Mercedes AMG GT R Touches Down US

01-mercedes-amg-gt-r-quail--drew-phillips

The Slick New Mercedes-AMG GT R

While we’ve seen images floating around on the internet of this beauty of a car, the viciously green GT R has made its first public appearance stateside and a new chorus of attention is rising to meet it. The car is bound to catch eyes and turn heads with the vibrant green, and with the powerful engine it’s sure to be felt as it cruises around being hardly street legal and designed with racetracks in mind. With a car like this you are bound to burn through your tires and brakes as you test the limits.

 

You’ve seen this car before. The 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT R made its first official public appearance on June 24 at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. You probably recognize the GT R by its impossible-to-miss color, which is called AMG Green Hell Magno (no, not mango). But this awesome AMG just made its first visit to North America in California as part of Monterey Car Week. What better reason could there be to dredge it back up to the surface with a live image gallery?

At the heart of the GT R is a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 that puts out 577 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. There are a host of changes versus more mundane AMG GTs to make the R worthy of its badge, all culminating in a 0-60 run of 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 198 miles per hour. Continue Reading

This mix of retro design and futuristic technology gather together in a riveting coalescence of new and old that inspires the car lover young and old.

In the meantime, love your current Mercedes engine and hold out for these sweet future cars.

 

Tonight in Carmel, Calif., Mercedes-Benz unveiled the latest of its Maybach line: the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6.

The gullwing 2+2 concept has a low, sleek hood, a massive touchscreen inside, and an all-electric powertrain. It’s meant to show what a Mercedes-Benz car could look like, and do, in 10 or 15 years’ time.

Named for its 6-meter length, the Mercedes-Maybach 6 is totally electric, with a massive battery pack located along the bottom of the car. The engine can achieve 750 horsepower; the car will hit 60 mph in less than four seconds. It has an automatic driving function, although Mercedes executives said it’s meant to be driven.

Mercedes E-Class Protects In Case Of Nessie Attack

mercedes-e-class-nessie-commercial-clip

Cute Commercial Makes a Serious Point

Mercedes has posted some new adverts featuring a family watching for the mythical beast at Loch Ness. While the beast does not show up, the commercial explains the new safety features which activate upon detecting an oncoming crash which will protect the passengers from harm by moving them away from the impact zone.

So while your car might be totaled, you’ll live on to repair your car and drive again.

 

If you’re on the hunt for the Loch Ness monster, Mercedes-Benz has your back. More specifically, the Stuttgart company’s 2017 E-Class sedan and station wagon can protect your sides and your ears, should Nessie decide to charge or if the E-Class Pre-Safe features detect an imminent collision, according to Daimler.

New television commercials that Mercedes will also present on social media channels show a father and son parked by Loch Ness in Scotland, waiting for the fabled monster to appear.

While they wait, the boy watches intently from the backseat eating a sandwich while his dad nods off. The scene then switches to a disembodied, echoing voice explaining one of two new Mercedes safety features: Pre-Safe Sound and Pre-Safe Impulse Side. Continue Reading

Go Anywhere in this Benz – Who’s Gonna Stop You?

Mercedes have outdone their selves with the new Maybach S600 Limousine with safety and luxury features that will redefine what it means to be a top of the line stretch limousine. But for those who need the most premium protection on the market a Canadian after market upgrade service has released a chassis upgrade that makes the Maybach S600 into the heaviest and swankiest bullet proof car around.

 

Over the past 100 years, Mercedes-Benz has earned quite a reputation for building some of the toughest and most solidly engineered cars in the world. Sitting at the top of Mercedes’ lineup is the massive Mercedes-Maybach S600 limo.

The 5,300-pound luxury sedan offers more performance and safety than most people in the world would ever need. But there are a select few who need more protection than crumple zones and a lot of airbags. They need to stop bombs and bullets. They need armor. 

For these Mercedes-Maybach owners, Canada’s Inkas Armored Vehicle Manufacturing has come up with a Maybach that can offer some “extra protection.” Continue Reading

Is Cadillac Taking the 2016 CT6 too Big?

 

2016 Cadillac CT6, Los Angeles, CA

Cadillac CT6 Made Luxury (too) Big

At $55,000 MSRP, the 2016 Cadillac CT6 feels like it is a little more midrange than the luxury label that the brand pushes, but that doesn’t detract in any way from how impressive the car really is. More so than any other feature the car offers, it’s the size that makes this sedan worth looking into.

If Cadillac was looking to make a big splash with this year’s CT6, they certainly made one. Not necessarily from what the car offers, but more along the lines of its huge size would literally make a huge splash in a pool of water. It’s interesting that all the press photos for the car are in downtown environments considering you’d never be able to parallel park this beast, much less ever find a spot that actually fits its massive length and girth.

It’s things like this why I stick to my Benz and fix my normal-human sized Mercedes interior should I ever have to.

