2022 Mercedes-AMG GT 53: Not As Hair-Raising As Its Two-Door Sibling

2022 Mercedes-AMG GT 53: Not As Hair-Raising As Its Two-Door Sibling

Is 6 Cylinders Enough?

One of my favorite test drives in recent memory is of the AMG GT R Coupe - a spectacular 2-seater with exotic-car looks; ready for the racetrack right out of the box. So, you’d think a 4-door version of that car would be nearly as exciting, right? well, I’m discovering this week that this GT 53 has a completely different personality; one that doesn’t raise the heartbeat to a full-on AMG level.

2022 Mercedes EQC 400 Review - The Electric SUV With Hidden Character

2022 Mercedes EQC 400 Review - The Electric SUV With Hidden Character

The Mercedes EQC 400 is the first all-electric Benz - is it worth the hype?

Among the big automotive brands, Mercedes has one of the most comprehensive EV lineups currently on the market. The Mercedes EQC was introduced back in 2019 and is the first Mercedes EV. Recently, we got to drive the Mercedes EQC 400, which at this point in time, is the only available version of the compact luxury SUV. The EQC is the founder of the Mercedes’ all-electric, EQ lineup and these are our impressions.

2022 Mercedes EQS 580 4MATIC Review: Tech Laden and Eager to Please

2022 Mercedes EQS 580 4MATIC Review: Tech Laden and Eager to Please

The Mercedes EQS is the cream of the EV crop, and while it might be quite expensive, it blows Tesla out of the water

The barrage of electric cars has only just begun and my internal voltmeter is pinned to the right. I love this progression of the automobile and the way it’s transforming the driving experience, and the EQS is as transformative as they come.

As of today, Mercedes offers one EV in the U.S. market, and this is it - the EQS Sedan, with a starting price of $103,360 (including destination.) This commences MB’s top-down approach to fleshing out their electric offerings; soon to be joined by an SUV of the same name, an E-Class-like midsize sedan called the EQE, and a more attainable compact SUV called the EQB (not to mention a pair of racy AMG variants.) The goal is to make every newly-developed Mercedes electric-only starting in 2025, while at the same time having an EV alternative for every model the company makes. If it has an EQ in front of its alphanumeric name it’s electric.

2022 Mercedes-Benz E450 All-Terrain Review: The Perfect SUV Alternative?

2022 Mercedes-Benz E450 All-Terrain Review: The Perfect SUV Alternative?

The E-Class Wagon is only available in Crossover-Esq All-Terrain guise. It offers seven seats with best-in-class cargo space

It’s a classic car-enthusiast grumble: “All these SUVs are nothing but tall station wagons.” But what happens when you get a station wagon that’s almost like a low SUV? That’s the 2022 Mercedes-Benz E450 All-Terrain, currently the only way you can still get an E-Class station wagon.

The E-Class wagon takes everything that makes an E-Class sedan great — fantastic ride and handling, a beautifully finished interior, cutting-edge technology, a decadent overall experience — and nearly three times the trunk space (35 cubic feet of trunk space instead of 13). But starting last year, Mercedes decided this much cargo space needs some SUV trimmings and created the All-Terrain.

What that means is gray plastic cladding, four-wheel height-adjustable air suspension, and standard all-wheel drive. It comes in at a steep base price of $68,400, which is higher than even most luxury SUVs. We spent a week testing the 2022 E450 All-Terrain and here’s what we found.

2022 Mercedes EQS 580 Test Drive: The Definition of Luxury, Electrified

2022 Mercedes EQS 580 Test Drive: The Definition of Luxury, Electrified

Here’s what the most powerful, non-AMG version of Mercedes’ flagship EV is like to drive

The Mercedes EQS is already on sale as the brand’s EV equivalent to the Mercedes S-Class. The EQS is currently being offered in five different flavors, two of which are AMG variants. Power ranges from 288 horsepower in the base EQS 350 to 761 horsepower in the AMG EQS 53. We recently got the chance to drive the Mercedes EQS 580, which is the most powerful version of the EQS before you step up to the AMG models. I’m here to tell you that it’s better that you’d expect.

