"The locals gave it the name “el camino de la muerte” – Death Road. In terms of danger, there aren't many roads that can beat the North Yungas Road in Bolivia.When it comes to the Mercedes-Benz lineup, it’s made up of crossovers, sedans, coups, SUVs and wagons, convertibles and roadsters, even hybrids and electric models. The only thing really missing is a pick-up truck. But not for much longer. “Mercedes is getting into the pickup game, and from the latest reports, it looks like it’ll come a lot sooner than expected,” writes Noah Joseph of Auto Blog. “According to Auto Express, having spoken with Benz’s van chief Volker Mornhinweg, the German automaker is slated to reveal its debut pickup truck – in concept form at least – before the end of this year. That means we might see it at the Paris Motor Show in October.”

While the pickup truck is currently unnamed, it’s rumored to be called the X-Class. If it makes its way to the Mercedes-Benz lineup sooner than later, can you see yourself behind the wheel of the 4×4?
