On the web we found this stil unofficial picture of the upcoming, all-new Mercedes-benz pick-up truck. This is an entirely new segment for Daimler, which wants to compete with Volkswagen, Toyota and Ford.
The new Mercedes shares much technology with the also upcoming Renault Alaskan, of which prototypes were shown on auto shows last year. The new Mercedes, of which the launching date is still not set, will feature the well known 2,2 litre CDI engine. Word has it, that this proven engine will be coupled to a seven speed autobox. we’re quite convinced that versions featuring a manual gearbox will be available as well. Same goes for a lighter engine.
