• Changes to latest ML seem small, but are significant FAST FACTS 1. The standard 3.5L V6 gets direct injection to increase power to 302-hp and 273 lb-ft of torque, while fuel economy also improves to 17/22-mpg. 2. The BlueTEC diesel makes 240-hp and 455 lb-ft of torque, and is rated at 20/25-mpg. 3. Despite being an all new model with new equipment Mercedes has held pricing on the 2012 ML, starting at $49,865 or $51,365 for the BlueTEC diesel. Despite the ML’s less-than-glamorous reputation for poor reliability and questionable assembly, Mercedes-Benz stuck with the project, investing billions of dollars into the Alabama facility. The follow-up in ’05 was a redemption in terms of design, dynamics and overall quality. Mall parking lots full of the luxury SUV are the loudest confirmation it had the right combination of style, power and safety. After another seven years, the ML is up for replacement, but with heavy competition coming from both established players in the segment and high-profile new entries, Mercedes-Benz won’t have it easy. In 2012, it’s no longer enough to just have the three-pointed star on the grille – it has to deliver much more than that. NEW LOOK, NEW PLATFORM The result is an SUV that’s slightly longer and wider, but shorter than before. The exterior seems less dramatic, but does carry over the sharper eyes, LED running lights and wide rear arches from MB’s latest sedans and coupes. The rear treatment mimics the new E-Class Wagon, but ...

  • Mercedes-Benz 280 SE W108 vs BMW 2800 E3 — test-drive Mercedes-Benz 280 SE W108 vs BMW 2800 E3 — test-drive 2014 Drive-My Giant test — Mercedes-Benz 280 SE W108 vs BMW 2800 E3 . Photography: John Perkins . Hardly more than a decade ago the possibility that BMW and Mercedes-Benz could be mentioned in the same breath would have appeared extremely unlikely. Then came BMW’s return from the edge of collapse to begin a steady upward climb of improvement that even now shows no signs of levelling off. This classic case of a company’s renaissance is based on the success of the 1500, 1600, 1800 and 2000 saloons. With these cars BMW sensibly took care to avoid a head-on clash with Daimler-Benz . Then came the 2500 and 2800 BMWs . not just direct enlargements of the four-cylinder cars but completely new and, at last, openly competing with Mercedes. Or almost competing, for both firms have too much respect for each other as hardy independents in an industry mainly composed of anonymous groups to indulge in excessively vicious competition. BMW likes to think that its six-cylinder models are that much more sporting, less staid, than those of the people up the road and that they are consequently finding a different market. Be that as it may, prices are closely matched. And BMW was unable to restrain a smile when, recently, it outsold Mercedes in the car field. The smile, though, was tempered by the knowledge that Mercedes’s considerable output of diesel cars had not ...

  • Used Models While Mercedes-Benz will always be a quintessentially German automaker, its M-Class SUV has always been an American at heart. To begin with, it’s built in Alabama and has been since it first burst onto the scene as one of the first luxury SUVs. The U.S. of A is also the M’s primary market, as its sizable dimensions and traditionally thirsty engines play much better in Frankfort, Kentucky, than they do back in Frankfurt, Germany. Regardless of its origins, however, each generation of the Mercedes-Benz M-Class has been better than the last. This is especially true of the second generation, which replaced the original model that soldiered on through eight years of subpar reliability and build quality. As such, used shoppers are urged to consider the M-Class from 2006 and later. If you’re interested in a new model, however, the latest, third-generation M-Class is a subtle evolution of the previous one, upping the ante with even more power and features. It’s a solid choice for a midsize luxury SUV, but there are many worthwhile and cheaper competitors in the premium SUV segment. As such, it’s certainly worth a look around before you settle on this Germanic American. Current Mercedes-Benz M-Class The Mercedes-Benz M-Class midsize luxury SUV has been completely redesigned for 2012. The exterior styling strikes a balance between traditional M-Class cues and the latest ones from the Mercedes-Benz line. As always with a Mercedes, however, it’s ...

  • Storia e profilo [ modifica | modifica sorgente ] Genesi [ modifica | modifica sorgente ] È da poco prima del lancio della Classe C W202 che la Casa di Stoccarda ha in mente di derivare da quest’ultima una roadster che andasse a posizionarsi sotto la più esclusiva SL R129. Al momento della presentazione della W202, erano già stati diffusi alcuni schizzi riguardanti la futura piccola roadster, e già quei primi disegni si capiva la volontà dei vertici Mercedes-Benz di proporre qualcosa di particolare. Lo si capiva osservando che in quei disegni il tetto della vettura non era costituito dalla classica capote in tela, bensì da un tetto ripiegabile in metallo. Si sarebbe trattato di qualcosa di inconsueto, anche se sicuramente di già visto, anche se molto tempo prima. Fu infatti la francese Peugeot. oltre sessant’anni prima, a proporre questa soluzione così particolare. Poi, nei decenni successivi non si vide più niente del genere nella produzione automobilistica in serie. La nuova roadster tedesca avrebbe quindi riproposto questa chicca particolare per catturare l’interesse della potenziale clientela. Le prime impressioni si consolidarono ulteriormente nel 1994. quando al Salone di Torino venne svelato il primo prototipo prefigurante la roadster definitiva. In questo caso, la vettura non montava nessun tetto in metallo, né tantomeno una capote in tela. La soluzione del tetto metallico ripiegabile riapparve però alla presentazione del secondo prototipo, ...

