Styling too soft for a pickup truck

Recent Updates of Ssangyong Musso

Based on the SUV sibling Rexton, the Ssangyong Musso is one of the better pickups trucks out there in the Philippine automobile market. While the stance of the Musso is an intimidating one, the overall styling on the outside is not actually that of pickup. It is rather too plain in our opinion. However, the headlamps with LED DRLs, some chrome treatment, and skid plates do provide the Musso with some character. On the inside though, the story is completely different. The interior on the Ssangyong Musso is one of the best in the segment with features like Nappa leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, eight-inch touch screen infotainment system, and others.

The Ssangyong Musso gets its power from a 2.2-litre four-cylinder diesel engine which makes 181 PS and 420 Nm. The transmission here is a 6-speed automatic. Interestingly, even after being a pickup truck, the Musso misses out on a 4x4 drivetrain. As a whole, the Ssangyong Musso is a great pickup package at Php 1.5 million.

Overview

With the revamped Rexton, Ssangyong showed the world that it has the potential of making SUVs which are rugged and premium at the same time. No wonders the current generation Rexton proved to be a hit for Ssangyong globally. However, what the Philippines market has received is the pickup version of Rexton, the Musso. The Ssangyong Musso replaces the third row of seats with a large cargo bay and comes with a couple of more changes over the Rexton. Available in a standard 4x2 variant, the Musso comes in a total of seven color options – Atlantic Blue, Silky White, Maroon Brown, Indian Red, Marble Grey, Space Black and Fine Silver.

Interior & Features

The interior on the Musso is a direct lift-off from the Rexton, which simply means that the Musso has one of the most premium and rich in cabins among all the pickups. The cabin offers a very nice blend of black with chestnut brown, which makes it feel luxurious everywhere.

The large three-spoke steering wheel and inviting instrument console with large colored MID screen make for a very posh driver’s cockpit. The centre console looks wide thanks to the presence of the large eight-inch touch screen infotainment system alongside the silver finished vertical AC vents on its sides and horizontally laid buttons for dual-zone automatic climate control below it.

What surprises us the most, however, inside the Ssangyong Musso is the level of comfort and convenience features – this pickup is loaded with features to the gills. Apart from the aforementioned features, the Musso also has Nappa leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, electrically adjustable front seats, and rear AC vents. However, there is no sunroof here.

Exterior

As we mentioned before, the Musso is based on the Rexton and is the pickup version of the latter. This directly implies that the Musso shares a lot of design traits with the Rexton. While the stance of the Musso looks large and intimidating, the overall exterior styling is too mild for a duty-oriented pickup truck.

The front of the Musso looks quite simple and boxy but there are the sweptback headlamps which come with projector units and daytime running LEDs within them. The hexagonal grille with a thin chrome lining and Ssangyong logo looks big but might not arrest your attention at first due to its simple layout. The large front bumper with blackened skid plates, however, adds a small amount of macho appeal to the front fascia of the Musso.

The side profile of the Musso also comes with the same inverted wheel arches as well as 18-inch machined alloy wheels as seen on the Rexton. However, post the B-pillar, the third row of the cabin here is replaced by a large bed liner. Also, the addition of big roof rails has added some sportiness. At the rear, like in most of the pickup trucks, the cargo door, as well as the vertical tail lamps on the Musso, are plainly designed.

Ride & Handling

With a double wishbone setup at the front and a five-link coil spring suspension at the rear, the ride quality and handling balance on the Musso feels quite sorted despite the fact that the Musso is quite a heavy pickup based on a ladder-on-frame chassis. The disc brake setup on all four wheels is another measure which shows that Ssangyong has not made any compromise on the mechanical setup either.

Engine & Fuel Consumption

The sole engine on offer with the Ssangyong Musso is a 2.2-litre four-cylinder diesel engine which produces a maximum power of 181 PS and a peak torque of 420 Nm. The engine is coupled with a 6-speed automatic gearbox which transfers the power only to the front wheels, with a 4x4 drivetrain option given a miss here.

Braking & Safety

Unlike the Rexton, the Musso is equipped with only the basic and compulsory safety features like front, side and curtain SRS airbags, ABS with EBD and Brake Assist and a reverse camera with parking sensors.

Verdict

At Php 1.5 million with a plush interior filled with a number of comfort and convenience features, the Ssangyong Musso is one pickup which you will love to be in. However, when the tough gets going, you will definitely feel the absence of a 4x4 drivetrain. Although the engine impresses one with its refinement and power delivery.
