Mercedes-Benz Unveils X-Class Pickup Truck

A Mercedes-Benz pickup truck? It's here! The company has just unveiled a premium pickup called the X-Class.

There's actually two versions of the truck, both coming with an all-wheel drive system and high-torque V6 engines, but in two very different styles. An off-road model, dubbed the "Powerful Adventurer", is taller, with a higher ground clearance, as well as rugged tires, for off-road travel. The "Stylish Explorer", on the other hand, is an urban SUV in a pickup truck shell, featuring flared wheel arches and 22-inch alloy wheels.

Both editions of the Mercedes-Benz X-Class are slated to hit Europe and South Africa in late 2017.
