If you have never heard of a luxury class pickup before, it’s real, and the automaker rolling these out is unexpectedly Mercedes-Benz! Yeah, it’s true, the new X-class luxury pickup is slated to hit the auto market in 2017. Unfortunately, for those in North America, it won’t be available right away, as Mercedes is prioritizing Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Argentina, and South Africa first.
Working with Renault-Nissan, Mercedes-Benz have released pictures of what the new X-class will look like, and it is impressive. While it is a ‘luxury’ vehicle, made by Mercedes-Benz, the pickup is being designed to be a load-hauling workhorse, a family vehicle, and an attractive pickup truck that is geared for off-road terrain.
To see is to believe, and written descriptions of the appearance of this luxury pickup truck does it no justice. With a V6 diesel engine and permanent all-wheel drive, there is much more to discover about the characteristic of the X-Class pickup truck by Mercedes.
