Mercedes-Benz

Mercedes-Benz is one of the most celebrated luxury carmakers of all time. Associated with premium vehicles since the early days, the German firm is now one of the most successful manufacturers in the luxury market. Established as Mercedes-Benz in 1926, the company goes back to the late 1800s. Founded as Benz & Cie. in 1883, it became Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft in 1890.

Although it’s mainly know for its cars, SUV, and race cars, Mercedes-Benz also manufactures commercial vans, buses, and trucks. Its current car and SUV lineup includes no fewer than 19 nameplates, some of which go back several decades. Iconic classics from the past include the 770K, 500K, 300SL, 190SL, and successors to the current S-Class, E-Class, and C-Class models. Throughout its history, Mercedes-Benz has operated factories in 30 countries spread over five continents.

2023 Mercedes AMG GT 63 Caught Testing For The first Time

2023 Mercedes AMG GT 63 Caught Testing For The first Time

It looks a lot like the SL, but it will also be a lot different

When Mercedes launched the new generation SL, it not only launched a replacement for the old generation SL, but also for the AMG GT Roadster. So, in the near future the only two models offered by the company will be the SL and the AMG GT Coupe.

Now that we have seen how the new SL looks like, Mercedes begun testing the coupe version. Today our spy photographers caught the next AMG GT testing, and we are not talking about a regular version, but the high trim GT 63 version.

We've Finally Spotted a Prototype of the 2023 Mercedes G-Class

We’ve Finally Spotted a Prototype of the 2023 Mercedes G-Class

What is this Mercedes G-Class hiding on the inside, though?

The Mercedes G-Class is due for an update, and it’s set to arrive for the 2023 model year. We expected to see at least one prototype, but up until now, it’s been hiding very well. All that has changed, though, and this prototype is sporting some changes – some so important the driver was very careful about hiding them.

To start, we can spot a new front end with a revised grille. There’s a new fascia in the rear as well, however, there’s not much else to say about the exterior thanks to the camo. Oddly enough, the headlights and taillights are identical to those of the current model, which means Mercedes engineers aren’t exactly done with the development process quite yet. Interestingly, however, there are some significant changes happening inside, but we weren’t able to see them because the driver was careful to cover them up.

The facelifted Mercedes G-Class is expected to arrive for the 2023 model year, so the production model should be revealed sometime before fall of 2022.

2022 Brabus 800 Adventure XLP Superblack

2022 Brabus 800 Adventure XLP Superblack

It makes the G63 AMG very black!

At the 2020 Geneva Motor Show, Brabus announced the 800 Adventure XLP - a very cool truck based on the Mercedes-AMG G63. We loved the work the tuner has done with the project, but we were shocked when we heard the price: €575,630 (or about $631,055 when it was launched).

Now, Brabus came up with a solution to make the Adventure XLP even more expensive. By about €150,000, to be more specific, for a car that this time is not even new - it comes with a mileage of 1,000 km (621 miles). The new package is called Brabus 800 Adventure XLP Superblack and, as the name suggesst, it is about giving the original car a darker, meaner look.

It’s not been too long since the new SL was revealed, but Mercedes has already decided to continue with developing the new GT coupe.

2023 Mercedes GLE Coupe Facelift Caught Testing In Sweden

2023 Mercedes GLE Coupe Facelift Caught Testing In Sweden

Changes will be minimal, which is the same case for the rest of the GLE lineup

The current generation Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe was announced back in 2019, and, despite being only two years old, it looks like it will get an update at the same time as the rest of the GLE lineup. If back in December 2021 the standard GLE Coupe was playing in the Scandinavian snow and then, earlier in January 2022, we spotted the GLE 53 testing in the same winter conditions, today it was time for the facelift GLE Coupe to go out for snow testing.

2022 Mercedes-AMG E53 Cabriolet

2022 Mercedes-AMG E53 Cabriolet

What in the world does the AMG E53 Cabriolet even compete with, and is it able to hold its own?

The Mercedes-AMG E53 Cabriolet sort of sits in a niche of its own, mainly due to the lack of performance convertibles on the market. Its closest competition, as of the time of this writing, is the BMW M4 Convertible, which offers quite a bit more power at a similar price, or the Lexus LC500 Convertible, which is considerably more expensive. The biggest highlight of the 2022 AMG E53 Cabriolet is arguably its impressively appointed and nicely equipped cabin and the turbocharged straight-six under the hood that can, in fact, raise your blood pressure. Paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission and standard all-wheel drive, the AMG E53 Cabriolet is as gorgeous as it is quick and is designed to excite and soothe your soul at the same time.

