2019 Mercedes X-Class pickup truck will be launch in November 2017. In less than two months a model will be available on the market that is a direct competitor of the 2018 Nissan Navara pickup. The new X-Class is wrongly labeled as the first pickup truck model of this brand. Mercedes had a pickup truck on the Latin American market as early as the seventies of the last century. Nevertheless, attempting to combine the premium class with the convenience of a pickup truck model did not fully come to life.
The then La pickup, which was the name under which it sold this model was completely different from all other models. It looked very luxurious, the interior was also very high quality. A lot of similarities, the 2019 Mercedes X-Class will have with this model, but also with a new Navara pickup truck model with which it shares a large number of components.

The company came out with official vehicle data, specifications and prices for the new 2019 Mercedes X-Class pickup truck.
