Lots of images of the Mercedes-Benz X-Class pickup truck were floating around last year, but everything seems to be pretty much official now. The German car giant has decided to tease the world with a brand-new video, just before the V6 powered X-Class pulls up at dealerships later this month.
The video below is compiled with a variety of clips of nature complemented by the pickup truck itself, displaying the truck’s symbolic Mercedes-Benz grille, modern headlights and tail lights, as well as its silhouette from the side – and it looks…well…just like what a pickup truck should look like.
As usual, there doesn’t seem to be much of a difference between the concept designs and what Mercedes’ final version of the truck appears to be. The X-Class still boasts the bulky truck body featuring the four-door cabin. Mercedes-Benz has collaborated with Nissan-Renault to bring the X-Class’ platform to life, in an attempt to battle with pickup trucks of competing brands such as Toyota. However, Mercedes seems to have a headstart in comparison to it’s closest competitors BMW and Audi who are yet to officially release any sort of off-road pickup truck. The company has confirmed that its new X-Class will only be available in Europe, Africa, and Latin America – US residents will not be seeing the truck being driven on their roads anytime soon.
Currently, there’s no word out regarding the full details and specs, pricing, or even an official release date but we should be hearing the full news from Mercedes-Benz on July 18th.
