    Mercedes-Benz may no longer be building 6x6 versions of its G-Class, but there's a company out there that could soon offer a similar conversion for the German automaker's X-Class pickup truck sold overseas. The company is Pickup Design, the pickup truck division of Polish tuner Carlex Design, and it's already offering some wild upgrades for the X-Class.

    Mercedes-AMG isn't planning to upgrade the X-Class anytime soon—it probably has to do with the fact the mid-size pickup truck is based on a donor Nissan platform—but there are plenty of tuners out there willing to step in. One of them is Pickup Design, the pickup truck division of...

    Mercedes-Benz chose Cape Town, South Africa to reveal the production version of its X-Class pickup truck. Why Cape Town?
