Malaysia’s Ssangyong importers Competitive Supreme Sdn Bhd will be launching an updated version to it’s flagship SUV, the Ssangyong Rexton II on the 15th of August this year. I previously blogged about the Ssangyong Rexton II after it made it’s South Korean debut earlier this year in March. The Ssangyong Rexton II still has much of it’s Mercedes Benz DNA, sporting a 2.7 litre common-rail turbodiesel engine developed together with Mercedes Benz mated with gearboxes from the German marque as well.
The Rexton II will be assembled by Automotive Manufacturers (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd, a unit of DRB-Hicom Berhad. Ssangyong will be switching to CKD only for the Rexton after it’s fully imported CBU models are sold out. There are only a few left, so you know what to do if you want a CBU Rexton. No prices yet, but we’ll know later this month.
