Pricing and specification for Mercedes V6 X-Class

Mercedes has announced pricing and specification for its new V6 X 350d pick-up, which is available to order now with first deliveries expected in November.

Priced from £38,350 excluding VAT, all UK vehicles are doublecab, with 4MATIC permanent all-wheel-drive and Dynamic Select, 7G-Tronic Plus automatic transmission.

The six-cylinder diesel engine produces a power output of 258hp and a maximum torque of 550Nm.

X 350d models are offered in conjunction with the Power equipment line only, and feature LED headlights with cleaning system, LED tail lights, electrically folding mirrors and Keyless Go as standard.

Inside, the X 350d comes with electrically adjustable, heated driver and front passenger seats, infotainment system, leather upholstery and steering wheel with gearshift paddles and cruise control. Safety features include Active Lane Keeping Assist, Active Brake Assist, Hill-Start Assist, a Thatcham anti-theft security package and a load securing rail system.

The 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive offers three different drive modes – in 4MAT mode the vehicle automatically manages the force distribution. That way, if the vehicle registers loss of grip, the torque is applied to the rear axle instead.

In the 4H (high range) mode a low locking effect of the interaxle differential is presented. This leads to a reduction of the control intervention and therefore improved response characteristics.

The 4L mode (low range) is suited for driving on terrain where maximum force at low speeds is required, such as on steep slopes or muddy roads.

Using the Dynamic Select controller the driver can also choose between five transmission modes (Eco, Comfort, Sport, Off-Road, and Manual).
