Take A Tour Of A Brabus XLP Adventure Mercedes G-Class Pickup Truck

The Mercedes-Benz X-Course pickup was a flop, but corporations converting the G-Course into a luxury truck has remained a boutique vehicle amongst the folks who can afford them. To get a shut seem at a single, look at out this walkaround of a 2022 Brabus XLP Pickup that is centered on G63 AMG.

Searching at this vehicle straight from the front, you could believe it really is just a frequent G-Course with a couple of modifications. A tweaked front bumper has a brush guard and a Warn winch. Also, there is a roof rack with ahead-dealing with LED lamps. 

Alongside the aspect is in which you genuinely see that this G-Course is something particular since of the pickup mattress in its place of a flat rear part. The roof rack attaches to tubular uprights alongside C-pillar and farther back that would surface to supply some roll-in excess of safety.

The pickup mattress is really quite little. It does not help that the total-sized spare wheel mounts in there and takes up even extra house. A pair of twenty-liter (5.283-gallon) gas cans mount to the exterior of the taxi. The hinged tailgate swings outward, compared with most pickups in which it tilts down.

The interior is also straight from the G63, other than for an excess panel with the controls for the excess lights and winch. This performance-concentrated quality of G-Course has a great cabin from the factory, although. There are all of the luxury features a individual could want like massaging seats and an enjoyment procedure for the 2nd row.

When Brabus debuted the XLP Adventure (gallery over), it showed the truck with an aggressive physique kit that incorporated a hood with a pair of nostrils. Also, the corporation pushed the engine output to 789 hp (588 kW) and 738 lb-ft (1,000 Nm) of torque. There was a drone landing pad in the cargo mattress.

Just after the seem at the truck, the action shifts to the G-Course Knowledge Centre. The area features motorists a chance to go off-roading in a controlled ecosystem to study how to management these rugged vehicles.
