The GLT is being developed together with Nissan. This implies it will certainly take after some pick-ups made by this Japanese car manufacturer. According to snoop images, it is apparent Mercedes’ pick-up is based on the same system as the new Navara NP300. Joint venture with Nissan was a smart idea because the German car manufacturer does not have enough experience in this section. Until now we can inform the GLT will be a high-performance associate only one possible drawback. The cost appears expensive for a new automobile in this section thus they could have a problem in the first year. We’re not sure what the reason for such cost is, yet we have high hopes Mercedes will make this pickup much more cost effective.
It is just too early to be particular just what unit will certainly be put under the hood of the 2018 Mercedes GLT Pickup, but it is constantly easy to earn some presumptions. In our viewpoint, it is most likely that this vehicle will obtain both turbodiesel and gas engine, with either four or 6 cylinders. Usually, midsize pick-ups have these systems under the hood. Perhaps, Mercedes are going to establish a brand-new engine, however allow’s see exactly what device they could take from the existing schedule.
If they decide to select an unit from the present engine combination, it is probably that it will certainly be a 2.0-liter. This engine is able to supply 205 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. Since this is a pickup both front-wheel as well as all-wheel drives are expected. It is thought this system is mosting likely to be mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission. Full throttle and also 0-60 time won’t differ a lot from the competitors. With the currently offered info, we estimate that top speed of the GLT will certainly be around 130 miles per hour while the velocity is estimated at 8 seconds. However, please desire this is just a supposition and we have to wait on the official details.
As you can see in the photos, the 2018 Mercedes GLT Pickup will certainly appear like American vehicles. Despite the fact that it was greatly camouflaged it is apparent it shares lots of functions with Nissan Navara. Hood is mosting likely to rise and grille appears quite huge. Over the air vents, we detected headlight which is abnormally huge for a midsize pickup. There are side steps on each side since this vehicle is quite high. Rear entrance is rather useful due to the fact that it can be opened up down and sidewards.
Regrettably, we couldn’t have a look inside the cabin. As a result interior stays a large mystery and we definitely do not have a clue what could be put within. Nevertheless, Mercedes constantly have top-notch interiors hence we don’t need to worried they will certainly allow us down. Just please be patient a little bit as well as wait for the German automaker to release even more details concerning this midsize pickup.
Release Date and Price
The rate of the will most likely be about $30,000 which is $3,000 more than Amarok’s price. Some individuals believe it will certainly be presented by the end of the year, however 2017 appears a lot more reasonable.
