  1. Filed under: Mercedes-Benz,Sedan,Luxury,Performance The final piece of the inline-6-powered, midsize Mercedes-AMG lineup has been added: the 2019 Mercedes-AMG E53 sedan that will use the same 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six as the CLS53, and E53 coupe and cabrio. Producing the same 429 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque, it features the same 48-volt ultra-mild hybrid assist combined with a starter-generator and a small electrically-driven compressor in the intake tract to help reduce turbo lag.Continue reading 2019 Mercedes-AMG E53 sedan brings straight-six power to the traditional sedan 2019 Mercedes-AMG E53 sedan brings straight-six power to the traditional sedan originally appeared on Autoblog on Tue, 22 May 2018 12:38:00 EDT.

  4. Filed under: Etc.,Mercedes-Benz,Automotive History Mercedes-Benz produced the iconic R107 SL-class for nearly 20 years, and so expectations were high for its successor, the R129. Debuting in the 1990 model year, the new SL-Class looked futuristic and carried a fat price tag; here's a used-up '91 in a Denver-area self-service wrecking yard.Continue reading Junkyard Gem: 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Junkyard Gem: 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL originally appeared on Autoblog on Fri, 18 May 2018 15:37:00 EDT.

  6. Filed under: Mercedes-Benz,Convertible,Luxury,Performance In the Mercedes-AMG GT line, most body styles feature three or more levels of sportiness. The coupe is available in GT, GT S, GT C and GT R, and the sedan is available in 53 GT, 63 GT, and 63 GT S. But the roadster has been left out with just GT and GT C variants. That changes this year with the new GT S Roadster, which splits the difference quite evenly between the two drop-top sports cars.Continue reading 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster fills in the middle of the drop-top line 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster fills in the middle of the drop-top line originally appeared on Autoblog on Mon, 14 May 2018 00:16:00 EDT.

  7. Filed under: Motorsports,Ferrari,Mercedes-Benz,Performance,Racing Lewis Hamilton won the Spanish Grand Prix in a commanding Mercedes one-two on Sunday to stretch his Formula One lead over Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel, who finished fourth, to 17 points. The victory, in a race that stayed dry despite the threat of rain, was the Briton's second of the season, 64th of his career and third at the Circuit de Catalunya. It also set a record, one that Hamilton had previously shared with seven times champion Michael Schumacher, of 41 wins from pole position.Continue reading Lewis Hamilton wins Spanish Grand Prix, takes 17-point lead over Vettel Lewis Hamilton wins Spanish Grand Prix, takes 17-point lead over Vettel originally appeared on Autoblog on Sun, 13 May 2018 16:40:00 EDT.

  12. Filed under: Mercedes-Benz,Quick Spins,Sedan,Luxury Many cars that come into our office are pretty mainstream. They're Chevys, Toyotas, Hyundais and such. But sometimes we get something special, such as a 2018 Mercedes-Maybach S560 4MATIC. Now it is the "entry-level" Maybach with just the 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 and the lowest Maybach base price. But, it still starts at a not unsubstantial $168,600, which also makes it the third-most expensive S-Class behind the V12 Mercedes-Maybach S650 and the most expensive V12 Mercedes-AMG S65. That V8Continue reading This is what $175,000 gets you in a 2018 Mercedes-Maybach S560 This is what $175,000 gets you in a 2018 Mercedes-Maybach S560 originally appeared on Autoblog on Tue, 08 May 2018 13:49:00 EDT.

  13. Filed under: Spy Photos,Mercedes-Benz,Crossover,SUV,Luxury Based on new spy shots, it appears the new Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class is just about ready to be revealed. And the update can't come soon enough, considering the current version dates back to about the 2012 model year when it was still called the M-Class. Two versions of the midsize luxury crossover were caught, one of them likely the basic version, and the other with the AMG Line exterior upgrades.Continue reading 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class crossover spied inside and out 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class crossover spied inside and out originally appeared on Autoblog on Tue, 08 May 2018 10:30:00 EDT.

  14. Filed under: Mercedes-Benz,Hatchback,Sedan,Luxury,Performance It has become a tradition for Mercedes to create a special Edition 1 version of any new model it launches, regardless of whether it's an entry-level crossover or a fresh AMG-tuned car. And the new Mercedes-AMG GT four-door is no exception. Its Edition 1 will only be available on the top-spec GT 63 S with a 630-horsepower twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 and all-wheel drive.Continue reading 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S Edition 1 kicks off new model 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S Edition 1 kicks off new model originally appeared on Autoblog on Tue, 08 May 2018 02:00:00 EDT.
