Mercedes X-Class Spied With A Longer Rear Bed

Mercedes recently used the Geneva Motor Show to introduce a more powerful version of the X-Class and it appears more changes are on the horizon.

Recently caught undergoing testing in Northern Europe, this heavily camouflaged X-Class is virtually identical to the standard model but it features a significantly longer rear bed. There’s no word on how long the bed is, but the standard box measures 1587 mm (62.4 inches) long. However, considering the X-Class is based on the Nissan Navara, the new bed may measure approximately 1,788 mm (70.3 inches) long.

Regardless of the final dimensions, the longer rear bed should help to improve the X-Class’ practicality. It should also make the model more appealing to customers who routinely haul long items such as drywall and wood.

Since the bed is the only thing that appears to have been changed, engine options should carryover. As a result, we can expect a 2.3-liter four-cylinder diesel with outputs of 163 PS (120 kW) and 190 PS (140 kW).

There should also be an X 350d 4MATIC variant which features a 3.0-liter six-cylinder diesel engine that produces 258 PS (190 kW) and 550 Nm (405 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a seven-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel drive system which enables the short box truck to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 7.9 seconds before hitting a top speed of 205 km/h (127 mph).

    Horrible. They should’ve developed this in house. The production spec they fully revealed looks like such a bad rebadge.
