SsangYong Musso updates its style and features for MY21

SsangYong Australia has released some styling upgrades to 2021 Musso 4×4 dual cab Ute with a striking new front end design and new wheel designs.

Lee Kang, Head of the SsangYong Design Centre, said, “The new Musso embodies strength and toughness. The magnificent and imposing grille wraps the horizontal breadth of the front and harmonises with the restrained bumper that subtly supports the solid body.”

On the side and rear, the character lines connect with the integrated LED headlights and radiator grille and the rear combination lights which show the presence of a fully-fledged dual cab Ute.

New 17-inch and 18-inch alloy wheel designs with dark treatment to the door handles, mirrors and beltlines further enhances Musso’s rugged, commanding presence.

There is also a choice of six body colours: Grand White, Silky White Pearl, Marble Grey, Space Black, Atlantic Blue, and Indian Red. Interior upholstery is available in premium woven fabric, Leather-look TPU or Premium Nappa leather in the new range-topping option.

Markedly different from its competitors, the Musso allow users to choose between two load bed lengths and capacities, depending on their use and needs. The Musso offers a load area of 1,011litres and Musso XLV with its extra 300mm of bed length, provides a load volume of 1,262litres, almost 25% more than shorter wheelbase Musso.

The powertrain continues with the sturdy 2.2L turbo diesel engine and 6-speed manual or the well-proven AISIN 6-speed automatic transmission.

With SsangYong’s customary, full suite of standard inclusions, the new Musso range continues to offer essential advanced safety features such as: AEB (Autonomous Emergency Braking), FVSW (front Vehicle Start Warning), FCW (Forward Collision Warning), LDW (Lane Departure Warning) and SHB (Smart High Beam).

Musso’s strength and toughness starts with its high-grade steel construction that includes an ultra-high-strength Quad-frame. The rigid body-on-frame design with eight large mounting points contributes to Musso’s low levels of road noise, and quality driving refinement, somewhat unique in the segment.

Due to the popularity of the range-topping Ultimate models along with valuable dealer and customer feedback, the 2021 Musso Ultimate has a new option, the Luxury Pack. This optional pack offers a number of premium features over and above the Ultimate model.
