All big brands these days have continually launched their pick-up trucks and Mercedes now wants to profit from the growing market for such heavy vehicles worldwide.
Attributes of the pickup truck:
The pickup truck is set to have the most ideal engine features as of those in the most up to date Pick-up trucks from other companies. It is expected to have a 2.3-litre, turbocharged four cylinder diesel engine capable of producing 188 horsepower. The truck might be named as X-Class but officially no name has been decided yet.
