Mercedes-Benz X350d pricing and specs

Mercedes-Benz Australia has confirmed the X350d ute will arrive in local showrooms in December, with pricing to kick off at $73,270 before on-road costs. That's a little more than the top-spec Amarok V6 Ultimate's current $68,490 ticket price, while the recently-launched Ford Ranger Raptor kicks off at $74,990. Two equipment lines will be offered – Progressive and Power – with specification levels largely mirroring that of the equivalent four-cylinder models.

Mercedes-AMG GT 63 4-door hits the Nurburgring - video

The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4-door (breathes deeply) is the second standalone model to be launched under Benz's performance arm, and now we have vision of some early examples roaring around the Nurburgring circuit in Germany. Powered by a 4.0-litre bi-turbo V8 making a stonking 470kW of power and 900Nm of torque, put to a rear-biased 4Matic+ all-wheel drive system via a nine-speed automatic transmission, the GT 4-door is a seriously powerful beast.
