Two passenger vehicles and two semi-trucks were involved in the wreck that occurred just after 10:30 p.m. All lanes of northbound I-65 were closed for hours in the area of the crash but have been reopened.
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.

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

McConnell is trying to nail down 50 of the 52 GOP senators' votes so he can push the measure through his chamber next week. That means that McConnell, even if he keeps Johnson's vote, will definitely not have 50 votes until McCain returns.
