SsangYong Musso 2019 pricing and specs confirmed


Pricing and specifications for the SsangYong Musso 2019 model range have been announced, with the SUV-based dual-cab ute offering aggressive pricing and class-leading safety technology for the money.

The new Musso will compete with affordable utes like the Mitsubishi Triton and Nissan Navara, but will also square off against the Great Wall Steed and LDV T60. It’s the only Korean ute on sale at the moment.

The Musso range will consist of three grades, all of which will be all-wheel drive, and all of which will be powered by a 2.2-litre turbo-diesel engine with 133kW of power and 400Nm of torque. Fuel use is rated at 9.7 litres per 100 kilometres for the manual, and 10.9L/100km for the auto, which is high in terms of claimed figures.

All models have six airbags. All models have six airbags.

In the entry-level EX trim level, the Musso will be available with the choice of a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic, and all grades come with a limited-slip differential. The part-time 4WD system has a low-range transfer case with 2H, 4H and 4L modes choosable on all grades.

Towing capacity is rated at 750kg for an unbraked trailer, and 3000kg for a braked trailer - but SsangYong Australia says it is working to get this increased to 3500kg, to match the best in the business. The gross combination mass (GCM) for Musso models is huge at 6750kg.

The EX manual lists at just $30,490 drive-away (SsangYong isn’t running regular list pricing with on-road costs - so, what you see is what you’ll pay). The EX auto is $32,490.

Standard equipment on EX variants includes standard auto emergency braking (AEB) and forward collision warning (FCW), which many much more expensive utes don’t offer, even optionally on high-grade versions.

It also comes with a Bluetooth-capable media system, fabric seat trim, tilt/reach steering adjustment, cruise control, electric windows, air-conditioning, a 12-volt outlet in the tray and a full-size spare wheel.

All models have six airbags, but because the EX models miss out on a media screen, they don’t come with a standard reversing camera.

The next model up the range is the ELX, which is only available with an automatic transmission and adds niceties such as 18-inch alloy wheels, an 8.0-inch media screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and takes the safety game even further with blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, plus lane-change assist and a rear-view camera. ELX models list at $35,990 driveaway.

Sweetening the deal is SsangYong’s offer of a seven-year/unlimited kilometre warranty program. Sweetening the deal is SsangYong’s offer of a seven-year/unlimited kilometre warranty program.

The flagship Ultimate model is again auto-only, and lists at $39,990. It adds heated and cooled leather seats, a sunroof, 20-inch alloy wheels and a 360-degree surround view camera system.

Sweetening the deal is SsangYong’s offer of a seven-year/unlimited kilometre warranty program, plus seven-year roadside assist cover, and a seven-year capped price servicing plan.
