The new Mercedes-Benz X-Class Pickup Concept 2018-2019 – the first news, price, photos and video, equipment and technical characteristics of the concept Mercedes-class pickup Mercedes- Benz 2018-2019, a forerunner of the Mercedes serie in the backpack pickup X- class. On October 25, 2016, at a special event in Stockholm, the German company Mercedes-Benz presented two prototypes of the Mercedes-Benz serial pick-up truck, the X-class – a stylish pickup for the city performed by Stylish Explorer and an uncompromising version of the Powerful Adventurer SUV.

According to preliminary information, the price of the German pickup Mercedes-Benz X-Class will be from 35-40 thousand euros.

The information that Mercedes is preparing its first pickup appeared a long time ago, but was somewhat surprised by the fact that as a basis for the new model, the Germans chose the Nissan NP300 Navara platform . Somehow it’s hard for fans of the German brand to realize that a pickup truck with a three-beam star is a relative of Nissan Navara , and even in addition to Renault Alaskan . Designers Mercedes-Benz as if anticipating fears of motorists so dramatically changed the exterior and interior of the car, as the spirit of the common-duty pickups of the alliance Renault Nissan did not remain.




As stated above in the review, the Germans showed in Sweden two concepts at once: a stylish, bright and sporty version with a chic interior – Stylish Explorer, and a powerful version of the Powerful Adventurer pickup truck, prepared for serious off-road, with a reinforced suspension, all-wheel drive, differential lock, huge 22-inch wheels with toothed tires, an impressive 400 mm clearance and two winches.


Both concepts, by the way, look amazing: compact LED headlamps, a huge falshradiatornaya grille, a solid bumper with a large air intake, a spacious cabin Double Cab, harmonious proportions of the body and a phenomenally stylish design of the rear of the body with the original LED headlights.

The interior of the concept of the X-Class pickup demonstrates the true style and high functionality of the Mercedes saloon, from the steering wheel and dashboard to the front panel and center console.

The strict design, high-quality finishing materials (genuine leather, Nappa, Alcantara, natural wood and polished aluminum), modern equipment (an advanced multimedia system with an 8-inch color screen supporting Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a convenient touchpad on the central tunnel), comfortable first Row and comfortable rear seats, a full electric package (driver’s and front passenger’s seats, mirrors and window regulators), dual-zone climate control.

Of course, there are a lot of electronic assistants and assistants: a system for tracking objects in blind areas of rear-view mirrors, an automatic braking system with a pedestrian detection function, helper assistants at the start of the hill and downhill, a tracking system for unauthorized intersection of the marking line, a rear-view camera Or the system of a circular review, adaptive cruise control.