 

For years, Cadillac was the car you bought when you wanted something big and prestigious – the “standard of the world,” as it billed itself.

But in recent years, other luxury brands, particularly those from Europe, have garnered “must-have” status for many buyers instead.

Now, Cadillac is in the middle of trying for a big comeback, literally, with their new big car, the 2016 CT6.

For its starting price of about $55,000, the CT6 offers plenty of luxury, plenty of space inside, and plenty of technology. A variety of available engines are offered, and there’s an important element for cars in this class: rear-wheel drive. Continue Reading

How Not to Take a Test Drive

As shocking as it sounds, a woman in Arlington, Virginia has caused a rather impressive, but fortunately 0-casualty, 5-car accident while when test driving a new Mercedes SUV in the Mercedes parking lot she suddenly accelerated into 4 other vehicles including her own personal car, and then over-corrected away from the crash flipping the dealership’s SUV onto its side.

The woman is currently nursing her wallet and pride after having the extensive damage to multiple vehicles Bodies, especially the test vehicles.

 

There’s a terrible stereotype that women aren’t exactly the best drivers, and one incident that took place last Friday certainly isn’t helping to dispel it.

While taking a Mercedes-Benz SUV out for a spin at a dealership in Arlington, Virginia, a woman suddenly accelerated the brand new vehicle, striking four other cars — one of which was her own.

In a panic, she then proceeded to turn the wheel at such a sharp angle that the car ended up flipping onto its side, according to WRC. Continue Reading

Mercedes Gives Rights to E Class to Chinese BAIC

mercedes-benz-e-300-via-wikipedia

Benz Expands Further into China with E-Class Deal

The Chinese auto maker which Mercedes has taken 12% ownership of has received a heft gift from the German auto-maker which includes design and production rights to the Mercedes E-Class Sedan making BAIC the first Chinese auto maker to produce luxury sedans for the market.

While this will likely be unfelt around the rest of the world other than seeing Mercedes stock continue up in value, it does show a grand expansion of the Chinese auto industry in recent years.

For US patrons who are seeking to fix up a Mercedes Benz, click here and get that baby polished like new.

 

Daimler AG is giving China’s BAIC Motor Group permission to build cars using old Mercedes-Benz E-class designs and components, part of the German car maker’s effort to strengthen ties with its local partner in a country where its sales are rapidly growing.

The transfer of the outdated platform, essentially a shared basic chassis and design among vehicle models, clears the way for BAIC to become the first Chinese car maker to develop its own luxury vehicles. It will base its designs on the old Mercedes E Class.

Hubertus Troska, head of Daimler Greater China, said Monday that the transfer of the platform is part of an agreement the company and BAIC Motor Group made three years ago when Daimler bought a 12% stake in the Chinese state-run auto maker. Continue Reading

Mercedes Shoots Down Their Own Self Driving Bus

mercedes-bus-of-the-future

Mercedes Moving Ever Faster to the Future

Mercedes has once again made some crucial clarifying statements in regards to its self driving vehicles. Despite the Mercedes Future Bus passing its first long distance trip without driver assistance, Mercedes has clarified that they do not intend to have fully self driving vehicles, not just because it is illegal, but because they want this technology to go to helping current bus drivers rather than putting them out of a job.

It seems Mercedes wants to make driving an enjoyable and relaxing experience again for their customers. With that in mind, you should click here and see about upgrading your comfort.

 

Mercedes-Benz wants to completely change your bus-riding experience.

In July, the auto company unveiled its vision for the aptly named Future Bus — a semiautonomous bus that successfully completed a 12-mile route that included traffic lights, tunnels, and navigating around pedestrians.

To create the Future Bus, Mercedes built upon its platform for autonomous trucks to create a system optimized for buses dubbed City Pilot. It uses camera systems, radar sensors, and GPS to navigate safely.

But even though the Future Bus has autonomous features, Mercedes does not plan on releasing a fully driverless Future Bus. Continue Reading

Mercedes Gives Full Unveil Of Mercedes-Maybach 6

mercedes-maybach

The Mercedes-Maybach is a True Stunner

It is probably one of the sexiest renditions of a classic car we have ever seen.

The Mercedes-Maybach 6 is a gorgeous blend of modern and classic design elements that gives this Maybach a classy refined appearance while being modernized in many ways that makes it sleek which is accented even by its long form which puts a whole lot of room to stuff a huge powerful Mercedes Engine under that hood.

 

Mercedes-Maybach gave us a sneak preview of the incredible all-electric 738-horsepower Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 coupe concept at Monterey Car Week, and it’s a beauty.

Although they were stingy with images of the actual car, we rounded up some photos of the electric-powered concept in the metal, rather than the widely-revealed computer renderings you might have seen elsewhere.

