New Mercedes X-class to be built on Navara Chassis

Can't get the link to post, but anybody else see that Mercedes Benz is using the new Navara as its donor for the X-class mid size pickup in Australia & South Africa, due 2018? Not bad looking in off road trim, but the specs are questionable...

Such a waste not to bring it here, no other country spends $60-80k on trucks with the volume or frequency that the US does. Just look at how many F-150 king ranch editions have been sold over the last decade! I think the issue is we don't currently buy enough midsize trucks here & Nissan probably doesn't want US competition with the new frontier in the pipeline. I bet we'll see it around 2020 though, even the wife would drive that truck!
