SsangYong has revealed the first teaser images of an all new SUV, which is set to be called the “Torres”.
And no, there’s no collaboration going on between SsangYong and Fernando Torres, although admittedly, that would be rather interesting.
This SUV, SsangYong states, takes its name from the Torres del Paine National Park in Patagonia, (
Well known for its magnificent mountains, glaciers, lakes, and rivers, the name was adopted for the SUV for all the adventure and outdoor-readiness it would imply. However, we are not quite sure customers here are going to make that connection.
Whatever the source for its name may be, the SUV looks set to be quite the looker. Up front, there’s a vertical radiator-style grille for the necessary tough and rugged look. At the rear, the Torres sports a tailgate that reminds us of the Toyota FJ Cruiser.
The Torres is scheduled to go into mass production with pre-order sales commencing in June in South Korea. An all-electric version of the Torres is said to be scheduled for introduction in Europe come late 2023.
