Ready for Adventure

Ready for adventure.



Production of X-Class vehicles has ceased and there is no new vehicle stock remaining in New Zealand. The information provided on this webpage is here as a guide, should you require specific product information visit the X-Class Overview page.

Fresh air, roads less travelled and all the challenges of adventure. With everything you need for a weekend away loaded into the tray of your X-Class ute, you’re not only ready for adventure - you’re set to travel in style and comfort.

Free your mind.

Thanks to the X-Class’s engageable all-wheel-drive on 4-cylinder variants and the permanent all-wheel-drive on the V6 ute, you’re ready for a range of conditions on and off the road.

Tackling the unpredictable is easy. A low range transfer case and selectable rear axle differential lock (4-cylinder and V6 4MATIC variants) ensure you have maximum traction in the toughest of conditions.

A generous ground clearance of 222mm helps you take on steep inclines, water crossings and rocky terrain with ease. While the underbody will help to protect your engine, transmission and exhaust system.

Getting uphill is no battle, either for the 4MATIC variants. The X-Class 4MATIC ute can tackle steep inclines of up to 45 degrees without losing control. When you’re heading down the other side, Downhill Speed Regulation keeps your downhill speed under control, too.4

Let the X-Class do the heavy lifting.

When you’re towing a boat, or have bikes and camping gear stacked in the tray, the steering precision stays accurate and the handling agile - even when you’re on uneven terrain. 

That’s thanks to an adjustable load-securing rail system1, multi-link coil suspension at each wheel and a wide track widths of 1,632mm in the front and 1,625mm in the rear. 

The width of the tray is generous between the wheel arches - fitting a standard pallet - and the bedliner has been designed to protect the tray lining. The X-Class does the grunt work, so you’re all set to confidently explore your next destination. 

X-Class: Always watching out for you. 

Part of being on an adventure-packed road trip is finding a place to stop, so you can recharge and do it all again tomorrow. 

The Parking Package2 is an impressive set of tech that includes a 360 ̊ camera and PARKTRONIC system. When you’re manoeuvring through packed campsites and into out-of-the-way places, or when you’re hooking up a trailer to your ute, the best view is a must.

With the X-Class, a new level of visibility comes from four networked cameras that show a bird's-eye view and vision from under the vehicle, using the multimedia display.

There are four sensors in the front and four in the rear which will sound an alert if there are obstacles in hard-to-see spots. Get in, get out. And keep going.3
