Korean manufacturer SsangYong has unveiled a new entry level variant of its popular Sports Dual Cab aimed at tradesman looking for a tough no-nonsense workhorse ute at a really low price. The SsangYong Sports Dual Cab Tradie boasts a value-for-money price tag of just $24,990 for the 4×2 five-speed manual powered by the eco-friendly common rail, 2.0-litre, turbo diesel engine.

2008 SsangYong-12008 SsangYong-2Ssangyong says this makes it the best priced dual cab diesel on the market.
To borrow, and bend, a famous phrase the SsangYong Tradie ‘will be available in any colour so long as it is white’ and will be equipped with steel wheels and a front disc/rear drum brake set-up. SsangYong spokesperson Kylie Claude says that while the Tradie is a low price workhorse it still comes with a swag of standard features including air-conditioning, power windows, remote locking and dual SRS airbags at no extra cost.

It utilises a diesel, 2.0-litre, four-cylinder, common rail, turbo engine generating maximum power of 104kW at 4000rpm and maximum torque of 310Nm at 1800rpm, making it ideal as a tough workhorse or a smooth and quiet everyday drive.
As well as its low overall purchase price the Tradie also boasts a low fuel consumption of 8.1L/100km on the combined ADR cycle ensuring the fuel pump price shock is kept to a minimum. The Sports Dual Cab Tradie also features cloth trim and a no nonsense character while a strong 750kg payload and a standard tray liner making it the ideal business partner for tradesman as well as in mining, construction, forestry or on the farm.
The Tradie will also be available as a 4×4 manual priced at just $27,990, well below the price of many other diesel 4×4 dual cabs on the market.

According to SsangYong Motors Australasia managing director, Russell Burling, the Sports Dual Cab Tradie answers a strong demand from tradesmen, fleet operators and farmers seeking an economical diesel twin cab that doesn’t compromise on safety or performance.
“Clearly there is a demand for a vehicle like this that has less of the creature comforts and a lower price for those seeking a more basic and less luxurious vehicle,” said Mr Burling.
“The Tradie proves that you don’t have to compromise comfort or safety in a basic dual cab ute for under $25,000,” he added.
