The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is selling like moonshine at a speakeasy. At the Sindelfingen, Germany plant where the S-Class is built, employees have agreed to extend their shifts by 74 minutes per day beginning in 2014.

As these shots confirm, the new Mercedes GLK will be slightly larger than the model it replaces in order to make room for the smaller 2014 Mercedes-Benz GLA.

The only time I say, “Good news from Germany” is when it’s about a car (Although I hear their cuisine is up to “Hot Pocket level.”) Mercedes is going to offer its 2013 GLK with a diesel engine, in the US. Now that’s weird, because as far as I’ve seen from American, Swedish and Japanese […]
Photo courtesy of MotorAuthority Even though the GLK has only been around since 2010, it’s never to early for a facelift, is it? Apparently not, as the new compact SUV has been seen by the spies all around town. So what exactly is in store for the updated GLK?

Not unexpectedly, a facelifted Mercedes-Benz GLK has been caught in the wild by spy photogs, with only minimal coverings to its refreshed front and rear ends. As usual, only minor updates will bedeck the facelifted GLK, such as LED running lights and headlights with more angular planes in their execution. With its fairly new design,
