Despite this uncertainty, a shooting brake variant of the latest sports car offering of Mercedes-Benz was rendered recently. A shooting brake is considered to be a car with perfect appeal, which makes it necessary for everything to convey conviction and accuracy. Since Mercedes-Benz already created the CLS Shooting Brake and a CLA Shooting Brake is expected to be unveiled next year, it is only rational to expect the luxury vehicle manufacturer to produce such a version for the AMG GT.

US shale boom not very beneficial for Mercedes-Benz owners

With shale gas booming in the United States, regular gas prices are being driven down to some $3.03 per gallon, which would be the lowest figure in the past four years according to a Bloomberg report. However, if you happen to be driving a Mercedes-Benz, you’re not likely to enjoy the benefits of this new energy development. The price gap between premium gas used to make high-end/luxury vehicles run and regular gas also happens to be at its widest in the last six years. That means the shale boom isn’t positively affecting the price of premium high-octane gas, so Mercedes drivers aren’t enjoying any new benefits out of shale. Shale gas can be… Continue Reading »

Don’t Worry, the V12 Engine is Not Yet Riding to Oblivion

Stricter laws are now in place, which require automakers to come up with more environment-friendly engines. This is the reason why car companies such as Mercedes-Benz are working so hard to make their vehicles more fuel-efficient and have lesser carbon dioxide emissions. Automakers have embraced solutions with turbocharging and displacement reduction to comply with the said rules. As a result, the engines of their latest models have become smaller. Despite the smaller engines, there remains the pressure for them to surpass or at least match the performance of their earlier bigger engines. Mercedes-AMG, in particular, recently replaced its 5.5-liter biturbo V8 engine in favor of the 4.0-liter version. With the… Continue Reading »
