Here’s Mercedes-Benz’s New Stylish X-Class Pick-Up Truck
Mercedes-Benz has officially unveiled its new sleek and stylish premium pick-up truck.
Called the X-Class, the midsize truck features permanent all-wheel drive and high-torque V6 engines, with plans to hit the European and South American markets in late 2017.
At the moment, no US release date has been set.
“With the Mercedes-Benz pickup we will close one of the last gaps in our portfolio,” said Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche in a press statement. “The X-Class will set new standards in a growing segment.”
There will be two variations of the X-Class, with one geared towards off-road use and the other vehicle focusing on premium features. However, both versions of the truck look like sports cars and not the typical pick-up trucks you see driving around town.
With the X-Class, Mercedes is hoping to bridge the gap between urban and city driving by providing a truck for both “private and commercial use.”
But, the X-Class still comes equipped with the power many look for when buying a truck to the tune of a payload capacity of more than 1.1 ton and a towing capacity of around 3.5 tons.
