SSANGYONG MUSSO PICKS-UP 4X4 MAGAZINE’S “BEST VALUE” AND “BEST INDIVIDUAL MODEL” AWARDS FOR 2021
The SsangYong Musso short-bed pick-up has recently won 4×4 Magazine’s “Best Value” pick-up award for the third year in a row – and this year its long-bedded big brother the Musso Grand scoops the added accolade of “Best Individual Model”.
On Musso’s win of “Best Value” pick-up, Alan Kidd, editor at 4×4 Magazine, said; “The pick-up market is laden with good-value trucks but none of them can match Musso for its combination of low purchase price, high specifications and stout towing and carrying abilities.”
“The Musso’s interior finds the holy grail by being the most SUV-like of any pick-up truck and it is laden with kit. It is much more than a cheap truck – and for the third year in a row, it’s the best in the business in terms of value for money.”
The Musso pick-up, which arrived in the UK in 2018, shares its body-on-frame construction to give an extremely strong vehicle that delivers excellent off-road driving performance and safety from its quad-frame and four-wheel-drive system.
Designed to carry passengers in comfort and transport loads securely, the SUV-based Musso combines a five-seat crew-cab body style with a workman-like load deck that will take a full-sized Euro pallet. Importantly, it also carries a payload of over 1-tonne and tows trailers of up to 3.5 tonnes concurrently to give the highest total load capacity in the segment. The combination of utility pick-up and SUV means Musso offers the perfect blend of functionality, practicality, performance and high specification comfort to the driver and family or workmates. These same qualities are now available in a long wheel-base variant in the guise of the Musso Grand, which adds an additional 300mm to its bed length.
About the Musso Grand, named as 4×4 Magazine’s “Best Individual Model”, Alan Kidd, added; “The Musso short-bed has held the “Best Value” title for three years, but the Grand long-bed gives it something new. With a longer wheelbase, it has a massively enhanced load bay to enhance its already formidable practicality.”
Musso is one of the toughest, all-round value for money pick-ups on the market – it even boasts a sector leading 5-year/150,000-mile warranty.”
