Sitting in traffic is one of America’s pastimes. Everyone has to sit in a sea of stationary cars on the highway from time to time whether it’s on I-95 going down to Florida or the I-5 at the beach in California. Luckily, some cars have ways of entertaining their occupants or at least keeping them placated until…
I have found it: the raddest press photo of any car, ever taken. You’re extremely welcome.
The what isn’t new: That auto shows, as we have come to know them, are dying. The who, however, is: Mercedes-Benz is the latest automaker that might elect not to show up at next year’s Detroit Auto Show.
The brands are fucking up this week. Fiat Chrysler took a pummeling for choosing to using a speech from Martin Luther King Jr. to sell some trucks in a Super Bowl ad. Now Mercedes-Benz is hitting the apology circuit, after the German automaker quoted the Dalai Lama on Instagram.
The Mercedes-Benz A-Class is the littlest Benz hatchback, and while in the past it’s had a three-pointed star, it’s never been all that... well, great. Evidently Mercedes is trying harder this time, as the new one that dropped today sure looks a hell of a lot more sophisticated.
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
It’s easy to think of the earliest figures in the automotive industry as nothing more but characterless stern faces from black and white photographs. But that doesn’t square with Wilhelm Maybach taunting cops and getting into a police chase with one of the very first vehicles powered by a modern gas engine.
There exists the implication that if you are driving a Mercedes-Benz S-Class, you are in something that is—at least on a few levels—the very best car in the world at the time it was produced. It’s the S-Class’s entire raison d’être, or whatever the hell that is in German. There are other luxury flagship sedans and…
It turns out that if you’re going to do something extraordinarily stupid in a car that results in a cop being injured, one of the busiest and most surveilled places in America isn’t the best place to try it. Two suspects have been arrested in connection with Sunday evening’s Times Square burnout and hit-and-run of a…
Are you tired of seeing small Mercedes crossovers everywhere yet? No? Great, because more are headed our way.
We are cruising around Detroit in a Mercedes S560 Coupe, and we will be very very sad to give it back. In the meantime, enjoy this photo.
Mercedes-Benz showcasing a first generation G-Wagen frozen in amber may have just been a marketing ploy to promote their tie-in with the rebooted Jurassic Park film franchise, but it served as an apt if unintentional metaphor for the vehicle. This has been a car frozen in time, with a body virtually unchanged since…
A New York City cop has been injured after trying to stop what appears to be a Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG from drifting through Times Square, and the incident was all caught on video.
The next-generation Mercedes G-Wagen is being hatched within the next few days at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show. I guess that makes this ’79 280 GE encased in “amber” the blueprint provider.
Someone in Rhode Island decided to venture out during the worst of this past week’s “bomb cyclone” that pummeled the North East. This would be quite an undertaking in any vehicle but one nameless resident decided that the perfect car for their winter trek would be a Mercedes SL with the top down.
The new Mercedes X-Class truck is finally real and, today, Mercedes unveiled some classy ways for you to use it, like when you’re camping in the Carpathian Mountains.
Long the preferred choice of Russian gangsters, hip-hop moguls and off-roading one-percenters, the Mercedes G-Class SUV has been an icon since it launched in the 1970s. Despite its undeniably cool looks, it still largely drove like a 1970s car thanks to modest upgrades over the decades. No more. The G-Class is…
The new 2018 Mercedes A-Class, which is finally coming to America, is getting nice-ified with things like an upgraded suspension, according to Autocar. More importantly, it will also be available in two performance models, the AMG A35 and the AMGA 45. And while it’s not totally clear if those models are are also…
