It has been a long time since everybody was contemplating about a pick-up truck from Mercedes-Benz, well the rumors are true. The company has just revealed its first ever pick-up truck concept christened as Mercedes-Benz concept X-Class. The new pick-up truck by Mercedes was introduced in two forms, the Stylish Explorer, and the Powerful Adventurer. Both the variants are identical on the engine part but it’s the exterior features that separate them both. Sharing the same ladder-frame platform as seen on the Nissan Navara, and Renault Alaskan, the all-new pick-up by Mercedes features the traditional Mercedes-Benz grille with the iconic 3-pointed start in the middle.
Daimler is said to have invested a tremendous amount of sum towards the new model, by tremendous amount of sum we mean they’re making investments in the high nine figures (euro). They are also looking forward on to put the pick-up truck section under Mercedes-Benz Vans product range.
“We will open up and change the segment of mid-size pickups – with the world’s first true premium pickup for the modern urban lifestyle”, says Volker Mornhinweg, Head of Mercedes-Benz Vans, in today’s press release. “Our future X-Class will be a pickup that knows no compromise. Ladder-type frame, high-torque six-cylinder engine, and permanent all-wheel drive are compulsory for us. As an added value we bring safety, comfort, agility, and expressive design – in other words, everything that distinguishes vehicles bearing the Mercedes star. We will thus appeal to new customers who have not considered owning a pickup before.”
