Australian PR Trek Has Mercedes Experiencing A True Adventure

Aiming to show Australians that their G-Class wagens have what it takes to tackle the Outback, Mercedes planned and organized an almost 1,200 mile trek across the historic Canning Stock Route. This route used to be a major lifeline in getting cattle from remote ranches to Perth. The expedition planned by Mercedes would start from Halls Creek (Western Australia) to Wiluna. Though now unused for its original purpose, this route is recognized as a great adventure route for trekkers. Aiming to finish the route in 14 days, the organizers set off in 7 G-Class wagons, which are vehicles that have admittedly proven themselves to be capable off-road warriors.

2012 GL Seen Testing In Sweden

Although the 2012 Mercedes-Benz GL has no official launch date yet, it has already been spotted a number of times in heavily disguised form. In previous settings, observers have deduced that the GL will share the platform of the ML, although in stretched-out form. Now, it has most recently been seen in Sweden, obviously for some hard-edged testing in snow and icy conditions. The spy pics show a wide grill inspired by the R-Class and a front end reminiscent of the current E-Class. Additionally, new headlights and LED daytime running lights can be seen on the bumper. The rear of the vehicle was still successfully disguised so only conjecture will… Continue Reading »


AMG G55 Stomps Onto Indian Territory

Following the announcement of the relaunch of the Maybach brand in India, Mercedes has announced the introduction of the Geländewagen, more widely known as the G-Class.

Powered by a 500 horsepower 5.5 liter V8, the G55 does the 0-60 sprint in… Continue Reading »
