The Bremach Taos SUV is an old-school truck that’s based on a Russian UAZ
Based on the Russian-built UAZ Patriot, the Bremach Taos SUV is equipped with solid axles, a truck frame, and a classic outline, reminiscent of the departed Isuzu Trooper. Built to hold five passengers, the Bremach Taos is about the same size as a Toyota RAV4 (the Taos is about three-inches longer), but it’s a lot taller. That has to do with the fact that there’s a beefy frame underneath, which allows for a pickup truck variant – called the Brio.
Power comes from a gas 2.7-liter, four-cylinder engine that makes 150 horsepower. Many numbers, (like torque) are not available on the Bremach USA website. We know the UAZ Patriot makes about 160 lbs-feet, but that’s based on a less powerful engine. The Taos comes with a GM-sourced 6L50 six-speed automatic transmission. A manual transmission is supposed to follow. It appears that the Bremach Taos comes standard with four-wheel drive and a host of modern features.

- Cornering Brake Control (CBC), introduced by BMW and Mercedes-Benz as a further development and expansion of the anti-lock braking system, designed to distribute braking force during braking while cornering
- Hydraulic Brake Assist System (HBA)
One major (optional) bonus: an Eaton electronic locking differential. The Taos has 8.26-inches of ground clearance and a wading depth of 19.68 inches. It also has a 35-degree approach and 30-degree departure angle. Better than most crossovers, but it falls a bit short of the Jeep Wrangler.
“This handsome SUV is at home handling most anything – from day-to-day family errands to executive functions, to extreme 4×4 off-roading. Whether accustomed to the security and utility of an SUV such as the Lexus LX or wanting the advanced gearing and 4×4 ability of a Land Rover for weekend fun, consider the value offered in a standard 2022 Bremach TAOS.”
One item that’s impressive is Bremach USA’s warranty which is a 5-year, 60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper with a 10-year, 120,000-mile powertrain warranty.
