So I was at the grocery store today and I parked beside a small pick-up truck. I thought it was a Ranger or something, then I saw some Mercedes badging on it. I thought, "OMG, how lame, someone put Merc badges on a Ranger!"

But then on closer inspection, I noticed it was a real Mercedes-Benz! An X-Class. I have never heard of this before! This one was the V6 3L turbo-diesel (350d):



The bed is tiny, only comes in one size - 5 feet.

As I was taking pictures, the owner comes out. He is the general manager for the MB dealer in town and he invited me to test drive it. Cool! Going next week to try it out. Will post more pics.

I'm sure it's VERY nice.But it looks like a Honda Ridgeline. (NOT a truck!)

Country limousine for going to the dump in style ;)
you can put the garbage in the back and not stink up the cab.

I think it's based on a Nissan Frontier.

Which isn't a good thing...

Oooooo I just noticed the dent in the rear bumper :| that's going to make a mess of their expensive rear collision sensors which apparently are zero benefit to have on there.

It's based off a Nissan - not sure if it's the Frontier or other Euro model.
They had one the Grand Tour (Amazon's version of Top Gear using Top Gear's former presenters) in a small truck comparison (VW Amarok, Ford Ranger and the Mercedes).

That's my TRUCK, or 1 exactly like it. It says TRUCK on the ownership Ric, lol.
Probably the best all around vehicle I've ever owned. Love it.
And unlike the benz, I didn't bend the bumper when I fell asleep and backed it up into my house. The bumper is made from some durable ****.

This might be something v dub fans will enjoy.
Will there be 1 in FMJ's garage soon?
