Forbes posted a little write-up. Skim the Mercedes X-Class and what not. It's a quick read and may just be something you know already. Nonetheless, thought I would share it for those that are completely new to MB.
Most definitely. Now we definitely know what the competition is going to be like. Going against the likes of the Colorado, Canyon, Tacoma, etc. But, it will bring a real luxury aspect to the game which is what it's been missing.
But one important thing to note is although the type of truck it is has been defined here, it doesn't necessarily mean we have to associate it with others that are mid-sized, it can range quite a bit. For example someone who can afford a higher trim RAM 1500 that doesn't need all it offers as far as capability goes, could give the X-Class a look.
Or even someone who wanted a GLC, doesn't have kids, and its mainly for themselves, so now they're open to the X-Class. Even more useful for that person considering they live an active lifestyle.
That is definitely true. It appeals to those who are already in different markets or are searching in different markets by catering to their needs. The majority of "pickup" owners looking into upgrade/buying a newer one, now have something completely different to look at it seems though.
Well, it's appealing to people in markets that directly surround the X-Class, people that have more than they need because that's what the market has provided them without any alternative, now that alternative is here.
Definitely won't see someone from an E-Class step up to to this, totally different thought process, wants, and desires.
