2009 Mercedes GLK Gets Naked on "Sex and the City" Movie Set

Our spy photographers caught a completely naked 2009 Mercedes GLK on the set of the new Sex and the City movie. The new Mercedes CUV sans camo is looking better than we expect co-star Sarah Jessica Parker probably does sans her own caked on camouflage-like makeup.

Probably not these specific Mercedes GLK test vehicles (with some fun n' friendly competitors) as they were spotted on the Autobahn rather than on a Michigan highway.

Crappy Newsletter Gets Us Pumped For Exciting Detroit Auto Show Unveils

It's a wonder we were actually able to suck any information out of this newsletter from the 2008 North American International Auto Show. Despite the gratuitous use of overlapping words, photos and colored boxes, we were able to focus on the text long enough to figure out there's some info on the unveilings we can… » 10/24/07 9:30am 10/24/07 9:30am

Mercedes Mini Ute to Be Called GLK, Officially

Got MLK? Mercedes doesn't. But it will soon have GLK, the now-officially chosen name for its upcoming compact SUV. As if that joke wasn't awkward enough, you can imagine how the one involving a slain civil rights leader, the county of Tuscaloosa, Alabama where Mercedes calls home in the US, and a fire hose would have… » 8/08/07 3:16pm 8/08/07 3:16pm

Spy Photos: Still More on the 2009 Mercedes GLK Mini Ute

Shooting it out on the Nürburgring with a rival BMW X3 is how the Mercedes GLK will prove its mettle in the mini-luxe SUV game. Analysts say it's one of the fastest growing segments, globally, and we're in for others from Audi (Q5) and Lexus.

Spy Photos: More on the 2009 Mercedes GLK

Spies caught the new Mercedes mini ute, the GLK, patrolling the streets in its spy-thwarting flack jacket. The competitor to the BMW X3 and upcoming Audi Q5 will be based on the new C-Class, which means it'll be built in Germany instead of in the deep south of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, where its larger sibling is birthed.… » 4/25/07 7:33am 4/25/07 7:33am
