When everyone always has a camera at hand, this can happen. On the web we find this picture of an uncovered X-Class Mercedes pick-up, a few months before introduction. The X-Class is clearly an offspring of the Nissan Navarra, as ties between Mercedes and Renault seem to become ever tighter. Both companies share a lot of technology when it comes to small cars, vans and now this pick-up truck.
The X-class Merc, which was already introduced statically late last year in Stockholm, will debut later this year. Underneath we expect technology from Nissan and Renault, featuring a 2,2 dCi engine. As with the Nissan Navarra, the Merc has advanced technology when it comes to four wheel drive and assisting systems for safely taking descends. We expect the Mercedes X class to become more expensive than the Navarra. And yes, this year we will see a Renault-badged variant as well, the Renault Alaskan.
