Mercedes-Benz has always been synonymous with luxury and high quality. This branch of German auto manufacturer Daimler always tried to blend comfort with style & usability and they are getting to show their chops with the new X-Class Concept Truck ($TBA).
This mid-sized pickup truck is being targeted more to the urban rather than rural market. Rather than a workhorse, its luxury interior is designed more for the weekend adventurer and the cosmopolitan cruiser. As well as offering option features familiar in their C and V Class luxury automobiles, Mercedes is developing some pickup-specific options for this X-Class concept. Of the two styles currently being presented, the top model sports a six cylinder diesel engine. It will come with all-wheel drive and be capable of maximum 1.1 ton payloads or 3.5 ton towing capabilities.
Sadly for those pickup truck lovers in the USA, the X-Class is being created only for the European, Latin American, and Australian markets at the moment, where is expected to arrive in late 2017.
