2019 Grey Mercedes Benz X 350d – Excellent Agility And Optimum Handling Safety. 2019 Mercedes-Benz X 350d 4MATIC – Drive, Interior and Exterior. Color: Rock Grey Metallic. Subscribe.
Like no other pickup, the new X-Class resolves apparent contradictions: modern design and convincing robustness, impressive off-road capabilities and a high level of driving dynamics, stylish comfort and well thought-out functionality. As such the X-Class is the Mercedes of pickups: It delivers driveability and handling that match many demands – both with regard to driving dynamics and ride comfort.
The top-of-the-range X-Class, the X 350 d 4MATIC, features a powerful six-cylinder diesel engine rated at 190 kW (258 hp) and 550 Nm of maximum torque plus the proven combination of the 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission and 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive with low-range reduction gear and optional differential lock on the rear axle. The response of the engine and transmission can be changed from comfortable to sporty at the tap of a finger thanks to DYNAMIC SELECT. This combination provides high reserves of traction on snow and ice and excellent agility together with optimum handling safety – for more driving pleasure, even in winter.
The all-wheel drive system of the X 350 d 4MATIC features a two-stage transfer case, which is flange-mounted to the 7G-TRONIC PLUS main transmission. It is fitted with a central differential of planetary design which distributes the drive force between the front and rear axle with a fixed torque distribution of 40:60 percent. This rear-biased configuration provides for enhanced driving dynamics and higher lateral acceleration on the road as well as improved traction when accelerating. Optimum traction in off-road terrain and in wintry driving conditions is guaranteed by a continuously adjustable longitudinal differential lock in the transfer case, in the form of an electromechanical multi-plate clutch. This ensures that the traction potential of all four wheels is fully realised in demanding terrain.
