A new definition of tough.

Are you ready to end the year at the head of the pack? The powerful V6 Mercedes-Benz X 350 d 4MATIC is here.

This high-powered addition to the X-Class range features a 3.0-litre 190kW (258hp) six-cylinder diesel engine built at the Daimler AG plant in Marienfelde, Berlin. Best-in-class acceleration gets you from 0 to 100 in just 7.5 seconds.

Permanent all-wheel drive makes sure stability and handling is maintained both on and off the road - even when conditions get slippery at a worksite, or during a weekend adventure off the beaten track.

And DYNAMIC SELECT comes standard, meaning a choice of engine and transmission response levels - from comfortable to sporty - is always at your fingertips.

The system features five driving modes that can be changed with ease, no matter if you’re on smooth city streets or hitting the dirt. These modes modify the engine profile, the automatic transmission shift points, and the ECO start/stop function.

4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive features a low-range reduction gear, while a diff-lock on the rear axle keeps up performance and traction on a wide range of driving surfaces - from gravel and rocks to sand. This cutting-edge all-wheel drive system maintains optimal traction under changing conditions, too.

The X-Class features a comprehensive array of safety features. The fit out includes seven airbags, internally-vented disc brakes on the front and rear, and an i-Size attachment system that allows for the installation of two child seats.

The Lane Keeping Assist feature seen in the 4-cylinder models has been upgraded to Active Lane Keeping Assist. This helps to keep you safe in busy traffic on the way to work, or on a family road trip.

If you unintentionally depart from your lane, not only will you feel a vibration through the steering wheel, but left or right-side braking will be automatically applied to move your vehicle back into position.

The X 350 d 4MATIC is available in PROGRESSIVE and POWER variants to suit your weekday needs and weekend lifestyle, featuring unique V6 badging on the fender and X 350 d 4MATIC badging on the rear tailgate.

This class-leading vehicle is available now in AUSTRALIA.
