Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the X-Class in Sweden on Tuesday in concept form. The automaker will begin selling the pickup truck next year. This model was co-developed with Nissan.

The development of the X-Class concept is based on the Japanese automaker's global Navarra model. The vehicle features unique bodywork and a premium German interior.

The company showed off road and street version of the pickup truck. The vehicle will be offered in a five passenger crew cab configuration and a four-wheel coil-spring suspension.

The automaker made sure that the vehicle will be available in both rear and all-wheel-drive models. The 4X4 model will be equipped with a low-range transfer case and locking differentials for better off-roading capabilities.

The German automaker also showcased a selection of diesel engines at the launch. There is also a V6 motor of unspecified size and power topping the range.

The company claims that the vehicle will have a maximum payload capacity in excess of 2,400 pounds and can tow over 7,700 pounds.

The luxury interior includes leather upholstery and real wood trim. Along with that, the X-Class will be equipped with the latest radar and camera-based driver assists and automatic safety systems and an infotainment system.

The X-Class will be built in Spain and Argentina. At first, the vehicle will be sold in Europe, South America, South Africa and Australia.
