Mercedes has revealed details of its X-Class premium pick-up ahead of its introduction to the market in November.

Due to go on-sale in Australia later this year, Mercedes-Benz Australia is in the final stages of defining the local S-Class line-up, including the model line-up, pricing and specifications.

The tradie ute space is set to look a little whiter around the collar, with the Mercedes-Benz X-Class making its global debut in production form in South Africa this morning ahead of its early-2018 local launch.

Some markets will receive a four-cylinder petrol option, but that engine is not on the cards for an Aussie intro.

"As a result, with the X-class, we can effectively provide a solution for trade and fleet customers, and we will find out just how far this category can evolve for private customers who need the vehicle to support their lifestyle". Customers can choose between a rear-wheel or all-wheel-drive and a six speed manual or a seven speed automatic transmission.

4Matic all-wheel-drive will be available as an option, and in the middle of next year a permanent all-wheel-drive model will complement the range. Today, the world meets the mid-sized Mercedes luxury truck it's been waiting for, I guess.

"Classic interiors with extensive use of leather on dashboard, wood grain trims and an 8.4" touchscreen infotainment system will be available.

Despite wearing a tri-star logo, Mercedes says the truck is fully-capable of handling work duty as it features a ladder-type frame and a solid rear axle.

A high-torque V6 diesel engine will be released mid-2018, ensuring even greater agility on- and off-road.

"That auto feel extends to an interior which is quite familiar Mercedes territory, with good looking seats, an 8.4" infotainment screen and digital driver display in higher-end models, with safety stuff like Lane Keep Assist, Traffic Sign Assist and Active Brake Assist all present and correct.
