Mercedes-Benz’s light-duty pickup truck has been spotted once again. However, in contrast to the previous testing mule that used Navara’s body, this new prototype reveals the production form of the 2018 Mercedes-Benz Pickup Truck, which is rumored to be named the GLT. Although deeply buried beneath camouflage, the vehicle already shows its nature that is nothing but work.
2018 Mercedes-Benz Pickup Truck: Styling
As you may see, the 2018 Mercedes Pickup Truck sports nothing fancy and schmancy, but just the true workhorse body. Moreover, the prototype shows some similarities with its sibling from Nissan. Still, there are some differences, especially in the front and sides. Namely, the pickup is getting Mercedes’ huge grille, and a little bit more aggressive headlights, while the car manufacturer could also add the rounded fog lamps. At the sides, the vehicle features less rugged look, because the Navara has these highly bulging fenders. The interior should be a completely different story. This is the part where the German vehicle should show its class and some unique styling tweaks.
2018 Mercedes-Benz Pickup Truck: Engines
Still, the most important difference between the 2018 Mercedes Pickup Truck and Nissan’s Navara lies under the hood. The new truck will likely offer its own engines, both gasoline and diesel. There will be 4- and 6-cylinder mills, so you can choose either fuel-efficient or powerful option.
The carmaker hasn’t say anything whether the 2018 Mercedes Pickup Truck arrives in North America. For all we know, the truck will be produced together with Nissan Navara in Barcelona, Spain, so there are small chances to see the US-model. Maybe, but just maybe, the manufacturer could arrange the production with its second partner Renault in Argentina.
