Mercedes-Benz E-Class Lauded as Value Champion

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class was recently given the title of 2011 Value Champion after the executive sedan line emerged as the vehicle that had the lowest value loss among the upper segment.

Four-cylinder turbodiesel in the S-Class? Not in the U.S.

You have to admit, if there’s one vehicle from Mercedes-Benz’s model lines that you’d dream about owning, it has got to be an S-Class.

But now you’re going to see an S-Class with a four-banger diesel. So what gives? Evolution happened. Mercedes-Benz was able to create a four-cylinder engine with enough wallop that it’s willing to risk its reputation by putting it on their most prestigious S-Class models. This is the first time in 60 years that something like this has ever happened. So this truly is… Continue Reading »

New engines for flagship S-Class models

A car is only as good as the engine that purrs under its hood. And for a fancy German-engineered car to be considered really premium, it’ll take a heck of a hefty fine engine to pull off what it’s supposed to be capable of. And so, Mercedes-Benz announces a whole new lineup of engines to make its S-Class flagship range really stand out, starting with brand new V6 and V8 BlueDIRECT petrol engines to join ranks with current direct injection diesel injections. So what specific BlueEFFICIENCY technologies should you expect to be present on these new engines. Well, nothing less than a load-controlled oil pump and of course, low rolling… Continue Reading »
