The Mercedes-Benz X-Class dual-cab 4×4 ute package from Pickup Design studios will make you crazy.
Available in Australia priced from around $49,000 – on top of the price of the ute but including labour – it is backed by the duration of the manufacturer’s warranty, so three years if the ute is new.
The EXY Extreme package features a Pedders suspension lift kit that jacks the vehicle by an extra 30mm, increasing visual oomph.
It also adds 18-inch alloy wheels shod with Black Bear mud-terrain or all-terrain off-road tyres with a wider track to match the outrageous rubber/metal wheel-arch extensions.
The interior fit-out was created by Carlex Design, a Polish company best known for trimming up exotic and luxury cars, not to mention motor yachts.
As such, sports seats with Nappa leather and Alcantara upholstery are part of the package, as is a custom steering wheel, floor mats, Carlex Design logos and a limited-edition plaque.
The X-Class kit is not cheap at almost $50K but carsales.com.au understands there are several other Aussie customers lining up to order the package.
The EXY Extreme is the second Mercedes-Benz X-Class kit to come following the EXY Urban package we road-tested in 2019.
