Mercedes-Benz is identified to be working on their initial pickup truck ever as the manufacturer sees a possible, booming market place for luxurious, high-end open-bed trucks.
Now, CarAdvice down yonder reports the new truck from the Silver Arrow could be known as the X-Class. Alternatively, it could also be referred to as the Z-Class.
So far from what we know, the Mercedes’ new pickup is to be based off of the most current Nissan NP300 and Navara, or far more or much less Asia’s rendition of the Nissan Frontier. This is a offered with Daimlers’ pretty recent partnership with Renault-Nissan.
It’ll be geared towards ruggedness and off-road capability, which are two items Mercedes-Benz is capable of. Just appear at the Gelandewagen, for instance.
Though unlike Mercedes-Benz’s that we’re used to seeing, the new pickup will be provided in a selection of entry-level forms. It’s specifically to concentrate the aim of the truck towards affordability, simplicity, dependability, and utilitarianism, considering that the pickup is a very well-liked type of transportation for the blue-collar working class of the globe.
And elsewhere in the planet, Mercedes-Benz isn’t just recognized for producing pompous luxury cars given that you can still get several models with cloth seats, faux-leather, low-cost plastic, small motors, and minimal gear and tech.
Speaking of which, the new pickup is anticipated to receive two new diesel choices, either a 2.3L turbodiesel 4, or an optional V6.
Although, practically nothing has been confirmed.
