Mercedes-Benz rolls into a new frontier, entering the luxury pickup market with the unveiling of its new X-Class Concept. Offering a preview of the production model set to launch in late 2017, the truck shares its platform with the Nissan NP300 Navarawith, and manufacturing duties are also shared with Renault-Nissan's factories in Spain and Argentina. The X-Class's top model will boast a six-cylinder diesel engine with all-wheel drive, payload capability of more than 1.1 tons and towing capacity of up to 3.5 tons. Sadly, there are no plans for a U.S. release. Instead, Mercedes is targeting Argentina, Brazil, South Africa, Australia/New Zealand, and Europe.
