So the Merc SL is due for a facelift in the near future, but it's not as radical as the SLK's redesign, according to eMercedesBenz. On deck? More power, via an across-the-line power boost, with a displacement bump in one case and a reduction in the other. Nose and tail tweaks are in order, and the AMG model will also seea 24-horsepower bump, apparently to keep it ahead of the plebian Z06.
