Mercedes-Benz GL is Motor Trend’s ‘SUV of the Year’

The 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL is the German automaker’s contender in the luxury SUV segment, and it would seem that the refreshed model for the sleek vehicle this year did not disappoint. This is evidenced by the GL’s citation as Motor Trend magazine’s SUV of the Year. SUVs are still popular vehicle options for many prospective drivers and switchers, and as such, the competition within the segment is still quite strong. Still, Mercedes-Benz was able to field an option held in high regard. To determine which would be the proud recipient of the award, Motor Trend took all the 2013 model year SUVs and rated them according to several criteria: engineering… Continue Reading »

Megaupload founder’s wife pleads return of confiscated Mercedes-Benz

They say that karma has a funny way of circling back towards people who gain from other people’s losses. It sure looks like the ugly truth for Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom whose extravagant lifestyle has been put on hold thanks to copyright infringement charges. Really, they had it coming. The wife even pleaded to the courts asking them to give back at least some of her property in order to keep their household thriving. Part of this property is a $202,000 G55 Mercedes SUV. “I am simply asking the courts to return my own property and make reasonable provision for our family’s ongoing maintenance and care,” says Mona Dotcom.

The new M-Class: More miles at less cost

Nice guys finish last eh? Apparently not if you’re driving the new generation Mercedes-Benz M-Class SUV. With its massive build – five doors, increased length and width, less height, heightened arm and leg space – comes more power. That’s right — more power. With a smaller engine, that is. Even without the old V6 3-liter turbo, the new twin-turbo diesel 2100 inline four powerplant sheds the same output at less cost – roughly two-thirds the fuel economy of the old engine. Greater efficiency comes at a price though. Less of a price, actually. It’s price tag is $10,000 less. You get 44 miles per galon, a 1,450km range out of… Continue Reading »

Spying on the next ML63 AMG

Interested in what the next generation ML63 AMG will look like? Well, here are a few spy shots to help you imagine. These photos show AMG’s flagship ML63 doing some testing in Europe. Don’t mistake these for a prototype that was spied upon earlier this year. This baby has larger cross-drilled brake discs behind even bigger sports wheels, while its rear has a characteristically ominous dual exhaust tail pipes. Now, comparing it to the current model, this test mule seems to have quite a similar wheel base, although it has shorter overhands up front and back, as differentiated from a more compact 2009 model. But, as with any comparison, it… Continue Reading »

Mercedes-Benz puts a premium on education, specifically automotive technology. That is why AT students at the Tuscaloosa Center for Technology, or TCT, will soon experience what it’s like to be working on cutting edge automotive technology. How is this possible? Through the generosity of Mercedes-Benz. The company is donating a pair of their high-end premium SUVs, namely a 2006 ML500 and a 2006 ML350, to TCT to help students of Automotive Technology better understand the workings of a world-class premium vehicle.
