Mercedes’ X350d 4Matic can rightfully claim to be the most powerful bakkie in South Africa, as its standard power output of 190kW and 550Nm is more than its closest rival.
But as we found out when we put it up against the Amarok V6, figures aren’t always the be all and end all of everything. Check out our comparative test here.
If you do own an X350d and you’d like it to be faster than an Amarok, might we suggest you head to a local tuning firm called Race!.
Race! Adds a Brabus PowerXtra D6 package, which upps the power to 221kW and 620Nm of torque. Race! Claims that it lowers the X350d’s zero to 100km/h sprint time to 7.5 seconds.
As you might have noticed, this particular X-Class also includes some cosmetic upgrades, BF-Goodrich tyres and a carbon fibre grille.
