I think that this car will remain at what it is presently...a concept car!

One of the major reasons why Mercedes merged with Chrysler was the product mix. Chrysler would provide it an entry into lower and middle class homes while Mercedes would take care of the higher end. This way they would serve all the profitable segments of the market (including the pickup trucks in the US).

I doubt we'll ever see a production badge on a car that looks like this.
