Mercedes-Benz’s impending pickup truck could be dubbed the X-Class or Z-Class following the emergence of news from a secret Australian design forum about the car.

Local publication Car Advice says that the new premium pickup will continue the marque’s existing nomenclature and help to distinguish the pickup as a distinct model within its range.

We already know that the Mercedes pickup will be based around the Nissan Navara NP300 and therefore utilise the Nissan’s platform. Beyond that, however, the company says the pickup will be totally distinct from its Nissan sibling to ensure it retains the key values of Mercedes.

Discussing this, Daimler board member Thomas Weber said “Yes, to come to an attractive price we are using a common platform, but all the rest is done by Mercedes – to design, to develop the vehicle specifically to meet Mercedes criteria.”

To cater to a broad range of customers, three distinct specifications will be offered. The entry-level model will be focused at trade workers, a more comfortable and versatile mid-range model and then a luxurious variant incorporating the firm’s best materials and technologies.

Due to the vehicle’s Nissan underpinnings, it will be produced at the group’s production facilities in Argentina and Spain, and be sold globally.