2022 The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S E Performance F1 Edition Represents $25,000 Worth of Appearance Upgrades

2022 The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S E Performance F1 Edition Represents $25,000 Worth of Appearance Upgrades

There are no mechanical updates, but it does make the GT 63 S E-Performance look a lot better

We thought the AMG GT 63S E-Performance couldn’t be upgraded any further, but Mercedes just proved us wrong - at least when it comes to aesthetics. This year AMG celebrates its 55th anniversary and we’ve already seen a lot of special models designed especially for the event. After several AMG 55 editions – including the ones based on the A35, CLA 45 and G63, Mercedes announced the AMG GT 63S E-Performance equipped with the "F1 Edition" package. The model is now available for order and in Europe, the price of the F1 Edition package is €23,800 (roughly $25,000 at the current exchange rates).

2022 Mansory Gronos EVO S P900

2022 Mansory Gronos EVO S P900

900 horsepower and a sporty look seems like the perfect recipe for the G63

Mansory has a very long history of updating the Mercedes-AMG G63. Just recently, the tuner unveiled two special editions built for the Chinese and the UAE markets. And, because the Middle East is such a big fan of big, luxury, flashy cars, Mansory announced a new special edition built exclusively for them.

If the name sounds familiar - Gronos EVO S P900 - it is because the tuner offered a car with a similar name back in 2021.

2022 Mercedes-AMG GT R By BS Teile Center

2022 Mercedes-AMG GT R By BS Teile Center

903 horsepower seems more appropriate for a car like the GT R

Who said only tuners can work on updating sports cars? Take BS Teile Center, for example. Its origins are rooted in selling used Mercedes-Benz parts, but this didn’t stop it from creating the perfect AMG GT R. And, it did this just by using original parts from model variants with superior features and drive systems.

2022 Brabus Crawler

2022 Brabus Crawler

This AMG G63-based Brabus creation is the perfect vehicle for summer fun!

Summer is just around the corner and all we can think about is outdoor fun. The problem is that there are not many fun buggies out there. The good news is that, like usual, Brabus has our back: the tuner has come up with a hardcore buggy based on the Mercedes-AMG G63.

Limited to only 15 examples, the new Brabus Crawler is priced at €749,000 (almost $800,000 at the current exchange rates). Brabus will build five copies in 2022, five in 2023, and the final five in 2024. Unfortunately, the buggy is not street legal.

2022 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Night Edition

2022 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Night Edition

The ’Night Edition’ gives the E-Class a very mean appearance

Mercedes-Benz is not the only automaker out there to offer a Night Edition package. In fact, this has been quite a popular name among the special editions lately. For example, Hyundai is offering a Sonata N Line Night Edition, while Ram added the same name to its 1500 and Heavy Duty models.

However, the name has the longest history in the Mercedes-Benz lineup. It has even been offered for models like the Maybach S 650. But, the latest addition is for the E-Class lineup, including coupe, cabrio, sedan, and station wagon, with the exception of the AMG models.

2021 Mercedes-AMG E63 S Brabus 800

2021 Mercedes-AMG E63 S Brabus 800

With specs like 780+ horses and 0-60 mph in three seconds, Brabus has elevated this top-spec AMG E-Class model to unimaginable levels

When you think of high-end aftermarket companies, some of the top names that come to mind include Hennessey, Mansory, and Brabus. While Hennessey is known for outright performance builds and Mansory for the most radical and unusual mods, Brabus is a blend of the two. It is back with yet another Mercedes build, this time, for the AMG E63 S called the Brabus 800. New wheels and aerodynamic elements on the outside, plush treatment on the inside, and power enhancement to the existing V-8 make this Brabus build an absolute beast.

2022 Brabus 900

900 horsepower for the Maybach GLS sounds even better!

Last year, Brabus unveiled the Brabus 800 package for the Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 4MATIC. It took the SUV’s V-8 engine up to a total of 800 horsepower, which was about 250 horsepower over the standard numbers. Today, however, the tuner decided that the GLS 600’s output can be updated even further, and it came up with a new package for the luxury SUV. The new kit is called Brabus 900, and as the name suggests, it delivers a total of 900 horsepower.

2022 Mercedes-AMG A 35 "Edition 55"

AMG continues its 55th-anniversary celebration with a new special edition A35 model

AMG continues the celebration of its 55th anniversary with a new "Edition 55" model. Back in March, we saw the launch of the AMG G 63 "Edition 55", and a month later, the company announced the new AMG A 35 "Edition 55".

In Europe, the "Edition 55" equipment package will be priced from €12,614 - or about $13,700 at the current exchange rates. The anniversary models can be ordered starting now until November 2022.
