3 Things We Learned From the Mercedes-Benz GLT Pickup Truck Teaser


Mercedes-Benz just released the teaser of its upcoming pickup truck called the “GLT.” Although the video only gives us a glimpse of the Mercedes-Benz GLT, it already shows us a lot of hints about the specs of the auto.

Check out the three things we are expecting from the upcoming Mercedes-Benz GLT pickup truck:

1. Design

The start of the teaser reveals that the snout of the GLT is very sporty in appearance. The slope of the roofline also gives it an aggressive shape. Then everything is accentuated by the signature body lines of Mercedes-Benz. The front of the auto certainly shares many elements with the SUVs of the three-pointed star brand.

It should be noted though that the unit shown in the video is the “Vision” or concept form of the Mercedes pickup truck. So the production model might have some tweaks in its exterior that are different from it. Nevertheless, the production unit will definitely get many elements from its concept model.

2. Capacity

The GLT shares the same platform with the Nissan Navara. Therefore, expect the two to have almost the same hauling capabilities and both should have the same passenger seating capacity.

Like the Navara, the GLT is designed for off-roading and in carrying around heavy cargo. However, similar to the Navara, the GLT carries the design language that defines its brand.

3. Unveiling

The end of the trailer indicates the live world premiere of the Mercedes-Benz GLT. According to the video, the pickup truck will be unveiled on October 25, 2016 in Stockholm, Sweden.


We are yet to discover the engine trims available in the GLT. However, it is most likely that it will have the same inline-four and V6 engines offered by Mercedes SUV units.

2016 Chevrolet Silverado Rally Edition Gets Unique Body Panel

Chevrolet has revealed the 2016 Silverado Rally Edition at the Texas Motor Speedway, and we can’t help but be wowed by its unique body panel, including a power dome hood.

The move sees Chevrolet extending its Silverado’s line of special editions, which offers more truck options than any other brand. Sandor Piszar, Chevrolet truck marketing director, said that their 2015 special editions clearly resonated well with new and younger buyers.

The brand’s total truck sales increased by 27 percent in 2015, which was double the increase for the total truck market.

The Chevrolet Silverado Rally Edition differs from the standard truck because of its matte black graphics package and large wheels. Although Chevrolet didn’t reveal much about the details of the Rally Edition, it did say that the changes were largely inspired by trends in street-performance trucks.

The Rally Edition comes in a monochromatic color scheme with black accents and bold hood and body stripes. It has blacked-out wheels, which can be had in either 20- or 22-inch sizes.

If you will go and check Chevrolet’s “build your own” website, you’ll find that the Rally Special Edition will come packing these features—22-inch wheels, a spray-on bedliner, 4-inch round black side steps, black graphics, box-side decals, and front and rear black bowties. That package will cost $4,995.

For those of you who want the Rally Edition, you will have to choose the 2016 Silverado 1500 in LT trim with the Z71 package. That will give you the 4WD pickup with 4.3-liter EcoTec3 V-6 with an option of either Extended Cab or Crew Cab. This will set you back by $46,965.

Meanwhile, while you decide on whether or not to get the Rally Edition, you can vote for your favorite special edition team as Chevrolet partnered their special edition trucks with a different Chevrolet Racing driver. Head on over to Chevy Trucks’ Twitter account to cast your votes.
