Market insight: ‘Great expectations’ for X-Class

Looking up: Mercedes has crunched the numbers and reckons its X-Class ute is perfectly placed to capitalise on the booming dual-cab ute segment and the high take-up of premium model variants.

All-new X-Class ute set to match annual sales of Mercedes-Benz vans in Australia

12 Apr 2018

- Mercedes-Benz expects its all-new X-Class dual-cab ute to draw close to, if not surpass, the annual sales volume of its entire van range – more than 4000 units – as the company works on a broad customer base spanning tradespeople, recreational users and families.

- Officially entering dealerships this week, the X-Class is available in 13 four-cylinder diesel-powered variants at launch – priced between $45,450 and $64,500 plus on-road costs, with options and accessories taking it much higher – and will be bolstered by a V6 diesel engine that is attracting significant buyer interest ahead of its arrival late this year.
