Ride of the Week: The Mercedes-Benz X-Class Pickup Truck

Don’t panic. What you’re seeing is real — a Mercedes with a pickup bed. Mercedes Benz introduced its luxury X-Class truck at a swank reception in South Africa, but don’t get too excited — you won’t be seeing the X-Class in the US. A joint partnership between Daimler and Renault-Nissan, Mercedes touts the X-Class as “the first pickup from a premium manufacturer.” With all-wheel drive, a premium interior, a bed, and even an optional manual transmission, the X-Class checks all the truck boxes — although it’s certainly no Unimog. The X-Class comes to Europe in November 2017.
