Ssangyong's CEO has indicated that the SUV-heavy automaker could enter the US market by late 2019, although parent company Mahindra contradicts that claim.

Every time we see a display from SsangYong, Korea's fourth-largest automaker, we're startled at the pace with which it is upping its game.

However, Korean automaker Ssangyong is a name that doesn't roll off the tongue for American consumers – it's practically unknown.
