Mercedes-Benz X Class pickup truck is finally revealed. After a successful concept reveals, Mercedes-Benz has finally brought their first pickup truck to the pickup line and ready for the world’s car market. The concept of the X Class model was revealed all the way back in October of 2016 to great enthusiasm of the car enthusiasts. Now the time has come that we can finally enjoy a luxury pickup truck with the style and performance of this premium brand. This car is already popular in the UAE. You can sell your car and order a Mercedes-Benz X class.
Even though it is not confirmed if the X Class pickup truck will make its appearance in the USA car market, people are still hoping that they will do so. It was previously reported that the Mercedes-Benz X Class pickup truck will not come to North America, but it was later revealed that there is a chance that Mercedes will bring this truck over there.
Mercedes-Benz X Class Competition
If the Mercedes-Benz X Class pickup truck does come to the USA, it will have direct competition with Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon, Honda Ridgeline, Toyota Tacoma and the much awaited Ford Ranger that is expected to reach the USA car market very soon. The US definitely has a market for luxury pickup trucks, especially full-size pickup trucks. However, this new pickup truck by Mercedes will be falling in the mid-size pickup truck category, the brand is not sure if it will fit in the car market in the USA, despite its dashing good looks.
Mercedes-Benz X Class Pickup Truck Specifications
The Mercedes-Benz X Class pickup truck is coming with four different engine options. Two of those engines are going to be V4 diesel engines and one engine is going to be a V6 diesel engine, while there is also going to be an option of a V4 gas engine as well.
The Mercedes-Benz X Class pickup truck will come in rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive and if you get the chance to purchase this pickup truck, then you will have the option to pick this truck with a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed automatic transmission that is much more in-keeping with the Mercedes-Benz style.
When it is launched, this first pickup truck by Mercedes-Benz will come with a switchable 4Matic all-wheel drive with a low-range gearbox. However, this luxury brand has plans to add a permanent all-wheel drive system to this vehicle later as well.
What to Expect From Mercedes-Benz X Class Model?
The performance of the X Class model is expected to be great on the road and off the road as well. The X-Class model is promised to be better on the road than other pickup trucks that you see in the market. Mercedes-Benz claims that the Mercedes-Benz X Class pickup truck is dynamic enough to be on par with the other passenger vehicles in the market right now.
Since the brand is offering this pickup truck with safety technology such as Autonomous Emergency Braking System and Lane Keep Assist, it is expected to be a great ride for anyone lucky enough to purchase it. The vehicle is based off the Nissan Navarra, but the style and the look of the vehicle is completely in keeping with the design and style ideology of this luxury brand. In fact, the front fascia of the Mercedes-Benz X Class pickup truck looks pretty identical to the GLS SUV that has rocked the luxury SUV market.
However, the Mercedes-Benz X Class pickup truck gets plenty of new design touches that we have not seen before. The switchgear is still the same as we see in the other vehicles by this brand and so is the 8.3-inch Command touchscreen. The Mercedes-Benz X Class pickup truck is expected to be offered in three trim levels i.e. Pure (a work truck), Progressive (a luxury pickup truck) and Power (a stylish version). No one knows when it will reach the USA market, but we have our fingers crossed.
