Mercedes-Benz Announces 2017 X-Class Pickup Truck
The X-Class will debut in 2017.
Mercedes-Benz said it will launch a pickup truck in late 2017, becoming the first German premium auto maker to enter one of the most lucrative segments in the car industry.
Mercedes said the new “X-Class” will hit showrooms in Australia, Brazil, Argentina, South Africa and Europe late next year.
Daimler Chief Executive Dieter Zetsche, said: “With the Mercedes-Benz pickup, we will close one of the last gaps in our portfolio.”
Currently no launch date for the United States, the biggest market for pickups, has been announced.