The Vision 6 has got impressive power, vaulting from 6 to 62 mph in less than 4.0 seconds (that’s a 0-60 time of 3.9 seconds or better) and to a limited top speed of 155 mph. Continue Reading

Mercedes on Ferrari Crash

mercedes-benz-collides-ferrari

When Luxury Collides

There was an unfortunate accident at the Great Falls Cars and Coffee Gathering August 6th where a Mercedes driver failed to parallel park and crushed the hood of a gorgeous Italian Ferrari. While modern Mercedes have options that allow them to safely park themselves, this old model outdates that feature by quite some time.

If you have an old Mercedes suffering from chassis bumps and scrapes, click here and help restore that model to its original beauty.

 

The latest cars from Mercedes-Benz are available with self-parking systems that can autonomously steer them into a space without hitting anything. Unfortunately for one Virginia woman, that technology wasn’t available in the 1980’s.

The driver of a Mercedes-Benz 380 SL had some trouble parallel parking at the Great Falls Cars and Coffee gathering on August 6th, when she backed up into and onto the hood of a Ferrari.

The aftermath of the low-speed collision was caught on camera, as was the arrival of the Italian car’s owner. Suffice it to say, his NSFW language suggests that he was not pleased: Continue Reading

Mercedes Teases New Ultra-Luxury Coupe

mercedes-benz-luxury-teaser

Exciting New Benz Coupe on the Horizon

The German auto maker has left us very little to go with when their twitter posted “Hot & cool — Almost 6 meters of ultimate luxury.” This quote along with a vague silhouette of a red Mercedes unlike any other is their teaser and it leaves much to be excited for in the near future.

It is likely this is the new Maybach sub-brand coming back with a vengeance. While the Maybach brings back memories of classic luxury autos, this beast seems entirely sleek and new, we’re excite to see how this beast turns out but for those into classic cars and maintaining those ancient trustworthy engines, there is little chance for this relaunch to impress the connoisseur.

 

“Hot & cool — Almost 6 meters of ultimate luxury.”

That’s all that Mercedes-Benz has said so far about the sleek coupe pictured above. The photo and caption popped up on Mercedes’ official Twitter account on Thursday. 

So what’s this about?

A new ultra-luxury coupe from Mercedes-Benz? 

That red coupe is almost certainly a concept car that Mercedes intends to show at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California next weekend. Concept cars can be pure flights of fancy, or they can be close previews of upcoming production cars. This one is probably somewhere in between, likely intended to test the waters for a potential future model for Mercedes’ ultra-luxury Maybach sub-brand. Continue Reading

Car Critic Alex Roy’s In Depth Look at Mercedes Drive Assist

e-class-driver-assist-hud-night

Mercedes Benz’s 2017 E Class Drive Assist

Alex Roy burnt the midnight oil to deeply test and analyze the benefits and problems of Mercedes’ new top of the line Driver Assist mechanics which were a big step towards self driving cars. To put things briefly, he rather approved of a great many features Mercedes had progressed on and implemented well, but also lamented some critical failures of the system which he considered unsafe.

When push comes to shove though, the car’s features were mostly good, and with the right dedication you can toggle settings for achieving your perfect level of assistance while driving.

Unfortunately a lot of us who don’t have a new Mercedes will be missing out on some excellent life and fender saving technology.

 

What follows is a full review, as promised, of the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class’s Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), including the new Drive Pilot feature and what Mercedes calls “semi-automated” driving features. This is a follow-up to my original and disputed comparison of this technology suite to Tesla’s Autopilot semi-autonomous driving capabilities.

I note that this test included, over the course of one week, about 250 miles of real-world testing in a top-of-the-line E-Class with Premium 3 Package; 400 pages read (and re-read) of the E-Class owner’s manual; heavy perusal of the company’s website and public statements regarding Drive Pilot; and two undercover visits to dealerships to ask questions of the sales people.

Mercedes New Line Prefix Revealed

benz-logo

Ready for Your EQ-line Mercedes Benz?

For anyone interested in the new line of electric cars by Mercedes, it seems that the auto maker has made a move for securing their brand name as they have trademarked a grand array of variants of the letter pairing EQ. It also looks like the standard naming process will be MEQ followed by a final designation letter.

For those of use still settled on the roar of a gas engine, click here for all of your Mercedes engine needs.

 

Last week, I wrote about a Bloomberg piece that suggested Mercedes-Benz is on the verge of releasing a subbrand dedicated to electric vehicles. Now, it appears there’s more evidence to back up this claim, and that comes in the form of some pretty straightforward trademarks.

The German automaker applied to trademark the EQ prefix and several slogans including “EQ inside” and “Generation MEQ,” AutoExpress reports. Its trademark application for the prefix covers a variety of potential badges, from EQA all the way down to EQX. If this were a random trademark, it would be an awfully specific random trademark, although automakers do occasionally apply for patents and trademarks on ideas that may never make it to the public.

