Korean car maker SsangYong unveiled the production version of the SUT-1 pickup truck in Frankfurt.

Exterior design of the SUT-1 remains pretty very similar to the astonishing concept car revealed in Geneva earlier this year, and looks very muscular and versatile. The car features SsangYong’s new design philosophy which is clear in the bird-wing shaped radiator grille and headlamp silhouette. The SUT-1 reminds us, to some extent, of the old Chevy Avalanche.

This pickup has a five-seat cabin and a large 2m2 deck. What’s more, the company promises cabin comfort and luxury of a premium SUV for this robust pickup truck.

That’s why it comes with loads of equipments, including sunroof, RDS & Bluetooth audio, rear view camera, hinge sprung tailgate and a trip computer. Safety equipment hasn’t been forgotten either, with functions such as ESP and dual airbags fitted to make SUT-1 a genuine alternative to a conventional 4×4.

In terms of powertrains, the SUT has a 2.0 Active Diesel Engine developing 155 ps and 360 Nm of torque, 190 of which available at only 1000 rpm. This engine is fully compatible with Euro 5 standards.
