Delta 4×4 Creates An Insane Mercedes X-Class Off-Roader

German tuning company delta4x4 has unveiled an modified Mercedes-Benz X-Class which makes the pickup much more capable off-road than the standard vehicle.

The most important upgrades made to the X-Class is the fitment of a new suspension that dramatically boosts the ride height to ensure the car doesn’t scrap the ground when climbing across rocks or while tackling difficult inclines and declines. We don’t have specifics regarding the components, but images of the X-Class jumping up in the air like a Raptor-badged Ford model indicates the shocks and springs can deal with a fair amount of abuse.

To complement the new ride height, delta4x4 has installed a new set of off-road wheels and tires with sizes ranging from 17-inches all the way up to 23-inches. Flared fenders, a large LED light bar on the roof, a bull bar and skid plate upfront as well as bed bars at the rear have also been fitted.

Modifying Merc’s pickup truck is slowly gaining popularity; only last week, we brought you images of an overhauled example from Carlex Design.

Nevertheless, the X-Class caused much controversy from the moment it was announced and a report in mid-July claimed that Daimler would axe the luxurious pickup truck citing slow sales and its eagerness to cut costs. Last year, it only sold 16,700 units in Europe, Australia, and South Africa – and while we don’t pertain to have knowledge of their targets, we presume those numbers didn’t bring that many smiles in Stuttgart.
