Five reasons to love and hate the Nissan Pathfinder III

The name Pathfinder first appeared in the gamut of the Nissan brand in 1985, during the heyday of interest in off-road cars of the “universal” class, combining the permeability and utility of the “professionals” with the comfort of passenger cars. Then the designers of the brand did the same as everyone else: they took the four-wheel drive pickup truck chassis (with independent front suspension and reduction gear in the transmission) and equipped it with a station wagon. Thus was born the SUV with the factory code WD21. In other markets, this car was sold as a Terrano, and the production of this model continued until 1996, when it was replaced by the Pathfinder R50.
In 1993, a separate, purely European branch, named Terrano II, sprang from this trunk, which, nevertheless, soon sprouted in America under the name Ford Maverick (the car whose exterior was designed by Belgian designer Alain Bloné was developed jointly with the concern Ford) but this is a slightly different story.

Almost as real: the cheapest all-wheel drive crossovers

Most recently, we have already figured out what choice there is for those who need not just a crossover, but a real frame SUV, but at the same time for little money. Today we will talk about crossovers in their modern sense – that is, we will not include Niva here (neither the former nor the real one), as well as those cheap frames mentioned in the past material. And yet, even with the mandatory all-wheel drive, you can also meet the amount of “a million and a little.” What is on the market for this money?
Like it or not, and everything is expected to begin with Renault Duster. Keeping the extremely low cost of the basic configuration due to its absolutely minimal equipment, Duster, nevertheless, and with the increase in the number of options, remains one of the most attractive options.

The first SUV of Kazakhstan: the history of the creation of the car LAF 4101

The story began in the very city where, according to the creators of the “Gentlemen of Fortune” motion picture creator, the mother of Vasily Alibabayevich lived with her mother. It was in Dzhambul in 1996 that a private entrepreneur decided to try his hand at creating vehicles of his own design. Now they would say softly that this idea was not simple, but then, at the very peak of the devastation, people’s heads hurt about something else, and the majority didn’t care who did what. However, the owner of the largest maintenance station in the region felt that it was quite realizable.
Of course, at the very beginning of this path no major developments were foreshadowed. It all came down to changing the designs of finished cars. In the first case, the top and doors were removed from the Niva SUV and the body was reinforced. Thus, Alexander Loktev (the same entrepreneur) received a phaeton for his passion for hunting.
