Say goodbye to the Mercedes ML63. In 2016, it graduates to G-Class, becoming the GLE63, so we took one of the last hopped-up mini Mercs to Lime Rock Park's Winter Autocross see if the off-road Geländewagen badge is deserved. Here are five thoughts we had while hooning the bejesus out of a $114,000 race car… » 3/16/15 8:21pm 3/16/15 8:21pm

Exclusive Mercedes-Benz G500 4x4² Review Off-Road With GTspirit

As a European grown up in a narrow street in one of Europe's 16th century inner-cities I consider everything over the size of a BMW X3 a big truck. So you can imagine when I first came eye-to-eye with the Mercedes-Benz G500 4x4² show car I was a little impressed, no, frightened of the thought to drive this monster… » 2/21/15 10:34am 2/21/15 10:34am

​Mercedes-Maybach S-Class Pullman: This Is All Of It

Heads of State, dictators, kingpins, and mafioso, Mercedes has given you the greatest gift of all. Twenty-one-and-a-half feet of hyper-extended Maybach excess packed so full of luxurious decadence it should have a dedicated harem compartment next to the nose candy dispenser. This is Pullman. » 2/17/15 7:15pm 2/17/15 7:15pm

Here's What The First Maybach Mercedes 4x4 Will Probably Look Like

Mustache-Benz boss Dr. Dieter Zetsche has been quoted saying a Mercedes-Maybach SUV is "most likely!" Logic dictates that would basically be a GL, soon to be rebadged as GLS, with a bit of a body stretch and a private-jet interior. Subtle, quick, and decadently comfortable. » 1/30/15 2:44pm 1/30/15 2:44pm

The Mercedes-Benz C450 Is The Swabian Bruiser For Sane Speed Freaks

Mercedes has a slight, wonderful problem on its hands. Its hot AMG models used to be seriously quick, but lately they've crossed into insanity. Take the Mercedes-AMG C63, for instance, with the 504-horse twin-turbo V8 out of the Mercedes-AMG GT, which is just nuts for a small family car. For the slightly more staid… » 1/12/15 6:00pm 1/12/15 6:00pm

This Is Mercedes-Benz's Vision For The Ultimate Future Of Luxury

Ask a dozen people to define "luxury" and you'll get a dozen different answers. Maybe even more than that. But at its core, luxury is about having the means to do what you want, when you want.

Genius Dad Figures Out How To Convince His Kid To Go To Sleep

Let's be honest: "if you never go to sleep, Santa will never come" was about as convincing as "broccoli tastes good" or "you can't take a bunny to school" when you were a kid.

Mercedes And BMW Are Tricking People Into Buying Station Wagons

So I'm driving along the other day, and I get up behind the all-new Mercedes-Benz GLA, which I'm calling the "Glaw" to rhyme with "Draw," or perhaps "Haw," as in: "Haw Haw, you bought a Mercedes-Benz that looks like a wheeled catfish!" » 12/16/14 3:00pm 12/16/14 3:00pm

The $29,900 Mercedes Was Nothing More Than A Marketing Gimmick 

In September 2013 Mercedes released the compact CLA for $29,900. It was the first "affordable" Benz since the C coupe that Mercedes would much rather forget about.
