Robust and compelling.
The X-Class is robust through and through; it can carry more than 1000 kg load and pull trailers with a weight of up to 3500 kg. For this it requires a sturdy and firm basic structure. That's why we have built our pickup on a ladder frame made of high-quality steel. So feel free to load up: with tools, machines, material or sports and leisure equipment. Even when driving far from the beaten track or surfaced roads, the robust basis helps you to get through unscathed. Optionally, a stainless steel technical underride guard panel will protect your engine, transmission and exhaust system off-road when driving over obstacles.
If the hills and dales could talk, they would sing the praises of the X-Class. With all-wheel drive and various all-wheel modes, off-road gearbox ratio and optional rear axle differential lock, you can be sure of covering rough terrain with ease. The generous ground clearance of 202 mm – up to 222 mm upon request – gives the terrain lots of space under the vehicle. If you have a sense of adventure, depending on the surface, the X-Class will climb gradients of up to approx. 100 % and remain drive stable at lateral inclinations of up to approx. 49.8°. This means off-road trips offer even more driving pleasure.
Get in, start and notice the full driving power even at low engine speeds. DYNAMIC SELECT gives you a choice of 5 drive programs, offering a comfortable driving style, optimised off-road characteristics or a sporty or efficient drive. In the manual DYNAMIC SELECT mode you shift gears yourself via the steering wheel gearshift paddles.
The exposed wheel arches with the wide-tyred wheels not only look impressive, with their broad track width they also contribute towards the high transverse dynamics of the X-Class. Just like the agile graduated multi-link wheel suspension on the rear axle. And so with every corner the anticipation for the next one rises and movement becomes driving pleasure.
"Pickup" – we take that literally: the easy-access load area holds more than 1000 kg of your work or sports equipment – even dirty and wet. There is even enough space between the wheel wells to accommodate a Europallet loaded sideways. If the cargo has rough edges, the bedliner can help prevent scratches and paint damage. Tie-downs help to keep everything securely in place. And if it is getting to be late once again, the LED lights of the load bed make working easier. Should you be faced with even more demanding tours, the towing capacity of up to 3500 kg gives you more options – including pulling a boat or horse trailer.
Even when things are rough outside, the X-Class pampers with hallmark Mercedes-Benz comfort. The KEYLESS-GO access and drive authorisation system as well as the Hill-Start Assist ensure a relaxed climbing aboard and starting. During the journey, the air-conditioning system or the optional THERMOTRONIC automatic climate control regulates the temperature. Information and entertainment is provided by the COMAND Online, Audio 20 USB and Audio 20 CD modern radio and navigation systems with the connectivity services of Mercedes me connect in the vehicle. Thanks to the comfort suspension as well as the individually adjustable seats for driver and passenger long journeys are comfortably overcome. Electrically adjustable seats equipped with lumbar support and seat heating are optionally available. Once you reach your destination, the Parking package with 360° camera makes parking and manoeuvring easy. Thanks to the intuitive operating and display concept all of these comfort functions are easy to operate.
The X-Class shows character: the powerdomes on the bonnet, the front visual underride guard and the exposed wheel arches impress at first glance. After opening the doors you are met by a stylish interior with a horizontally structured cockpit. The clearly differentiated PURE, PROGRESSIVE and POWER Lines – combined with the stylish Genuine Accessories – make the pickup even more your X-Class. As do the 48.3 cm (19-inch) light-alloy wheels and the LED High Performance headlamps in a typical flare design. There are 2 colour concepts in black leather or nut brown leather to choose from in the POWER Line. The dashboard and beltline panels finished with ARTICO man-made leather as well as the aluminium and wood grain trim elements are tailored to the high-quality leather appointments.
With its robust design, the X-Class offers a solid basis for exemplary safety. Even more so when numerous safety features are factored in: a range of dynamic handling control and braking systems – such as ESP® with trailer stabilisation – can help to detect and if necessary defuse critical driving situations. Furthermore, assistance systems such as Lane Keeping Assist and Active Brake Assist can assist the driver in tiring or critical driving situations. And in case of an emergency, other features include the 7 standard airbags and the Mercedes-Benz emergency call system.
