Mercedes Benz Announces New Pickup Truck Offering
Wait, what? Did I read that right? Mercedes-Benz makes a Pickup truck? Yes, that is correct. No, this is not April Fools day. Granted, I would not expect to see this at your local feed store anytime soon, but it is actually being made. It is made to compete in a market that Lincoln and Cadillac offererd years ago and found to be less than successful. Full size trucks dominate the family vehicle market – especially here in Texas. If you still think this is a joke, click here to read the official writeup from Mercedes-Benz.
Mercedes-Benz showed off two versions of the truck, called the X-class, at a presentation in Stockholm, Sweden. The first Mercedes Pickup shown was outfitted for off-road use. The other truck was more of a high-end luxury model with a wood-trimmed interior and features you would expect in a Mercedes. Customers will have lots of features to choose from to outfit their truck with options normally seen in high end luxury cars.
Luxury, Not A Work Truck
