The German company is now operated by Daimler-Benz and headquartered in Stuttgart, Germany. In addition to producing automobiles, Mercedes-Benz also makes commercial trucks and buses in Europe.

In an age when luxury was all about sheltering the fortunate from the world around them, companies like Mercedes-Benz were satisfied simply to coddle their drivers and passengers in cocoons of leather and wood. But as luxury car buyers increasingly expect their vehicles to connect them with the world around them, Mercedes is increasingly investing in ...
Thanks to a decade of European crossovers with torrid performance, downsized engines with outsized performance and a mushrooming compact SUV segment, it's no longer the marvel it should be when we receive the specs on the 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA45 AMG. Well, almost not a marvel, because they've really put a point on this one: underhood is a turbocharged, ...
It's only been a week and a half since Mercedes-Benz revealed the new C-Class, and it'll likely be a while yet before the replacement for the C63 AMG comes along. But if you want to see a preview of what it'll look like, look no further than the AMG aero kit that has just surfaced. Expected to debut on the new C-Class at the fast-approaching Detroit Auto ...
Once known as the "baby Benz," the Mercedes C-Class has since been undercut by the hot-selling CLA. But don't think for a minute that means Mercedes has given up on the C-Class – which is, after all, its top-selling model line. In fact, since introducing the current C-Class in 2007, Mercedes has sold nearly two and a half million of them around the ...
Here is the Mercedes-Benz Concept GLA45 AMG in the flesh. The racing liveried crossover is a near-production-ready preview of what the hotted-up version of Mercedes-Benz's new small CUV will be like when it finally arrives in showrooms. Borrowing the powertrain from the CLA45 AMG and A45 AMG, the GLA45 is motivated by a 2.0-liter, turbocharged ...
A Rolls-Royce Phantom or a Bentley Mulsanne is great if you want absolute luxury regardless of the cost, but what if you want absolute luxury and manic speed, regardless of cost? Well, Mercedes-Benz will quite happily sell you this – the new, 2015 Mercedes S65 AMG, complete with 621 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque, courtesy of a majestic ...
This is one of those moments when we hate to see it leave, but we love to see it go. The subject at hand is, of course, the brilliantly brutal Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, the first vehicle developed fully by AMG. Last week we learned that Mercedes will cease to produce the company's flagship sportscar and send it off with a limited-edition model, the SLS AMG ...
After teasing it, unveiling it and giving us some details and a handful of photos over the weekend, Mercedes-Benz finally debuted the real AMG Vision Gran Turismo Concept at the LA Auto Show today, though it's a 1:1-scale model with no powertrain. The car was designed as a virtual supercar for Sony's Gran Turismo 6 racing simulation for Playstation 3 at ...
This is the Mercedes-Benz Concept GLA45 AMG, and what we mean by that is, "This is the Mercedes-Benz GLA45 AMG." Mercedes has just unveiled the liveried 'concept' at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show, giving potential customers a very good look at the newest lunatic in the AMG asylum - a 355-horsepower, 332-pound-foot crossover that uses the same 2.0-liter, ...
It's official, folks: 2014 will be the last year for the stunning Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. The gull-winged supercar first hit the scene in 2009, and it's seen its fair share of upgrades and special editions, but the best is yet to come. Mercedes-Benz has announced the SLS AMG GT Final Edition, which will debut at the LA Auto Show, with a limited run of 350 ...
With the SLS AMG going away, Mercedes could be looking to the virtual world for a supercar replacement. The Mercedes AMG Vision Gran Turismo was designed specifically for the Gran Turismo 6 video game, which will go on sale next month, and the automaker has released a teaser picture of the car on its Facebook page. More information about this car will be ...
It is an unjust world we live in. There are a number of cars on sale that we wouldn't be upset to see disappear. The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is certainly not one of those cars. With its absurd gull-wing doors and its wonderful, ridiculous, powerful 6.2-liter, AMG V8, it remains one of the most exciting cars on sale today, despite having hit the US market ...
There's little question that the new Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG is one seriously capable performance sedan. But as impressive as it is, at the level it competes, there are other options to consider. The Audi S8, BMW Alpina B7, Jaguar XJR and Maserati Quattroporte all offer similar levels of performance and power. The S65 on the other hand, with its plutocratic ...
If you were responsible for law enforcement in a country with all the money and oil in the world, what would you use as your patrol car? If you answered a 700-horsepower Mercedes-Benz G-Class, you're in the same boat as Brabus, which brought just such a beast to the Dubai International Motor Show this week. Expanding Germany's "Tune it! Safe!" program to ...
If you think Mercedes' lineup of passenger vehicles is overwhelming, just look to the European market and all the vans it sells there. Here we may only get the Sprinter and R-Class, but overseas there's the Citan, Vaneo, Viano and Vito as well. But word has it that Mercedes is planning on streamlining things a bit with a new V-Class. Expected to take the ...
By our story count, this year's Frankfurt Motor Show was one of the busiest auto shows on record. We brought you more than 70 reveals from the center of the action, and are still finding and compiling a lot of other content with Frankfurt-origins as well. With such a massive amount of raw data to choose from, picking just five debuts to highlight in our ...
Judging by how long we waited to get a clear shot of the Mercedes-Benz S500 Plug-in Hybrid, you'd have thought hybrid cars were only driven by Terminators and that the technology arrived only 48 hours ago through a wormhole in the Mercedes stand. The newest member of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class hybrid band - joining the S400 Hybrid and S350 BlueTEC Hybrid, ...
During my time here in Frankfurt, my gracious Volkswagen hosts have been shuttling me to and from the Messe in the very excellent (and very European) Multivan. But not just any Multivan – the top-of-the-line plush-tastic Business model, complete with six-passenger seating and the ability to turn the second-row seats a full 180 degrees, forcing ...
Now that we've already seen (and driven) the new-for-2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class in its standard, S550 form, it's time to set our sights on the rest of the model range. The next iteration to make its debut is this, the S63 AMG, taking the stage here in Frankfurt. No, the S63 isn't quite the top dog in the S-Class lineup – that'd be the S65 AMG, or ...
The Mercedes-Benz stand here in Frankfurt was indeed buzzing following the debut of the swoopy S-Class Coupe Concept, but another big debut from the German automaker came in the form of this, the 2015 GLA-Class compact crossover. As its nomenclature would suggest, the GLA is essentially a high-riding version of the A-Class (or CLA-Class) compact, and ...
