders in the segment.

Actyon Sports

Despite the prefix Sports, under this name, the company SsangYong released to the market a pickup of its own production. If you are interested in budget models that are sold in Russia, then you should pay attention to Actyon. Korean-made pickups (SsangYong company from South Korea, not from China) have been producing since 2006. The car has undergone many changes since then. Now the car looks much more attractive than its predecessors, has decent technical characteristics and attracts buyers with its price. Among all the modifications sold, the cheapest is from 1.2 million rubles. If you want to get the maximum equipment and a rich package, prepare at least 1.6 million rubles. A choice of pickups are offered in Russia with 2.3-liter engines (petrol) and 2.0 liters (diesel). Their power, respectively, 150 and 149 horsepower. Together with them goes 6MKPP or 6AKPP.

Actyon Sports


Not the most popular pickup among those presented. But the car is interesting and deserves attention. This is the development of the company Great Wall. The only Chinese car that managed to get into the rating of pickups for reliability. The release began in 2007. The current price starts from 830 thousand rubles. Approaching a million, you can get a Wingle with a rich list of components. The car combines practicality, efficiency and affordability. Largely due to the low price and good build quality, the car was in the top. Specifications are not the most exemplary. The entire line consists of one 2.2-liter engine. Powered by diesel fuel and produces only 106 horsepower. Complements its five-speed manual gearbox. But there is a permanent four-wheel drive. Wingle can be called an alternative to the domestic UAZ. Chinese pickup has more modern and diverse equipment, offers a little more for the driver and passengers, due to which wins the competition. To build quality claims no special. But obvious Chinese origin can be traced.

Next come pickups from world leaders among automakers. A model called BT-50 from the Japanese company Mazda opens the list. The Japanese managed to combine in the car quite exquisite appearance with incredible practicality. Although America is home to pickups, Mazda understands the true essence of this body type. Because the output turned out able-bodied car with high traffic and a terrific capacity. The ideal decision for giving, rest, country trips, hunting and fishing.

The only problem is that the machine is no longer available. Whether the company took a break, or abandoned the further idea of ​​the development of the pickup segment. Therefore, VT-50 is available only in the secondary market at a price of about 650-700 thousand rubles for the 2011 version. But if you need an inexpensive pickup truck, of which there is no doubt about reliability and durability, you can spend 650 thousand on the BT-50. And sometimes even necessary. The buyer is offered a choice of a pair of engines running on diesel fuel. Their volume is 2.2 and 3.2 liters, and the power of 150 and 200 horsepower, respectively. Ground clearance in as much as 200 millimeters does not leave a chance to easy and medium off-road.

If you need maximum throughput, then among all pickups represented in the rating, this Nissan company has the best off-road characteristics. The car is offered in several trim levels, but the basic equipment already offers a wide list of useful and necessary equipment. The car is perfectly adapted for driving in winter conditions. To do this, Nissan has added a preheater to the standard NP300, supplied a high-capacity battery and a reinforced suspension. Heated front seats and even nozzles. But in the database there is no air conditioning. Because pickup is better to take at least in the configuration Comfort. A better Premium, where there is literally everything.

Nissan NP300

Alas, the car is only available in the secondary market. They ask about 750 thousand rubles for it for the latest versions in good condition. Because you do not have to spend so much money to get a great pickup.

The car with the name L200 from Mitsubishi has been around for over 20 years and is selling successfully. The first samples of the Japanese pickup went on sale in 1994.

One of the best European pickups, if not the best at the moment. The company Volkswagen unexpectedly for many has released its own pickup.
