The company abandoned development of a pickup truck.
The President of the division Mercedes-AMG during starting of a 4-door coupe GT in Texas stated that XG X-Class AMG will not be developed.
This means that X350d 4Matic will remain the most powerful version of the world’s first pickup truck. It is equipped with a 3.0-liter diesel engine V6, producing 255 horsepower and a torque of 550 Nm.
It’s a decent performance for markets in Europe and Australia, but US customers addicted to V8 for their trucks, and it is for this reason X-Class will not be available overseas.
“The culture of the AMG will be difficult to fit into the culture of Nissan and Renault,” said Tobias Moers, and “hardcore” the origin of AMG do not correspond to the Japanese and French roots of a pickup truck.
Fans of powerful cars recommends that you contact the tuners of BRABUS, which will add 21 “horse” and 42 Nm to factory settings, the same update is available for V6.
