SsangYong Motor UK has revamped its Musso pick-up truck range with an all-new Saracen+ variant.
Saracen+ introduces a longer bed length to the Musso family with an additional 12 inches in bed length, expanding the volume capacity in the load area.
Designed with practicality in mind, the plastic-lined load area, equipped with a sturdy rear tailgate, enhances its capability to carry larger loads, while the double cab's interior remains the same.
In addition to the extended bed length, the exterior styling of the Saracen+ has undergone an upgrade with black finished door mirrors, beltline, and tailgate. New black 18-inch alloy wheels with 255/60 tyres are also specified.
Power remains unchanged with the same e-XDi220 engine delivering 202hp at 3,800rpm and maximum torque of 441Nm at 1,600 to 2,600rpm. The engine is paired with either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission.
SsangYong Musso Saracen+ pick-ups use double wishbone suspension and dual coil springs. Setting it apart, is its ability to tow 3.5-tonnes while carrying more than 1-tonne simultaneously.
The Musso is a competitor to the likes of the Ford Ranger and Isuzu D-Max Utility range.
The SsangYong Musso range now includes the following trims:
