Model History

March 2018
SsangYong Musso launched

All-new multi-purpose truck with 'Quad frame' body-on-frame construction and 4x4 system, one-tonne payload and 3.5 tonne towing capacity.

Euro pallet sized load deck. Interior space for five and improved ride comfort. Comprehensively equipped including advanced infotainment system. Safety aids include six airbags on all models. The pick-up also gets DAB radio and Bluetooth connectivity on all models. Apple CarPlay. Google Android Auto.

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

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 1600 to 2600 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, 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.

The doors are designed to cover the sills along the lower part of the body to ensure passengers don’t pick up dirt from the side of the car when getting in and out, and the 20-inch wheels on the top line model add to the vehicle’s overall presence. Euro pallet sized load deck comes equipped with 12V/120W power outlets and rotating hooks to help strap-down loads such as tools and equipment.
