2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 AMG Coupe: This Is It

The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 AMG Coupe is an SUV that feels like a sports car. A cruiser that can pounce. Basically it's the most versatile accessory since the black t-shirt, according to the folks who built it. All we know so far is it looks like an X6 and comes with an options catalog longer than Santa's "naughty"… » 12/09/14 8:15pm 12/09/14 8:15pm

How You Can Hate The Mercedes G63 And Love The Cadillac Escalade

Until Bentley turns their 4x4 concept into reality, the Cadillac Escalade and Mercedes G63 are the two flashiest SUVs you can have. The Mercedes might be up a price bracket, but the Caddy is a superior luxury experience in just about every way... and fewer people throw rotten tomatoes at it. » 11/23/14 11:37am 11/23/14 11:37am

First Drive: Mercedes-AMG GT Isn't A 911 Fighter, It's More Than That

I have a problem. I've never managed to keep the throttle floored the entire stretch of Laguna Seca's front straight in anything over 500 horsepower. It's practically my home track, but as soon as I start climbing that crest, self-preservation kicks in and I lift. Every. Damn. Time. That changed in the Mercedes-AMG GT. » 11/12/14 9:47am 11/12/14 9:47am

​Mercedes-AMG Just Snagged A Stake In Motorcycle Maker MV Agusta

The rumors are true. Daimler has purchased a 25 percent stake in Italian motorcycle maker MV Agusta through its AMG performance arm, putting it (a quarter) on par with Audi, which purchased its rivals at Ducati in 2012, and of course BMW which has had its own motorcycle brand since the 1920s. » 10/31/14 11:51am 10/31/14 11:51am

No logic, all fun: Mercedes E63 AMG Wagon vs. Skip Barber race car

The Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S-Model station wagon makes no sense. Who needs to combine 577 hp, all-wheel drive, and a limited-slip differential with 57 cubic feet of storage and load-leveling air suspension? It's an odd concoction of brute force and practicality. There's no reason it should exist, but we love that it… » 10/20/14 11:43am 10/20/14 11:43am

Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG: Budget baller or the real AMG deal?

For many years now, AMG have been churning out ballistic machines with hand-built engines. The cars sole purpose has been to generate power, noise, and tire smoke. Now though, there's a new generation of AMG vehicles and one of the interesting spots in the lineup is occupied by the CLA45 AMG. » 10/07/14 2:48pm 10/07/14 2:48pm

The Twin Engined Mercedes A-Class

As potential performance cars go, the first generation Mercedes A-Class is not a vehicle that immediately springs to mind. After a Swedish magazine famously rolled one performing the elk test in 1997, chucking one around a corner at speed never sounded like a great plan. AMG had other ideas though, ideas that revolved… » 9/26/14 11:46am 9/26/14 11:46am

Oh Yeah, The Mercedes-AMG GT's Twin Turbo V8 Is Gonna Sound Real Angry

Mercedes-Benz and AMG are about to throw their hat into the 911-fighting game, but there's been a bit of controversy over the Mercedes-AMG GT's noise. When they put out some clips of the exhaust note a while back, the car didn't sound that impressive. I think we can lay those concerns to rest now. » 7/20/14 2:45pm 7/20/14 2:45pm

The Coolest Details of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG is the marque's flagship, the vehicle that every other car aspires to be. Its exterior lines have been given an elegant smoothing-over in the face of the previous generation's explicit flared-fender aggression. But, as we learned with the 2014 Porsche Cayman S, the devil's in the… » 6/20/14 4:33pm 6/20/14 4:33pm
