    Mercedes-Benz has just lifted the veil on its very first van: the Class X.

    After you have leveled its range towards the bottom with the CLA and GLA to capture new market share, here Mercedes-Benz launches in the niche market of pickup trucks.

    The new
    Mercedes-Benz X-Class is the result of a partnership with Nissan, which provides the platform for his Navara. Aesthetically it is very similar to his version of the conceptual design unveiled in the fall of 2016.