1930’s Mercedes Roadster Stolen in WW2 Set to Auction for 6 Million Euros

30s-benz-roadster-for-auction

’30s Benz Roadster with a History Set to Sell

Not only is this gorgeous 500k Special Roader by Mercedes-Benz only one of 29 existing models, it has also gained historic relevance. The Benz is said to have been owned by German industrialist Hans Prym who had lost the car to allied soldiers who had occupied his estate. In 2011 the Roadster was seized by the government and returned to the descendants of Hans Prym who have now set it for auction.

For your classic Mercedes needs, click here and find any parts you need for a tune up to keep the lifespan of your classic car maximized.

 

A rare Mercedes believed to have been stolen by Allied troops at the end of World War Two is up for auction with a £6 million price tag.

The 1935 Mercedes-Benz 500K Special Roadster was hidden on the estate of German industrialist Hans Prym, who was imprisoned in 1945, during the war.

But invading American troops stole the car while they lodged at Prym’s estate, according to Bonhams, which is handling the sale.

“It’s no surprise that the 500K appealed to Hans Prym, who was a highly successful industrialist,” said Philip Kantor, Bonhams European head of motoring. “The vehicle was vast, stately, and incredibly powerful, only to be possessed by the elite.” Continue Reading

Mercedes’ Counter Attack on Tesla

mercedes-benz-concept-car-tesla-beater

Can Mercedes Beat Tesla at Electric?

There has been quite a big fuss recently with the downturned market for luxury sedans and the huge growth rate of electric cars and their popularity. Tesla made it a point to show off these statistics to their investors.

It seems Mercedes has taken up these numbers and has 4 consumer electric automobiles in the works which will come as early as late 2017.

While it is expected that Tesla will have superior electronic interfaces, Mercedes style of electric car will no doubt feature unbeatable luxury interiors.

 

Tesla Motors (NASDAQ:TSLA) loves to point out that sales of its Model S rose sharply last year while other luxury brands’ big sedans lost ground. It went so far as to include this chart in its fourth-quarter report to shareholders in February:

Needless to say, executives at the German luxury automakers don’t feel the same love for Tesla’s chart. In fact, they’re steamed: More and more reports (like this one in Automobile Magazine, in which a Porsche product manager slams Tesla’s Model S) suggest that BMW (NASDAQOTH:BAMXF), Audi, Porsche, and Daimler‘s (NASDAQOTH:DDAIF) Mercedes-Benz unit aren’t just gearing up to launch more electric cars. They’re out to make Tesla look like amateurs. Continue Reading

NBA Hall of Famer Whacks Golf Ball into Mercedes

broken-mercedes-benz-window

Pro Athletes Not Necessarily Good at Other Sports

It really does seem like golf is not the forte of former Chicago Bull Artis Gilmore who recently smashed someone’s windshield while playing a few rounds of golf.

Fortunately the owner of the Mercedes, which lost its windshield, had insurance and will have it replaced, but advises Artis that perhaps he should stick to basketball.

 

It seems NBA Hall of Famer ­Artis Gilmore is less accurate with a golf club than he was on the court.

We’re told that while on the links on Long Island with Nancy Shevell’s ex-husband, Hempstead Councilman Bruce Blakeman, the 7-foot-2 former Chicago Bulls center launched his golf ball through the window of a nearby Mercedes.

The vehicle turned out to belong to Butch Yamali, owner of local institution Peter’s Clam Bar. Continue Reading

21 Puppies Rescued From Mercedes SUV

Puppies Saved from (What’s No Longer) a Luxury SUV

Police responded to a concerned citizen call which brought them to the Mercedes SUV that a 54 year old lady was using as her home in the Bronx along with a 4 year old German shepherd and 21 puppies. The puppies have been taken into shelters for recovery and have yet to be put up for open adoption.

While it is great news that the puppies are in good shape, it’s a shame the state the Mercedes SUV Interior was left in.

 

Authorities in New York City say they’ve rescued 22 dogs that were living with their owner in filthy conditions inside a Mercedes-Benz SUV.

New York Police Department officers alerted by a concerned citizen earlier this week found the 54-year-old woman and the dogs living inside the vehicle in the Bronx.

Authorities say a 4-year-old German shepherd named Bruno and 21 puppies were living in filth and needed medical attention when officers found them.

Two rescue groups are caring for the dogs. It’s unclear when they will be available for adoption.

The dogs’ owner was taken to a hospital for evaluation. Continue Reading

BMW Gets All Clear for Diesel but Mercedes Stuck In the Mud

mercedes-2017-sedan

More Waiting for Benz Diesels

The Volkswagen Diesel scandal has tightened regulations and testing on all imported cars to the United States and BMW is the first of the manufacturers to get through the new regulations process. Good news for BMW fans, but for anyone who wanted a 2017 Diesel Benz is likely going to wait until mid 2017 for the 2018 models.

Click here and get parts for getting your diesel up to emissions standards.

