So far, in spy shots, the restyled Rexton Sports pickup has been hidden under a protective film. Images of a prettier model without disguise appeared on the Mocar YouTube channel.

Apparently, the updated pickup was “caught” at the SsangYong plant. An elongated pickup truck, known in Korea as the Rexton Sports Khan, was captured in the frame. The pickup has got a massive grille with large horizontal stripes (previously they were replaced by vertical dies). The front bumper has been redesigned with vertical DRLs.

Another notable detail on the front is the Khan lettering. We will remind, in earlier spy shots were captured more affordable versions of a pickup with round “foglights”. How this restyling affected the size of the pickup is not known.

“Pre-reform” “short” model in length reached 5095 mm with a wheelbase of 3.1 meters. Clearance – 21.5 centimeters. Khan is larger: length – 5405 mm, wheelbase – 3210 mm, ground clearance – 203 mm. The cargo platform of a conventional pickup is 1.3 meters, an extended one – just over 1.6 meters.

The interior of the updated pickup may receive new trim materials, a redesigned steering wheel, improved multimedia and digital dashboard.

Perhaps the pickup will get adaptive cruise control, like the Rexton SUV. The engine range of the novelty is likely to include a 2.2-liter turbodiesel, whose output will increase from 187 to 202 hp. The updated SUV also received an 8АКПП. Whether the pickup will get the new transmission is not a fact. The former Rexton Sports was content with a six-speed “automatic” and manual transmission with the same number of steps. Khan had 6-speed automatic transmission in his arsenal. The SUV was originally equipped with a seven-speed automatic transmission.

Pickup trucks can be rear-wheel drive or full. Restyled Rexton Sports and Khan may debut in the near future. In their home country, pickups show the best sales among other models of the brand.

In the meantime, it became known when the new generation Isuzu D-Max pickup will debut on the Russian market. After the upgrade, the car will increase in size and its body will become much more rigid.
