Yes, the Mercedes-Benz Pickup Truck is usually Real, as well as There Are Two Versions
Mercedes-Benz took the wraps off two mid-size pickup-truck concepts that will preview the forthcoming Nissan Navara–based X-class, which is usually officially dubbed the Concept X-class. Mercedes further christened each concept with surnames sure to make the marketing executives at Mattel jealous: Stylish Explorer as well as Powerful Adventurer.
As its name implies, the Stylish Explorer is usually the Brian Fantana of the duo. Painted in white, the Stylish Explorer favors being in vogue over carrying heavy payloads. Not that will the item can’t, of course, as all production X-class pickups will utilize Centeng-on-frame construction that will Mercedes claims will allow the truck to carry as much as 2200 pounds in its bed as well as tow up to 7000 pounds. Meanwhile, the top-of-the-line X-class will be available with both a torquey six-cylinder engine as well as a four-wheel-drive system using a transfer case as well as two differential locks. Still, the Stylish Explorer’s front clip that will mimics the style of Mercedes-Benz’s SUVs, its big 22-inch wheels, as well as its LED taillight strip could seem to indicate that will This specific truck is usually better suited for producing a statement at the country club than for showing up to help build said country club.
Mercedes-Benz, though, knows that will pickup trucks can make more than just one kind of style statement, which is usually why the brand also showed off the Concept X-class Powerful Adventurer. Sporting a more rugged-looking front-end design that will incorporates a winch, as well as a set of chunky black fender flares, knobby 35-inch tires, as well as a raised suspension, the nearly 75-inch-tall Powerful Adventurer is usually the yin to the Stylish Explorer’s yang.
Inside, each truck’s Inner surface wears hues that will denote the two vehicles’ respective missions of style as well as adventure. although the concept cabins also reveal components that will appear to have been sourced directly via the brand’s parts bin, such as the steering wheel, HVAC vents, COMAND controller, as well as multimedia screen.
Mercedes-Benz notes that will the production X-class will launch late next year in Europe, South Africa, as well as Australia, with the truck reaching Latin American markets in 2018. We’re told that will the truck is usually still under consideration for the U.S. market, although there’s no internal timeline regarding when a decision will be made.

If the X-class does make the item to the States, expect the item to follow within the footsteps of the Metris, a vehicle based on the workaday Mercedes-Benz Vito as well as not the more luxurious Mercedes-Benz V-class. In different words, don’t get too attached to the Concept X-class Stylish Explorer, because we’re more likely to see an X-class within the vein of the Powerful Adventurer—that will is usually, if we see an X-class at all.
