The Mercedes pickup truck should arrive in late 2017, if this leaked road map is accurate.

The road map, which was acquired by Auto Car, details what the German automaker has in the works for the coming year, including a convertible Mercedes-AMG GT model. It also confirms that Mercedes will launch nine new models and two new Smart models next year.

With the new E-Class sedan introduced this year, it’s no surprise to see the E-Class coupe on the horizon for 2017. There is also a high-riding E-Class All Terrain in the works while the S-Class will receive a facelift. It also appears Mercedes will expand on the GLA crossover lineup with a coupe four-door coupe model, like the larger GLC.

Most interesting however is confirmation that the Mercedes-Benz pickup truck, expected to be called the GLT, will arrive by late 2017. Spy photographers have caught a prototype testing, so we know it’s in the works. And for those anxiously awaiting a drop-top AMG GT, your wish will be fulfilled with a fabric soft top, similar to what’s found on the SLS roadster.
