2014 Ssangyong Korando Sports Pickup First Look

Is It a Weird-Looking Truck or an SUV Alternative?

Allyson HarwoodJan 27, 2014
We can't help being fascinated by pickup trucks around the world, and Ssangyong's Korando Sports has caught our eye. The manufacturer introduced it about a year ago. The idea was an interesting one: Combine the suspension, refined engine, and people-friendly cabin of a car, the room of a crew cab (seating for five), and the toughness of a truck. This reminds us of past attempts to blend a truck and SUVs in the USA -- like the Avalanche and the Explorer Sport Trac.
Standard features are more value-minded in this truck than in trucks in the U.S.: 16-inch alloy wheels, tinted glass, air-conditioning, leather steering wheel, key-fob-controlled locks, Kenwood MP3/CD player with USB/aux port, and Bluetooth connectivity. And for 2014, it gets speed-sensitive power steering. Step up from the SX to the EX, and you get 18-inch alloys, leather seats with front seat heaters, power driver's seat, heated power (and power-folding) side mirrors, and rear parking sensors. A six-speed automatic transmission and cruise control are options.
This truck comes with three tops: the Top-Up, a hinged fiberglass cover; the Classic, a shell with a rear brake light, interior light, side opening glass, and fixed front glass; and Elegance, which adds bars to the Classic a heated rear window, sliding front glass, LED interior light, central locking, pop-out windows, and roof. This truck probably won't come to America, but it's certainly an interesting idea.
