SsangYong Motor UK is delighted to reveal revised Musso range, with the addition of the Saracen+ variant. The multi award-winning Musso is available in four specifications – EX, Rebel and Saracen remain available in the standard bed length, and the new Saracen+ in a longer length bed.
The Musso long bed Saracen+ uses the same chassis and platform as its regular double cab variants however the new-spec Saracen+ model features an additional 12-inches in bed length, increasing volume capacity in the load area. Plastic lined and with a sturdy rear tailgate, the load area is capable of hauling greater loads whilst the double cab’s spacious interior can still seat five adults in comfort.
As well the extra 12-inches in length, its exterior styling has been upgraded with black finished door mirrors, beltline and tailgate finisher. More dramatically, SsangYong has added new, stylish, black 18” alloy wheels and 255/60 tyres increasing its road presence.
Underneath its bold exterior, all Musso variants are powered by an e-XDi220 engine, delivering 202ps at 3,800rpm and maximum torque of 441Nm at 1,600 to 2,600rpm combined with either a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission. This highly efficient, quiet, and proven engine delivers progressive acceleration from a standing start, and strong low-end torque, typical of all SsangYong power units. A new addition to the Musso Saracen+ and upgrade in line with the rest of the range is the addition of double wishbone suspension, and dual coil springs, ensuring impressive towing and payload capabilities – Musso is the only truck to legally tow 3.5-tonnes and carry more than 1-tonne simultaneously.
