Another manual option bites the dust in Australia
The updated SsangYong Musso is due in Australia this year, but it will lose its manual transmission option.
Government approval documents viewed by CarExpert show the entire updated Musso range will come with a six-speed automatic transmission.
A SsangYong Australia spokesperson confirmed the move, adding that more details will be available close to its launch in the fourth quarter of 2023.
The current entry-level SsangYong Musso ELX is available with a six-speed manual transmission as standard in both regular- and extended-wheelbase (XLV) body styles. The six-speed automatic is a $2000 option.
The approval documents still list a power output of 133kW, indicating the Australian-market Musso will stick with the existing 133kW/400Nm 2.2-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine.
South Korean-market versions of the ute received an engine tune with 150kW and 441Nm last year, al
