Mercedes-Benz X-Class Has Potentials Of Reaching North American Market
When the Mercedes-Benz X-Class made its debut late last year, many people became really excited with the automaker's first ever pickup truck. Following this, many were also disappointed when news circulated that the luxurious X-Class pickup truck would not make it to the U.S. market. Given the high demand however, it would appear that the Mercedes-Benz X-Class has big potentials of reaching the North American auto market after all.
Mercedes-Benz X-Class: What Needs To Be Considered
According to CNET, the automaker is still pondering on whether or not it will really bring the Mercedes-Benz X-Class to the North American auto market. "We are watching developments very closely, and we will take a decision at the appropriate time," said Volker Mornhinweg, head of Mercedes-Benz Vans division during a press conference in Stuttgard, Germany. Apparently, one of the biggest concerns of the automaker is whether its main plant for trucks in Argentina would be able to meet the demands. In addition, the automaker also has to consider other factors such as the threat of higher border tax and how it will remain profitable if it brings the X-Class pickup to the U.S.
Mercedes-Benz X-Class: The Competition
If Mercedes-Benz decides to bring the X-Class to the North American market, it would not be the first brand to introduce a new truck based on the demands of the U.S. consumers. According to report, the Mercedes-Benz X-Class would be competing against the likes of Toyota, General Motors and Honda as these automakers have also introduced new mid-sized pickup trucks in the recent years.
Mercedes-Benz X-Class: The Wait Begins
Given the fact that the automaker is still waiting for developments in the market, all consumers can do at this point is wait and see how things will turn out. It would certainly be interesting to see if the Mercedes-Benz X-Class pickup makes it to the North American auto market and also compete against the Ford F-150, which is considered to be America's number one pickup truck.
