After the Land Rover Defender, the Morgan and the Mercedes G-Class, the SsangYong Rexton, the oldest car in our country that is still new. Time for another clean-up so.
At the end of 2001 presents Ssangyong, the Rexton. In terms of looks, for those days, best modern SUV, but in terms of technique, more of an off-road vehicle: the Rexton is on a seperate ladderchassis. The ladderchassis of the first generation Mercedes ML to be exact and also the engines extract the Koreans at Mercedes-Benz. All in all, not a bad deal and SsangYong can be beautiful piggyback on the success of the Kia Sorento and affordable SUV’s in general. After more than fourteen years, it is fresh, however, from, a three facelifts at regret, but the car is not yet ready for the price lists to disappear.
In 2016 also Rextons to the man to be able to get, it was necessary to make the car meet the Euro 6 regulations. This is the old 155 hp 2.0 diesel was replaced by a copy of 2.2-liters and 178 hp. The torque is 400 Nm, and perhaps its best selling point is the maximum towing weight of 3500 pounds. Optionally there is also a 7-speed automatic will be available, yes, Mercedes Benz.
Question: How long would SsangYong Rexton actually in production should remain to be just such a cult status as the Defender or G-Class?
