Wait, what? Mercedes-Benz X-Class to be discontinued, report suggests

The X-Class didn't even get off to a good start in the markets it was available in.

Owners of the Nissan Navara-based pickup could easily wheel in a pair of bicycles into the bed of the X-Class and call it a day. The three-pointed star's pick-up truck will be dropped from the marque's product line-up in light of profit warnings according to sources at the brand, Automotive News Europe reported.

Regardless Amber excited dashed into the hideaway, where Greg excitedly awaited to greet her. "Sit down? That was really rude". The Londoner was dumped during tonight's episode and left alone when Michael chose to remain behind without her.

Carlex Design has unveiled an eye-catching bicycle rack for the Mercedes-Benz X-Class pickup truck. Only 16 700 units of the Nissan Navara-based pick-up were sold previous year in Europe, Australia and South Africa combined, sources say. Stuttgart had ruled out the United States as a market as that is the domain of the full-sized pick-up truck. The pickup, which boasts more luxurious features inside than the Nissan it's based on, has reportedly been a tough sell with its $41,000-plus starting price at current exchange rates.

One interesting thing you may not immediately notice about the roof rack is that the rear portion actually doubles as a ramp whose tilting mechanism is electrically controlled through a remote. Remember, although this is a Mercedes-Benz, the X-Class was vying for space in markets the Ford Ranger and Volkswagen Amarok fill quite well.
