    I saw an 18 plate on the M5 today, not seen one before. I guess they thought they would like slice of the Defender free utility market.

    You'd like to think it will have a reasonable set of mechanicals

    New X Class. Priced around the same as the VW Amarok, but not seen one in the wild yet to compare.

    Rumours were that it was to be more powerful than the VW, but the launch specs look slightly under the 2017 Amarok.

    I expect they’ll sell well in Moscow. There’s a strong market there for high end SUV / Utilities.

    Yes a nissan but apparently merc have stiffened the chasis, better suspension, discs all round. And basically a merc interior. Many of the body panels are also different. Built in the renault factory in spain. Merc interior and gadjets.

    The 4 cyl engines are nissan

    I must ho look as my pick up is dirty

    I wonder if it is subject to the autocar reported Daimler recall of 774,000 mercedes models due to emission 'defeat devices' :scared:
