Luxury vehicle or just another way for people to spend ridiculous amounts of money? I'm going with the latter. According to Business Insider, Mercedes Benz is in the process of releasing a new pick up truck. Strange right?

The pick up was supposed to be released in 2020, but reports are now saying a concept version of the pick up will be released towards the end of 2016. The new Benz most likely wont be sold in the US due to the popularity of other pick ups from companies like Toyota, Chevrolet and Ford. The truck, which is rumored to be named The X-Class, is based off the Nissan Navara and will run on a "2.3-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder diesel engine."

It doesn't look like a authentic pick up truck, I don't think we'll be seeing these in country music videos anytime soon. Just saying. The rumored "X-Class" is scheduled to make it's debut at the Paris Motor show in October 2016.
