It confidently defies forces of nature, its distinctive design draws attention to it. It is so robust and powerful that it is confidently underway even in more difficult terrain and is so spectacularly styled that you will stand out even in the urban jungle. It is just as convincing as a functional and reliable partner in everyday work as it is a companion for spontaneous leisure adventures. Look forward to a vehicle that brings lifeworlds together in a completely new way: welcome to the X-Class – the Mercedes-Benz amongst pickups!
The X-Class is robust through and through: it carries more than 1000 kg load and pulls trailers with a weight of up to 3500 kg. For this it requires a stable and firm basic structure. That's why we have built our pickup on a ladder-type frame made from high-quality steel. So feel free to pile plenty on: tools, machines, material or sports and leisure devices. Even on drives away from surfaced roads the robust basis helps you to get through unscathed. Upon request, a sump shield made from stainless steel will protect your engine, transmission and exhaust system offroad when driving over obstacles.
If rough and smooth could speak: they would be impressed by the X-Class. If you switch from the rear-wheel drive to the 4MATIC all-wheel drive and activate the "low" all-wheel mode, the low-range gearbox and the optional differential lock on the rear axle, you will happily get through even more challenging terrain. The generous ground clearance of 202 mm – up to 222 mm upon request – gives the terrain lots of space under the vehicle. If you have a sense of adventure, depending on the surface, the X-Class will climb gradients of up to approx. 100 % and remain drive stable at angles of up to approx. 49.8°. This means offroad trips offer even more driving pleasure. For rides on easier terrain or more difficult road conditions the second "high" all-wheel mode can be activated.
Premium ambience – now also for pickups: above all with the leather appointments in nut brown or black and the large trim element in the horizontally structured cockpit the X-Class achieves a completely new exclusivity for pickups. During the journey you enjoy typical Mercedes-Benz comfort with intuitively positioned controls, modern multimedia systems and the connectivity services of Mercedes me connect. On hot trips the air conditioning of the interior, the versatile, adjustable and comfortable front seats and the comfort suspension help keep a cool head. And if it gets tight, you can keep an overview thanks to the Parking package with 360° camera.
You will stand out! The unmistakable Mercedes-Benz design of the X-Class draws attention like a magnet. The imposing front with centrally positioned Mercedes star, visual sump shield, powerdomes on the bonnet and distinctive headlamp design – optionally in LED technology – gives the pickup a dominant appearance. Just like the clear line of the side design and the exposed wheel arches with light-alloy wheels up to a size of 48.3 cm (19 inch). As individual as its trips are also the equipment options of the X-Class with the 3 clearly differentiated PURE, PROGRESSIVE and POWER lines as well as many individualisation options.
Genuine accessories specially developed for the X-Class, such as the distinctive style bar or the robust side bars, the hardtop or the hardcover, underlines the expressive character of the vehicle and makes the X-Class your pickup, as there might only be one like it.
Get in, start and notice the full driving power even at low engine speeds. The exposed wheel arches with the wide-tyred wheels not only look impressive, with their broad track width they also contribute towards the high transverse dynamics of the X-Class. Just like the agile graduated multi-link wheel suspension on the rear axle. And so with every corner the anticipation for the next one rises and movement becomes driving pleasure.