2023 Mercedes CLE Convertible Exposed in New Spy Shots

It will replace both the C-Class and the E-Class, in both coupe and convertible versions

Everyone knows by now that Mercedes-Benz has big problems selling both the C-Class and the E-Class coupe and convertible. And, this comes as no surprise since the market right now is paying more interest to SUVs and crossovers. So, the German company decided to kill both models, but it will also take a very bold move: it will replace the two models with a new CLE model, placed in between the C-Class and the E-Class. Also, both coupe and convertible versions will be offered.

Today, the CLE Convertible was caught during cold weather testing in Northern Sweden.

The upcoming Mercedes-Benz C-Class has been spotted testing in Germany

The 2023 Mercedes GLC Spied with a C-Class Interior

The 2023 Mercedes GLC Spied with a C-Class Interior

This is our best look year at the next-gen 2023 Mercedes GLC, and the interior looks damn impressive

The next-gen Mercedes GLC is scheduled to debut sometime in 2022 with sales to commence for 2023. We haven’t seen it much since the shift to fall of 2021, but these latest shots, do shed some interesting light on the upcoming crossover. It should be noted that this prototype is still rocking a full body wrap, which tells us that Mercedes isn’t really close to the being ready for the full reveal. We’d speculate at this point, that it won’t be until at least summer of 2022 at the earliest. That said, we do finally get a good look at the interior, and wow – it’s impressive.

As you can see from the image above, the GLC’s interior seems to be largely inspired by the latest C-Class, which in turn, is inspired by the latest S-Class. The spy shots reveal that new instrument panel display and the angled in-dash infotainment screen. It remains to be seen if it’ll get the adjustability of the screen in the new Mercedes-AMG SL, but it wouldn’t be as needed in a crossover, so I wouldn’t hold my breath. Unfortunately, the rest of the interior is covered in black cloth, so we can’t make out much else, but this is at least a start.

As for the powertrain offerings, the new GLC will ride on Merc’s Modular Rear Architecture, which means it’ll have the same underpinnings as the C-Class sedan. As such, they two models will likely share powertrains. Including something performance-oriented with an AMG badge. The entire lineup should consist of turbocharged, four-cylinder engines, with he most powerful AMG models coming a year or two after initial launch.

The CLA four-door coupé is the next most affordable vehicle at $33,100, while the GLA is the cheapest SUV at $33,950 before options.

What is the Sportiest Mercedes-Benz?

Mercedes-Benz may be famous for luxury cars, but it’s equally famous for sporty vehicles for the road and track. It’s the AMG division that’s usually responsible for these cars. As of 2019, most of the company’s nameplates come in AMG guise, but some are sportier than others. The Mercedes-AMG GT R is arguably the most track oriented vehicle on offer. Essentially a race car for the road, it features a 4.0-liter V-8 engine rated at 577 horsepower and it rides on a chassis that includes many race-bred parts. This car is heavily related to the AMG GT3 and GT4 race cars, although it aerodynamics aren’t as aggressive.

The third most expensive Merc is the AMG S65 version of the S-Class sedan, priced from $232,550.

The Mercedes-AMG GT R is the fastest vehicle you can buy from Mercedes-Benz. Its twin-turbo, 4.0-liter V-8 engine enables it to hit 60 mph from a standing start in just 3.5 seconds. Its top speed is also superior to other Mercedes-Benz models at 198 mph. The AMG GT R is the fastest Merc on the Nurburgring track as well with a 7:10.9-minute lap.

Are Mercedes-Benz Cars Reliable?

Mercedes-Benz cars become famous for their rock-solid reliability in the 1960s and 1970s, but the brand’s dependability decreased in the modern era. In the mid-2000s, Mercedes-Benz rarely scored above average in surveys by Consumer Reports and similar outlets and some of its models were declared unreliable in the mid-2010s. The company’s reliability ratings have gone up a bit in recent years though, with Mercedes-Benz usually placed above rivals like BMW, Audi, Porsche, and Infiniti. However, the brand’s vehicles falls behind cars from Lexus and Tesla. J.D. Power gave Mercedes-Benz a similar rating in 2018.
