Base SL 550 2dr Roadster
2017 Mercedes-Benz SL 550

The Mercedes-Benz SL-Class two-seat roadster is now in its sixth generation, with 60 years of sports-car heritage re-imagined in a modern, technology-laden luxury automobile. The SL-Class is comprised of four models: SL450, SL550, AMG SL63 and AMG SL65. The SL450 features a 362-hp 3.0L twin-turbo V6 engine, while the SL550 is powered by a 449-hp 4.6-liter twin-turbo V8; both are mated to a new nine-speed automatic transmission with manual mode and paddle shifters. The AMG SL63 boasts a hand-built 577-hp 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8, as well as a seven-speed MCT (multi-clutch technology) transmission. The AMG SL65's larger 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 generates an immense 621 horsepower, and is paired with a seven-speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS automatic transmission. Standard equipment on every SL-Class model includes a power retractable hardtop with panorama glass roof, 19-inch aluminum wheels, LED headlights, push-button start, heated leather seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, HD/satellite radio, Bluetooth wireless connectivity, smartphone integration and a voice-activated navigation system. Safety features include anti-lock disc brakes, an electronic stability program (ESP) with integrated traction control, collision prevention assist, driver ATTENTION ASSIST and an automatically deployable rollover bar, as well as eight airbags. The Mercedes-Benz SL-class gets several changes for 2017, including dynamic new styling and enhanced standard equipment. Additionally, the SL400 has been rebadged as the SL450 (with a 33 horsepower increase), and a new nine-speed automatic transmission is introduced.
