New teaser video of upcoming Mercedes-Benz X-Class released

The production version of Mercedes-Benz's Concept X-Class pickup will soon be making its global debut. It is set to be revealed on July 18 and the automaker recently released a new teaser of the upcoming premium pickup.

Based on the video released by Mercedes-Benz, the all-new X-Class will have a slightly altered look compared to the concept version that was shown back in October 2016. Starting at the front, it appears the pickup gets a slightly smaller grill, along with larger headlights that come with daytime running lights. A large sportbar is also present on the bed of the truck, as well as new LED taillights.

Images of the interior were not provided but it's highly likely it will be borrow styling cues from current models like the G Class or E Class.

Last March 2017, our spies were able to spot the upcoming X-Class with what looks to be the correct body panels. Side-by-side with the teaser vehicle, the prototype heavily resembles the pickup shown on the recent video. In addition, this may also indicate that Mercedes-Benz went to the trouble of making the X-Class more distinct from the Navara from which it is based on.

A variety of turbo-diesels are expected to power the all-new X-Class. This include a 3.0-liter V6 that will supposedly produce 265 and 620 Nm of torque and smaller four-cylinders with twin-turbo aspiration. 4WD is expected to be available via Mercedes-Benz's 4MATIC system.
