The local Robinsons had a new Mercedes pickup X350d imported from Britain. 4million baht and 2 month wait. 

 

I didnt have my phone on me for photos but it looked impressive. Not ugly pointy like a Toyota or too chunky like a Ford. It is in a class of its own with V6 engine and comfortable seats. Forget the hard ass seats and interior full of plastic. 

"Not ugly pointy like a Toyota or too chunky like a Ford".

It's ugliness is more like the Nissan Navarro's ugliness.

I am waiting for the GLB, coming in the beginning of 2020. But it will get only a 1.3 l engine. Not sure if that is what I want. Which engine will the pick-up get?

Even if that is true, and it has not been confirmed, Mercedes is well known for continuing to produce parts for models that have been out of production for many decades.

God knows why you find that so amusing, Kwasaki, when it's true.

Just more of them.  Fifth most dangerous place to drive in the World according to a google search and the other 4 are in Africa.  

Really?  Never heard that old chestnut trotted out before!

The Merc X uses a Nissan platform and is assembled at Nissan on the same belt as their own rides. But, there it seems to end as the Merc uses it's own goodies to complete the ride. The base model does use a Nissan engine though, whether it is totally Nissan I don't know, but the V6 is a Merc engine, a great power plant that will trounce most pickups out there...

The X350D is interesting. The entire drivetrain is Mercedes with that nice AWD and it is quite quick. That said, I just plain dislike solid rear axles. No matter how you guild it, the ride and handling will always be sub par.
