SsangYong offers the SsangYong Musso as the brand's entry to the midsize pickup truck segment. The South Korean midsize pickup is the product of the SsangYong and Daimler-Benz collaboration. The model's name Musso is the Korean term for rhinoceros, representing the concept of the SsangYong Musso – rigidity and power. However, the car's nameplate was initially a moniker for the SsangYong brand's midsize SUVs in the early 90s. The South Korean carmaker introduced the Musso's pickup body in early 2000. SsangYong Musso rides on the brand's latest body-on-frame using the Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS). The exterior features of the SsangYong Musso have the same styling as that of the SsangYong Rexton – the brand's midsize SUV. The exterior lines are well pronounced and complement the shape of the vehicle. The overall exterior design of the Ssangyong Musso is pretty similar to most SsangYong models. The exterior's overall design is executed cleanly and portrays a sense of sportiness mixed with a stash of style. The cabin of the SsangYong Musso features a well-appointed, spacious, and clean cabin. The car is also equipped with generous technological features. It includes an infotainment system with an 8-inch HD screen, Bluetooth, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay connectivity, plus a Dual-zone full automatic air-conditioner. SsangYong Philippines offers the Musso in four variants: SsangYong Musso Grand 2.2 4x2 MT, SsangYong Musso Grand 2.2 4x2 AT, SsangYong Musso 2.2 4x2 AT, and SsangYong Musso Grand 2.2 4x4 AT.

Launch

SsangYong launched the SsangYong Musso in 2018. The model serves as the entry of the South Korean carmaker in the pickup truck segment. The SsangYong Musso is the pickup version of the SsangYong Rexton. Instead of the third row of seats, the Musso comes with a large cargo bay and a few more changes over the South Korean SUV. 

SsangYong Philippines offers the Ssangyong Musso in seven color options – Silky White, Atlantic Blue, Maroon Brown, Space Black, Fine Silver, and Marble Grey. The vehicle is also available in a standard 4x2 variant.  

Filipino car buyers have four variant options of the SsangYong Musso: SsangYong Musso Grand 2.2 4x2 MT, SsangYong Musso Grand 2.2 4x2 AT, SsangYong Musso 2.2 4x2 AT, and SsangYong Musso Grand 2.2 4x4 AT.

The Musso bears the same sleek design cues as the Korando crossover

Exterior

As mentioned earlier, the SsangYong Musso is the pickup version of the brand's SUV, Rexton. It directly implies that the South Korean pickup shares a lot of design traits with the SsangYong Rexton. Overall, the exterior design of the SsangYong Musso is too mild for a duty-oriented pickup truck, but it still has a large and intimidating stance. 

The front fascia of the pickup appears to be simple and boxy. However, there's the presence of the sweptback headlamps along with daytime running LEDs and projector units within them. SsangYong Musso also sports a hexagonal grille with thin chrome linings along with the brand's logo. Although the car's grille looks big, it comes with a simple layout that may not quickly grab people's attention.

Interior

The SsangYong Musso has one of the rich and premium cabins, among other pickups. It features a very nice blend of black and chestnut brown that creates a luxurious feel inside the cabin. Heated and cooled seats are available depending on the variant. The vehicle's interior also sports a very posh driver's cockpit that has an inviting instrument cluster, large colored MID screen, and a large three-spoke steering wheel. The presence of the 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system makes the center console appear wide. Along with it are the dual-zone automatic climate control buttons that are laid horizontally and vertical AC vents with silver finish.

Technology & Safety features

In terms of infotainment, the SsangYong Musso did not disappoint. It is equipped with a large 8-inch LCD smart audio head unit with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capabilities. The air conditioning controls are in the form of dual-zone climate controls that comes with rear vents. A pair of 12-volt sockets are also available in the South Korean pickup. One is situated in the front part of the cabin while the other is located in the vehicle's bed. The SsangYong Musso also has a USB outlet in the cabin.

The Korean pickup is also equipped with several safety features, including ABS with EBD, traction control system, six airbags, and a rearview camera, which comes as a standard in select variants.

Platform & Chassis

Ssangyong Musso is a four-door pickup truck that can accommodate five occupants. It has a length of 5405 mm, a width of 1950 mm, a 3210 mm wheelbase, and a ground clearance of 216 mm. The double-wishbone front suspension and a five-link coil-spring suspension at the rear provide a sorted handling balance and ride quality despite being a heavy pickup based on a ladder-on-frame chassis. However, the Musso Grand comes with a live axle rear with leaf springs to handle its bigger bed and bigger load capacity. 

The ventilated discs at the front and the rear solid discs provide the stopping power of the SsangYong Musso.

Engine & Drivetrain

Under the hood of the SsangYong Musso lies 2.2L Diesel Engine, 4 Cylinder 16 Valve DOHC that creates 179 horsepower and 420 Newton-meter of maximum torque. The powerplant is mated to a six-speed ASIN automatic transmission that sends power on the rear axles for the sole variant. It also comes with a drive mode selection. 

The South Korean pickup is available in Manual and Automatic transmission depending on the variant. The vehicle's fuel consumption also depends on the fuel type and variant, but it has 11.62 kmpl fuel efficiency on the highway. 

The SsangYong Musso features an impressive engine with its power delivery and refinement; however, the absence of the 4x4 drivetrain will surely be felt when the tough gets going.
