SsangYong picks up the pace with Musso

April 3, 2018

The all-new SsangYong Musso pick-up arrives in the UK this summer and will be aiming to make its mark in the highly popular and competitive sector.

The new Musso is an extremely competent multi-purpose vehicle with traditional SsangYong values – comprehensively equipped, a superb five-year limitless mileage warranty with a value for money package expected at launch.

As Korea’s leading and only SUV and 4×4 specialist manufacturer, SsangYong is committed to refreshing its entire product portfolio, and recently completed its SUV model line-up by launching its all-new flagship model – the Rexton.

Now, just a few months later it is launching this pick-up. This new Musso pick-up – Musso means rhinoceros in Korean – takes its strong, tough and powerful image from the SUV of the same name employed by the brand since the 1990s.

Built on the same architecture as the new Rexton, Musso shares its body-on-frame construction to give an extremely strong vehicle that delivers excellent off-road driving performance and safety from its quad-frame and four-wheel-drive system.

Designed to carry passengers in comfort and transport hefty loads securely, Musso combines a five-seat crew-cab body style with a workman-like load deck that will accommodate a full-sized Euro pallet. It also carries over one tonne in load weight, and tows trailers of up to 3.5 tonnes. This combination of utility pick-up and SUV means Musso offers the perfect blend of functionality, practicality, performance and comfort to the driver and family or workmates.

Musso is powered by the same e-XDi220 engine found in the Rexton and delivers a maximum power of 181ps at 4,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 420Nm at 1,600 to 2,600 rpm (automatic transmission). It is available with either a 6-speed manual or an Aisin 6-speed automatic with its success proven by a number of other automotive brands.

Inside, Musso is extremely well equipped compared with other pick-ups, and as well as offering excellent shoulder and leg room, Nappa leather seats can be found on the top of the range model for luxury and comfort. DAB radio and Bluetooth connectivity feature across the range, while all but the entry level model feature a state-of-the-art infotainment system that includes an 8-inch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Wi-Fi mirroring.
