American no chance of a V8

Why do we love American cars in general and SUVs in particular? Of course, for multi-liter V8 – not too powerful, voracious, meaningless, but simple, high-torque and unpretentious.

Well, another important reason – of course, the presence of right-hand drive cars, which are traditionally a little cheaper than left-hand drive. But unlike the Pajero Mini, Jimny was not “endemic”, so the right-hand drive cars are less popular and make up only about 20% of the supply on the secondary market. Continue reading
