Mercedes-Benz has published the very first teaser video for its upcoming range of luxury pick-up trucks: the X-Class.
Towards the end of last year, we saw the very first concept images for a new series of vehicles under the branding Mercedes X Class. It was the first chance we’d been given to see the fancy pick-up truck that will eventually compete with other road-hogging giants like the Mitsubishi L200 and the Nissan Navara.
And this week, Mercedes finally published a teaser video of the new X Class, giving us a glimpse of what to expect. Unfortunately, the car only appears very briefly in the video, so don’t expect anything too exciting.
Mercedes announced it was working on a pick-up truck way back in 2015, and current estimates put the start of production at the end of this year. The X Class is being developed with the Nissan-Renault alliance, and is set to be assembled in both Europe and South America.
The German car giant is peddling the X Class as the world’s first “premium” pick-up, and despite the popularity of such vehicles in the USA, Mercedes only plans to sell it in Europe, Latin America, and Africa.
We don’t know much about the car’s specifications just yet, but it’s expected that we’ll see a turbocharged diesel V6 engine that powers a 4Matic all-wheel drive system.
