Mercedes X250d Redesign – mercedes x250d
Good night, candied prince, we hardly knew ye. Mercedes-Benz
If you alive in the US and don’t pay decidedly abutting absorption to car and barter models that aren’t awash here, you could calmly be forgiven for not alive that Mercedes-Benz makes a auto truck. It’s alleged the X-Class, and it’s absolutely appealing cool.
Unfortunately, it may not be continued for this apple if a address appear Tuesday by Automotive News Europe is to be believed. The acumen for the accessible annihilation of the X-Class is the accepted common sales slump for new vehicles.
The X-Class, actuality affectionate of a alcove artefact — and a badge-engineered one at that — is an accessible ambition for amount savings. Yep, we said badge-engineered. The X-Class is based on a Nissan auto (that we additionally don’t get in the US) alleged the Navara. Obviously, Mercedes actuality what it is, it changes a ton of stuff, so it’s not absolutely as bad as say, Volkswagen rebadging a Grand Caravan as the Routan.
In any case, the X-Class (which has been about aback 2017) hasn’t absolutely been aerial off of banker lots. Automotive News Europe pegs the all-around sales for the archetypal at aloof 16,700 units. By comparison, Mercedes confused about 15,000 S-Class models in 2018 in the US alone.
When you accede that the S-Class costs added than alert as abundant as an X-Class (based on German bazaar prices) and auto sales are in the accepted terlet here, the model’s cessation starts to accomplish some absolute sense.
Now, we’ll afford no tears for the X-Class if and aback it goes away, but we do like the abstraction of a Mercedes pickup. We aloof charge to argue the association aback in Stuttgart to do some absolutely agrarian being like accomplish a Jeep Gladiatoresque adaptation of the G-wagen and advertise it in America.
