"The signs are promising for this pre-production SsangYong Musso pick-up, with good build quality at an affordable price"
"The SsangYong Musso pickup offers some of the luxury of the Mercedes X-Class, while undercutting the Mitsubishi L200"
"There’s yards of legroom in the back seat, and a Santa’s sleigh of kit in the front. Most versions have a really very good infotainment setup, with TomTom navigation and phone mirroring. The dash materials are decent quality in the pickup context. It’s a nice enough place to be"
"Ssangyong’s 2.2-litre diesel engine is pleasingly strong, so feels perfectly comfortable in and out of town. It’s decently quiet, too, even when pushed very hard. In this respect, the Musso is better than nearly all of its rivals"
The new Musso is a real pick up with real style. One thing it's certainly picking up is praise. No wonder. It's a big, bold, beauty. A stylishly versatile pick up with giant sized muscles. With a striking front end that commands attention and dynamic character lines that sweep across the side to a graceful rear.
Its luxurious interior offers comfort and tech that would grace a stylish SUV. The bold yet elegant exterior design flows from a robust body on frame construction built with ultra strength steel.
A powerful platform that it shares with the SsangYong Rexton - 4x4 magazine's 4x4 Of The Year 2018. This mighty physique anchors an impressive 4 wheel drive system that enables it to deliver exceptional off road driving, performance and safety.
With a physical prowess that few can match. It has a 3.5 tonne towing capability and can carry over a 1 tonne payload. And, of course, it comes with out best in class 5 year limitless mileage warranty.
The new Musso may be a seriously strong pick up truck. But it drives like an SUV. Double wishbone front suspension with rear mounted coils provides a smooth ride and excellent handling on any terrain. A quad frame body made with ultra strength steel gives it a reassuring rigidity. The SsangYong manufactured turbo diesel engine makes it highly efficient and remarkably quiet.
This 2.2 litre Euro 6 engine delivers maximum power of 181PS at 4000rpm and maximum torque of 400Nm at 1600-2600rpm. It's available with either a 6 speed manual transmission or an Aisin 6 speed automatic transmission, offering silky smooth gear changes and world class durability.
A real strength of the new Musso is its real strength. An extremely strong ladder chassis enables the vehicle to provide a substantial towing platform. In fact, it can tow 3.5 tonnes and carry more than a 1 tonne payload at the same time. A unique capability that means the new Musso can offer you unrivaled flexibility.
Keep calm and carry. The new Musso can handle whatever you throw at it or into it. The surprisingly generous load deck will take 1,011 litres of cargo with a payload of 1050kg and is large enough to carry a full sized Euro pallet. It also comes equipped with 12V/120W outlets to plug your power tools into. And has rotating hooks to strap down loads and stop your gear sliding around.
Driving a pick up isn't supposed to make you feel this good inside. The interior of the new Musso has been designed to offer a level of quality and comfort you'd expect from an SUV, not a pick up.
There's plenty of room to seat five passengers comfortably, with soft textured nappa leather seats that are heated front and rear. It has excellent NVH levels too. Eight body mounts and polyester wheel arch linings all help to reduce engine and road noise, vibration and harshness.
Smart choice. That's exactly what the new Musso offers you. There are three advanced state of the art infotainment systems. EX models feature a DAB radio with Bluetooth connectivity.
Rebel models feature a DAB radio with an 8" screen, built in rear view camera plus Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to connect to your smartphone. Upgrade to Saracen and you can enjoy all of these features and a huge 9.2" HD touchscreen with TomTom navigation for a great audio experience.
The new Musso is full of touches you'll appreciate, especially the steering wheel. It's shaped to give a firm grip in all conditions giving you fingertip control of your infotainment system, phone and cruise control. And best of all it's also heated to give you nice warm hands on the coldest of days.
