Will the Mercedes pickup truck be called X-Class?

Report: 2018 model-year Mercedes truck will debut at Paris motor show this fall
Mercedes-Benz will preview its upcoming pickup truck at the Paris motor show this fall, Auto Express reports. The pickup, which will likely be badged X-Class, is expected to go on sale in the fall of 2017 as a 2018 model.
The newest addition to Stuttgart's light-truck lineup will share most of its mechanicals with the 2016 Nissan Navara pickup, though the powerplants are expected to be Mercedes' own. Expect four- and six-cylinder engines under the hood, along with a gas-electric hybrid that will arrive a little later in the product cycle.
Mercedes will offer the pickup in a cdifferent versions; a commercial-oriented variant with a simpler cabin and more rugged trimmings, and a more luxurious version with all the comforts of Mercedes SUVs like the GLE-Class.
Don't plan on seeing a "fat cowboy truck for North America," as Mercedes-Benz van chief Volker Mornhinweg put it to Britain's Car. The pickup is expected to be closer in packaging to the Volkswagen Amarok, rather than being a GLS-Class with a pickup bed.
"We will enter this segment with our distinctive brand identity and all of the vehicle attributes that are typical of the brand with regard to safety, comfort, powertrains and value," Mercedes-Benz chief Dieter Zetsche said in a 2015 interview with Automotive News.
The question of whether it will be offered in the States still hinges on Mercedes' ability to build it here. That's not in the cards at the moment.
