Mercedes-Benz First Ever Pickup Truck X-Class To Reach UAE
An all new X-Class Pickup Truck has been launched by Mercedes-Benz with the target markets of Australia, New Zealand, Argentina, GCC and South Africa.
The X-Class Pickup Truck is based on the Nissan’s new third-generation Navara, or at least the N300 vehicle platform.
The X-Class pickup truck was shown by Mercedes-Benz in Stolkhom, last year, but the version launched this year seems to have deviated from the aggressive concepts that were earlier shown. But, apart from that, Mercedes has everything else just about same, as the pickup truck will have three variants to make a choice from, such as four or six cylinders engine, all wheel drive or rear wheel drive that include an optional permanent all-wheel drive option.
The pickup truck will be available on three wheel preferences, those being 17, 18 and 19-inch wheels. The car boasts of a seven-speed automatic transmission or a six-speed manual and has a towing capacity of around 3.5 tons.
Although the engines are all diesel, Mercedes have already made it clear that for UAE and Morocco, a petrol powered X 200 model will be made. The petrol version will have a 165 horsepower four-cylinder engine that will be paired with rear-wheel drive.
The X-Class will come equipped with hand crafted leather, an 8.4-inch multimedia touch screen, seven airbags as standard, active brake assist, traffic sign recognition, and a 360-degree camera.
The car seems to be a bold move by the Mercedes Benz and is based on the company eying the future of the category.
