Stronger than your average SUV. Our Standard 4×4 class uses the newest model of the UAZ Patriot which still has a frame and still has solid axles front and rear with manual transmissions and low range transfer cases. These are what SUVs used to be. The interiors are up to date with power options, heated front seats, and air conditioning, but underneath they are pure, rugged SUV. They also come with standard safety features like driver and passenger airbags and anti-lock brakes. Comparing the Standard and Expedition class 4x4s, the main advantage of the Expedition class is longer range fuel tanks and faster travel speeds. The standard class is not as refined an adventure machine as the expedition class, but is eminently capable and rugged. So deciding between the two is a matter of choosing a more expensive but more refined machine, or a solid 4×4 that’s not quite as refined but is cheaper. The Standard class is allowed to go throughout Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan.

Classic Standard 4x4s

In addition we have a varied assortment of classic 4x4s that are around 10-12 years old, but are in excellent condition and are regularly overhauled by professional mechanics. These include a 2004 Jeep Wrangler with a 4.0 liter inline 6 engine and automatic transmission and a 2004 Lexus GX470 with a 4.7 V8 gasoline engine and an automatic transmission (the GX470 is a Toyota Land Cruiser Prado with luxury trim). Our classic 4x4s are limited to Kyrgyzstan driving only.
