The Mercedes GLT will be a one-tonne, mid-sized pickup. It’s being developed in cooperation with the Renault-Nissan Alliance. To be specific, it will be Nissan and Daimler who will jointly develop the vehicle. It will be available only in double-cab body style and be targeted at personal-use and commercial customers.

The Mercedes pickup will share some of the architecture with the third generation Nissan NP300 (Nissan Navara). The same pickup truck also spawned the first one-tonne pickup from Renault recently – the Renault Alaskan.
