I'm starting to think that selling the X-Class in the U.S. might have been necessary.
I mean, the mid-size segment is taking off, so much that some automakers are returning and others preparing for a bigger fight.
Ford is one of them that's returning.
MB execs must be kicking themselves!
You don't launch a pickup as special as this in the most competitive mid-size pickup market.
Especially when there's a lot of anxiety around owning anything German
People rather buy the Tacoma, Colorado or Canyon, even if they are not any bit as fancy.
