The new model follow’s after the ‘regular’ X 350d 4MATIC’s local launch in December last year. Differentiating the Edition 1 model from the various other X-Class models are a number of distinctive features and accessories.
Kicking off the alterations enjoyed by the Edition 1 are three available colors; kabara black, bering white, and rock grey. No matter which paint scheme customers go for, the car will include a black grille, black Three-Pointed Star badges, and black across the door handles, rear tailgate handle, exterior badges, roof rails, and beltline trim. Additionally, all X-Class Edition 1 models come with black 19-inch six-twin spoke alloy wheels.
The luxurious pickup truck also receives a bedliner and hard tonneau cover in the same finish as the exterior.
As for the cabin, Mercedes-Benz has outfitted the Edition 1 with unique floor mats, a chrome Edition 1 badge on the passenger side dash, leather heated seats as standard, an electric rear windowpane, and rear privacy glass.
Powering the Edition 1 is the same powertrain as the normal X 350d 4MATIC, namely a 3.0-liter six-cylinder diesel engine 254 hp 550 Nm (405 lb-ft) of torque that sends power to a 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive system with a low range reduction gear.
Local pricing starts at $87,500 ($61,127) before on-road costs. It remains to be seen if any markets other than Australia will receive the model.
