Proof that where there’s a will, there’s a niche, Mercedes-Benz (which already offers 16 model lines in the United States) plans to extend its family tree once again with a produc
Over the past two years, there has not been a more popular car style than the four-door coupe.
The 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL63 AMG (www.mbusa.com) is more powerful, more energy-efficient, and more eco-friendly than last year’s model.
You may not have noticed, but the CLK model no longer exists in Mercedes-Benz’s lineup of cars.
The all-new Mercedes-Benz E350 Convertible is a handsome replacement for the recently retired CLK convertible line.
When Mercedes-Benz decided that it was time for the S-Class to receive a nip-tuck-style face-lift for 2010, it also chose to offer a model that would appeal to a more discriminating driver: one th
After more than a half-century, the gullwing doors are back. Officially called the 2010 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, the new gullwing is an obvious throwback to the 1955 300SL.
The original SLK was the first car in its segment to feature the now-obligatory folding metal roof, and the current AMG model shows why it’s still so popular.
Rain or shine, the hardtop convertible SL550 is fit to handle anything.
The big news for 2010 was the return of the gullwing doors for the SLS AMG, so the SL-Class model line has taken a bit of a backseat.
The SL63 AMG does everything right: great power, great styling, and great fun.
Mercedes-Benz’s strong V-12 engine feels like it was designed specifically for the S600. But Mercedes added the S63 AMG to the range to complement the other AMG model: the Bentley-battling S65.
The S550 was one of the first models offered with the most recent S-Class redesign; it is plenty powerful and plenty good.
The GL550 is larger than BMW’s X5 and Audi’s Q7, making it the better choice for those with several (or more than several) family members.
In order to keep up with its GL-Class brethren, not to mention high-powered versions of the Porsche Cayenne and BMW X5, the M-Class now offers AMG’s brawny 503-hp, 6.2-liter V-8.
The ML350 is part of Mercedes-Benz’s smaller SUV category, but it is not a crossover; that space is reserved for the much smaller GLK.
Although this is available only as a lease through Mercedes-Benz, it shows that the manufacturer is thinking outside of the standard SUV box.
For those who do not need the AMG variant, the ML550 provides plenty of power without displacing comfort.
Last year, Mercedes added the S63 AMG to the range, which complements the other AMG model: the Bentley-battling S65.
The S-Class is a big car, and the AMG-developed 6.2-liter V-8 is a big engine. This could be the perfect marriage.
Like the E350 BlueTEC that came before it, the ML 350 BlueTEC offers good mileage and a cleaner conscience.
Although it may not have the power of its V-8 counterparts, the V-6-powered E350 still provides all the interior amenities of the E500 and E63 AMG sedans.
Optional night-view software in the 2010 E550 adds awareness, so that the driver can keep those in (and out) of the car safe and protected.
With space for seven passengers, the GL450 is one of three offerings in Mercedes-Benz’s supersized SUV class.
One of the first clean diesel offerings in the U.S., the E350 BlueTEC is not the loud, dirty, and jarring vehicle that diesel cars were in the 1980s.
With better exterior styling and increased interior comfort levels, the E350 is a large improvement over the now-retired CLK-Class coupe.
Until Mercedes-Benz decides to launch an AMG variant of its E-Class coupe, the E550 is the most powerful variant in the model line.
