Teaser sketch for potential Mercedes-Benz pickup truck
Mercedes-Benz is prepped and ready to reveal the pickup truck it’s been teasing. We’ve seen spy shots and renderings. There have been rumors of what the name will be. Well, the world will find out what it will look like and what it will be called in just a few days time. Mercedes-Benz will livestream the reveal of its truck on October 25th.
The reveal is set to go down in an art gallery in Stockholm, Sweden. Nothing says “truck” like an art gallery. Remember when the Dodge Ram was revealed at The Met? That Ford F-150 reveal at LACMA was sensational. Joking aside, the Benz truck should be a bit more luxurious than the standard pickup offerings.
Or will it? Today’s top trim trucks are rolling examples of expensive excess. A top spec pickup has more leather than your average E-Class at the moment, and, thankfully, enough cupholders to keep your crew from revolting on you. Still, Mercedes is the company that brought the world the off-road ready G-Class, even if it is the same company that outfitted it with skinny tires and 21-inch wheels for Rodeo Drive poseurs.
Mercedes-Benz should be more than capable of bringing a stout pickup to market–one that will see use in all reaches of the globe.
We’ll all find out more on October 25th.
