2018 Mercedes-Benz X-Class Powerful Adventurer Release Date
Mercedes-Benz is hard at work again astonishing the world with new products and ideas. This time, it is a pickup truck. The 2018 Mercedes-Benz X-Class to be precise. After its release date this time next year, the Mercedes-Benz X-Class will be available in two trims, the Stylish Explorer and the Powerful Adventurer. The Stylish Explorer will be made to look nice on the street, but the Powerful Adventurer will be an off-road beast, possibly sparking a rivalry against the Ford F-150 Raptor.
Powerful Adventurer Exterior Design
The best comparison we can make for the X-Class is that it looks like a skinny G-Class with a bed in the back. More specifically, the X-Class Powerful Explorer can be compared to the G550 4×4². It has deep jagged curves, huge rubber tires, and a winch on the front for pulling your friends, or yourself, out of the mud.
Possible Engine Options
Mercedes-Benz didn’t say anything yet about the interior of the truck or what will be hiding under the hood. Because the X-Class Powerful Adventurer will be made to tackle tough terrain and pull trailers, It will probably only be available with a V8 or V12 engine, much like the G-Class it resembles. As an X550, X63, or X65, we are looking at a range of 416 to 621 horsepower with even more torque and a powerful 7-speed transmission.
Unfortunately for us, the X-Class will only be available in Latin America, South Africa, Australia, and Europe during its first year of production. In these locations, dealerships can expect to get them by this time next year. For the rest of us Americans, we will probably have to wait three to five years so that Mercedes-Benz can build up a demand in the states.
