Mercedes-Benz has revealed pricing for the V6-engined X350d variant of its its X-Class pickup truck: the range-topping X350d 4Matic, due for first deliveries in November, is priced at £38,350, or £46,020 after VAT.
It's only available in top-spec Power trim, although three specs are offered across the X-Class range: Pure, Progressive and Power, with even the entry-level Pure benefiting from automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, traffic sign recognition, a reversing camera and hill start assist as standard.
Starting at £27,310 without VAT - or £32,772 including it - the X-Class is priced at around £200 more than the Amarok, rising to £34,100 (£40,920 including VAT) for the next-up X250D auto - almost the exact same price as its closest rival, the Volkswagen Amarok.
Progressive, priced £1200 above Pure, gets 17in alloys, heated mirrors and load-securing rails. The range-topping Power gets 18in alloys, part-synthetic-leather upholstery, LED tail-lights and keyless entry and start.
Mercedes first revealed its much-anticipated new premium pickup to the public at the Frankfurt motor show.
The X-Class is a five-seat, four-door crew cab pickup with a separate chassis, four engine options, as well as a choice of selectable or permanent four-wheel drive, and six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic transmission. As well as the three trims, the X-Class is offered with three varieties of dashboard finish, six upholstery options including two in leather.
