The teaser clip released before the truck’s October 25th release show a dramatically unique body style.

Mercedes-Benz has announced they will release their latest pick-up truck on the 25th of October in Stockholm, Sweden. To make everyone wondering the automaker also released a teaser of the truck.

The teaser video shows a body style unlike any every shown on a pick-up truck and more requisite of a sports car than a truck. Previous reports had claimed the truck would be more like the sleek Nissan Navara truck but the Mercedes-Benz truck is a class in itself. 

Sources report the pick-up which is downright sleek will be named GLT. The front of the truck shows dramatically swept back headlights. One look at the headlights may even be mistaken for that of the Mercedes-AMG GT.

The large mesh grille at the center of the truck is also similar to the AMG. Although earlier reports had hinted the truck would have an off-pavement capability, from the teasers we can derive the truck is still design for the road. 

Another important detail is the similarity of the beltline kicks up at the back door, which is very similar to the Nissan NP300 Navara. Mercedes has been quite vocal the new truck is inspired by Nissan, especially when the German automaker announced their collaboration with Nissan-Renault.

Another speculation is that since Nissan’s Navara and Alaskan trucks were built in Spain and Argentina, Mercedes’ truck will also probably be built there.  

When Mercedes had first announced it will build a truck the details included a payload capacity of 2,200 pounds, which is about a metric ton.

This capacity is more than any mid-sized trucks available in the US. We have to wait until the release to see if the promise about the trucks capacity has indeed been fulfilled.
