Mercedes-Benz is known predominantly for its exotic sports car and sedan offerings. The brand is also no stranger to SUVs, vans and superior off-roading beasts like the Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG and the G500. So is it an April Fool’s Day jest, or will there be a Mercedes-Benz pick-up truck offering?
The renderings of a potential Mercedes-Benz pick-up truck have ignited rumors that the luxury automaker could be changing course and entering the pick-up truck market. According to Mercedes-Benz CEO Dieter Zetsche: “The Mercedes-Benz pickup will contribute nicely to our global growth targets. We will enter this segment with our distinctive brand identity and all of the vehicle attributes that are typical of the brand with regard to safety, comfort, powertrains and value.” The fairly cut-and-dry statement of intent was released along with the teaser rendering featured above.
