    Mercedes-Benz X-Class

    No f'in thank you...



    I'm sure everyone else loves it. The exterior isn't bad but that's not where I spend 99% of my time with a vehicle...

    Exterior looks like a Chevy competitor, not a luxury class vehicle.

    Same for the interior.

    No kidding. That interior is horrendous!

    One thing this and the VW Amorok has that GM needs to adopt is the V6 Turbo Diesel engine as a range topper

    Interior is pretty bad. Exterior is pretty nice. I could **** with it.

    The truck has nice lines and looks the part, plus it's a Mercedes. If they sold this here, it would be successful and could conceivably spread the suburban cowboy meme to metro NY (please no).

    DLO meshes horrifically with the box caps or whatever the hell you call those stupid things, it looks like a bad photoshop. What the ever loving fudge is with that angle between it and the tailgate?




    I'm in love with the stripper.

    It looks like someone grafted a Mercedes front fascia onto a work truck.

    Cause that's exactly what they did.
