2019 Mercedes-Benz X350d 4Matic review

The V6-powered Mercedes-Benz X-Class has rolled into town, with the Amarok Ultimate and other primo pickups in its crosshairs.

2018 Mercedes-Benz X220d Pure review

This is the only version of the Mercedes-Benz X-Class ute that can be had at an RRP below $50,000. Is it the real deal, or just excellent badge engineering?

2018 Mercedes-Benz X350d review

The Mercedes-Benz X350d V6 is a more enticing prospect for cashed-up pickup buyers than the four. Elements still feel compromised, but in some ways it's as premium as 4x4 utes in this segment get.

2018 Mercedes-Benz X-Class 250d Progressive review

The Mercedes-Benz X-Class brings a new level of badge cachet to the dual-cab ute market. It's very refined and sports a great cabin design, but is not without its flaws.

Mercedes-Benz X-Class V6 review: The one true X-Class?

Mike Costello jets to Europe for a first run in the new Mercedes-Benz X-Class V6, driven by Merc's very own six-cylinder diesel engine. On first impressions then, the X350d feels more like a ‘proper’ Benz than the four-cylinder version, and does more to justify the cost of those three-pointed star badges (two at the front, one at the rear, one in the tub, one on each side step and each wheel, and one each on the steering wheel and gear shifter, in case you forget what you’ve purchased)...

2018 Mercedes-Benz X-Class 250d Progressive review

This is the Mercedes-Benz X-Class, one of the most hyped launches this year. For some, the three-pointed star badge will be irresistible. Does it deserve the love?

Mercedes-Benz X-Class Comparisons

Mercedes-Benz X250d Progressive v Nissan Navara ST-X comparison

When Mercedes-Benz chose to enter the dual-cab ute market with the new X-Class, it didn’t go it alone. Working partner Nissan lent a hand – and a variety of components from the Navara – to get the job done. The two aren’t exactly the same. The X-Class is more than just a Navara with a three-pointed star on the nose (despite what you might read in our comments), but it’s not entirely different...

2018 Mercedes-Benz X-Class X250d Power v Ford Ranger Wildtrak comparison

Dual-cab utes have taken over the cities and suburbs of Australia. So much so that both the Toyota HiLux and Ford Ranger sit in the top-five most sold cars each year. That popularity trend continues in other overseas markets, where the HiLux and Ranger also sell in huge numbers. Mercedes-Benz wants a piece of the premium ute mix and has dipped its toe in the dual-cab ute waters with the all-new X-Class...

Future of Mercedes X-Class ute in doubt - report

The Mercedes-Benz X-Class ute looks set to be phased out prematurely due to slow sales that have made the vehicle unprofitable even at its comparatively high price. A report out of Europe, published overnight by respected industry journal Automotive News, cited unnamed but well-informed sources claiming the Mercedes X-Class ute “is to be dropped” as the company “seeks to reduce costs amid profit warnings”...

2018-19 Mercedes-Benz X-Class recalled

Mercedes-Benz has recalled the 2018 and 2019 X-Class over concerns about incorrect information in their owner's manual. According to the company, the ute's maximum permissible roof load is incorrectly stated, the ESP function is "incorrectly stated for certain circumstances and some warning messages that may be displayed" for the Pre Safe system...

2019 Mercedes-Benz X350d Edition 1 revealed

Mercedes-Benz Vans has rolled out the first special edition of its X350d flagship ute, called (imaginatively enough) the Edition 1. Car brands love rolling out blinged-up pickups, considering the average buyer spends a few grand on options and accessories anyway. In lieu of a Mercedes-AMG X-Class, this cosmetic pack will have to suffice...

2019 Ford Ranger: Autonomous emergency braking standard, pressure on other utes to follow

The Ford Ranger is the first ute on sale in Australia with autonomous emergency braking (AEB) with pedestrian detection and speed sign recognition as standard across an entire range, from the cheapest tradie model to the flagship Raptor...
