Ssangyong has launched its new Musso one-tonne pick-up, priced from £15,995.
Previously called the Korando, the new pick-up truck is powered by a 2.2-litre Euro 6 diesel engine.
The load area is 2.04m2, and capable of carrying a europallet.
“Our commercial vehicles represent an intrinsic part of the SsangYong range,” said Paul Williams, CEO of SsangYong Motor UK.
“We decided to reintroduce the Musso name to differentiate this superb utility truck from our passenger cars. Musso - which means rhinoceros in Korean - is a tough, robust proposition for any trade, and with a specification, price and warranty no others can compete with.”
The new Musso is fitted with multi-link rear suspension and progressive rear coil springs 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” alloy wheels and hard wearing ‘leather look’ TPU seat upholstery. It is priced from £15,995 ex VAT.
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, 7” 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.
The new Musso one tonne pick-up is covered by a 5 year limitless mileage warranty.