 

The EPA has now officially approved all of BMW’s 2017 turbodiesel models for sale here following a delay attributed to additional evaluation being performed in order to certify their compliance with U.S. emissions regulations.

The extra scrutiny, which resulted from Volkswagen’s high-profile diesel emissions scandal, has impacted all automakers with diesel offerings in their lineup.

In the case of BMW, those models include the 2017 328d Sedan, 328d Sports Wagon, X3 xDrive28d SAV, and the X5 xDrive35d SAV. Approval of some final homologation details is expected shortly, at which point production will begin.

While all four vehicles are expected to be in dealers some time later this year, BMW hasn’t set a hard date on when that will happen. Continue Reading

Mercedes-Benz Concept for 2030 Le Mans Prints Its Own Tires

mercedes-benz-dtw-concept-is-a-2030-le-mans-winner--martin-chatelier

Awesome Mercedes Le Mans Concept

While the vehicle is simply just a design and we have yet to see such propositions in action, the Benz for 2030 Le Mans features some exotic features including the ability to custom print its tires to suit the surfaces it is driving on. The silver arrow is also capable of compressing air while driving, which it uses as its fuel source.

Well since your current Benz doesn’t run off of the air it drives through (yet), you should look into optimizing your fuel system. .

 

At first, it looks like it has absolutely zero in common with the Mercedes-Benz design language. That’s because the LMP cars usually have to play by the rules of aerodynamics, so they end up looking more or less the same, regardless of their manufacturer. However, since his proposal won’t actually have to take part in a race, he had a lot more freedom of expression, so he managed to squeeze in a few details seen on recent Mercedes-Benz concepts.

Take the “headlights,” for example. If they look familiar, it’s because this styling has been used on cars such as the F015 Luxury in Motion or, more recently, on the IAA Concept Car. Apart from that, though, take the three-pointed star away and this car could present itself with any other badge out there, no questions asked. Continue Reading

Here Comes the Much Awaited 2017 E-Class Benz

Mercedes-Benz-E300

2017 Mercedes Benz E-Class is a Winner

Fans of the Mercedes brand name should know that the E-class is the brand’s top selling model and as the frontrunner of the luxury car brand, we were wracked with anticipation to see the upcoming big reveal.

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-class doesn’t disappoint, with the sleekest looking style of any E-class and enough features both optional and mainstay to get lost in for quite some time.

While your old Benz might not be able to compete with the new 2017’s array of features, click here and shop around for some accessories to spruce up your Benz.

 

Familiarity is part of the appeal of fast food franchises—you always know exactly what you’re going to get. Surprisingly, what works well for cheap burgers holds true for pricey luxury sedans. Drive almost any current Mercedes sedan—from the small C-Class to the lofty S-Class—and the same qualities of ride comfort, solidity, agility, and quietness shine through. Redesigned for 2017, the E-Class upholds family virtues while making some concessions to modern influences.

Mercedes-Benz has a lot on the line with this next-generation car, given that the E-Class is the brand’s top-selling sedan and the best seller in its class. Following its bookend siblings, the E-Class’ new styling is more curvaceous, losing some of the more rectilinear sharpness of its 2010-16 predecessor. Continue Reading

Mercedes-Benz Miracle in Declining Market

buying-a-car

Mercedes-Benz Sales in July Beat Trends

With the current US market looking in a grim state for luxury cars, with slow economy and increased interest in SUVs and Trucks, one would be rather surprised to hear that Mercedes is reporting growth this year with record setting sales in the month of July, and a 3.6% increase since last year.

The brand’s line of vans is also doing well, especially with the new US based factory specialized in producing them. With more Mercedes on the roads, previous owners might want to stand out, and nothing says luxury like Mercedes’ top of the line interiors.

 

At a time when sales of vehicles in the U.S. have been slowing and consumers are favoring trucks and SUVs over sedans, Daimler AG’s Mercedes-Benz was able to buck the trend, posting an increase in sales during the month of July.

But it wasn’t because the vehicle maker slashed the prices on its luxury vehicles or unveiled a new suite of gas-guzzling trucks and SUVs. In fact Daimler attributes it to its move to roll out three more luxury sedans in recent months.

“We are continuing to see strong momentum build into the third quarter, fueled by the recent launch of three of our dream cars,” said Dietmar Exler, president and CEO of Mercedes-Bemz USA (MBUSA) in a press release announcing the sales results for July. Continue Reading

Mercedes Shows How to Market To Millennials

mercedes-lights-flare

Getting Young Adults to Buy a Benz

The second biggest name in luxury automobiles has had some old troubles with marketing to younger audiences while still maintaining its prestige. Fortunately, more recently Mercedes-Benz has made some serious progress using social media influencers.

Taking the marketing out of their own hands and using sponsored popular social media personalities has been the perfect solution for maintaining the brand’s luxury image and expanding its market to younger consumers.

