The current lineup of Mercedes’ vehicles includes everything from a regular city car to the SUVs and hyper-cars. On the other hand, one piece of the puzzle is largely missing and it is a truck. For that reason, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz Pickup Truck will soon have an opportunity to hit the roads. This pickup will ride on the same platform as Nissan Navara and the main competitor will be VW Amarok.
However, if you are imagining a big truck with premium stuff only, you are wrong. There is now tuned suspension or things such as alloy wheels, no. The idea is to deliver a reliable and practical pickup truck. Most of the details aren’t clear at the moment, but the spy shots are available. And according to the rendering images, 2020 Mercedes-Benz Pickup Truck will look just like the Navara model.
2020 Mercedes-Benz Pickup Truck exterior
The exterior of the 2020 Mercedes-Benz Pickup Truck will look modern, however, most of the styling cues are borrowed from other company’s models. You can take a look on the GLE Coupe and you can see similar or the same styling cues. High hood and large grille are highlighting the front part and the bed at the back looks upscale. Plenty of swooping lines are flowing all over the pickup’s body and character lines are looking gorgeous.
We don’t have a clue what type of the wheels are, but they are not 21-inch alloys as we are used to seeing. Pair of side steps is available so getting in and out is very easy. Not only that, the steps are done in chrome so the upscale feeling is better. German carmaker will probably make both single and crew cab configurations so this truck will be easy to customize.
2020 Mercedes-Benz Pickup Truck interior
There is not much know about the interior of the upcoming 2020 Mercedes-Benz Pickup Truck. We also don’t know if there will be a workhorse type of interior or a luxurious type of the cabin. Having a look at the Mercedes’ vans, we think there will be both types of interior. The goal is to deliver a practical cabin, and the base model will offer one. However, thanks to the numerous trim levels, you should have an option to turn your pickup truck into something more luxurious.
For the start, the dashboard is plastic, and the same stands for some of the controls and radio interface. A TFT display comes with the two-gauge cluster and it provides important vehicle information. Leather upholstery is optional along with the more chrome materials and wood trims.
2020 Mercedes-Benz Pickup Truck engine options
According to the latest speculations, Mercedes will offer numerous drivetrain choices. Moreover, the German carmaker is ready to offer an economical four-cylinder gasoline unit on the base model. On the other hand, turbodiesel powertrain will be optional. The most likely outcome is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine. This turbocharged unit can generate 208 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. A 7-speed automatic transmission is available.
Unfortunately, we don’t have a clue which sort of diesel engine will German automaker offer. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz Pickup Truck will ride on both two-wheel-drive and four-wheel drive setups. The payload and tow ratings are not available yet, but we expect much competitiveness from the Merc.
2020 Mercedes-Benz Pickup Truck price and release date
Predicting the price of the 2020 Mercedes-Benz Pickup Truck rear is not that easy. What we can say is that to the expect the price similar to the VW Amarok. The latest Volkswagen’s pickup cost $28,000 while the range-topping model is priced at $50,000. This Mercedes’ truck will go on sale in the first half of 2020.
