Ssangyong Korando/TagAZ Tager (ТагАЗ Тагер) (KJ). 1996–2014 (prod. n/a). 3-door UV, 3-door convertible UV, 5-door UV. F/R, F/A, 1998, 2295 cm³ petrol, 2607 cm³ diesel (I4 DOHC), 2299 cm³ diesel (I4 OHC), 2874 cm³ diesel (I5 OHC), 3199 cm³ (I6 DOHC). All-new Korando, styled by British designer Ken Greenley, with a neoclassical design blending modern aspects (a smoother front end) with a traditional Jeep silhouette. Retained ladder-frame chassis. Some Mercedes-Benz-licensed engines, shared with Ssangyong Musso. Taillamps and external mirrors altered in 1998. Exported with the Daewoo marque to some countries when that company controlled Ssangyong. Discontinued in Korea in 2005 as domestic buyers preferred monocoque SUVs over body-on-frame models, and replaced by Actyon. TagAZ continued production and added a five-door model, with longer wheelbase and overall length, and a 2·6 turbodiesel. Good ride on-road, but some engines lacking in torque to tackle things off-road.
