Managing director of Mercedes-Benz Vans Australia and New Zealand, Dianne Tarr said there is already plenty of interest in the X-Class. In fact, the X-Class likely won't be sold in North America at all. Either way, it's still a fascinating truck.
At 5340mm in length, the X-class is slightly shorter than a Ford Ranger (5351mm). Two four-pot turbo-diesel engines (120kW and 140kW each) and a bigger V6 (190kW) will be available. Both engines will be mated to either a six-speed manual transmission or an automatic transmission with seven speeds. While the Power variant comes with permanent, dual-range 4Matic all-wheel drive, Pure and Progressive turbodiesel models will offer a dual-range version that allows the driver to electronically disengage the front wheels when surface conditions permit. The press release states: 'The X-Class pushes the boundaries of the classic pickup. They've aimed for a high level of driving dynamics, stylish comfort and great functionality to make the X Class the Mercedes of bakkies, literally.
As for the cabin, the design carries over from most Mercedes cars of today, with circular air vents, a large tablet-style multimedia screen for the dash, and a range of luxury-focused trimmings and tones.
The X-Class offers three trim variants, with Pure featuring a more basic interior for commercial use, the top-spec Power trim coming with more luxury features for those who live in the city, while Progressive is a compromise between the two.
In terms of interior design and available technology, the X-Class looks much more like a Mercedes-Benz than its donor vehicle, with a full range of infotainment and safety systems lifted from other Benz models.
The X-Class' load bed can take a standard European pallet and a 12-volt power socket is integrated into the sides. In markets outside Europe, the off-road suspension is standard.
Due to go on-sale in Australia later this year, Mercedes-Benz Australia is in the final stages of defining the local S-Class line-up, including the model line-up, pricing and specifications.
While prices were not announced at the launch event held in Cape Town, it will certainly be priced as a premium lifestyle product.
