Mercedes-Benz Officially Unveils First Pickup Truck: the X-Class

After unveiling renderings last October, Mercedes-Benz has officially unveiled photos of the production version of its X-Class pickup truck.

The all-new X-Class series boasts a 1920mm x 5340mm body, as well as a rear or all-wheel drive (AWD) system, with a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed automatic, respectively. It  also has four engine offerings: two four-cylinder diesels, a four-cylinder gas engine, and a V6 diesel.

Mercedes says the truck is capable of carrying cargo up to 1.1 tons with a drag force of 3.5 tons, while the interior is said to be even more luxurious when compared to its G-Class wagon.

There will be three trims of the Mercedes-Benz X-Class: the PURE basic variant for classic robust use; PROGRESSIVE for a higher quality feel and comfort; and POWER as the high-end variant.
