Costs & verdict
Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is
The cheapest Ssangyong Musso – in EX trim – looks startlingly good value against its rivals. However, unless you are planning on using your pickup solely as a working vehicle, we recommend raising your selection to Rebel. This comes with a lot more kit, including 18in wheels, roof bars, side steps, a rear camera, heated and cooled front seats, a heated steering wheel and an 8.0in infotainment system (see Interior).
The range-topping Saracen is still surprisingly good value and adds leather seats (versus the faux leather ones in the Rebel), cruise control, heated rear seats and a front skid plate. Rhino sits at the top of the range, featuring the longer bed and rear privacy glass, but replacing the 18in wheels with 17in.
