Since 1993, the SsangYong Musso is both a mid-sized SUV and pickup truck produced by the South Korean automaker SsangYong. However, if your Musso ends up experiencing a problem and needs some TLC, having a SsangYong Musso service manual may help get the job done a bit faster.
The Musso SUV was a result of a collaboration between SsangYong and Daimler-Benz. The vehicle's design was styled by Ken Greenley. Moreover, the car has a double cab pickup version called Musso Sports. The SUV was produced from 1993 to 2005, and the pickup was manufactured from 2002 to 2005.
First manufactured in 1993, the Musso SUV was available with either a petrol 2.8 and 3.2 L 6-cylinder inline Mercedes-Benz M104 engine, a Mercedes-Benz M111 engine 2.3 L inline 4-cylinder petrol engine, or a 2.3 L 4-cylinder and 2.9 L 4-cylinder diesel engines -- Mercedes-Benz OM601 and OM602 -- with natural aspiration or turbo intercooler. It was also known for its off-road capabilities; in October 1994, the MUSSO won the Rallye des Pharaons for 4WD vehicles. A facelifted version was released in 1998.
The Musso seated up to five individuals and its wheels are fit for off-road driving. The SsangYong Musso Sports, a pickup variant of the Mussi was released in the years that followed. As SsangYong had a technology-sharing agreement with Mercedes-Benz, the decision was made to sell the Musso as a badge-engineered Mercedes-Benz model in a select few markets. This permitted SsangYong to gain footholds in new markets without having to build their own global infrastructure while all along, giving Mercedes a competitor in the then-booming SUV market.
Produced from 2002 to 2005, the P100 series Musso Sports is a dual cab pickup truck variant of the Musso SUV produced. It features a Mercedes-Benz designed gearbox, engine, and it seats five. Later models were given a turbo diesel option as well as others like a canopy, 'fins,' extra tail lights, chrome trim, and an extra row of wheels to hold more weight.
The Q200 series Musso was a pickup truck which was debuted to the global market at Geneva Motor Show in 2018. The car featured SsangYong's new body-on-frame platform using Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS), which it shared with the second-generation of SsangYong Rexton.
The Rexton is offered with a choice of a 225 hp 2.0 L e-XGDI 200T petrol turbo engine or 181 hp 2.2 L e-XDI 220 diesel engine, which it shared with the Rexton and was offered in 2WD or part-time 4WD. It was equipped with AISIN 6-speed automatic transmission or 6-speed manual transmission. The Musso pickup also provided Five-link suspension with optional Locking differential (LD). So, remember if you ever need help servicing your Musso, having a SsangYong Musso repair manual can make the job go smoother.
