Finding a “live” Land Cruiser with a mileage is not so easy, so many Russians are thinking about finding an alternative to this model. A blogger told about one of these SUVs.
The author of the channel Avto REVIZORRO is sure that not only a worthy rival, but also a Toyota Land Cruiser "killer" can be considered the Dodge Ram 1500. Nothing breaks in this car. As the blogger noted, only if you try hard you can break the CV joint or drive. True, it happens that knock steering kardanchiki.
As for the copies, issued before 2013, they had a “sore” associated with hydrojacks, because of which, in turn, the camshaft could become inoperable. As the reviewer emphasized, the cost of maintaining this pickup in Russia is comparable to the Ford Focus. At the same time, finding the “living” Ram 1500 is much easier than “Kruzak”.
In the engine compartment of the "American" is 5.7-liter V8 engine with a return of 396 horsepower. Due to the fact that it is possible to turn off half of the cylinders, as well as due to the 8-step “automatic”, the fuel consumption of the model is not as high as one would expect. It is about 14-16 liters per 100 km.
The blogger also conducted off-road tests on snow, in which, in addition to the Dodge Ram 1500 and the Land Cruiser 200, another American car took part – the Ford F-150 Raptor. In terms of terrain won the Ram.
Prices for a used Dodge Ram 1500, released about ten years ago, start at 1,000,000 rubles. Buying a more recent copy, for example, 2014 will have to pay a little more than 2 million rubles.
