Several gasoline and diesel engines will be on the menu, and the maximum towing capacity will reach 7000 pounds.
Mercedes-Benz does not intend to offer the X-Class in North America anytime soon, preferring to keep its new pickup for Australia, Brazil and South Africa, among others. And for those who are wondering, there are no AMG version in the works…
