Utility vehicles have always found a favour with buyers across the world. Pickup trucks for instance, have been a hit in many markets. Mercedes-Benz is one of the latest manufacturers to get into this trend and have revealed its first ever pickup truck, the X-Class. Mercedes-Benz is the first ever premium car manufacturer in recent times to launch a pickup truck (Yes! The X-Class is production ready and deliveries will begin in November 2017). The overall design and styling of the X-Class has been kept as close to the concept car as possible. The front end is adorned with a big twin-louvre grille, a centrally positioned star along with front bumper wearing chunky black cladding. The pickup makes use of a twin cab design and will be available in three variants; Pure, Progressive and Power.

In typical Mercedes fashion, the interior feels premium and customers can choose from leather and fabric upholstery with contrast top-stitching. The dashboard feels a little plain but the car does get a 5.4-inch COMAND infotainment system along with a host of connectivity options. Mercedes-Benz will also be offering a variety of accessories and customisation options such as side bar, styling bar canopies and other cargo and off-road options.
