Scheduled to go in to production late 2017, the X-Class concept images and footage show a stylish, but rugged looking pickup. As this concept is in the late stages of development, there's no word yet on what engine will be inside the Mercedes X-Class, but if the company wants to compete with other premium truck providers, it will need to be powerful. It's tipped to have permanent all-wheel drive and high-torque V6 engines, which would make this a good contender in the segment. Two chassis options have been shown in the images - one city-friendly model and a more rugged model, presumably to be aimed at demanding businesses or those who love the outdoors. We'll likely have more information about the Mercedes X-Class mid 2017.
