The Mercedes-Benz X350d pick-up is powered by a 190kW/550Nm 3.0-litre six-cylinder diesel engine.
Mercedes-Benz Vans Australia has outed pricing for its upcoming X350d 4Matic, with the V6-powered pick-up set to arrive Down Under in December with a starting price of $73,270 plus on-road costs.
At launch, the vehicle will be available in two grades, Progressive and Power, with the latter topping the X-Class line-up at $79,415.
The Power is $4425 more expensive than the freshly launched Ranger Raptor and it takes the title of the priciest mid-size pick-up on the Australian market.
Unlike the four pot which is sourced from Nissan, the V6 is a Daimler engine.
The added displacement that the X350d brings to the X-Class range comes at a significant premium over the 2.3-litre four-cylinder X250d that launched in April.
The X350d Progressive is $15,470 more than the four-cylinder X250d Progressive, while the flagship V6 Power commands a $14,915 premium over the equivalent four-cylinder model grade.
Jumping from the top-spec four-cylinder variant to the most affordable V6 Progressive costs $8770.
However, the extra money will afford customers stronger performance, gaining 50kW and 100Nm over the next-best X250d, and making use of Mercedes’ 4Matic permanent all-wheel drive system as standard.
Unlike the four pot which is sourced from Nissan, the V6 is a Daimler engine, which may also add to its value for some buyers.
On the safety end, the X350d features AEB, active lane keep assist, a surround-view monitor and more.
Motivating the pick-up is a 190kW/550Nm 3.0-litre six-cylinder diesel engine that is mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission, propelling the vehicle from 0-100km/h in 7.5 seconds, 4.3 seconds quicker than the X250d Power.
Drivers will also be able to filter between five modes, Comfort, Eco, Sport, Manual and Offroad which modifies the engine response, transmission shift points and toggles the automatic start/stop functionality.
The specification of the two grades, Progressive and Power, mirror that of the four-cylinder X-Class range, but add keyless start/stop, dual-zone climate control and new 18-inch light-alloy wheels on the Progressive.
Exclusive to the X350d Power is aluminium dash trim, black roof liner and 19-inch light-alloy wheels.
Other noteworthy standard equipment on the Progressive grade includes a leather-lined steering wheel and parking brake, fabric seats, a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, eight-speaker sound system and halogen headlamps.
Motivating the pick-up is a 190kW/550Nm 3.0-litre six-cylinder diesel engine.
Meanwhile, the top-spec Power features chrome-plated underbody protection, a chrome-plated rear bumper, 19-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, matte black pixel and microfibre dashboard trim, leather-effect seat upholstery and power seats.
On the safety end, the X350d features auto emergency braking, active lane keep assist, a surround-view monitor, front and rear parking sensors, tyre pressure monitor, trailer stabilisation and seven airbags.
