A spokesman at SsangYong has told WardsAuto the Korean automaker plans on entering the U.S. market in the following years.

SsangYong is eying a United States entry on their quest to reach annual sales of 300,000 units by 2016 and at this moment the company is working on a product portfolio which will probably contain the facelifted Korando crossover. This model will likely be sold under a different company name since "SsangYong" isn't really a desirable moniker.

Another model that could make it stateside is the SLV compact crossover which will be introduced sometime in 2015. The SLV has been previewed by the company through the SIV-1 concept and its seven-seat sibling will be showcased next month at Geneva where SsangYong will present the XLV concept.

With Kia and Hyundai on a roll today in the United States, it's hard to say whether a third Korean car manufacturer can fit into an already very competitive automotive market, especially taking into consideration SsangYong doesn't have a dealer network in the states.
