Not many details were shared in the brief press release but we think it'll follow the standard models offering 4x2 and 4x4, single and double-cab styles and plenty of variants.
Our guess is that it will be built at one of the company's South American plants or even the US plant alongside the the brand's other SUVs.
The Benz ute will be an interesting addition to the segment alongside products from other European brands, VW and Renault, plus the regulars Toyota, Nissan, Ford, Mazda and Mitsubishi.
In the meantime, we'd just like more access to Benz's other ute - the mighty G-Professional.
