BMW X5 Pickup Hopes Revived After Mercedes X-Class Comment!

By  | 

Mercedes-Benz made a bold move to develop an upmarket pickup truck called the X-Class. Based on the Nissan Navara, the X-Class was met with mixed reactions from the crowd.

Today, rival BMW voiced out their thoughts on the X-Class and they described the vehicle in a single word – “appalling”. BMW added that Mercedes has the resources to offer so much more with the X-Class but the pickup truck ended up looking like an unserious attempt at sales.

BMW expressed their disappointment on the X-Class as they expected more from their rivals and this very comment led many to speculating that BMW may consider showing Mercedes how it is done with their own premium pickup truck.

If that is going to be the case, the BMW pickup truck is likely to be based on the X5. We have seen a number of X5 getting reshaped into a pickup truck and this idea may get an official model if the speculations are to come true.