  • 15 January 2008 Mercedes-Benz presented two versions of its concept Vision GLK compact SUV at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Both models, which differ in styling approach, feature new BLUETEC four-cylinder diesel engines mated with the 7G-TRONIC seven-speed automatic transmission and the new 4MATIC all-wheel drive. This marks Mercedes’s first implementation of the BLUETEC emission control system with a four-cylinder engine. A similar 2.2-liter diesel with BLUETEC will be used in the planned S 300 BLUETEC hybrid. (Earlier post .) The new 2.2-liter unit delivers 125 kW (170 hp) of power in its application in the “Freeside” GLK style variant, and 150 kW (204 hp) in the “Townside” variant. The Townside engine employs more boost pressure for a sportier drive. The engines both offer 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque at 1,600 rpm. Both feature a fourth-generation common-rail direct injection with an injection pressure of 2,000 bar, as well as a two-stage turbocharger system. This puts our four-cylinder engine on a torque level recently only matched by 3-liter, six-cylinder diesel engines or even eight-cylinder gasoline power plants. And we achieve excellent fuel consumption figures of about 35 mpg, which is equal to 6.7 liters per 100 kilometers. —Thomas Weber, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG, Group Research Development Mercedes-Benz Cars In the GLK implementation, BLUETEC relies on an oxidizing catalytic converter and maintenance-free ...

Slated for arrival in showrooms in the Spring of 2013 smart (officially all lower case) also has a slightly more expensive cabriolet model priced at $US28,000. The company also says that its customers could recoup up to $US7500 in various tax credits offered by the myriad of tiers of US government(s). smart fortwo ed Being small on US roads now appears to be a good thing. smart (note correct capitization) says it’s electric drive version of the ForTwo (incorrect capitalization) has the smallest carbon footprint of any car on U.S. roads, a claim which sounds like it could be accurate as there are still V10 Hummers rolling around dropping the kids off at school (as I observed in L.A.). The company says that the fortwo (what the. ) was always designed with electric drive in mind more than 20 years ago. Hmmmm. yeah right. So when electric drive-trains showed up, there was no change to manufacturing. As it turns out, the smart ED battery slots in precisely where the fuel tank sits. It’s easy to guess where that is because there’s no room anywhere else to put such a thing: that’s right, under the floor between the front and rear wheels. Coincidentally Tesla put their battery there too. But that’s not all, the electric motor fits ...

But that’s rather like describing the Seattle Seahawks simply as a football team in the West Division of the NFC. Just like the Seahawks, the CLS class cannot be defined by generic descriptions. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLS550 and uber powerful CLS63 AMG strike the perfect balance between luxury and incredible power, between sophisticated design and handling. The CLS class is for the Mercedes-Benz (or Porsche or Audi or BMW) driver who loves the luxury but wants more excitement out of the driving experience. The Luxury Sedan that Drives Like a Sports Coupe In a sense the CLS is the Bad Boy version of the more sedate E and S Class models. Its eye catching sharp lines, aggressive grill and muscular stance promises something different, something more adventurous than the diplomat hauling S or the CEO businesslike importance of the E. While it has an exquisite cabin equal in luxury, attention to detail and technology as the E Class and S Class, the CLS has a whole different personality once you turn on the engine. It starts under the hood with a standard twin turbo 402 hp V8 for the CLS550 or the 550-hp CLS63 AMG or the even more potent 577-hp engine in the CLS63 AMG S. The base engine ...

  • Mercedes-Benz G-Class Price Analytics About Mercedes-Benz G-Class The Mercedes-Benz G-Class was originally developed for military use back in the 1970s as a heavy-duty four-wheel-drive conveyance, but it has been updated over the decades and given as many luxuries, conveniences and refinements as possible. Not that there’s any denying the G’s utilitarian roots: At nearly 3 tons, describing it as an over-engineered, leather-lined rolling bank vault would be an apt portrayal. It’s tall with a healthy step-in height, its doors close with a reassuring clunk, space efficiency is unexceptional and its heft contributes to poor fuel economy and ponderous handling. So is it practical? Not really. Capable? Definitely. Desirable? Oddly, yes. As such, the Mercedes-Benz G-Class isn’t the best choice for a single or even two-vehicle household, but if you’ve got a multicar setup with spots for a variety of cars, the G-Class is one cool super truck to add to the fleet. Current Mercedes-Benz G-Class The Mercedes-Benz G-Class is a five-passenger SUV offered in a single G550 trim that comes fully loaded with many of the luxury and technology items found in modern Mercedes. There are no factory options, but one can sample from the extensive designo catalog of custom-order paints, leather colors and interior trim choices. The G550 is equipped with a 5.5-liter V8 generating 382 horsepower and 391 pound-feet of torque. Power is transmitted through a seven-speed automatic ...