While you may not be the next sponsored video maker, you’ll want your Benz to look its best, so click here and get some sexy new rims.

 

One big challenge for most luxury brands today is how to appeal to a younger demographic without losing the extravagant feel of the brand. For Mercedes-Benz, that means creating compelling content on social — especially collaborating with influencers — to amplify what the brand is and why millennials need a Mercedes-Benz.

This year, Mercedes-Benz initiated a program called “MB Photo Pass” where it’s working with videographers, photographers and around 25 social media influencers like @loki_the_wolfdog across Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, Pinterest and YouTube. Continue Reading

Mercedes Unveils Plans for Unique Electric Line

mercedes-concept-elec-line

Mercedes Benz’s New Concept Electric Cars

The German auto-maker has finally revealed its plans for a new line of Mercedes-Benz cars that feature entirely new and unique models for their electric cars. Previously Mercedes has been refitting old models with electric engines, so this is a wonderful new change of style that comes with a 310 mile drive range.

Click here for all of your electrical needs for your Mercedes-Benz.

 

Bloomberg reports that Mercedes is working on its own lineup of electric vehicles to take on BMW and Tesla, and the German automaker will introduce a sub-brand to market them under.

Mercedes is currently developing two electric SUVs and two sedans and at least one of those vehicles will debut at this year’s Paris Motor Show. Previously, Mercedes CEO Dieter Zetsche confirmed that an electric car would be unveiled in late September in Paris.

Up until now, Mercedes has outfitted existing models with electrified powertrains, unlike what BMW did with its i sub-brand, which is comprised of two entirely new models separate from the rest of the lineup. Continue Reading

The Mercedes Beast of 2017

AMG-GTS

The Coolest Mercedes You’ll See this Year

If you hadn’t yet heard of or seen the Mercedes-AMG GT S, you should go look at some of the preview images of it floating around the net and then get back to me. Now that we’re all familiar, let’s remember that it’s a Mercedes and not a Jaguar or Porsche.

This monster is an outlier from Mercedes typical brand line, but that doesn’t mean it should be overlooked. It sports a whopping from the factory 193 MPH speed limit, zooms from 0 to 60 in 3.7 seconds, and the ground hugging center of gravity will ensure you fly down the road and feel the G forces of every wild turn. With a price tag hanging just a bit above $130,000, it’s no cheap ride – but certainly a good pickup for any sports car enthusiast.

Now considering few of us in the states can get away with maxing out that amazing top speed, and likely will never get a good chance to race it, it might be best to invest on overhauling your current Mercedes with a new top of the line Engine and reworking your suspension to get that low to the ground racer feel. You’ll thank me later when you’re not burning a gallon of gas every 18 miles.

 

The Mercedes-AMG GT S is not the car many expect from the tri-star folks. Far from the opulent S-Class and tot-toting GLS S.U.V., the two-passenger GT S clearly says “let’s race.” It’s speaking directly, and confidently, to the Audi R8 and Porsche 911.

“Something wicked this way comes — in yellow,” said an observer, gazing at the Mercedes simmering along the roadside. Indeed, this machine — replacing the longer gullwing SLS — cuts a seductive and menacing figure. The AMG Solarbeam paint on the test model I drove does look suitably wicked. I salute those extroverted souls who choose it over white or silver.

This is not an automobile for the masses, given prices that begin at $132,125. But that’s a bargain of sorts considering it is about 70 grand less than the asking price on the less-sophisticated SLS it replaces. Continue Reading

Daimler Invests over One-Billion Euros on New Mercedes Factory

Second Benz Factory Coming to Hungary

Mercedes has seemed to been relatively impervious to a hard market for auto makers, with low sells plaguing the market. The German fine auto producer has been running away as one of the sole car makers with positive growth rates, and now has invested a grand sum of money in a new Hungarian location for their new factory.

It’s yet to be clarified what exactly will be made at this new site other than that it will be producing a variety of automobiles. Speculation leads us to believe this may be a new site for Mercedes to expand its Hybrid production line as they intend to incorporate a few new models into this line by the end of next year. Another good possibility is that this factory will be a primary location for their fully electric cars coming in the near future as Mercedes does intend to have a wide range of models for their fully electric line, which means that the flexibility of this new factory’s technology could be fully utilized in production.

While it’ll be a while before you can reap any fancy new toys from this new factory, you may as well click here and get an up to date engine in your current Mercedes to keep you happy while you wait.
Daimler, the parent company of Mercedes-Benz, will invest one billion euros ($1.11 billion) to build a second manufacturing plant in Hungary. The factory, which will start producing vehicles by the end of the decade, will create 2,500 new jobs, the automaker says.

This is the second investment Daimler has announced this year for its Hungarian site in Kecskemet, a city approximately 56 miles from Budapest. In April, the company said it would invest around 580 million euros ($647.6 million) to expand and upgrade its existing plant, which produces compact cars.

