After so many gossips that the Mercedes-Benz X-Class has been discontinued, the latest news assures us otherwise. The fresh new 2022 Mercedes-Benz X-Class continues its production, and we can expect this model to debut sometime next year. The new generation, besides many exterior improvements, will also introduce a more modern cabin.
Unlike the outgoing model, the new truck will ride on the modified platform, reportedly larger by a few inches. Generally, thanks to a few inches more, we should expect a more comfortable cabin. Like the previous generation, the new one should also be able to fit comfortably five passengers.
2022 Mercedes-Benz X-Class Exterior Changes
The forthcoming 2022 Mercedes-Benz X-Class pickup truck will be refreshed, but don’t expect significant changes compared to its predecessor. Generally, according to many reports, the new pickup truck will keep the same attractive design language. If you didn’t know, this beautiful truck shares many elements with the Nissan Navara model. Basically, both ones are sitting on the same platform.
However, the new Mercedes-Benz X-Class for 2022 will most likely feature a revised front fascia with a more prominent grille, and slimmer LED headlights. The same treatment we also saw on the latest GLA model. On the back, the new X-Class also looks unique, featuring a muscular bumper and great taillights graphics.
Interior Will Host More Techs
On the inside, the 2022 Mercedes-Benz X-Class will surely offer more comfort than its predecessor. So, if you like pickup trucks, this is a comfortable one. In addition, the Mercedes-Benz X-Class, thanks to a larger platform, should offer a more spacious cabin than before. The interior can fit five passengers, and it’s very technology-rich. Stepping into this truck, you’ll first notice an attractive dashboard that hosts a touch-sensitive COMAND infotainment system and HVAC controls.
However, most of the electronic goodies are available on upper trims. For example, choosing the top-of-the-line Power trim, buyers will get a stitched faux leather applied to the dashboard, aluminum and wood trim, and the inner door panels.
It’s more than certain that the 2022 Mercedes-Benz X-Class will offer great performances. Unfortunately, Mercedes didn’t reveal any information about its engine. Nevertheless, some reports suggest the same powertrain options that consist of gasoline and diesel engines.
The 2.3-liter four-cylinder gasoline unit produces 164 horsepower, while the turbodiesel engine delivers 187 hp. The most likely new outcome is the V6 engine that also powers the Nissan Navara. This mill under the Navara, produces 255 horsepower and 405 lb-ft of torque. Still, we must wait for the official statement from Mercedes. It’s more than likely that Mercedes will offer six-speed manual and seven-speed automatic options.
2022 Mercedes-Benz X-Class Price, Release Date
The new 2022 Mercedes-Benz X-Class will be most likely introduced this year, while sales could start next year. This luxury pickup truck is very competitive in the mid-size segment, and it’s featuring unique styling and interior design.
Reportedly, expect the new generation to cost more than its rival Ford Ranger that starts at $25,000. Also in the same segment there is one of the models that cost less, the Toyota Hilux.
