Mercedes-Benz has been operating under the motto, “The best or nothing”, and has brought out quite a few vehicles that live up to that mantra. One such vehicle is their new X-Class pickup truck. The X-Class is already a formidable workhorse and a comfortable long-distance cruiser.
Equipped with a turbocharged 2.3-litre diesel inline-four, the X-Class is capable of 187 horsepower with 332 lb-ft of torque. It comes with an automatic transmission and optional all-wheel-drive system. If that’s not enough power for you, then you can opt for the X350d, which is fitted with a turbo-diesel 3.0 litre V6 that can pound out 254 horsepower with 406 lb-ft of torque. Regardless of which engine you go for, the reimagined X-Class on Behance should give you a few ideas.
The gallery presents a Mercedes-Benz X-Class that has been outfitted with a set of tracks rather than wheels. Where wheels are limited in where they might be able to take you, the tracks open up a world of possibilities. The extra grip and adaptability can optimize the power of the X-Class’ engines. Where the idea might fall short is in the daily commuter realm, but as an adventure vehicle, you could do worse than an X-Class on tracks. The idea makes you wonder if Mercedes-Benz will live up to its motto of the best or nothing and start offering this as an option.
