In the interview, Mornhinweg explained that Mercedes didn’t want to develop a “fat cowboy truck” for the North American market, which is dominated by the Detroit 3 brands.
... just imagine if they did.

They just don't want to be the ones telling the masses that
Rather let it be known as a truck Mercedes developed

But why would the masses care? Mercedes surely can't be that arrogant that they think they're going to conquest the big 3. Not even nissan can do that and they have the price point...

Not sure if they would but I doubt Mercedes wants to mention much about Nissan, instead let it be known as a Mercedes truck.

It's well known that Daimler is tied up with the Nissan-Renault Alliance. European CLA use Renault sourced diesels, they still have the stamps if you go look for them
