    ssangyong musso what years are indirect injection Diesel ????

    Hi All, I have heard some good stuff about the Musso, I was wondering if anyone knows what years the musso runs with indirect injection, as Im not keen on buying a common rail injection ute, Im fairly sure 2006 is indirect injection, but i'm not sure about the later models, and cant seam to find any information on the type of injection they use after 2006. Im currently running a Kia Pregio on 30%/70% Diesel/wvo mix(15000km so far) and only had filter blocks due to not being selective enough about the oil I used, Cheers

    Re: ssangyong musso what years are indirect injection Diesel ????

    Hi Miabellabrian,

    The Musso never had a DI engine in Australia.
    There were several different engines available in the earlier station wagon model including a 2.3 and 3.2 Mercedes petrol engine as well as the 2.3 litre 4 cylinder and 2.9 litre 5 cylinder naturally aspirated Diesel engines.
    I have never seen a Musso in Australia with the 2.3 diesel and very few with the 2.3 petrol engine.
    The 3.2 petrol engine and the 2.9 Diesel seemed to be about equally popular at that time.

    After Daewoo took over manufacture the body changed shape slightly and a turbo was installed on the 2.9 litre Diesel which made it's performance now adequate.

    Musso's then disappeared from the local Australian market for a few years and when they were re-introduced in around 2004 they were only available in the dual cab "Musso Sport pik-up"
    At that time they were only available with the 2.9 litre IDI Mercedes OM 602 5 cylinder turbo diesel engine. This engine has the reputation for being one of the most reliable engines ever produced.
    There is a possibility that a few of these Dual Cabs did "slip through" with a the 3.2 petrol engine installed but I have never seen one.
    Musso finished being imported into Australia in 2006, however some were sold as 2007 models.

    I bought my Musso New in April 2006. It is an Automatic 2WD with 282000km up- all on biodiesel. I can not fault the mechanics of the car.

    Thanks for your reply, I have seen 2010, and 2013 Mussos for sale on Carsales, even New ones available, so there are some around later than 2006, I just wanted to find out more information about the later model engines 2006-2014. Cheers Brian

    As I said in my previous post, the Musso was not sold new later than 2007 in Australia, and there were not many 2007's.
    These "2007" models would have arrived in Australia in late 2006/ early 2007 and were probably actually built in 2005 (My 2006 Musso has a build date in Korea of 2005) because production of the Musso ceased in Korea after 2005.
    In Australia the year of a new imported car is determined by the date stamped in it's Australian compliance plate which is attached after it has arrived in Australia and not the year it was built
    The Musso did continue to be assembled in other countries and is still being built in Iran.

    I would be interested to see the links to a 2010 and 2013 Musso for sale.
    Red Book Valuation lists the years of Ssangyong Musso being sold in Australia as 1996, 1997, 1998, 2004, 2005, 2006.
    Red Book Valuations lists the years of sales for Daewoo Musso in Australia as being 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001 2002


    Ssangyong Musso Dual Cab.....................Ssangyong Musso wagon.....................Daewoo Musso wagon

    Then they changed to just selling the Ssangyon Actyon Dual Cab sports utility that did have a 2 litre DI turbo diesel and is still currently for sale in Australia.
    The Actyon Sport Dual cab never came with an IDI diesel engine

    Yees you have just answered my question, i was looking at the ACTYON AND NOT THE MUSSO, that is the problem with looking at carsales after midnight !! And you said the ACTYON never came with IDI. So my big question now are there any later model cars available with IDI or has that completely died out ??

    As far as I am aware, the Musso was the last IDI sold new in Australia in any quantity.
    If I am not mistaken, Tata did sell diesel suv's/ utes in the early 2000's with a PSA (Peugeot) IDI turbo diesel engine but my mind is a bit foggy about that and in any case there were not many.

    As smithw said, the Rexton changed engines in 2004.
    Earlier Rexton's used the same mechanics as the Musso, the 2.9 IDI Mercedes turbo diesel and the 3.2 Mercedes petrol engine
    The Rexton was not sold prior to 2004 or possibly 2003 in Australia, when Ssangyong was re-introduced into Australia.

    At the time of reentering to the Australian market, Ssangyong Australia knew a new Rexton Model with the 2.7 DI Mercedes diesel engine was being introduced shortly and did not import any Rexton's with the 2.9 IDI engine "on spec" and waited until the 2.7 Rexton was ready for sale before ordering them into Australia in numbers.
    My understanding is that the 2.9 IDI Rexton turbo diesel was only imported when actually order by a customer.
    The results being very few Rexton 2.9 IDI Mercedes turbo diesels were imported into Australia and none after 2004.

    Most 2004 diesels are the 2.7 DI mercedes turbo diesel, but there are some 2004 2.9 turbo diesels available- not many, most are the 2.7 DI diesel.
    I have also seen a few 2003 Rexton 2.9 diesels for sale, but not many

    Also be sure to call and have a sales person go and actually verify the installed engine is a 2.9, I have found a number of 2004 Rextons advertised as having the 2.9 and when I looked at the photos or called a Sales person to check find it is a 2.7

    It is easy to tell one from the other if there are pictures as shown here-.


    2004 2.9 IDI Rexton Diesel Engine.................2004 2.7 DI Rexton Diesel Engine


    PS- here is one for sale in Victoria listed as a 2.7 and it is actually a 2.9- just what you are looking for- maybe
    Here is the engine in the ad- a 2.9!
