2017 Ssangyong Musso – Significant Changes:

A number of significant changes have been made to the exterior of the pickup truck. The grille at the front has new mesh designs, with thinner wires than before and it is bordered by chrome, which gives the truck a very attractive look. The headlights and the windscreen wipers will be automatic. The interior design is also quite different from the previous model. The dashboard has been all redesigned. The passenger seats are covered in leather. A 7.0- inch touch screen has also been added on the inside with an additional feature allowing the customers to use a Bluetooth connection and/or connect their iPods to the system if they like. A reversing camera is also present, making the drive very safe.

It might be interesting for some people to look at but it gets confusing sometimes. They are so many controls and switches here and there. The driver and the passengers might eventually get used to this layout, but it would have been better to have a more thoughtful layout.

2017 Ssangyong Musso – Powertrain:

The powertrain of the new model has also been upgraded. It will have a 2.2-liter turbocharged diesel engine, with four cylinders. It will generate 175 horsepower. The engine is paired with the six-speed automatic transmission.

The customers can also have their truck in a manual if they would like. The manual configuration will give a better mileage/ fuel economy than the automatic one. The 2017 Ssangyong Musso is also likely to produce great accelerations, going up to 60 mph in just about eleven seconds. The top speed recorded is 108 mph. The maximum towing capability recorded is 3000 kg and the maximum payload it can carry is 1075 kg.

2017 Ssangyong Musso – Warranty and Price:

The 2017 Ssangyong Musso also provides the customers with a warranty for the pickup truck and none of the other automobile companies can compete with it. The bushes and suspension joints of the truck and the shock absorbers present also come under the warranty offered by the company, which does not expire until 5 years.

The truck may not be very good for your off the road adventures in the difficult conditions, but it is a very cheap truck which will provide you with all the basic features you would need!

The 2017 Ssangyong Musso is available at a very reasonable price from $19,000. It is cheap and efficient at the same time. There are not many trucks available in the US market, which would be cheap and have all the great features simultaneously. It is true that the previous model of the Ssangyong Musso that stopped coming in 2005, did not make it big in the market but this time, it has come completely redesigned and upgraded and is nothing like the previous model.
