Mercedes Pickup Truck Sheds Some Camo for Spy Photographers

1

The Mercedes-Benz X-Class pickup truck has shed a bit of its camouflage.

This is the first time we’ve seen the X-Class sporting the new front end with Mercedes-Benz styling, and it’s starting to look a lot less like the Nissan Navara it is based on. Up front, you can see LED daytime running lights, while the grille, lower front hood, and bumper carry Mercedes-Benz’s design language. The rear also now has the correct bumper along with what appears to be the production tail lights.

Perhaps most interesting is that this particular prototype has fuel caps on both sides, suggesting a possible plug-in hybrid powertrain.

The company previewed what the X-Class will look like with a concept and has also ruled out the North American market. Look for the production model to debut sometime this year.

    Nothing like the concept. I will stay with my Ranger Wild Track.
