The Mercedes-Benz X-Class deserves to be the ute segment’s most expensive vehicle, according to the German luxury car maker. Mercedes-Benz Australia has yet to confirm local pricing for the company’s first ever cab-chassis and dual-cab model, though in Europe it’s already carrying a significant price premium over competitors...

I think I'm going to lose my bet.

The bet was a simple one. I reckoned that the new Mercedes-Benz X-Class would sell more than 5000 units in its first full year on sale in Australia. I even wrote it on one of the many whiteboards at our office, to which my colleague Rob laughed and suggested a less ambitious number...

2018 Mercedes-Benz X-Class cab-chassis confirmed

Mercedes-Benz X-Class V6 to tackle Amarok

The all-new Mercedes-Benz X-Class ute has a big talking point – a V6 diesel engine that has more power than anything in the segment. That’s quite a headline act, considering the Volkswagen Amarok V6 launched with a class-leading level of power less than a year ago. But the new 3.0-litre V6 engine in the Mercedes-Benz X-Class Power flagship model will better its German rival for outright grunt...
