The All New Mercedes-Benz Bakkie – Yes or No?


The new concepts for the long awaited X-Class series is here and set to be launched in Europe next year.

The first Premium Bakkie of the brand known for its sleek designs and world class engines is said to be released in two variations; the Stylish Explorer and the Powerful Adventurer boasting the best of both worlds.

The Adventurer is said to have the workings and features of traditional Bakkie: strength, functionality and some major off-road capability while the explorer is said to define what distinguishes the Bakkie: style and design and all the little extras we have come to expect from the world class brand.

The model will be manufactured at the Nissan factory in Barcelona, Spain 2017 for European , Australian and South African Markets with the key markets being Argentina, Brazil, South Africa, Australia, Europe and Russia.

And what about price? According to Mercedes Benz, “The new model series will be positioned in the segment at an attractive price.” With the Toyota Land Cruiser 79 4.5D-4D LX V8 double-cab being the most expensive Bakkie on the market in SA currently selling at R731 100, we hope Mercedes can make good on their promise of an “attractive” price.
