The SsangYong Musso

This vehicle was first produced in 1995 the car featued a Mercedes petrol engine or a diesel engine.
The diesel engine is an internal combustion engine that uses compression ignition, in which fuel ignites as it is injected into air in the combustion chamber that has been compressed to temperatures high enough to cause ignition.

By contrast, gasoline engines utilize the Otto cycle in which fuel and air are typically mixed before entering the combustion chamber and ignited by a spark plug, making compression ignition undesirable (engine knocking).

The engine operates using the Diesel cycle named after German engineer Rudolf Diesel, who invented it in 1892 based on the hot bulb engine and for which he received a patent on February 23, 1893. Diesel intended the engine to use a variety of fuels including coal dust and peanut oil. He demonstrated it at the 1900 Exposition Universelle (World’s Fair) using peanut oil.

The SsangYong Actyon is a direct replacement for the SsangYong Musso. The Actyon comes in two forms:

  • The Coupe Sports (Actyon)
  • The Sports Utility Truck (Actyon Sports)


Both Models are available in a few different guises, with both 2WD and 4WD systems on offer as well as the choice of a third generation common rail VGT turbo diesel engine or a 2.3 litre overhead cam four-cylinder petrol engine. Replacing the original Musso, the Actyon Sports Utility has a more fuel efficient European designed Engine.

The European sourced diesel engine produces 104kW of power at 4000 rpm and 310 Nm of torque at 2700rpm. The 2.3 litre petrol engine puts out around 110kW at 5500rpm ad 214 Nm at 4500rpm.

The SsangYong Korando was a small 3-door 4×4 SUV produced from 1997 to 1999. It featured a choice of 2.3 L and 3.0 L gasoline engines or 2.9 L diesel engine, all produced on license of Mercedes-Benz.

The SsangYong Rodius (sold in some regions as the Stavic) is a large MPV/SUV released in early 2004. The engines are the Mercedes-Benz licenced 3.2 L 6-cylinder petrol engine (162kW & 309Nm) and the 2.7 L 5-cylinder common rail diesel engine (121kW & 342Nm).

Common rail direct fuel injection is a modern variant of direct injection system for diesel engines. It features a high-pressure (1000+ bar) fuel rail feeding individual solenoid valves, as opposed to low-pressure fuel pump feeding pump nozzles or high-pressure fuel line to mechanical valves controlled by cams on the camshaft. Third generation common rail diesels now feature piezoelectric injectors for even greater accuracy, with fuel pressures up to 180 MPascal / 1800 bar.

The SsangYong Kyron is a compact ‘soft-roader’ SUV, it has a 104kW/310Nm diesel engine, with Mercedes-Benz engine parts.

In 2007, the robust XDi270 diesel engine was available on the Kyron increasing the performance to 121kW/340Nm. Both the XDi200 and XDi270 uses the 3rd-generation Common Rail technology.

The SsangYong Rexton is a sport utility vehicle based on the last Mercedes-Benz M-Class. The car is available only with four-wheel drive and three engines: a 2.7 liter 121kW/342Nm common rail diesel, a 2.9 liter diesel and a 3.2 liter 162kW/310Nm petrol engine, all manufactured in license of Mercedes-Benz.
