Mercedes-Benz unveils its 2018 X-Class pick-up truck
Based on the Nissan Navara, the 2018 Mercedes X-Class aims to bring ‘premium’ to the pick-up market.

Mercedes-Benz has a history of producing vans for the commercial vehicle market – but now the brand is branching out further with its new pick-up truck, called the X-Class. While this may seem like an all-new model for Mercedes, the X-Class is based on the Nissan Navara, the global successor to the Frontier. This gives the Mercedes some serious truck cred while allowing the German automaker to thoroughly customize its standards. Those hoping for a version here in North America will likely be sorely disappointed, as Mercedes announced plans to sell the X-Class in overseas markets, but not the United States.



The exterior is essentially a Nissan Navara with Mercedes-Benz styling front and rear. Not much has changed from the concept version. Still, it's a handsome thing, with the familiar two-bar and three-pointed star grille, LED-accented headlights, and a wide lower intake up front. The flat rear features another large emblem flanked by tall, thin tail lights. There's a large bar in the bed, presumably to mount lights. It also looks like roof rails and a tonneau cover are available on some trims. Mercedes has attempted to make the exterior both good-looking and functional. The cargo area comes standard with lighting, and a light underneath the center brake light illuminates the entire bed. The bed is wide enough to fit a Euro-spec pallet flat in between the wheels. A 12-volt outlet comes standard.



There are three trim levels: Pure, Progressive, and Power. Each comes with different standard options. The X-Class comes in nine colors. There are 17-, 18-, and 19-inch wheel options, depending on the trim. Other options include running boards and an electrically operated sliding rear window. Pricing hasn't been announced. The interior is far more Mercedes-like. The X-Class comes with a wide variety of options underneath the skin. There will be four engines, two transmissions, and three types of drive systems. Don't expect an AMG variant. An executive said at the reveal the X-Class has a towing capacity of 7,000 pounds.
