All-new Musso pick-up
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, Rexton. By replacing the Actyon Sports model with the new Musso, which means rhinoceros in Korean, the brand will be able to target international markets with renewed focus.
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.
“We are pleased to introduce another brand-new Sport Utility Truck, the new Musso for the pick-up customers with rigidity and durability. Musso will differentiate itself from the competition with a smart safety system as well as advanced features, towing capacity and versatility. We expect to repeat the success of the new Musso which has started in Korea with long wait list since its launch in January this year.” said CEO Choi.
The new Musso is powered by a 2.2-liter turbo diesel engine manufactured by SsangYong, and delivers maximum power of 181PS and torque 400Nm. It is available with either a 6-speed manual or an Aisin 6-speed automatic transmission. Safety features include lane change assist, rear cross traffic alert and blind spot detection to help prevent accidents.
