According to numerous reports, X-Class pickup will become available with a new transmission and a 4Matic AWD system, once it arrives. Mercedes will most likely showcase its new model this March at the Geneva Motor Show.
2021 Mercedes-Benz X-Class Exterior Looks Impressive
The 2021 Mercedes-Benz X-Class has been caught on camera in a double-cab configuration. The new model looks impressive in terms of design. For a start, styling is quite astonishing and very modern. If you are looking for a stylish pickup truck, this could be it. According to the latest reports, X-Class will arrive as a mid-size model and it will offer a long list of standard amenities. The goal is to put this model in front of its rivals in many categories. On the spy photos, we can see gorgeous 17-inch wheels that are looking premium.
We still don’t know which underpinnings are used, but Mercedes could borrow the platform from Nissan Navara. The arriving pickup truck looks very unique and it will become available in numerous trim levels. Upper trims will look even better and more luxurious.
Cabin Provides More Modern Touches
The interior details are not available yet. New 2021 Mercedes-Benz X-Class should provide a lot of features that have been presented on the concept. The German automaker is giving one last shot with X-Class pickup and it can’t fail with it. Inside the cabin, you can expect more luxury than the rest of the competition has to offer. A 5.4-inch touchscreen will be offered as standard and Mercedes already lacks behind its rivals.
On the other hand, steering wheel, leather upholstery and list of standard features are really great. Moreover, the X-Class model comes with so many modern touches and plenty of high-quality materials. Even the base trim level should be astonishing. If you want more luxury, Wi-Fi, push-button start and additional safety aids are optional on the base model.
Once it arrives, the upcoming 2021 Mercedes-Benz X-Class should offer two engine options. Interestingly, both units are diesel. The first version is a 2.3-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel engine. It delivers 187 horsepower and 405 lb-ft of torque. A seven-speed automatic transmission is available as the only gearbox option. Furthermore, Mercedes will most likely introduce an optional 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6 engine.
This powertrain will produce even more power. On the other hand, its fuel efficiency will be significantly lower. However, exact engine specs are not available at the moment. The optional output will deploy the same 7-speed transmission as the standard diesel unit. Lastly, the X-Class pickup truck comes with a 4Matic all-wheel-drive setup that is standard on all trim levels.
