Mercedes-Benz Teases Reveal of New Pickup Truck

Model Believed to Be Nissan-Based, Not for U.S. Market

Oct 20, 2016
The midsize pickup segment is one of the hottest growth areas in the automotive market right now, with General Motors enjoying great success with its Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon and Ford reportedly ready to reintroduce the Ranger to the U.S. market within the next few years. Mercedes-Benz announced its interest in the segment last year and subsequently announced it would be partnering with Nissan in developing the truck. Today, Daimler announced an upcoming live video reveal of the Mercedes-Benz pickup concept on October 25 at an art museum in Sweden.
Although officially unconfirmed, it’s believed the truck will be based on the latest-generation Nissan NP300 Navara. The truck will be reportedly built in Barcelona, Spain, and will be destined for Europe, Asia, Africa, Latin America, Australia, and New Zealand. It’s not believed the truck will be offered for sale in the U.S. market, however Mercedes could surprise us.
For global markets, the engines are reportedly an I-4 and V-6 turbodiesel, depending on trim level. Both basic workhorse models as well as more premium trims are expected to be offered. Any prospect of U.S. sales would necessitate at least one gasoline engine option. You can tune in to daimler.com/live/en/ on October 25 at 12:30 p.m. Eastern or 9:30 a.m. Pacific time to view the live reveal.