The decision to build a second plant in Kecskem├ęt suggests Daimler’s bet on Hungary, a country with lower wages than Germany and other European countries, is paying off. The company spent more than 800 million euros (at the time about $1.07 billion) to build the initial plant there—its first new factory in more than a decade. Continue Reading

Diesel-Gate Delays Mercedes Diesel models

mercedes-benz-diesel--wayne-cunningham-cnet

New Diesel Benz Models Delayed

Due to the huge scandal involving Volkswagen cheating regulations for emissions, Mercedes Benz Diesel models will be delayed by a year before finally hitting the market sometimes in the middle of next year. It’s not just bad news for these two manufacturers, but for all of Europe’s auto manufacturers.

Volkswagen slipping their diesels past emissions testing has been a hard hit for themselves as well as their peers. The good news is that because of this scandal, the consumer eventually wins in the end as we will be brought better standards for our wait.

As we will all be waiting for a while, click here and check into affordable new Mercedes Benz diesel fuel system parts.

 

Dieselgate was Volkswagen’s mess, but that mess has spread to other automakers. Thanks to the resulting industry scrutiny, Mercedes-Benz has to delay the arrival of its C-Class diesel and other oil-burning luxury vehicles. What was supposed to arrive this year will now be here next year…hopefully.

While it should have landed at dealerships in the first quarter of this year, the Mercedes-Benz C300d will eventually make its way to the showroom sometime in 2017, Automotive News reports. The diesel variant of its new GLC-Class crossover will also be delayed.

There’s no firm release date for either. Mercedes-Benz didn’t immediately reply to our request for comment, but it did tell Automotive News that the C300d won’t show up until around mid-year, but that’s only an estimate. Currently, it’s selling just one diesel model — the GLE300d, formerly known as the M-Class. Continue Reading

Mercedes Postulates: Cars Can Grow on Trees

benz_alpha-wooden-car

Will Cars of the Future be Made of Wood?

While yet to have a release date, Mercedes Benz has given us a sneak peak at the Alpha, the first wooden chassis car of their line. The concept of making cars from wood might be raising many a skeptical brow, due to such things as deforestation and the material making a stand in for modern metal alloys. Perhaps this skepticism in the market is why we’re so far off from seeing this come to the market. However, Mercedes does offer some wonderful concepts with this new technology concept.

As it stands right now, trees are being genetically modified to grow faster than ever, and mixing that with centuries of tree shaping techniques, there is plenty of plausibility in growing some complex components out of wood so long as the structure is properly engineered for the stress that the genetically modified wood can handle, which is a lot more than people seem to be criticizing it for considering normal woods are already notably rigid.

Whether or not the Mercedes Alpha will come within any reasonable time span, it seems the auto-manufacturers greatest trial with this concept would be selling the concept to a market that has had iron and steel manufacturing since the Model-T, but perhaps the lighter material weight of the Alpha can contribute to an excellent gas mileage, or impressive range of travel should Mercedes go the electric route.

Nevertheless, seeing as there aren’t any wooden parts yet, if you want to start saving up for the wooden car of the future, you should look into tuning up your Mercedes Benz rather than buying or leasing a new car every couple of years. What makes getting your tune-up parts from our selection easier to save up for an awesome grown wooden car is that we offer a ten percent discount on everything that we offer.

 

When we imagine an automotive production line, we think of mostly metal parts being put together down an assembly line. The Mercedes-Benz Alpha concept challenges this modern manufacturing style by introducing an entirely new production method.

What if you could GROW your Mercedes?! That’s the idea behind the Alpha. It’s two-part wood frame/chassis is thoughtfully formed from the second a seedling is planted. Using age-old grafting and tree-shaping techniques, entire genetically modified, fast-growing groves could be shaped to efficiently produce the vehicle’s various components in an eco-friendly way. After harvesting the pre-shaped timber, each section can be carved to the appropriate shape to form parts of the frame.

With this technique, nature itself becomes the cleanest, most efficient manufacturer without any artificial and polluting production processes. In fact, the trees are clean air contributors while they grow. Furthermore, the final production unit’s electric power brings its total carbon footprint down to almost zero. Continue Reading

Shopping Tip for Automated Automobiles

tesla-garage

Looking for a Car to Drive (Itself) Around?

In a market saturated with the fancy new technology, it’s easy to get lost in the white noise of technical terms that have very little meaning. That is why above all when shopping for new automated/self driving cars, you should look into test driving before you buy. Each manufacturer, each engineer, and each car has its own style and degree of automated support.

For drivers not yet ready to invest in the emergent automated cars, click here and invest in a smoother ride in your current ride.

 

Last week, two big milestones in autonomous driving slipped by almost unnoticed.

