2018 Mercedes X-Class Opens Opportunity For Acura Ridgeline To Happen

By  | 

Acura has mentioned before that they are curious to see how the upcoming Mercedes-Benz X-Class will be received by the public when it makes its official debut. If all is to go well, we can expect Acura to come up with their own luxury pickup truck to compete with the German three-pointed star.

Say this is to happen, what can we expect to see from Acura? Knowing that all of Acura’s cars are based on a vehicle from Honda’s line-up, we are likely to see Acura’s pickup truck to be strongly based on the Ridgeline. Heck, it may just be the Ridgeline but one that features more luxuries.

While it may not sound like the most interesting idea for a luxury pickup truck, the Acura Ridgeline can still bring the fight to Mercedes. We say this because we failed to notice anything exception on the design of the upcoming X-Class.

The X-Class still has the structure of a Nissan pickup truck hence the luxury bits are reserved for a minor role. Because of this, we can expect the Acura Ridgeline to have enough when facing the X-Class.
