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

Article by Christian A., on November 21, 2018

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.

Furthermore, the extra two wheels mean extra tires, and the X-Class Exy 6x6 Concept by Carlex Design rides on large off-road rubbers. These wheels are accommodated by large fenders spanning nearly the entire length of the extended bed. All fenders – both on the front and rear wheels – have exposed rivers.

Up front, the X-Class Exy 6x6 Concept by Carlex Design features a revised front fascia with large air intakes in the corners. Moreover, the front end gains a winch in the center. Likewise, the Exy 6x6 Concept comes with a revised bonnet with a scoop. A light bar using light emitting diode units is mounted on the roof.

On the rear section, the X-Class Exy 6x6 Concept by Carlex Design features a tailgate with massive X as well as new bumper with integrated exhaust outlets.

The images released by Carlex Design are only renderings, which could mean that it is still working on the X-Class Exy 6x6 Concept. Carlex Design didn’t say anything about the engine under the hood, but the presence of a scoop could mean extra power – even more than the range-topping turbodiesel 3.0-liter V6 engine that delivers 258 hp (190 kW) of max output and 406 lb.-ft. (550 Nm) of peak torque.
