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 has new police-ready packages for X-Class, Sprinter, E-Class, GLC

Luckily for German law enforcement officers, Mercedes-Benz is presenting them with more ways to catch criminals as it launches the X-Class truck for cops at the General Police Equipment Exhibition & Conference 2018 in Frankfurt. Aside from the truck, the automaker will also reveal other models that are part of its range of Polizei-ready models, including some really efficient options.

Here is the thing, MercedesBenz does not offer many details about the changes for its police focused vehicles. But we are assuming that if these tweaks are similar to those like law enforcement models in the United States, these will likely include radio systems, on-board computers for officers, and a lot of storage space to keep all of the cops’ equipment.

For the X-Class in its police spec, the model is based on an all wheel drive to make it perform even better off road. The Polizei livery, however, makes the truck look really cool.

Tischer converts Mercedes-Benz X-Class pickup truck into a posh camper van

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.

BMW executive describes the Mercedes-Benz X-Class as a disappointment

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.

Have you seen anything like this yet? Or the better question would be, do you want to see something like this made? With this rendering, a Behance designer amps up the ante of the new Mercedes-Benz X-Class following a Maybach digital transformation. Russian digital artist Nikita Akysonov equipped Mercedes Benz’s pickup truck with massive air intakes, a new bumper plus a new grille with horizontal chrome design and flashy new LED headlights. At the back end of the pickup, a handful of new equipment certainly won’t go unnoticed too such as the new bumper, new tailgate and redesigned taillights in LED.

As standard, the Mercedes-Benz X-Class has been built as a tough performance pickup truck characterized by efficient handling and drivability These are achieved using Mercedes’ comfort suspension with coil springs on both axles, front independent wheel suspension, a multi link suspension at the rear and a ladder type frame. With its advanced design, the new pickup attains both being rugged and stylish.

The thing is, Daimler considers the X-Class to be the first pickup that provides superb performance both on road and off-road. In fact, Mercedes-Benz already has extensive knowledge in developing some of the toughest off-roaders and commercial vehicles like the G-Class and Unimog. Taking this into account, we can consider the new Volkswagen Amarok with V6 TDI engine to be its closest market rival. This is true at least for medium sized pickups with extreme off-road capabilities.

Would you have ever imagined a Mercedes-Benz developing an upscale pickup? We first saw this last October as a concept car and now, the production model of the Mercedes-Benz X-Class has been revealed. The pickup comes with a number of engine options, proven chassis and has a subtler look than the concept car.

It shares the same platform as the Nissan Navara and Renault Alaskan, and it is said to be a part of Mercedes-Benz and Nissan's joint development program. The former promises that this will have a lot more improvements compared to the more mainstream models.

2018 Mercedes-Benz X-Class should be in German dealerships in November, and will be shipped out to Australia and South Africa next year, followed by South America in 2019. It will have a starting price of €37,294 including VAT. The company has no plans on bringing the upscale pickup to the United States just yet.

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.
