With the right upfitting, it can be done, as it has with many other pickups from the leading pickup makers we're all familiar with. What would you like to see in a "proper" pickup?
as long as sales are where they need to be don't expect anything more from Mercedes
the only next time we'll see drastic improvements is with a next generation model.

I just think no one will get past the fact it isn't a pure Mercedes product thus less motivation to spend on Brabus upgrades which is a bit commitment, they don't come cheap.

Its hard to say really.
Worst case scenario is Merc develops a pickup that sits above the X-Class, something rugged like an F-150 but built from the ground up as true Mercedes.

that might be true but i'm not yet convinced the pickup buyers of today are THAT concerned, 10-15 years ago, sure
I agree that the people who buy the regular X-Class or this Brabus version aren't going to be as concerned that it shares similarities with Nissan. Simply because Mercedes doesn't have a long, storied history making pickup trucks.

It would be a completely different issue if Mercedes had one of its sedans or SUVs share the same platform with a Nissan or another carmaker.

In a way it doesn't make sense for the business model of brands that aren't American.
Most of them don't sell anything close to a pickup.
Selling a pickup would then result in investing more than they should.
