Oct. 27, 2016
Mercedes-Benz debuts its X-Class midsize pickup truck, which is scheduled for production by mid-2017, WardsAuto reports. The pickup is part of a joint venture with Nissan and Renault. The double-cab pickup is depicted in two distinct concept forms by the German automaker’s design team. “In Stylish Explorer form, the concept is said to closely preview the initial X-Class model, featuring a largely production-ready steel body, an on-road biased wheel and tire package, moderate ride height and a luxurious leather-lined interior,” according to Wards.

The double-cab pickup is depicted in two distinct concept forms by the German automaker’s design team.

“In Stylish Explorer form, the concept is said to closely preview the initial X-Class model, featuring a largely production-ready steel body, an on-road biased wheel and tire package, moderate ride height and a luxurious leather-lined interior,” according to Wards.

“A second variant known as the Powerful Adventurer projects a more rugged appearance in a concept that appears ready to storm the desert with generous ground clearance, 4-wheel drive, additional wheel-arch and body-side cladding and off-road wheels shod with traction-enhancing tires,” Wards added.

Main markets for the pickup include Australia, Argentina, Brazil, Europe and South Africa. Mercedes says it is investigating the possibility of X-Class sales in North America. WardsAuto has more.
