Manufactured generally on Nissan Navara, the premium truck 2019 Mercedes Benz X-Class Brabus will soon be available on the market. According to available information, the first models will be available in the South African market. It is significantly different in design than standard models, and it will also have a lot more powerful engines. For now, only diesel versions are planned. Competitors on the market will have several luxury versions of pickup models, primarily Toyota and Volkswagen.
Built-in three-pointed star logo and body-color bumpers (with silver inserts). Complete lighting is in LED technology. Noticeable is a new LED marker integrated into the front bumper. Also, when the high beam illuminates, a lighting module with twelve diodes on the roof lights up. In addition, it has quad chrome tailpipes with Brabus sports exhaust system. There will be available many upholstery designs and color combinations. The cabin has leather seats, large touchscreen and automatic climate control.
Like Navara, it was built on the Nissan NP300 platform. Available is only double cab with four doors, which is intended for accommodation of five passengers. The outer dimensions are slightly different from the standard X-Class model. Placed at two-tone 20-inch single-piece Monoblock X alloy wheels with seven pairs of twin-spokes, and 20-inch high-performance tires. It’s slightly tighter, and it’s likely to have a higher payload and towing capacity.
The X-Class Brabus will have a 2.3-liter four-cylinder twin-turbo diesel engine of 211 hp and 376 lb-ft (510 Nm) of torque. Acceleration from 0 to 62 mph is achieved in 11.5 seconds. The same engine has a standard X 250d, but much weaker. Also, announced is a much more powerful X 350d model. The current model has a 3.0-liter V6 turbo diesel engine. The production of this engine is 255 hp and 406 lb-ft (550 Nm) of torque. The drive is on the rear wheels or 4Matic all-wheel drive. We assume it will have a 6-speed manual or 7-speed automatic transmission.
Although the official price of the 2019 Mercedes Benz X-Class Brabus has not yet been announced, we expect it to be more expensive than the standard model for $ 3,800.
