Called the GLT and developed in close partnership with Nissan, the first-ever Mercedes pick-up has been caught testing in humbler Navara clothes.
Appearances can be deceiving. What we see in the first spy pictures posted by our colleagues from Carscoops is not a heavily camouflaged NP300 Nissan pick-up, but none other than the upcoming Mercedes GLT.
How is this possible? Daimler is already collaborating with Renault-Nissan globally, this very alliance paving the way for platform sharing between the all-new Navara and Mercedes’ own GLT.
The future Mercedes pick-up will come in only one bodystyle, a four-door twin-cab. Independent rear suspension, 4Matic AWD and six-speed manual transmission will all be standard, with a seven-speed automatic on the options list.
A wide choice of drivetrains will be available, with four- and six-cylinder engines expected to be offered alongside the GLT, in petrol and diesel flavours while prices are expected to start around $30,000 (£21,000).
