SsangYong has increased the towing capacity of its Musso one-tonne pick-up to 3,500kg, following approval by the Vehicle Certification Agency responsible for Vehicle Type Approval.
The £16,395 (ex VAT) Musso is powered by a 2.2 litre turbo-diesel engine and has four-wheel-drive.
“With one of the most powerful engines in its class, a refined automatic gearbox and car like ride - thanks to its multilink rear suspension, Musso sales have really taken off since its launch last autumn,” said Paul Williams, CEO of SsangYong Motor UK.
There are two models in the range. The SE includes a new-look front grille and dashboard, as well as silver finish 18” alloy wheels and hard wearing ‘leather look’ TPU seat upholstery.
The EX is distinguished by black 18” 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, seven-inch touchscreen RDS radio with iPod and Bluetooth. The EX with manual transmission is priced at £18,395 ex VAT, and with a six speed Aisin automatic £19,395 ex VAT.
