Updated S-Class revives Mercedes-Benz straight-sixes

The Mercedes X-Class, which was introduced as a concept last year, will be available in Germany by November 2017 and other European countries this year, followed by Australia and South Africa in the beginning of 2018.

While the concept of the X-Class was unveiled in October a year ago, Mercedes-Benz debuted the production-ready spec of the pickup in Cape Town, South Africa.

Check out the full reveal at the link below. Another variant of the engine will be a petrol with a capacity of 165 horsepower. On the Pure the bumpers are unpainted, while on the Progressive and Power they are body-colour.

"As a result, with the X-class, we can effectively provide a solution for trade and fleet customers, and we will find out just how far this category can evolve for private customers who need the vehicle to support their lifestyle".

The X-Class can haul a payload of up to 1,042kg and tow up to 3.5 tonnes, featuring a load bed length measuring 1,587mm long by 1,560mm wide.

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz X-Class Luxury Truck Is Finally Real

Underneath the X Class it's, as we know, based on the Nissan Navara. In addition there are six different seat covers, including two leather variants, three sets of cockpit trim parts and a diverse range of accessories developed by Mercedes-Benz. The Mercedes model will be available initially with two diesel options as well as a gasoline engine.

Mercedes claims the diesel has been developed to comply with future real-world emission regulations with a raft of innovative functions created to improve its efficiency, including a stepped-bowl combustion process, near-engine exhaust treatment and variable lift control camshafts for the first time.

Inside there's leather interior as an option and a 8.4-inch infotainment system carried over from the V-Class with Garmin sat nav built in. A high-torque V6 diesel engine will be released mid-2018 with 258 hp. There's also a differential lock for the rear axle available, and Downhill Speed Regulation, along with various drive modes to help take on various terrain types. The company also said that its pickup will be available with a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed automatic gearbox.

As in all M-B models, safety remains a priority and the X-Class will come with or offer active brake and lane keeping assist, traffic sign recognition, trailer stability assist, LED headlamps and an emergency call system.
