Mercedes-Benz GLT Pickup Spied Cruising The Streets Of Stuttgart

The upcoming Mercedes-Benz GLT pickup truck has been filmed in the midst of testing once again, this time on the streets new the company’s headquarters in Stuttgart, Germany.

Set to hit the market sometime next year, the GLT will share its platform with the Nissan NP300 Navara and in all probability, share some of its engines with its Nissan brother. That means a 2.3-liter CDi engine with up to 190 hp and 450 Nm (331 lb-ft) of torque could be available along with a second engine from Merc’s range.

Design wise, it is apparent that the GLT will adopt similar dimensions to the Navara. However, apart from a new grille and headlights, it should also feature some bespoke body panels, too, that’ll differentiate it from the Nissan.

Despite North America’s love for pickup trucks, Mercedes-Benz has yet to confirm if the model will be offered there. At this stage, we know it will be available in Europe, South Africa, Latin America and Australia.
