Mercedes has released the first teaser video of the X-Class ahead of its official unveiling on July 18th.
Previewed by the X-Class concepts, the production model promises to combine luxury and elegance with everyday practicality.
The teaser video only show us a few glimpses of the truck but we can see it will have a nearly vertical grille that is flanked by LED headlights and a silver skid plate. Moving further back, the model has been equipped with curvaceous bodywork, metallic window trim, and alloy wheels.
Designers also installed bulging fenders, chrome door handles, and vertical LED taillights. Other features include running boards, a roof rack, and a rear roll bar.
Mercedes has remained tight-lipped about specifications but the model will be based on the body-on-frame chassis that underpins the Nissan Navara and Renault Alaskan. Despite this, the truck will have unique styling, bespoke suspension tuning, and a more luxurious interior.
Details are elusive but reports have indicated the X-Class will be offered with a variety of four- and six-cylinder engines. Rear-wheel drive is expected to be standard but all-wheel drive will be optional.
It remains unclear if the truck will be offered in the United States as the company initially rejected the idea before seeing the success of the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon. The company is now building a case for the truck and market research will likely determine whether or not the X-Class comes to America.
