SsangYong website is light on for info, im thinking not.

New Great Wall out (Steed), however only a 2.4l diesel, which would leave it a bit short on power (and only a 5 speed)

Navara is also a 2.4l but has a twin turbo model, (not sure if that becomes a parity problem)

PS2244 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
It seems a few parts of the puzzle are in the process of materialising now for next year

Great Lake Motor Distributor's import both Ssangyong and LDV vehicle's into New Zealand, and we are looking at running the brand new LDV Ute in the Australian Series in Partnership with the Australian distributor, as the all new Ssangyong ute will not debut until early next year.

However, depending on the interest of Ssangyong Korea it may also be possible to homologate the new Actyon Sport ute sometime next year, as the NZ Ssangyong Actyon Sports Series finish's on the 27th March next year, after its fourth and final season.

A Benz conversion from the Triton platform shouldn't be too difficult surely?

Yeah, that's my understanding as well.

I think even Renault may be using the same platform at some point.

If they do, surely it's only a nose and tail clip away from being a Nissan, or a Renault...

Why not race Vito vans and Transits, and call them SuperVans? Think of the generous allocation of advertising space down the side.
