Carlex Design transforms the Mercedes-Benz X-Class into the beastly Exy 6x6 Concept

Carlex Design isn't a beginner with regards to tuning the Mercedes-Benz X-Class. In fact, it has even created a version with Maybach-like appearance and features. It has also created Off-Road-focused and Urban-tailored versions. Now, Carlex Design seems to be not contented with how far it has gone with the X-Class and is now presenting a new concept design for the luxury SUV from Mercedes.

Indeed, the Mercedes-Benz X-Class represents the luxury side of pickup trucks. While offering a drive that is comparable to a sports utility vehicle, the X-Class also delivers a smooth, comfortable ride that is expected of luxurious vehicles. Furthermore, it is laden with features usually found in premium cars. But at Carlex Design, the X-Class can be turned into luxurious 6x6 beast off the road. This can be well seen on the new X-Class Exy 6x6 Concept by Carlex Design.

The X-Class Exy 6x6 Concept is essentially the X-Class evolved into a whole new luxurious beast. It is much different from Carlex Design’s previous re-imaginations of Mercedes’ luxury pickup. The concept pickup has six wheels – two wheels more than a standard X-Class and previous Carlex Design X-Class creations. This also meant an extra axle on the rear section of this X-Class 6x6. The addition of two wheels naturally resulted to an extended bed, allowing this conversion of the X-Class to load and carry a greater volume of cargo.

Mercedes-Benz X-Class by Carlex Design offers Maybach looks and interior

When the Mercedes-Benz X-Class was unveiled in 2017, it was no doubt a representation of luxury among pickup trucks. While Maybach represents the ultra-luxurious side of Mercedes-Benz, the X-Class isn't one. However, a Polish company that goes by the name of Carlex Design is offering to convert the new X-Class into a Maybach-like pickup in terms of looks and features.

Carlex Design noted that the Mercedes-Benz X-Class deserves to be called as a luxury pickup. Not only that the pickup offers a drive comparable to a sports utility vehicle, it also delivers a smooth comfortable ride. In addition, the new X-Class, in its standard guise, isn't just coz and comfortable, but is also equipped with features found in premium cars. Thus, Carlex Design made the X-Class a subject of a new conversion program that could be availed for as low as EUR105,000. To prove its point, the Polish specialist created an example.

At a glance, the Mercedes-Benz X-Class by Carlex Design is undeniably an X-Class but with a twist. The typical grille of the X-Class has been replaced by that of a Maybach. In particular, this conversion employs a grille from the Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet.

Brabus tunes the Mercedes-Benz X-Class truck to be sportier, more practical!

For those of you who are not aware, the Mercedes-Benz X-Class is exactly the same model as the Nissan Navara, except it is dressed in fancier clothes while featuring some additional technology too. Also, the X-Class has been offering a more powerful six cylinder diesel engine since March.

Since there isn’t much of a difference between the two, there are some customers who are not willing to spend quite a bit more on the Mercedes-Benz X-Class. Instead, they opt for the more mainstream version. Nonetheless, the world’s largest aftermarket tuner, Brabus, has created a tuning package for this truck that might convince them to reconsider.

Brabus has developed a full-on exterior and interior kit for the X Class, giving it a sportier look while improving on its practicality. Among the add-ons are new LED markers built into the front bumper and another lighting module with twelve diodes on the roof, which is activated with the high beam. The revised fascia then gets a new grille design, and in the back is a set of chrome tailpipes.

Mercedes-Benz unveils X350d 4Matic X-Class at 2018 Geneva Motor Show

Mercedes-Benz is set to unveil the new X350d 4Matic X-Class at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. It was back in July 2017 when the brand first premiered its pickup which utilizes the chassis, as well as certain body panels, of the Nissan Navara. However this version is set out to be the most expensive one yet.

This new model has a six-cylinder engine and the 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive. Specifically, the new X-Class is fitted with the turbodiesel 3.0-liter V6 engine that benefits from the common-rail direct injection. With this, it can deliver an output of 258 hp (190 kW) with top torque measured to be 406 lb.-ft. (550 Nm) and available at 1,4000 rpm and up to 3,200 rpm.

