Mercedes X-Class Is The Honda Ridgeline On Premium Steroids
The concept Mercedes X-Class has the base of the Nissan Navara and most of the architecture of the truck has been changed so as to fit into the bodywork of the Mercedes Benz. It is going to offer up the V6 diesel engine, which is said to be a class leading turbocharged engine, despite the figures not being revealed just yet. This means that the X-Class is very much like the Honda Ridgeline on steroids.
The Mercedes X-Class is a lifestyle pickup truck as opposed to being one for going off the road, the same as the Ridgeline. However the biggest difference between it and the Honda Ridgeline is that this is a premium vehicle.
The Mercedes X-Class should be able to carry around 2,400 pounds and tow around 7,700lbs of weight. It will also be able to do this while at the same time offering up the quality of ride that Mercedes Benz is known for.
It is thought that the Mercedes X-Class should come out later on next year and at the moment we haven’t heard what the price tag is going to be. Production will start rolling out in Europe, Australia and South Africa and it will then move on to Latin America later.
It has been said that the Mercedes X-Class isn’t going to make its way to the US thanks to 25% being levied on imported trucks.
