Watch the X-Class answer the call.


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.

The X-Class is the perfect, powerful partner for weekends on and off the open road. See this all-purpose ute tackle a range of conditions, while taking all the gear you need along for the ride.

4.55pm, Friday. A week of annual leave booked. Out of office switched on. The team knows you’re going. A nine-day weekend is about to begin. All that’s left to do is get home, put your bags in the back seat, your bikes in the tray and pick up your best mate. 

The last time you two had a chance to do this, he put together a playlist that became the soundtrack to the trip. In the last lunch hour before your break, you made sure those same songs were downloaded to your phone just in case 4G doesn’t roam as far as you do.  

It’s time to get out on the road. There’s a campsite waiting.

Evolution in Action.


The power to perform

With both a 2.3-litre four-cylinder twin-turbo diesel engine and 3.0-litre diesel V6 available, the X-Class is a smooth, comfortable ride out of the city that’s capable of taming the terrain once you’re off the beaten track. 

Gravel, rocks, sand - you name it, this can handle it. Control over the conditions is all thanks to engageable all-wheel-drive as standard on the 4-cylinder variants, and permanent all-wheel drive on V6 variants. 

Even when you’re crossing rivers or driving along beaches, a wading depth of 600mm and ground clearance of 222mm helps you stay high and dry. 

No matter where you’re going, or what you need to take with you on your next adventure, the X-Class is always ready to play its part. 

10.37am, Monday week. Back at the desk. Still buzzing from time spent away from it all. Phone lights up. Text simply says: “Mate, that was epic.”
