Ssangyong Musso

Ssangyong’s new Musso pickup promises to bring extra farming appeal – thanks to a 1t payload, Euro-pallet-sized load-bed and a 3t towing capacity.

Up front there’s a 2.2-litre turbo diesel engine offering a maximum power of 178hp and 400Nm torque, which the company says is delivered from 1,400rpm to 2,800rpm.
