Mercedes-Benz News And Updates: X-Class Pickup Is Not Yet Coming To US Market
Mercedes-Benz has earlier unveiled its first luxury pickup truck called the X-Class. This resulted to pickup enthusiasts getting excited about it and have anxiously waited for details regarding its availability in certain markets including the U.S. The answer is finally out and unfortunately, the X-Class pickup is not yet coming to the U.S market.
X-Class Pickup Is Not Yet Coming To U.S Market
Road and Track reported that the Mercedes-Benz X-Class Luxury Pickup is set to hit the market in 2017 but will only be available in South Africa, Australia, South America and Europe but not in North America as stated by Mercedes-Benz USA CEO, Dietmar Exler. It was also mentioned in the same report that the automaker is apparently not sure if it has the proper tools to go up against competitors like Chrysler, GM , Ford and what they bring to the market.
Will X-Class Ever Come To U.S Market?
According to a report from Motor Authority, not bringing the X-Class to U.S market seems to be the plan at present. It was stated that since this is the first pickup truck in the automaker's line up, Mercedes will still check out how things will go after the market launch. There is still a possibility of the X-Class coming over to the U.S market but there is no telling when that might be. Mercedes refused to say anything more about it as reported.
Open To All Possibilities
Hope is not yet lost that the X-Class may someday make its way to North American auto market. "Once the next version of the truck comes out - when we see the next iteration- there might be an opportunity to bring it to the U.S in the medium and the long-term" said Exler in a report. With that being said, interested buyers don't necessarily have to count the possibility out just yet. In any case, there will always be the option of importing the X-Class from South America and other places where it will be available.
