Ssangyong Musso Front

This particular Ssangyong Musso came along in 2021, and is a facelift of the previous version which was introduced in 2016.

It's a massive leap forward for the South Korean manufacturer and can more than hold its own with the kings of the pick-up scene, including the Ford Ranger and Toyota Hilux.

The updates have ensured this generation of Musso easily outshines other SSangyong commercial vehicles, such as the Korando Sports.

Highlights of the Ssangyong Musso are listed below.

  • Impressively updated
  • Outstanding payload
  • Refined
  • 7-year warranty, 150,000-mile warranty from new
  • Good off-road

Economy, Towing, and Performance

Ssangyong Musso Saracen

As a large and bulky pick-up truck, economy isn't going to be amazing, but considering its size, the Musso can return circa 30mpg from its 2.2-litre turbodiesel engine.

Overall performance is good, with the Musso being decent off-road thanks to a switchable four-wheel drive system.

Its on-road manners are acceptable too, whilst not being rapid, it can keep up with modern traffic and provides good levels of comfort and refinement.

Towing capability is excellent, with a braked towing weight of between 3,200kg and 3,500kg dependent on specification.

Unbraked towing capability is limited to 750kg, as is the limit with commercial vehicles.

Bodystyles, Payload, and Capacity

Ssangyong Musso Load Area

As for bodystyles, the Ssangyong Musso is available in the typical pick-up truck bodystyle with either a short or long bed option, so buyers can purchase depending on their exact needs.

And this is alongside the Musso having space for five, meaning it can easily double as a family hack when not on commercial duties.

Payload ratings are very good with between 1,065kg and 1,140kg on offer depending on the specific model. And as for capacity, the load dimensions are as follows:

  • Loadbed length (Standard/LWB) = 1,300mm/1,610mm
  • Loadbed depth = 570mm on both versions
  • Loadbed width = 1,570mm on both versions

Interior, Technology, and Safety

Ssangyong Musso Interior

The interior of this particular Ssangyong Musso is miles ahead of previous Ssangyong commercial vehicles.

It's essentially like that of an SUV, with top spec 'Saracen' and 'Rhino' models even featuring a smart digital instrument panel, rather than analogue dials, along with a sharp 9.2-inch touchscreen infotainment screen. Entry-level models get DAB and Bluetooth, along with electric windows and manual air-con.

If budget allows, we'd avoid entry-level trims and at least opt for the 'Rebel' models, as these are the first trims to make use of an 8.0-inch infotainment screen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

As for safety, top spec models get the most up-to-date features such as lane-change collision warning, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert. Each model does get hill-descent control, trailer sway control and a brake assistance system however.


Is the Ssangyong Musso right for me?

If you're in the market for an impressive pick-up truck, that boasts a long warranty from new, a used Ssangyong Musso could be a decent bet, especially if it's less than seven years old.

It's a serious upgrade over older models, and can even hold its own against the sector's standout models.

That said, the Ford Ranger and Toyota Hilux have the legacy and credibility the Musso lacks and continue to be the dominant forces in this sector.