One had to do with a commercial by Mercedes-Benz for the new E-Class. The car lets you drive without holding the steering wheel or using the accelerator and brakes for short periods (but also at very high speeds). However, they decided to pull the ad to avoid any confusion with fully autonomous cars from Google and other companies.

The other big news item had to do with a Tesla statement about the accident that killed a Model S owner in Florida. The company says the automatic brakes were to blame for the accident, not the somewhat poorly named AutoPilot mode that steers, brakes, and accelerates automatically. It’s a war of semantics.

Mercedes Beats Tesla to First Electric Semi-Truck

Race to Electric Truck Rigs is Over

Mercedes breaks out the upset of the century as they whip out the world’s first fully electric semi-truck just a week after the Tesla press conference in which they announced that they were working on a similar project. This upset is sure to be a major blow on Tesla’s reputation as the go-to high end E-car manufacturer as Mercedes encroaches further into the smaller companies market.

And in a world more concerned than ever about carbon footprints and the nature of pollution, it makes sense that the auto industry titan moves in to become the dominate force of the E-car market.

While we wait for the S-Class Electric Limo to be revealed, click here and keep your car’s electrical components fresh.

 

Daimler isn’t about to let Tesla own any more ‘firsts’ in electric transportation; the German company revealed the Mercedes-Benz Urban eTruck today in Stuttgart, an all-electric truck with a total admissible weight capacity of 26 tonnes (29 U.S. tons), which makes it the first clean energy big rig of its kind.

As the name implies, it’s designed for use in urban environments, capping off the short-sprint end of the heavy transport shipping cycle. That’s in part due to its max range of 200 kilometres (about 124 miles). The prototype Urban eTruck is ready for its close-up, but Daimler notes that we’ll have to wait until a “conceivable” launch window of “the beginning of the next decade” for wide-scale production and real-world use.

Own a Reliable Benz for Under $3000

benz-s-class--jalopnik

Mercedes Benz Ownership Doesn’t Have to be Expensive

Freddy Hernandez proves it doesn’t take a fortune to own a Mercedes S-class, but just a little mechanical and market know-how. It’s unfathomable to many to drive a luxury car on the regular as a day to day car to get you around to where you need to be, but Freddy proves it’s possible with a 16 year old S-class that he got for $3000 and has piled on 20,000 miles on since his purchase a few years back.

His secret is in the Mercedes Benz S500 which has a plethora of amazing features making it an excellent luxury car, but due to one easily fixable problem the car has plummeted in price over the years to be a ludicrously affordable car that will give a Civic a run for its money in almost every single category you could put the two in.

The only reason it matches the average aftermarket Civic in price is due to a critical fault that can cause the entire car to become water damaged in some ways you’d never heard of in modern cars. But this fault can be fixed by following simple online guides, and every other issue can be solved by buying replacement parts by clicking here and reading up on maintaining your Mercedes model.

 

Whenever I see a 1998 Acura Integra with a cursive decal on the front window saying “Daily Driven,” my reaction is a curt “Yeah, no shit.” However, if you own a heavily depreciated and insanely complex luxury car like I do, the prospect of driving it daily on a shoestring budget becomes exponentially more interesting, if only to outline how many things have gone wrong over the years.

For the last two years, I’ve owned a 2000 Mercedes-Benz S500. When it was new and Y2K was deemed a legitimate threat for people who didn’t understand how computers worked, it cost more than $100,000 in today’s money. It had more than 200 patents filed in its development, had a fiber optic audio system, double-paned windows, massaging seats, and it served as the flagship for the Mercedes-Benz brand, taking over the mantle of the tank-like W140 chassis.

Fourteen short years after its build date, I purchased it for a miserly sum of $3000. Continue Reading

Mercedes Benz Full Manufacturing Line in the US

Mercedes is going all in on a new production facility in North Charleston, South Carolina making it the first US factory owned by the company that will build every component of a vehicle to be assembled on location. This sets the Sprinter Van up to be Mercedes’ mainstay line in the Americas, which can be a letdown for many who appreciate the appeal of the classy Benz cars. For those who prefer the luxury cars from Mercedes, parts will be ordered from overseas as usual, but to save a quick buck click here and check out some parts already stocked up on this side of the Atlantic.

 

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) — Mercedes-Benz Vans, LLC is breaking ground on a $500 million sprinter van plant in North Charleston Wednesday.

Officials say the Sprinter plant will be one of the most advanced automobile production sites in North America.

A spokesperson says the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van makes history, as it will be built completely from scratch in the U.S. for the first time, right here in North Charleston.

The plant will be an additional 1.1 million square feet, which is twice the size of the existing reassembly facility, and will feature a new body shop, paint shop and assembly line.

The company also predicts that up to 1,300 positions will need filling by the end of the decade, when the plant is expected to open.

The ground breaking event is scheduled from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at  the new Mercedes-Benz Vans, LLC off of Palmetto Commerce Parkway. Continue Reading
