Mercedes Benz Concept X Class Truck

DuPont is talking about a new vehicle from Mercedes; the Mercedes Benz Concept X Class Truck.

According to DuPont writer Ed Jones, there will be two types of the Concept X Class Truck: the stylish explorer and powerful adventurer.

Says Jones,

“The powerful adventurer example of the X-Class is Mercedes-Benz’s take on a rugged off-road truck. With a height of 1.9 meters and 35×11.50 inch tires, it has plenty of presence. Adding to the rugged appearance is the electric winch, front and rear underride guards, carbon wheel arches and more.

For a stylish take on the truck, there’s the stylish explorer. This version is much more streamlined and elegant than the off-road-ish truck. On the outside, it seems almost bare when compared to the powerful adventurer, but it makes up for it with sleek edges and a futuristic rear light. Also, instead of the rugged tires and wheels, this version has large wheels with lower-profile tires.”

The Concept X will reportedly be a six cylinder AWD diesel. Jones continues,

“As for what will be powering the truck, Mercedes-Benz states that the top-of-the-line model will be housing a V6 diesel engine. Mated to this engine will be an all-wheel-drive system that has an electronic traction system, transfer case with reduction gear and two differential locks. The press release also goes on to say that this system has a towing capacity of up to 3.5 tons.”

Mercedes-Benz Van HMFIC Volker Mornhinweg describes the new effort thusly:

“We will open up and change the segment of mid-size pickups – with the world’s first true premium pickup for the modern urban lifestyle. Our future X-Class will be a pickup that knows no compromise. Ladder-type frame, high-torque six-cylinder engine, and permanent all-wheel drive are compulsory for us.”
