MERCEDES CLASSE X CONCEPT STARRY PICKUP
Who would have thought that one day Mercedes will launch on the market for pick-up? Yet this is the Stuttgart manufacturer of promise with this concept called Mercedes Classe X which will create a production version by the end of 2017.
But if the Mercedes Classe X claims to be the « first premium pick-up », its origins are actually more plebeian. The German is indeed based on the same platform as the Nissan Navara NP300 and Renault Alaskan. In contrast, Mercedes Classe X will be entitled to specific engines. While his two distant cousins have to settle for a 4-cylinder diesel 2.3 biturbo developing up to 190 hp, the pick-up Mercedes will be able to count on a big V6 diesel to cap the range. of course, all engines will be automatically coupled to the wheel drive 4Matic. Note that the concept of Mercedes Classe X also comes in a decidedly adventurous version with off road tires and a more suitable hardware with driving off the beaten track. Appointment end of 2017 for marketing the series of Mercedes Classe X.
