Would You Spend $122,000 On A Mercedes X-Class Pickup With Maybach-Inspired Looks?

Making its first foray in the segment with the X-Class, Mercedes-Benz believes it has created a brand new niche: that of the premium pickup truck.

Of course, being based on a utilitarian model like the Nissan Navara, somewhat bruises Mercedes‘ narrative, but that’s another story. The Germans claim that the X-Class offers both excellent off-roading capabilities and a luxurious interior, along with an open bed at the rear to haul various cargo.

But how would an even more upscale model look like? Answering this question is Carlex Design, with a complete makeover kit for the Mercedes-Benz X-Class inspired by the brand’s Maybach cars. It costs a whopping €105,000 ($122,634) for the base version, which (at least) includes the cost of the vehicle.

On the outside, the Carlex-tuned X-Class features a front grille and wheels inspired by the Maybach S650 Coupe, along with a carbon fiber body kit. The latter includes new bumpers, wheel arches, rear light frames, roof-mounted spoiler and bonnet cover. Carbon fiber side mirror casings are also part of the package, along with the teak-covered bed and special Limited Edition emblems and stickers.

Opening the door reveals a posher cabin with Recaro seats, leather trim on the seats and door panels, leather and wood inserts in the dashboard and reshaped steering wheel, Alcantara headliner, and more emblems and laser-engraved motifs.

With its extra bits fitted by Carlex, this X-Class is named the Yachting Edition – and while you miss the not-so-subtle lettering on the lower bodywork, you’ll definitely notice that small yacht it is towing.

    Nope, it’s still a fancy Nissan Navara. Just get the regular Navara and save the money. You could get another Mercedes/Mercedes AMG for whatever change you have left.

  • TheBelltower

    Stickers, decals, pie-tin wheels, plastic fender flares… evidently Carlex Design called the eleven year old me to find out what “fancy” is.

  • Nordschleife

    Well the answer to this is no. In fact it’s a HELL NO.
