We have been speculating on Iepieleaks how long it would take before Daimler would launch a pickup-truck, and now it is official: Mercedes-Benz Vans has anounched the launch of a midsize pickup before the end of this decade. In the press release Mercedes mentions the development of their own pickup but in our opinion that could be based on the Nissan Navara.
Mercedes-Benz is working closely together with Renault and Nissan and this could be the next stap. New Mercedes Benz products like the Citan, the new Smart and the new Vito with front wheel drive share a lot of components with Renault. So, the old Iepieleaks posting mentioning the Navara with the Citan nose and the name Citara could still be what we might expect!
