2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class [w/video]

Technology Meets Magic In The New Standard Bearer If you're like us, you've been eagerly awaiting this car for the better part of 10 years. No, not the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class specifically, but rather the technology underneath it. Perhaps you remember the Bose active suspension system? Yes, Bose – a company better known for overpriced audio equipment – revealed an amazingly sophisticated automotive suspension system about a decade ago, demonstrating it via a pair of 1994 Lexus LS luxury sedans. One LS was fitted with the system, and the other went without. The two could... Read More

    1405321200

    Mercedes-Benz has officially unveiled what may be the most opulent coupe in the brand's storied history in the form of the 2015 S65 AMG Coupe. Based off the four-door S65, the two-door model may be something of a known commodity, although that doesn't make it any less desirable. As is typical for an AMG product, the heart of the S65 Coupe is a 6.0-liter, ...

    1404478740

    The Lexus LS is old. Sure, it received a refresh for model year 2013, but it hasn't had a clean-sheet redesign since George W. Bush was in office. It's the oldest vehicle in its segment, debuting in 2007, a full year before the current-gen BMW 7 Series, two years before the Hyundai Equus and Jaguar XJ and three years before the Audi A8. This is ...

    You've seen the power a 600-horespower engine can produce on a racetrack. You may have seen the results of what 600 horsepower looks like on a local highway. But have you seen what 600 horsepower can do in an elevator shaft? This might be a new one. Mercedes-Benz introduced its 2015 S63 AMG Coupe in New York on Tuesday night, literally driving the ...

    The 2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe is gorgeous. That's a fact. We fell in love with it in concept form at the Frankfurt Motor Show last fall, and swooned over its production-ready body at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this month.

    Maybach was an audacious idea - a Mercedes-Benz that could truly do battle against Rolls-Royce - that ended up being a catastrophe, thanks to lackluster sales. After a 10-year stretch that was punctuated by nothing more exciting than the stillborn Exelero and Jay-Z and Kanye West attacking one with a blowtorch, we thought Mercedes was done with the ...

    If you're hankering for a V12-powered Mercedes-Benz S-Class, there's very, very little to complain about in regards to the 621-horsepower, 738-pound-foot S65 AMG. That car will hit 60 in just 4.2 seconds and embarrass a fair few sports cars along the way. What if you need a bit more relaxed power delivery, though, but aren't willing to associate with the ...

For Mercedes-Benz, those benefits have apparently been lacking relative to the German brand's luxury ...
