With the Concept X-Class, Mercedes-Benz Vans gives a concrete outlook on its new pickup. Its design and setup are previewed by the two design variants of the concept. The X-Class powerful adventurer (pictured above) illustrates all the strengths of a classic pickup – tough, functional, strong, and with off-road capability. The X-Class stylish explorer (pictured below) goes a step further and shows what will distinguish the pickup bearing the Mercedes three-pointed star.
The X-Class promises to be a true Mercedes, from the hallmark brand design and comfort to the driving dynamics and safety. This will make Mercedes-Benz the first premium manufacturer to target the changing customer requirements in the global segment of mid-size pickups, and it will make the tough one-ton pickup with seating for up to five persons the first to be attractive as an urban lifestyle ride and versatile family vehicle.
With the pickup, Mercedes-Benz Vans will expand its product range with a fourth model series. At the same time, the brand will become the first premium manufacturer to occupy the promising segment of mid-size pickups.
The X-Class will be launched in late 2017, and its key markets will be Argentina, Brazil, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Europe.