As a comparison, the highest specification of the biturbodiesel V6 engine fitted in the Volkswagen Amarok is only able to deliver 224 hp (165 kW). In addition, while the amount of torque is similar, it is available beginning 1,5000 rpm. Paired to this engine is the 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission having steering wheel shift paddles as well as the ECO start/stop function. This transmission has been modified to allow it to transmit 60% of the available torque to the vehicle's rear wheels to result in a rear-based configuration, highly suitable especially for a pickup truck.

Mercedes-Benz is building on the success of the Marco Polo travel vans by offering more diversity with their newest offering -- the camper van conversion, catering to the more adventurous crowd. This new package does not directly come from Mercedes. Instead, it is the product of Tischer, a German company that specializes in converting pickups into recreational vehicles.

If you check out the German tuner’s page online, you would see a number of similar conversions for different brands and models such as the Land Rover Defender, the Volkswagen Amarok, Toyota Hilux, Nissan Navara, Isuzu D-Max, Ford Ranger, and to the Dodge Ram. As you know, Mercedes’ X-Class is somewhat based on the Navara, much like the Renault Alaskan. And that is why it should not come as a surprise that Tischer is adding the X-Class to its lineup.

The cabin is designed like a cove and the inside area measures 1.5 meters wide with nearly two meters of headroom. It offers plenty of space and includes a kitchen with a three-burner gas stove for cooking while on the road. It has enough space for three seats, which can easily be transformed into an extra bed when needed. The best part is that the entire cabin is demountable.

That there’s bad blood between Mercedes-Benz and BMW doesn’t surprise anyone. The fierce competition between the two brands may have stemmed from the fact that they both have German roots, and have been in the automotive industry for a very long time. Nevertheless, it’s quite unusual for either automaker to bash the other in public.

During the Frankfurt Motor Show, Motoring witnessed Hendrik von Kunheim, BMW Senior Vice President for Asia and South Africa, criticize Mercedes’ new X-Class pickup calling it “appalling”, while being interviewed by the Australian media.

Furthermore, von Kunheim said that he was very disappointed when he saw the pickup at Geneva a couple of months ago, adding that “they can do better”. Though he did say that Mercedes-Benz builds fantastic cars, he said that this particular one was a “disappointment.”

Hey hottie, care for a ride? Well, unfortunately (or fortunately for you) this low slung pickup truck is just a product of a person’s creative imagination. WinningDesigns, an artist based in Brisbane, Queensland Australia had thought about dressing up the Mercedes-Benz X-Class with a new outfit. Out of all the many choices, instead, he chose a “low-rider look” and so goes the self-styled “Slammed Mercedes-Benz X-Class”.

Let’s see…Is there a new bumper in place? Check. How about a new grille? Check. Side skirts? Check. Bigger wheels? Check. Roof bars? Nah.

The thing is, a low-riding pickup with the star emblem doesn’t appeal to everyone. Despite it being technically a Nissan Navarra bearing the Mercedes symbol. Any vehicle class with the classy Mercedes logo in our opinion should be better off left in its stock form. But we’d allow a few exceptions among the AMG-wearing coupes and cabriolets. But as they say, to each his own, so there it is, a Slammed Mercedes-Benz X-Class. What a rare sight to behold indeed.

Mercedes-Benz Vans has yet to officially unveil the production version of its X-Class luxury pickup truck, but quite a number of interested customers are asking the German carmaker whether it would be possible to place an order. But if you are living in the United Kingdom, you could now reserve a new X-Class pickup premium truck from Mercedes-Benz.

Mercedes-Benz Vans UK has now opened the reservations book for the new Mercedes-Benz X-Class, thanks to the “phenomenally early demand” for the premium pickup truck. This means that potential UK customers would just need to shell out some cash to have their names listed on the reservation list for the UK-spec Mercedes X-Class. Mercedes Vans UK has pegged the reservation fee at around £1,000 (more or less $1,248 or €1,162). When Mercedes finally and officially launches the sale of the X-Class, those who have their names on the list will be first to order the premium pickup truck.

