SsangYong XLV Concept
SsangYong has never sold cars in the US.
But that might change soon. Since they have recently announced their entry in our market, under another name.
This could be as soon as next year. And the name has not been released yet. (But anything will be better than SsangYong…)
So this new concept might actually give us an idea of what they are thinking of bringing over here.
(As their current line up is pretty old.)
Do we need another brand in the US? One that specializes in SUVs.
(This is pretty much what Isuzu was doing)
Or could this be something different? Is it too weird?
What do you think???

We certainly don't need this brand, but I kinda like the design. It could pass as a rather boring modern-day Saturn, had they not been raped of their individuality and slaughtered of course.
An SUV/CUV lineup isn't as crazy as it sounded when Isuzu did it a few years ago. It could work with the right products and features as North America is CUV crazy. Isuzu's problem is that all of their vehicles were truck based (and not their own products). If you have a healthy mix of truck based SUVs and car based CUVs, it could take advantage of the niche and have the potential to do very well.
