If you’re still broken-hearted over the demise of the Land Rover Defender, then we might have a replacement for you. The Russian brand UAZ looks to fill that hole with the release of their UAZ Hunter ($CALL). The Hunter features two engine options, a 2.6-liter gas engine that puts our 128 horses and 209 Nm and a 2.2-liter diesel engine, that puts out 83 horses and 270 Nm. These engines are paired with a part-time four-wheel drive system and a 5-speed manny. Although these engines feel unpowered UAZ is claiming pretty good fuel economy. With the gas engine providing 24.5 mpg and the diesel giving you 29 mpg. Additional features include 16-inch alloy wheels, a dependent coil setup in the front and leaf springs in the back. The whole setup lets you get through about two feet of water with no issues.
About Lee King
I live in a great city outside of Philadelphia and run Muted in my free time. Being close to a number of large metropolitan areas gives me a lot of inspiration for menswear and gear. Originally from Pittsburgh as well as a Suburban Detroit transplant I went to Michigan State University and spent most of my career managing global IT services for Pharmaceuticals. Besides mens clothing I enjoy, bonsai, my family, dogs and hanging by the pool.
