Daimler recently announced plans to build an all-new model in Tuscaloosa, Alabama and a teaser image has popped up on Twitter.

Looking low and sleek, the picture likely previews the MLC crossover which is being developed to battle the BMW X6. The model will be based on the M-Class when it goes into production in 2015.

In a statement, Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche said "This new model, from the Tuscaloosa plant, is an important element of our growth strategy. It is one of the ten additional models which we will introduce within the next four years alone across all segments."
