The Mercedes-Benz pickup truck will be previewed in concept form on October 25.

According to the German automaker, the concept will preview the design direction of the production pickup truck, that is believed to be called GLT. The Mercedes-Benz pickup truck is the result of a technical partnership between parent company Daimler and Nissan and is expected to share its platform with the Nissan Navara, which is sold as a midsize pickup in other markets.

Spy photographers have caught what is believed to be the GLT testing, sporting a similar size as the Navara but with a different front grille design. Based on the teaser image the German automaker has shared, the concept will keep the crew cab configuration that photographers caught on the prototype.
