2019 Mercedes X-class Review, Changes, Specs

The 2019 Mercedes X-class will represent the second year model of the original first generation of this luxury truck. This truck came last year and it is the first vehicle of this kind from the famous German carmaker. So far, this brand was known for excellent sedans and crossover but this one expanded the offer significantly.

This product comes after company’s close cooperation with Nissan, which has several excellent trucks in its offer. So, although a Mercedes, this model actually has a lot in common with Nissan Navara. It rides on the same platform, uses some of Navara’s engines as well. Still, it is far more than a rebadged Nissan.

It comes an with an amazing level of comfort, its own design etc. Considering that this will be the second year of production, we don’t expect bigger changes. The 2019 X-class will continue in the pretty much same way.

The 2019 Mercedes X-class will continue without bigger changes. For a truck that came less a than a year ago, it seems pretty logical. This truck has a lot in common with Nissan Navara. It rides on the same platform, developed by the famous Japanese manufacturer. Still, Mercedes comes with plenty of unique characteristics. First of all, there is a completely new styling, which is inspired by the brand’s latest design language. So, you can notice a familiar front end, which is pretty much the same as on the company’s crossover. Still, there are few unique details as well.

Other parts of the vehicle are different, which seems natural. After all, this is a truck. The 2019 Mercedes X-class will continue without changes in terms of design. A double-cab version will be the only in the offer. The interior design will also remain pretty much the same.

Speaking of the interior design, things will remain pretty much the same. This truck comes with a pretty convenient cabin, which looks pretty much like other crossovers of the brand. The 2019 Mercedes X-class will continue in the same way. Besides all these familiar details, there are few unique spots on the dashboard. Highlighted by a larger touchscreen at the center, this dashboard also comes with a unique air-vents design. A complete cabin is made of premium-quality materials, while the list of standard equipment seems pretty generous. For example, an above-mentioned touchscreen is a standard feature for all trim levels. Speaking of trim levels, there are three of them – Pure, Progressive and Power.

2019 Mercedes X-class engines

There are three engines in the offer at the moment and that state is likely to remain. The 2019 Mercedes X-class will come with two diesel and one gasoline unit available.

The gasoline version features a familiar 2.0-liter engine which is good for about 165 horsepower and comes with a 6-speed manual transmission.

When it comes to diesel, there is Renault’s familiar 2.3-liter unit which comes in two output variants, with either 161 or 188 horses. It could come with either manual or automatic transmission.

Still, the best choice would definitely be a Mercedes’ V6 engine. It has a displacement of 3.0 liters, while a max power goes around 255 horses and 460 pound-feet of torque, which sounds pretty amazing. Another benefit from this version is a new 9-speed automatic transmission.

2019 Mercedes X-class release date and price

As we already mentioned, the 2019 Mercedes X-class will come without bigger changes. This indicates that it should arrive somewhere late in the year. We also don’t expect changes in price. Base models should go around 38.000 dollars. Although there are numerous mid-size trucks on the market, this one is a class for itself. Things should change after Audi releases its luxurious truck.
