The 2018 Mercedes-Benz X-Class Luxury Truck Is Finally Real

2018 Mercedes Benz S-Class adds hybrid in-line six options

This makes it slightly more capable and rugged than Honda's Ridgeline, which is about the same size as the X-Class.

The X-Class will go on sale in Europe this November and German pricing starts at €37,294.

After unveiling renderings last October, Mercedes-Benz has officially unveiled photos of the production version of its X-Class pickup truck.

Check out the full reveal at the link below.

Also available is a 163bhp petrol engine for the X 200 spec.

Three equipment levels are offered: Pure, Progressive, and Power.

"The new X-Class finds the flawless balance between the stylish design expected of a Mercedes-Benz and the uncompromising robustness and functionality demanded of the category".

With the 4x4 system engaged via the dash-mounted rotary knob that will be one of the few aspects of the X-Class cabin familiar to Nissan Navara owners, we headed onto the specially prepared off-road course.

Other luxuries include power-adjustable front seats on high-grade models, leather-upholstered dashboards, leather upholstery from the mid-grade model and up, voice controls and a top-down camera view. The X-Class is being offered in three separate versions - Pure, Progressive, and Power.

Mercedes claims the diesel has been developed to comply with future real-world emission regulations with a raft of innovative functions created to improve its efficiency, including a stepped-bowl combustion process, near-engine exhaust treatment and variable lift control camshafts for the first time. The X-Class will be available with either a 6-speed manual or 7-speed automatic (G-TRONIC PLUS), depending on the specific model.

The top-of-the-range will be a six-cylinder diesel called the X 350 d rated at 255 HP and 405 lb-ft of torque. A 5.4-inch infotainment screen is standard, but you can upgrade to a larger 8.4-inch unit.

You can connect to the pick-up via Mercedes' app and there's plenty of safety kit on board, too, with active brake assist, lane keep and traffic sign recognition.

An "engageable" 4MATIC all-wheel drive system with low-range gearing and optional differential lock on the rear axle is the only option available to customers from launch, with permanent all-wheel drive arriving in 2018.

However, the magazine expects it to cost "around £28,000 excluding VAT", with first deliveries reaching customers next January.