However, since this is just a reservation list for the X-Class, UK customers who think that the premium pickup truck isn’t worth their money could back out from the roll. Of course, they wouldn’t have to worry about their reservation money since Mercedes Vans UK is prepared to refund the entire amount should they decide to withdraw from owning the UK-spec plush pickup truck.

Sorry folks, the AMG-fied Mercedes-Benz X-Class will remain in the fantasy world. According to some news, the AMG big boss has finally spoken up about why an AMG X-Class is not going to happen. So those who have been wishing to get more out of the 3L turbo diesel V6 engine need to wake up from this delusion.

Okay, so the recently unveiled Mercedes-Benz X-Class Concept will not have the AMG treatment. But, there must be a good reason behind this. Mercedes –AMG’s Tobias Moers clarified that the production-ready pickup truck will not be equipped with high-performance upgrades for three main reasons.

The obvious and most important one of all is the market. Slated to go on sale next year, the new pickup has yet to establish its own footprint. But since the X-Class will be marketed in Australia, maybe then we can see how it goes from there? Still, Moers believes that the demand for an AMG upgrade should come from other places as well. And as far as they can tell, it’s not going to happen.

Every time Mercedes-Benz comes out with a new model, it is expected that AMG is likely to come up to with a high-performance version of it. For example, with the unveiling of the Concept X-Class and the fact that a production version of this model is expected to be released by the end of 2017, it did not take the Affalterbach-based company very long to have a version that showed more muscle. However, it now appears that it is not only Motor1 who is looking into this possibility as X-Tomi Design has also come out with its own rendition of the X63 AMG.

For those not familiar, Mercedes-Benz’s Concept X-Class was a truck that had the luxury legacy of the company combined with the standard truck utility. What this meant is that it was a truck that displayed style and can be used on the job but at the same time function as family transport. As a result, the design of the Concept X-Class had the qualities of the luxury models as well as those of its standard pickups.

Now while Mercedes-Benz revealed that the X-Class will be powered with the V6 diesel engine, the X-Tomi version is imagined to have the biturbo 4.0-liter V8 engine from AMG. Though this particular engine can be offered with different tuning, the version in the AMG GT R is likely the best option for this considering the 577 horsepower (430 kW) output.

Many have been anticipating Mercedes-Benz Vans’ newest luxury pickup truck, the X-Class. While Mercedes-Benz has yet to reveal the official production version of the X-Class, it was kind enough to provide a good glimpse of the new pickup with the Concept X-Class in Stockholm.

The new X-Class pickup should allow Mercedes-Benz Vans to expand its lineup with a fourth model series and become the first premium carmaker to enter the mid-size pickup segment when it is launched into the market in late 2017.

By the time of the launch, Daimler AG plans to invest high nine figures (in Euro) in the new model series. Mercedes-Benz Vans plans to introduce the new midsize pickup in key markets, like Argentina, Australia Brazil, Europe, New Zealand and South Africa.

The first-ever pickup truck from Daimler's Mercedes-Benz unit will be launched by 2020. The truck will come first to the markets in Europe, Latin America, Australia, and South Africa. When interviewed by The Wall Street Journal, Volker Mornhinweg, head of Mercedes-Benz Vans, said that Mercedes has yet to decide if the pickup will be offered in the United States.

This pickup boasts a payload capacity of 1 metric ton. Mercedes-Benz's commercial van division will build this vehicle. In a statement released last Friday, Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche said that this pickup will “contribute nicely” to its worldwide growth targets.

He also said that in entering this segment, the company will keep its unique brand identity as well as all of the attributes typical of the brand related to “safety, comfort, powertrains, and value." Mercedes stated that more pickups are intended for private purposes.

