Mercedes-Benz X-Class

India-bound 2017 Maybachs reach European dealerships

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz X-Class pickup truck has finally, for real, landed in its final form at a blowout shindig in Cape Town, South Africa.

Mercedes said it expects demand for mid-sized trucks to grow by 43% over the next decade, according to Bloomberg.

We'll drive the new X-Class in October and the first United Kingdom customers will get their cars before the end of the year but to whet our appetites, Mercedes has given us a passenger ride around a test track and over some challenging off-road terrain in its first ever pick-up truck. Argentina and Brazil will follow at the beginning of 2019.

The pick-up is a new market for Mercedes with the X-Class taking aim at class leaders like the Nissan Navara and Mitsubishi L200 - but adding luxury touches never seen before.

$5B in Student Loan Debt Could Be Gone Thanks to Missing Paperwork
When borrowers do show up to fight, the cases are not so straightforward. Missing paperwork could wipe out billions... "We want no part of that".

The X-Class will go on sale in Europe this November and German pricing starts at €37,294. A 2.3L diesel with two two power outputs is available: In the X 220 d it generates 163 hp and in the X 250 d it generates 190 hp.

This post is being updated.

It will be offered with a host of diesel engines ranging from a 161bhp X220d to a X250d 4Matic with "selectable four-wheel drive", Autocar reports.

In countries with access to the X-class, there will be a number of powertrain options. The carmaker had previewed the pick-up both off-road and on-road personas and revealed in two iterations, the Mercedes-Benz X class great adventure and X class stylish explorer.

Amazon Prepared Meal Kit Service Possibly Launching Soon
The application, reported by the Times this weekend, sent Blue Apron's stock tumbling 11.8 percent to $6.49 a share Monday. As of reporting the news, Amazon's stock continues to rise and Blue Apron's is seeing a notable drop off.

This is Mercedes-Benz's first attempt at the popular and very demanding dual-cab ute class, and so it probably comes as no surprise the Stuttgart-based company turned to one of its partners to help come up with a product, using an already-developed platform.

With Audio 20 CD and COMAND Online multimedia systems, and in addition to the central control unit, the X-Class also contains the multifunction touchpad familiar from the passenger vehicle model series.

The top-of-the-range model of Mercedes-Benz takes another big step towards autonomous driving and elevates Intelligent Drive to the next level.

Power will be delivered via a choice of rear-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive through Nissan's six speed manual or seven speed automatic.

The Cambridges touch down in Poland
Landing in Warsaw, George and Charlotte appeared curious, snapped with their faces pressed up against the plane windows. This marks the second royal tour for Princess Charlotte , who accompanied her parents and brother to Canada last fall.

Likewise, permanent all-wheel drive will be available as an option from next year, along with a locking differential on the rear axle, somewhat boosting the X-Class's credibility. It is noted that most of the exterior is borrowed from other cars in the line Mercedes.
