Mercedes-Benz has just revealed its first luxury pickup truck, and it has literally broken the internet courtesy it’s stylishly rugged design and exceptionally powerful engine all coming under the trusted and envied name of Mercedes.
The truck’s plans were first revealed in March, 2015 but the actual design has been disclosed just now. Mercedes ( brought forward two versions of the truck, called the X-class, at a Mercedes event in Stockholm, Sweden on Tuesday. You can watch the whole event in the video below. )
The first model which is a green truck is made for off-road and heavy duty stuff. The other white truck is made to be more of a high-end luxury model with a gorgeous wooden interior.
Both of the models are expected to be available in the market next year in Europe, Africa, South America and Australia. The release dates in the United States are yet to be released.
Customers will be given the option to choose from between the interior features, such as high-end materials and entertainment technologies. This amazing concept will boast a powerful six-cylinder V6 diesel engine and a full-time all-wheel-drive.
The pickup will come with coil springs for its rear suspension, similar to what Ram has been using in the recent years. This allows the truck to provide a better ride than the traditional leaf springs vehicles while allowing it to have a payload capacity of more than 2,000 lbs and a towing capacity of 7,000 lbs.
Mercedes revealed that the X-Class would be created in collaboration with Renault-Nissan Alliance, utilising the Nissan plant in Barcelona, Spain and the Renault plant in Cordoba, Argentina. And considering the ever so growing market of luxury pickup trucks around the world, a truck of this quality with a Mercedes badge is sure to make great headways in the market.
