Not sure where this goes, but Mercedes Benz pickup?
 
Saw this today, and just like everything else automotive, the USA gets left out. All the cool stuff is always going to everywhere else in the word, even so called American car companies.

I'm not really all that surprised. MB has been building trucks and utility vehicles in Europe for decades.

That article says the following: "The report claims the truck will be available in one of three variants; work-truck, mid-range, and luxury. Pricing would range from $42,000 to $56,000."

Honestly, that doesn't seem too far outside of what the majority of new modern trucks go for these days (+/- 7k or so).

Especially once you factor in the "goodies" I'm sure any truck that bares the Mercedes-Benz name would have included.

Seems right in line with the $$$$ truck market that is happening as we type (for better or worse).
