Geneva Motor Show debut for 2018 SsangYong Musso pick-up
SsangYong shows off European version of its new Musso pick-up truck, with space for five and the ability to carry loads weighing a tonne.
The Korean manufacturer has based the new model on its recently launched Rexton SUV, and the Musso shares elements with the car, such as the 181 horsepower 2.2-litre diesel engine. It also comes with a choice of a six-speed manual and six-speed automatic gearbox. It offers part-time four-wheel drive, and the ability to switch between high and low ratios to deal with trickier off-road terrain.
The engine helps give the Musso the ability to carry more than one tonne in weight, and pull trailers weighing up to 3.5-tonnes. The loading bay comes with lashing hooks to tie down tools and loads, and it also features 12V/120W power outlets, so accessories can be plugged in.
Although pricing has not yet been confirmed, SsangYong confirms the Musso will go on sale in the summer.
