Few vehicles have left the Autoblog staff so divided.
Many cars that come into our office are pretty mainstream. They're Chevys, Toyotas, Hyundais and such. But sometimes we get something special, such as a 2018 Mercedes-Maybach S560 4MATIC. Now it is the "entry-level" Maybach with just the 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 and the lowest Maybach base price. But, it still starts at a not unsubstantial $168,600, which also makes it the third-most expensive S-Class behind the V12 Mercedes-Maybach S650 and the most expensive V12 Mercedes-AMG S65. That V8
It was like telling a fourth grade class they were going to Disneyland. Upon landing in southern France to drive the 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class, the assembled group of jet lagged automotive writers were informed that they were not only about to drive the first next-generation G-Class ever (incredibly cool and exciting in its own right) but were also going to get a chance to drive a selection of classic G Wagens as well. An audible gasp was heard.
The road ahead is unpaved, rock-strewn and rut-rich. Deep puddles blast murky water across the windshield. Colossal three-blade windmills tower overhead, perilously sprouting like whitewashed redwoods at the outer edges of corners. The urge is to play it safe, to tackle this rally proving ground with the sort of caution you'd normally take off road.

The inclusion of the 48-volt EQ Boost system is part of what makes this powertrain so satisfying to use.
The 12-cylinder S65 Cabriolet is a stately boulevardier, a cavalier cruiser, meant to dominate via the sheer prodigiousness of output.
The bite of the 4.0-liter virus turns the donor Mercedes-Benz GLC all belligerent and shockingly fast.
Faster than GT and GT S, more livable than GT R.
It's good at what it does, but we've got our complaints.
Posher, burlier, and also more intelligent.
Go ahead and reward yourself. You deserve it.
Pretty and fast in the same package.
Controlled and in control, but never harsh.
The performance version of the coupe version of the crossover version of a C-Class.
