Mercedes-Benz X-Class

Excellent idea, pick up truck market in North America is HUGE.

Now we're gonna see pick up trucks from BMW, Audi, Lexus, Jaguar, Infiniti, etc.

This is what happens when manufacturers build cars based on focus groups. A luxury work truck? Why yes we absolutely need those.

With the trend of mainlander's obsession with F150s, I am not looking forward seeing more luxury pickup options available in the market.

T minus however the fuck many days til this car gets released when Richmond is no longer driveable for normal people

why does it matter what brand/type of vehicle bad drivers have?
I think that's only valid if a car has poor visibility without any nanny aids...which I'm sure this will have.

Would you rather collide with a shitty driver driving a Mitsubishi Mirage or a F150 or G63?

Nanny aids are not a solution to shitty driving.

With the top of the line F150 and GMCs selling for $70k+, this is a no brainer for Merc/BMW/Audi to enter the truck game. Margins are massive (relatively low tech) and it is a new lucrative segment for the germans. Remember when people thought Porsche was crazy developing a SUV?

With how crazy the Hummer looking G wagon sells, I think new non truck customers will be buying these German trucks...

Just because it is a truck doesn't mean it is for working.
How often do you see all those SUV in the cities go off-road?

That's because of the duties imposed on foreign trucks, if Merc decides to step into the fray of the US market they're going to have to invest a lot and have these things built in the US to avoid the duties lots of risk and money involved for that

As if those who would buy luxury pickups would go for something that's not American anyway.

Are you sure about that?

If you travel Europe and Asia, you can see how there's almost no market for full size pickup trucks.
