X-Class to launch in late 2017.
The world’s first premium pickup, the X-Class, will be a true Mercedes, from the hallmark brand design and comfort to the driving dynamics and safety. The top-of-the-line model will be powered by a V6 diesel in combination with 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive. The all-wheel-drive system will combine an electronic traction system, a transfer case with reduction gear, and two differential locks. It will be launched in late 2017 under the name Mercedes-Benz X-Class. The key markets will be Argentina, Brazil, South Africa, Australia with New Zealand, and Europe.
