Mercedes-Benz Upcoming Pickup May Be Based on the New Nissan Navara

Mercedes’ recently announced global midsize pickup truck may be developed together with Nissan, which has a long experience in the segment.

At least that’s what a report from The Wall Street Journal claims, citing sources familiar with the matter. The insiders said Mercedes-Benz plans to build the truck in cooperation with Nissan, using the platform of the Navara – most likely the latest-generation model. Furthermore, the Mercedes-Benz pickup would be built at Nissan plants.

The sources said talks are at an advanced stage. “The details are still being worked out,” one of the sources told the business newspaper, adding that Mercedes-Benz would use the Navara platform, but would provide “everything with which the customer comes in contact.” That includes the interior, the powertrains, the design and other elements.

Late last month Mercedes-Benz announced plans to launch the world’s first premium midsize pickup truck before 2020. The vehicle would be aimed at markets like Latin America, South Africa, Australia, and Europe and would combine practicality with typical attributes of Mercedes-Benz passenger cars sich as comfort, safety, and design.

The automaker also released a rendering that offers a clear idea about the design of the upcoming Mercedes-Benz pickup truck.
