Mercedes-AMG might already think that the X-Class is the pinnacle of pickup trucks. But any good tuner will tell you, there's always room for more.
Pickup Design, the pickup truck division of Polish tuner Carlex Design, has stepped in to show us just what the vehicle is capable of. The tuner recently unveiled an aggressive looking X-Class that could rival anything from AMG's Affalterbach headquarters.
They call it the EXY. The modified pickup comes with two versions: Off-Road Extreme and Urban. No changes have been made to the powertrain for either package. But with body modifications and custom wheels, they certainly embody their titular roles.
Carlex Design is well known for their high-quality interior modifications, so it makes sense that the EXY would look just as exotic. The leather-lined seats hug the body, while a matching trim lines the dash and center console. While this is intended to be the best working man's truck there is, it saddens me to think that the inside would be roughed up by work boots and musty outfits.
The EXY maintains the same powertrain as regular X-Class models. Diesel-powered, the highest stock model has a 3.0-liter turbocharged V-6 engine pushing 187 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque. Assuming an empty bed, the pickup has a 0-62 time of 7.9 seconds and a top speed of 127 mph.
While Pickup Design hasn't stated just where they'll offer the EXY, we can assume that the States will not be one of the places. This is because the X-Class isn't offered here, as is.
