Mercedes-Benz X-Class Power

Mercedes-Benz X-Class Pricing Confirmed


 New Benz X-Class pricing to start from $45,450, with sales kicking off in April 2018 

Pricing for perhaps one of the most controversial utes to go one sale, the Mercedes-Benz X-Class, have just been announced.

Sales will kick off in April 2018 with four-cylinder models and the 3.0 litre V6 turbo diesel version will follow in mid-2018. The range will open with the X220d Pure cab chassis with rear wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission which will be priced from $45,950 plus on roads and the range will initially top out with the X250d Power with Benz’s own seven-speed auto and 4MATIC permanent four-wheel drive system from $64,500.

Prices for the V6 models will be announced closer to launch.

Two engines will be available, a Nissan sourced 2.3 litre four-cylinder unit and Mercedes’ own 3.0 litre turbo diesel V6. Two versions of the Nissan-derived engine will be available: a single turbo unit producing 120kW and 403Nm. Models powered by this engine will be badged X220d. A twin turbo version of the same engine will produce 140kW and 450Nm, models that a propelled by this donk will be badged X250d.

The flagship V6 will serve up 190kW and a healthy 550Nm. V6-powered models will bear X350d badging.

Four cylinder models will be available with either a six-speed manual or seven-speed auto, with power sent to the rear wheels, or customers will have the option of specifying a selectable four-wheel drive system. The V6 will be available with permanent four-wheel drive and the automatic gearbox.

Mercedes says the X-Class will be able to carry a payload of up to 1.1 tonnes and will be able to tow up to 3.5 tonnes, which is impressive. A full-sized pallet will be able to fit between the rear wheel arches.

If you need your X-Class to go off-road, there’s 222mm of ground clearance and carefully designed approach and departure angles, to help ensure you don’t scrape the underbody.

As previously reported, three trim levels will be available: the tradie-oriented Pure, the mid-spec Progressive and the leisure-focussed Power.

Key standard features will include a reversing camera, lane keep assist and tyre pressure monitoring. The Progressive adds satellite navigation, colour coded bumpers, 17 inch alloys, carpeted flooring, an eight speaker stereo, electric mirrors and a heated windscreen.

The Power adds LED headlamps and partial LED tail lamps, 18 inch alloys, auto headlights and wipers, COMAND online infotainment system, artificial leather/cloth trim, 360 degree camera, Parktronic automated parking, KEYLESS GO and climate control.
