Finished Class-G derivatives produced at homeopathic dose: now, Mercedes wants to get into the pick-up market more seriously. With the agreement of the Renault-Nissan Alliance, to launch the imminent Class X. Revealed on July 18, this great fellow will indeed be a cousin of the Navara of the Japanese manufacturer, who also lends his base to the ‘Alaskan of the Losange. But to justify its coat of arms and fairly salty prices, this pickup will not only have a large chrome grille decorated with a star. It will also take care more of its quality of manufacture, with a dashboard evoking much that of the last productions house.
On the technical side, the Mercedes Class X will borrow the mechanics of GLE and GLS. The diesel six-cylinder 350d of 258 horsepower for 620 Nm of torque will be of the part. The cavalry will travel to the ground via four-wheel drive and a 9G-Tronic box. See you on July 18 to see all the details of the Mercedes Class X.
A video showing the Mercedes-Benz Class X in the dark has just been put online by the manufacturer of Stuttgart to make “mount the sauce” a few days of its official presentation. Carpets in a near-darkness, the pick-up at the Star nevertheless reveals its shape and a visual language very inspired by the SUV models of the brand.