Mercedes-Benz introduced the G63 AMG 6X6 back in 2013 and made quite a buzz with its six-wheeled vehicle which was built especially for the Middle East market. However, Brabus took things even further when it unveiled its B63S-700 G63 AMG 6X6 at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.

Its version boosted the 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 engine from 544 hp (400 kW) and 700 Nm of torque to an impressive 700 hp (515 kW) and 960 Nm of torque.

Bolted to the AMG Speedshift Plus 7G-Tronic automatic transmission, the engine is able to push the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 7.4 seconds, while top speed is 100 mph or 160 km/h.

The Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6 arrived back in 2013 with an insane price of 379,000 euros and is already a success among oil sheiks and wealthy Chinese businessmen. Still, people want even more from the G63 AMG 6x6 and Mansory seems to understand this and today it revealed its tuning programme for the German six-wheeled pickup.

The standard version of the G63 AMG 6x6 is powered by a 5.5-liter biturbo V8 engine that delivers 544 hp (400 kW) and 700 Nm of torque. Mansory reworked the AMG 8 cylinder twin turbo engine and installed genuine racing components as well as a new exhaust system.

As a result, the V8 engine now delivers an impressive 840 hp (618 kW) and a maximum torque electronically limited at 1,000 Nm. The engine uses the same AMG Speedshift Plus 7G-Tronic automatic transmission.

Brabus is out to showcase what its 'B63S-700' performance kit can do for Mercedes-Benz's niche model – the G63 AMG 6x6. On display at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the new Brabus B63S-700 6x6 was made to be even more potent and exclusive. The G63 AMG 6x6 is already quite impressive, with standard versions capable of delivering 536bhp and 561bhp, distributed to all six wheels through an AMG Speedshift Plus 7G-Tronic automatic transmission.

However, Brabus was able to raise this figure to 691bhp and 708lb ft. These major improvements of 155bhp and 147lb ft, are owed to the installation of a couple of new turbochargers, a modified ECU, high-flow catalytic convertors, a sports exhaust system and the extra heat shielding for the intake system.

Brabus also tweaked the six-wheeled 3775kg powerhouse to be able to accelerate from a standstill to 62mph in 7.4sec. But then, its top speed remains at 99mph. The speed was limited to protect the 37-inch off-road tires instead of the powertrain. In addition, the B63S-700 6x6 features an exhaust valve system that provides 'Sport' and 'Coming Home' modes.

Mercedes-Benz officially unveiled today the G63 AMG 6X6, a near-series show vehicle that promises to take the G-Class to another level. As expected, the vehicle is based on the G63 AMG, which means it is powered by the 5.5-liter biturbo V8 engine delivering 544 hp or 400 kw and 700 Nm of torque.

The engine is bolted to the AMG Speedshift Plus 7G-Tronic automatic transmission paired with the front drive system from the G63 AMG and a rear twin drive train from the 6x6 version, which proved its reliability in service with users such as the Australian army.

In terms of design the G63 AMG features large tyres, a huge ground clearance (it has a height of almost 2.30 metres and a width of almost 2.10 metres), the well-known AMG twin blade radiator grille, carbon fibre for the integrated LED light strips found above the windscreen as well as for the large flared wheel arches, stainless-steel roll-over bar for the rear load area section.

Mercedes-AMG won't be so silent about its performance aspirations as the high-performance arm of Mercedes-Benz unveiled another hardcore model at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. This time around, the performance division is giving more oomph to the new generation of the Mercedes GLE by taking the veil off the new Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 4MATIC+.

Even at the first look, the AMG GLE 53 4MATIC+ is easily identifiable as an AMG offering thanks to a number of elements that only its performance vehicles don.

Centrally located on the dynamic-looking Panamericana grille is the Mercedes star in the double ring.

Furthermore, the new AMG GLE 53 4MATIC+ features narrow headlamps, the A-Wing with silver-like trim as well as silver chrome-plated.

Renowned German tuner Brabus is giving the current generation 2018 G-Class a fitting goodbye with the new Brabus 700 4x4² "one of ten" Final Edition.
