SsangYong Australia introduces styling upgrades to 2021 Musso 4×4 dual-cab ute. These include a new front end design, new wheel styles and rear LED lighting.

It has new designs of 17-inch and 18-inch alloy wheels, as well as dark treatment to the door handles and mirrors.

Musso is unusual in that it’s offered two load bed lengths and capacities, depending on owners uses and needs. The standard Musso has a load area of 1,011 litres, while the Musso XLV with its extra 300mm of bed length, provides a load volume of 1,262litres.

The powertrain is unchanged, with 2.2-litre turbo-diesel engine and the choice between a six-speed manual and an Aisin six-speed automatic transmission. Musso has high-grade steel construction that includes an ultra-high-strength Quad-frame.

Due to the popularity of the range-topping Ultimate models along with dealer and customer feedback, the 2021 Musso Ultimate has a new option, the Luxury Pack. This has a number of premium features over and above the Ultimate model.

Main features of the Luxury Pack are:
Dual zone automatic climate control.
Power sunroof.
Premium Nappa leather upholstery.
Powered front seats.
Powered driver’s lumbar support.
Heated rear seats.

Lee Kang, Head of the SsangYong Design Centre, said, “The new Musso embodies strength and toughness. The magnificent and imposing grille wraps the horizontal breadth of the front and harmonises with the restrained bumper that subtly supports the solid body.”

Musso ELX: $34,990 (manual), $35,990 (automatic)
Musso Ultimate: $41,290 (automatic)
Note: These are driveaway prices and include all government fees and dealer delivery charges.
