Mercedes-Benz X-Class 2018 revealed

Mercedes-Benz X-Class 2018 revealed

On the inside Mercedes-Benz has paid careful attention to giving the X-Class a unique identity. On first impressions, you'll notice the modern Mercedes styling, with a large two-tier grille cementing it as a Merc product, with a large three-pointed star badge in the middle.

Mercedes has revealed pictures of its new X-Class pickup, surely the classiest addition to the genre from the premium German manufacturer.

Head of Mercedes-Benz vans Volker Mornhinweg told Auto Express magazine: "The X-Class will redefine the pick-up into a true premium vehicle". A 6-speed manual transmission is standard on all but the Power model comes with a 7G-Tronc Plus automatic that is optional on other X-Class variants.

Safety-wise, plenty of assistance is on hand in the form of active braking, lane keeping and traffic sign recognition.

The wraps are off. Mercedes-Benz has unveiled its first pick-up truck the Mercedes-Benz X-Class at an worldwide launch even in South Africa. "With the X-Class we will open up this segment to new customer groups, just as we redefined the off-road segment with the M-Class more than 20years ago". Or, if you're so inclined, the pickup can tow up to 3.5 metric tons (7,716 pounds) or as the company suggests a 26-foot yacht. Those opting for the X-Class as a lifestyle vehicle are likely to find themselves Power-hungry, as this is the top-spec trim level offering the most comfort and style. The truck will not be sold in North America and there is very little to suggest that it may be.

Mercedes X-Class will come in three trim levels, or model variants, created to suit different lifestyles, the company said Tuesday. At the time of launch, which is in November 2017, it will be offered with 4-cylinder petrol and diesel engines.

The Mercedes X Class will come with a choice of engine options and prices will start at €37,394 when it goes on sale later this year. The rear seat row for three people is positioned at a comfortable height and has reinforced seat side bolsters for optimum support in the outer seating positions.

A high-torque V6 diesel engine will be released mid-2018, ensuring even greater agility on- and off-road.

Both four-cylinder models will drive the rear wheels as standard, but a push-button four-wheel drive system can be optioned, and will include low-range and a differential lock.
