Small manufacturer of Korean cars that was at one point owned by Daewoo but is currently independent. Ssangyong, meaning "Twin Dragons" produces the ultra-luxurious Chairman Sedan, based on the Mercedes E Class, the uniquely styled Rexton SUV, the ubiquitious Musso, and the jeep like Korando. The company does not market in the US but has sales in Europe and Asia.
