Humvee Maker Will Now Handle R-Class Production

Based on several news sources, Mercedes-Benz recently turned to AM General to handle the production of the R-Class. AM General is popular for making the High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV), or the Hummer. To be honest, I thought the R-Class was already history, so I was quite surprised about the recent development centering on the range. My first reaction when I saw the headlines was, “Really, the R-Class is still around?” It should be noted that the R-Class wasn’t quite as popular as the other series of the three-pointed star brand. When it was launched in 2005, its sales figures were way below expectations. In its best year, only… Continue Reading »

Tortoise Vs Hare Mercedes Ad: And the Winner Is

Remember the ad of Mercedes-Benz that we mentioned earlier about the race between the tortoise vs hare? The one that the three-pointed star brand made for the Super Bowl? Well, we just got the results, and the winner was the tortoise. Just like the original story seen in Aesop’s Fables and even in Bugs Bunny cartoons, the tortoise overcame the odds. However, in the modern version of Mercedes, the creature in the half-shell got some unlikely help from a sports car. It seemed that the rule of the race never mentioned the allowed ways for the two competitors to cross the checkered flag. So capitalizing on that loophole, the tortoise grabbed himself a… Continue Reading »

Mercedes-AMG CEO Hints Plans for Hybrid Supercar

Mercedes-AMG may be planning something in its backyard. A report suggested that the performance division of the three-pointed star brand responsible for the Mercedes-AMG GT may be considering a hybrid supercar. If so, then we might be looking at the marque’s answer to the Porsche 918 and McLaren P1. According to Motor Trend, it was just less than a year ago when Tobias Moers denied point-blank if they were planning to make a hybrid powercar that would rival the Porsche 918. The answer was a straight “no” from the Mercedes-AMG CEO. However, as we have witnessed before, Mercedes is not a brand that would keep a word “no” or “never” in its dictionary,… Continue Reading »

Steve Cannon Confirms a Mercedes-Maybach E-Class

It seems that the future looks bright for the Mercedes-Maybach as a lot of plans for it have been revealed just recently. Now, another range has been officially confirmed to receive the ultra-luxurious treatment from the sub-brand of the three-pointed star marque. According to Steve Cannon in his interview with Automotive News, they are also looking to make a Mercedes-Maybach E-Class. The revelation of Steve Cannon supported the statements of Dr. Dieter Zetsche and Dr. Hermann-Joseph Storp about the mass expansion of the resurrected Maybach name as a sub-brand of Mercedes. It should be noted that the Daimler CEO and his development director for Mercedes-Benz S-Class particularly pointed out that there… Continue Reading »

Will There Be a Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series

  The Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series is definitely a monster within a car due to its 6.2-liter V8 engine capable of reaching an output of 622 hp and 468 lb-ft of torque. Then, it has a very aggressive styling that will surely make someone think twice of taking the car on a red-light challenge. When the Mercedes-AMG GT came out, which was the spiritual successor of the SLS AMG, people surely had a lot of expectations with the new sports car of the three-pointed star brand. Despite the Mercedes-AMG GT being unique and impressive in its own way, people just can’t help but compare it with its predecessor. So,… Continue Reading »

It’s still a bit of time before Mercedes-Benz USA actually packs its bags from its current Montvale, NJ headquarters on to the greener pastures of Atlanta, but there’s already one harsh reality that the automaker has to face: the talent that will be lost because of the move. MB USA CEO Steve Cannon said that offers had already been made to Montvale personnel and that the company would be waiting for responses on who will be amicable to a relocation. It was not said how many of the 1,053 employees had been given offers, but Mr. Cannon did say that he expects only 40 percent of the employees would be moving to the… Continue Reading »
