SsangYong Musso (2016–2018)
SsangYong Musso goes on sale
Powered by a smooth and refined 2.2 litre Euro 6 turbo-diesel engine, the Musso pick-up delivers huge value.
Designed to appeal to those who need a competitively priced work truck, the practicality of four-wheel drive, the towing capability to haul up to 3.0 tonnes.
The Musso went on sale in October 2016 and features a Euro 6 turbodiesel engine to meet the demand for a more powerful performance and lower CO2 emissions at the same time. Maximum power is 178PS and torque 400Nm, with maximum torque delivered from a low of 1400rpm and maintained through a wide range up to 2800rpm for smooth, progressive driving from the start.
The new Musso is fitted with multi-link rear suspension and progressive rear coil springs - the only pick-up at this price to offer such a system - which gives a relaxed and comfortable car-like ride, while also carrying over a tonne weight on its load deck.
There are two models in the range. The SE includes a new-look front grille and dashboard, as well as silver finish 18-inch alloy wheels and hard wearing ‘leather look’ TPU seat upholstery. It is priced from just £15,995 ex VAT.
The EX is distinguished by black 18-inch alloy wheels, roof rails, front LED daytime running lights, leather with heated front seats, power operated driver’s seat, automatic air conditioning, automatic headlights, rain sensing wipers, 7-inch touchscreen RDS radio with iPod and Bluetooth. The EX with manual transmission is priced at £17,995 ex VAT, and with a six speed Aisin automatic £18,995 ex VAT.
Towing capability increased to 3.5 tonnes
The Musso gets an increase in its towing capacity, following a new approval by the UK Vehicle Certification Agency. This means the SsangYong pick-up can tow 3500kg when linked to a braked trailer.
