Mercedes-Benz X-Class is pickup truck. Nothing strange about it, because Mercedes does offer vans and trucks. There’s also nothing extraordinary in the fact the X-Class was made in cooperation with Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance. Sharing components or even entire cars across different brands is nothing new. However whereas Nissan Navara is just a workhorse, I expect more from Mercedes-Benz. Does the X-Class have the X factor?

      Sliding window is a 1980s American pick up truck designed. Specifically made just in case you needed to take piss just slide it open and whip it out. 🤣🤣🤣

      This is a pretty ugly truck as far as exterior. The interior is great but for a pickup pretty damn unnecessary and lack practicality.

      This is a strange looking truck overall.

      Basically, you are buying this only for the badge, and very expensive too.

      This truck looks almost identical to the older generation of the Nissan Titan.

      @Marek Drives but the Nissan Navarro has the body structure of the older model Nissan Titan.

      Sliding window when you have a dog in the back is my guess. That's what I've bought the truck for.

      That’s a disappointment. I’d like to see how the fiat pick up compares as it’s basically an L200. Well it is an L200 but looks to have a better more stylish cabin? And ye merc column shift has always been a terrible design! Hilux is the bench mark but I think the navara is next best. Thoughts? I do love to look at a ranger though....

      This is essentially a nissan navara. I was hoping that the would make something on the mb unimog dna or something to rival the toyota landcruiser v8 diesel. Id rather buy the hilux than this nissan.

      For the price Mercedes is asking , I'm to assume the seats has extremely comfortable car like seats............Well.......Does it?

      Please tell me it's luxurious. I mean comfortable . Not like a navara , much much more comfortable than a navara , because that's what I'm expecting!!!

      I suspect the sliding window allows skis to be carried inside when you have a canopy on the rear. Its a guess. Of course unless you are exceptionally tall a pair of skis should really fit in the tray. Maybe they thought it would allow unobstructed use of the centre rearview mirror when the unheated rear window ices over and the reversing camera is covered in mud :)

      This truck must seen very pointless in Europe,but take a look at the markets Mercedes selected at launch and then it makes sense. This truck would be a perfect luxury vehicle and top of the range in South America, Africa and Australia, pickup trucks like this one are used for everything: police cars, work vehicles, camper trucks, towing rig and of course, luxury sedans. Their versatility is why these places are filled to the brim with Toyota Hiluesx, VW Amaroks, Ford Rangers, Nissan Navaras and Mitsubishi L200s.

      Totally agree, but I'm reviewing this car in Europe, where (as you said) it makes no sense whatsoever. Especially since it offers little more, than Mercedes badge.

      Mercedes dropped the ball, they should have made a true luxury pick-up, like one based on the g wagon, something unique to the brand, and not this me too thing.

      The sliding window is to have access to stuff inside the rear canopy. About 20 years ago cars in South Africa and Australia had hard canopies as accessories that would be open to the cabin.

      That sliding rear window has served me well! In the US, most truck owners tend to own detached homes. Most of us want to maximize the utility of these vehicles to handle towing, hauling, off-road activities and work! These pass-thru windows come in handy when attempting to transport 2x4s, 2x6s, 2x8s, etc.... That are too long (10'&12'ft) for most short bed trucks! I won't even look at a truck if it lacks this feature!

      The sliding windows is there so you can shoot people who are tailgating you. That way you don't break your window.
      I guess it's something for the US market and rusia, not so for you Europeans :-)

      Sliding rear window b'cose Ford T150 have. I think pick ups in Europe only used somewhere in industries- like a port area, may be in mining, definately not im private use///=.....Noticed Mercedes try to expand himselve for pickup and Peugeot Partner\Citroen Berlingo soil, but unsucessful.....

      Just noticed that the test truck has no mudflaps. These are essential on pickups, they really are. They are also standard fit on many other pickups, such as the Ford Ranger and the whole Nissan Navara range. So Mercedes charge about 30% more than Nissan for the badge and dashboard, yet have the cheek to charge extra again for flaps, the load liner and the fourth and fifth year warranty, again standard on Navara.  Let me think about that for a minute……………. Hmm! Not impressed!
      The interior storage, as you mention, is essential for this class of vehicle. I need a place for my phone, animal medicines and vaccines, syringes and needles for the same, paper records for the above and breeding records, head torches and wiping clothes and gloves for dirty hands. Here there is surprisingly little thought or provision for storage that I expect and get with my Ford Ranger.
      Did you have a look at the chassis and running gear? Did you notice the trailing arms on the rear axle? Made out of paper thin pressed steel.  The chassis rails themselves? Typically Nissan and peppered with big holes around the rear wheel arch area especially in order to let dirt and salty moisture inside the box sections in order to rust them out for a finite and relatively short life. You don't get that with a HiLux, believe me. 
      As you probably know, the previous model Navara is notorious for chassis that break in half just behind the double-cab. They rust terribly and the chassis is not particularly rigid, the combination of which causes total failures at between six and ten years of age. Nissan have been buying failed ones back with quite a generous allowance plus 20% off new ones in the UK, fair play to them. I doubt whether Mercedes would be so fair, but that is just my suspicion having dealt with them previously.
