The choice, as you can see great. Most drivers prefer diesel engines. The largest distribution and the number of positive feedback from the Russians received a 4.2-liter diesel, optimally suitable, in the opinion of the owners, under the weight of the vehicle and providing decent traction and power. And that's about the most powerful engine with 6 liters not the most flattering reviews: in principle all the time he shows himself at a high level, but in the winter when the light stops cold start.

Relative to gasoline engines, unfortunately, the owners speak also not very well, for example,  from experience after many years of operation gasoline 3-hlitrovyy suddenly the engine starts pounding. This is determined by a breakdown of the rod with the piston. And what a sad thing, even after repairs a year later the same thing happens.
