The Mercedes-Benz X-Class Release Date is Coming Soon
When you think of a Mercedes-Benz, chances are that luxury appointments, premium amenities, and sophisticated driving dynamics come to mind. While that’s all true, Mercedes-Benz wants to push the envelope with the introduction of the Mercedes-Benz X-Class to the mix. The Mercedes-Benz X-Class is the world’s first premium luxury pickup truck. If that sounds like making the impossible possible, maybe seeing will mean believing.
If you thought that a luxury pickup truck from Mercedes-Benz means compromising genuine utility, you’d be happily mistaken. This pickup truck will be able to handle a payload of up to 1.1 tonnes, as well as a max towing capacity of 3.5 tonnes when properly equipped. The most powerful engine in the lineup will be a turbo-diesel V6, which beyond serving up robust performance numbers will also deliver surprisingly strong fuel economy. You’ll be able to go everywhere with incredibly agile and sure footing, thanks to 4MATIC® all-wheel drive.
Mercedes-Benz will not sacrifice the pristine cabin environments it’s known for in order to enter the pickup segment. You can look forward to an outstanding lineup of high-end accoutrements inside this model, including premium materials finishes, a carefully arranged ergonomic layout, and advanced infotainment and connectivity features that rival any luxury sedan out there. Other performance features will include electronic differential locks, a transfer case with reduction gear, as well as locking rear and inter-axle differentials for off-road situations. Put the doubters to rest with a luxury pickup that gets the job done and goes where you want it to.
When is it Coming Here?
The Mercedes-Benz X-Class represents the introduction of a whole new level of utility and performance among luxury vehicles bearing the three-pointed star. Unfortunately, right now it looks like the X-Class will be limited to markets outside of the United States. We could see this Mercedes-Benz pickup hit the American marketplace in years to come, though.
