There’s a Mercedes-Benz pickup truck coming and it could look like this.
Last month a leaked roadmap revealed that the Mercedes-Benz pickup truck, rumored to be called the GLT, will arrive in 2017. In June, spy photographers caught a prototype testing that suggested the Mercedes pickup could use the Nissan Navara as a platform. Based on the early spy photos, it appears Mercedes will widen the existing Navara and will share a lot of Nissan’s architecture underneath.
AutoGuide.com worked with digital artist Tobias Büttner to come up with what we believe the Mercedes-Benz GLT pickup truck could look like when it bows in 2017. Naturally it will carry over styling cues from the existing GLE SUV, but with a more rugged look, while retaining the signature Mercedes-Benz front end. Expect it to be stylish yet aggressive with a hint of off-road design throughout.
It is believed the Mercedes-Benz GLT pickup is being designed for the European, Australian, South African and Latin American markets, although the German automaker is considering the U.S. It could also save on tariffs by producing the model at Nissan’s plant in Mexico.
