A month ago it became known that the GAZ Group managed to obtain the Type Approval of a vehicle, which applies not only to the Russian market, but also makes it possible to supply Sadko Next to the EAEU countries, including Kazakhstan, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan and Armenia.
The first information about the creation of the truck was leaked to the public in 2015. Three years later, GAZ officially brought the novelty to the presentation in Germany. For a long time, the almost finished model bore the title of prototype, which was assigned the number GAZ-С41А23. By tradition, the novelty has received an index starting with C4.

260 mm can be added to the length by installing a winch on the front bumper. As a power unit for Next, a turbocharged diesel engine of 4.4 liters with the output of 149 hp is installed. and 490 Nm of torque. It is aggregated with a 5-speed manual gearbox. Depending on the modification, the weight of the car varies from 4, 23 and 4, 4 tons. With a winch, it increases by 190 kg. The carrying capacity was increased to 2260-2620 kg.
