Not many people took it seriously when Mercedes-Benz thought of making a pickup truck and all of them are even confused now that it’s actually happening.
Earlier this year we saw that the lineup of 2017 was leaked from Mercedes-Benz and the pickup truck was in pipeline. Earlier this week, there is also confirmation about an unveiling of the same model on 25th of October in flesh this year.
The unveiling of this final concept will happen in the country of Volvo, Sweeden. But this will be the concept and not the production version of same. To see the final production version we will have to wait a little longer, maybe till the end of this year.
Mercedes-Benz Pickup Truck Name?
The pickup truck from Mercedes-Benz will be called as GLT-Class and it will also spawn the Nissan Navara NP300 body on the ladder frame. This same body on the ladder is also featured by Renault Alaskan, a clear conclusion of this new pickup truck will have a proven design.
Under the hood, Mercedes-Benz will put a 3 liter turbocharged diesel motor to pull this beast and of course, a 4X4 system will be in place. We imagine that this will be the best pickup truck in the market in its class.
Mercedes-Benz has released a teaser video of this new pickup truck and it doesn’t tell us more than this will be the sexiest pickup truck in the market. The front end of the truck features a very aggressive design of Mercedes-Benz that is also followed in current day Mercedes cars and SUVS.
