That's a fairly significant price hike, but it does provide an additional 70 horsepower and torque over the 250d. The only issue now is whether or not MB plans on offering it outside of the UK.
Mercedes did what Nissan couldn't do and that is offer a luxurious pick-up that people would immediately gravitate to.I don't interest in the X Class has been what MB was hoping for. When it first launched there were lots of criticisms as to whether or not enough was done to this rebadged Navara. If they do plan on an international release, I think it'll probably be the 350d.
