The car is available in five variations of performance – Classic Fleet, Classic, Optimum, Prestige and Maximum. Basic equipment Classic Fleet will cost 764,500 rubles, which is 15 thousand rubles more than the previous version of the “Patriot” Classic. This equipment includes ABS, EBD, LED DRLs, driver's airbag and heated and electrically adjustable exterior mirrors.
The main modernization of the "Patriot" was the new 2.7-liter 150-horsepower ZMZ-Pro engine and the upgraded five-speed manual gearbox. The steering is also significantly improved – the standard components are replaced by a more rigid trapezoid and a damper from the cargo van UAZ “Profi”.
