2023 Mercedes-AMG SL - Performance, Price and Photos

2023 Mercedes-AMG SL - Performance, Price and Photos

The folks from Afalterbach have revitalized the SL-Class with new powertrains, cutting-edge tech and for the very first time, All-Wheel-Drive

The Mercedes SL (Sport Licht), which translates to Sport Light in German, is a car that set the benchmark for sport and luxury for nearly seven decades. The 300 SL name has its weight in gold and the latest Mercedes SL (the first one in nearly a decade) is the direct descendent of the SL Roadster from the early 1950s.

The 2023 Mercedes SL Roadster is a new car from the ground up and it essentially replaces the S-Class Cabriolet and the AMG GT Roadster. The folks from Affalterbach have worked extensively on the SL to transform it from a boulevard cruiser to a genuine open-top sports car, reminiscent of the original. Gone is the foldable hardtop roof and in comes a canvas soft top. Also, AMG is calling the SL Roadster a 2+2 and for the first time in the model’s history, 4-Matic All-Wheel-Drive now comes as standard.

2023 Mercedes-Benz GLC - Performance, Price and Photos

Mercedes updates its best-seller with refreshed styling, a swanky new interior, and hybrid-powertrains

This is the all-new second-generation 2023 Mercedes Benz GLC. Based on the MRA (Modular Rear Architecture) platform shared with the current C Class and S Class sedans, this latest iteration of the GLC brings a host of updates to its design, technology, and powertrains with an emphasis on sustainable mobility.

In a market that’s gone crazy about crossovers and SUVs, it should come as no surprise that the Mercedes Benz GLC is the German brand’s best-selling model globally, shifting 2.6 million copies if you include the old GLK Class.

If you recall, the brand from Stuttgart was one of the early adopters of the compact luxury crossover form with the boxy GLK back in 2008. Once that trend began to gain traction, Mercedes decided to create an all-new model based on the immensely successful C Class to create the GLC.

Top 10 EVs With The Longest Range In 2022

Here’s a list of the top 10 electric cars that offer the longest range in the U.S.

EVs have dawned upon us and have become competent mainstream alternatives to cars with internal combustion engines in the last few years. While their performance was never in doubt, available range has led to some pretty extreme anxiety. The range was one of the major reasons why most folks were skeptical about switching to green cars. But, things are quite different now. Technology is getting better every single day and automakers are able to improve the range of cars like never before. Gone are the days when achieving even 400 miles of range was a distant dream. Today, cars like Lucid Air offer more than 500 miles of range and Tesla more than 400 miles. Concept cars like the Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX claim to offer over 600 miles of range. It won’t be too long before that becomes a reality, too. For now, here is a list of EVs that offer the best range in 2022.

2022 Mercedes AMG SL63 - Performance, Price and Photos

The latest top-spec SL Roadster brings significant updates with an all-new platform, refreshed design, nicer interior, and up to date tech

This is the all-new Mercedes-AMG SL 63. The SL, which stands for Sport Licht in German, and translates to Sport Light, is an iconic model for the German marque. It can trace its lineage back nearly seven decades all the way to the early 1950s. But over the generations, the SL class went from being a sports car to a luxury cruiser. Fast forward to today and Merc has decided to ditch the boulevard cruiser body and has taken the SL back to its roots.

The Mercedes-AMG SL debuted in October 2021 and takes on a whole new form factor where it’s gone from a sportscar to a full-on supercar. Internally known as the R232, the seventh-gen SL will replace the AMG-GT Roadster. Also, for the first time in history, the SL will come with 4-Matic AWD as standard. In a bid to save weight (46 pounds), Mercedes has decided to ditch the folding metal hard-top for a more traditional soft top.

This is all you need to know about the most technologically advanced sports car from the 1990s that Mercedes dropped the ball on

The long history of Mercedes-Benz spawned plenty of amazing projects, many of which resulted in some of the greatest road-going and racing vehicles, we have ever seen. You only need to look at cars like the 300SL, 300SLR, CLK GTR, SLR McLaren, and others. There are, however, many cars that never saw the light of day. Among the most obscure projects to come out from Mercedes-Benz’s test facilities is the 1991 Mercedes C112.
